I suffer from health anxiety and Dr. Bowley is one of the rare Dr's I've met whom I trusted right away. He spent time with me, answered all my questions, explained everything to me, and really seemed to care about me as a patient. I never felt rushed and I am very happy that I selected him as my neurologist. He's smart, knowledgable, well-educated, accomplished in his field, and he's very open and patient. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Bowley is professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and will spend the necessary time with his patients. He is not one of these doctors that make you feel like your wasting their time. He always comes up with a game plan in order to make you feel better. I highly recommend him.

I have had a very poor experience with this Doctor. I believe if he is able to diagnose you himself he will be an ok doctor for the patient. He is very arrogant and over confident and puts down other doctors if they do not support his opinion. In my case he has been way off base and has ignored several symptoms that do not support his theory. He will pump you full of drugs and not follow through with how you are doing. He is also not responsive. I have seen 10 doctors and he has been the worst.
Outstanding Doctor. Helped me when nobody else did. Highly recommend him.

Incredible! When I first visited Dr. Bowley, I'd already visited two other neurologists (continuously) and had been in their care for several years. I'd also been confined to a wheelchair. Needless to say, I was a complicated case. Nonetheless, Dr. Bowley immediately began to see what others had missed and went to work fixing the problems. I received a complicated diagnosis for a condition that would have debilitated further had he not intervened. I also no longer use a wheelchair. Yay doctor!

I have seen Dr. Bowley for over a year now. I have quite a few problems with one of them being epilepsy. Dr. Bowley takes all of my issues very seriously and yet has a great personality and sense of humor. I would recommend him to anyone that needs a great neurologist.

I had an appointment with Dr. Bowley, and experienced some major problems during the time I was with him. He was very sensitive to what was going on, and spent a lot of time helping me through it. This appointment ending up being very long, because of what I was going through. I could not have asked for a better Neurologist. He is great!
