I had septoplasty and turbinoplasy by Dr. Bowman in November, and I was very satisfied with the results. I found that he did not proactively offer a lot of information, but I know that it can be difficult for surgeons to guess how much information patients want. He was quite willing to answer any question that I asked -- never impatient or condescending. Many of my questions could have been answered by handouts that could have been given to me when I first saw him about having these surgeries.

I saw Dr. Bowman due to vertigo and other ear issues. He and his staff were very professional. Dr. Bowman listened to my health complaints and was very easy to talk to and understand. He did not perform any unnecessary treatments, which I am greatful for. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends!

Dr. Bowman is an excellent physician. He takes the time to explain what your condition is, what to expect, how to fix it, and what your results will be. I had a rhinoplasty and sinus surgery last week and had my follow-up today, I couldn't be more pleased. Dr. Bowman is kind, gentle, and very professional.

I had been dealing with recurring sinus infections for a number of years. In recent months the problems related to my sinus issues became severe enough to consider surgery. I am very pleased with the care I received from Dr Bowman and his staff. I am still in the healing process but have every confidence that my situation will be much improved due to the surgical procedure performed by Dr Bowman.

Dr. Bowman was terrific. He took the time to explain my condition and then answered ALL my questions. He was very knowledgeable and talked to me in a way I could understand. He was very patient and didn't seem like he was rushing just trying to get to the next patient. He was also very nice and personable and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend Dr. Bowman.

Dr. Bowman was a wonderful physician. He addressed each of my concerns warmly with an attitude of interest. He gave his clinical physician opportunities to look at unusual patterns in my ear and gave me opportunities for questions. Excellent visit with appropriate follow-up appointments.

I have seen Dr Bowman twice, and at both visits I was greeted warmly, felt comfortable in voicing my concerns, and left grateful for his treatment plan based on my diagnosis. In fact, at my recent appointment he discovered another issue, and his recommendation of a treating physician enabled me to get an appointment the next day. When Dr. Prussian left the area, I was worried that I wouldn’t find an ENT physician as competent or considerate as he, but Dr. Bowman is both of these. His staff is also helpful and friendly. I hope he will remain in the NRV.

I've had a condition for over 8 years that Dr. Bowman was able to diagnose. He is the 5th doctor I have been to. He was very professional and friendly, loved his bedside manner. I would highly recommend him. His office was neat and clean and his staff was very friendly as well. I was seen right away after I filled out the paperwork for my first visit.
