I was upset to learn that I had skin cancer on my face, and I did a lot of research on treatment methods and MOHS surgeons before I chose Dr. Bowman. Now, 7 months post surgery, I am so glad I went with him. I agree with reviewers that stated Dr. Bowman is "a perfectionist" and "an artist." My scar is barely visible, and most importantly, I am cancer free. I feel Dr. Bowman is worth the drive if you are coming from out of town. He is Fellowship Trained and highly skilled. You can relax and know you are in the best possible hands. His office also worked well with my HMO insurance, getting all necessary approvals to ensure coverage. Many thanks, Dr. Bowman!

Dr. Bowman performed an excellent surgery to remove a carcinoma from my nose bridge and then rearranged the skin to leave minimal scar tissue. Judging by the scar, he is a skillful surgeon. Not only am I happy with the results of the surgery, I give him credit for all his wonderful staff who made the experience much better. Also, as a self paying patient, I was grateful to find his office worked with me and is listed as a preferred provider on Healthcare Bluebook.

My 82 year old mother had a Slow Mohs procedure in Jan. Had 13 visits since Jan and never saw Dr. Bowman postoperative except 1 time only because she insisted. Constantly told incision was fine. I'm a RN with 28 years experience who does not live locally. My father sent me pictures of her flap that was done. No it did not look fine. I consulted a plastic surgeon and a dermatologist and sent the pictures. They immediately brought my mom in. She has a horrible staph infection that was left untreated. She had been given 6 rounds of the same antibiotic by Dr. Bowman's office over a 8 week period. I would think that when you didn't see improvement after the 2nd or 3rd round you might consider changing the treatment. She was given no treatment options except slow mohs which is not necessarily the best treatment for malignant melanoma however provides the most reimbursement to the physician after further investigation. I'm completely disgusted with this physician.

I had a small basal cell carcinoma in the crevice of my nose that needed to be removed and repaired. From the second I walked in on the day of the surgery, until the second I walked out, I was informed, well taken care of, and they made sure I felt at ease and comfortable. Really top notch service and care.

Hand down the best medical office in our area. The office is clean and calming, all staff is exceptional friendly and knowledgeable , Anvi stands out with her caring and professional demeanor, her memory is amazing when you come back for your annual visit. Timely calls for lab results, easy to make appointments. Dr. Bowman caught my husbands skin cancer and encouraged us to seek treatment at Moffit Cancer Center in Tampa. His recommendation lead to removal of cancer and my husband is now cancer free.

Dr. Bowman and the staff are fantastic. They are attentive, courteous, and highly professional. I am impressed by how they listen to my concerns, thoroughly check the areas in question, and then develop a comprehensive treatment plan. Every member of the team is skilled and pleasant, checking in with my comfort every step of the way. I have had surgery at their top-notch surgery facility several times and each time I was treated extremely well. Dr. Bowman is an amazing surgeon, working hard to minimize the scarring while removing all the cancerous areas. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr. Bowman and the Bowman Institute.
