Memphis, TN |
I've taking my mom 3times in 6wks. Two of them were for her exam & each one took 15-30mins, however, We sat in the lobby for almost 4hrs each time & it was so crowded that they asked people to sit another area.

Very displeased with the service at Dr. Bowden's office on Monroe. I went to this office with c/o IBS symptoms. I was seen by a nurse practitioner NOT a doctor. This nurse prationer was very incompetent and rude. She did not even physically examine my abdominal area. She asked me questions, took my vitals and gave me samples for an acid reduction medication. This type of medication would not even address my lower abdominal cramping, pain, and constipation . Terrible!! Stay away!!

I called regarding terrible stomach cramps and extreme bloating. I thought it was gluten-related or IBS-related. I told them I had been off gluten for a month and felt much better - no stomach cramps or bloating. They told me to eat gluten because they were going to do some tests. I don't get to see Dr. Bowden, instead, I see the nurse practitioner, Daphne Beech. She was an idiot and does not listen to you. I told her what my symptoms were and how I felt off gluten/on gluten. I will not go back.

I only saw him for a few minutes, which was good for me since it means I had a normal colon result. But I found no reason not to like him or his professionalism. And every person in his center that I had an encounter with was as friendly and professional as he was.

Had three appointments, seen Dr one time for about three minutes. Lets nurse's consult on test results and appointments.
