What People Say About Dr. Richard Bowers, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I'm very disappointed with the service I received today. I had surgery today and Dr. Bowers prescribed me pain medicine that I'm allergic to. When the hospital staff realized the problem they told me to go to his office and get a prescription for a different medicine. The doctors office sent me home from surgery with Tylenol and caffeine. It was like they mad at me and want me to suffer because of their mistake. The butaltibital should help by the third or forth day but not on these first days.

Dr Bowers has been my obgyn since my first menstrual period... 37 years. I trust him completely with making decisions for my health. He really is a wonderful person and a great doctor. I will miss him dearly when he retires.

Dr Bowers is a wonderful Dr. He listens to you, he's compassionate, caring and does what he can do to take care of your problems. Don't want to ever see him retire.
