New Sewickley Township, PA |
I would not recommend Dr Bowers, and I have already cautioned several people not to see him. He has excellent credentials and is probably a decent surgeon, but he is arrogant and condescending. His diagnosis was wrong, luckily caught by an excellent OD. The office administration is dysfunctional. 2+hour wait on first visit. They returned my copay, which I sent back to them. They continue to bill my insurance for the last visit, and it keeps getting denied.

Dr. Bowers is a surgeon of unparalleled skill & professionalism. Words cannot adequately express the gratitude felt by my husband after his trauma cataract removal & successful lens replacement procedure. His confidence is contagious. He makes the patient & family comfortable, educating about all steps of surgery & recovery. His kindness, knowledge, & sense of humor eases all anxiety about eye surgery. His staff Tracey, Jana, & quite frankly the entire practice are amazing.
