He successfully repaired my upper herniated disc about a year ago - all is well. Nice guy, not overly talkative but was straight forward which I appreciate. Too many doctors that sugar coat stuff so he worked well for me. Was referred to me by a close doctor friend (surgeon) that he has sent family to in the past - all good recommendations. My mother recently used Dr. Bowen for back surgery and all is going as expected. Will see him again if needed and will refer friends/family to him.++++
Terrible doctor, would not recommend to anyone! Did not spend sufficient time or care in my appointment, and there was only one other patient in the office. Dr. Bowen did not examine my spine and was very abrupt and blunt.

I was very dissapointed with my visit with this dr he spent no more than 5 minutes with me didn't do anything but push on my legs a little. And even told me back surgery does not help back pain . I really would not recommend if your hurting badly.
