Patient Comments (3)

I think he's a wonderful doctor. I've gone to him for many years. The only thing I don't like about the office is that SOME of the nurses are snooty and rude, but that does not depict the work of Dr. Bowers in any way. I highly would recommend!

Bowers is the worst excuse for a doctor I have ever been to. At my first appt, he walked in looking down his nose at me, didn't check my MRIs or injury history (I was hit with a utility truck while riding a skateboard), he looked at pain medication and proceeded to call me an addict and say there...more
