Learn about Dr. Bowman

Care Philosophy

Starting at birth, a child s body and brain grow very quickly. Children learn to move their bodies, play, and communicate. We call this developmental growth . It is important to closely monitor your child s physical and developmental growth. This is especially true during the first three years of life! Children who were born early, or were very sick at birth, have an increased risk of having some problems with physical and developmental growth. The DAC staff will work closely with you to follow your child s physical and developmental progress.

Richmond, VA |
She is not at all a doctor I would recommend to any parents, especially to those seeking help for their special needs child like me. She doesn't explain much of anything and doesn't seem to have any real solutions for serious issues. I will be looking for a new primary doctor for my daughter.

Dr, Bowman has a child with special needs and is clearly jaded in her response to others wondering what future prognosis there may be for their child. She comes across as unsympathetic/cold and that her personal path is undoubtedly the same or worse that her patients might traverse. Her assessments around our child were 200% wrong; consider her opinion as a point of data not truth. Given all the fantastic doctors in our journey would NOT recommend.
in Chesterfield, VA |
My experience with Dr. Bowman has been truly a blessing. Its ALL about the well-being of your child!! Being young and a first time mother to not only a beautiful princess but a special needs child, having Dr. Bowman as her primary physician has given me life; she is very involved in my daughters care and I appreciate ALL of the love and encouragement she has shared with both my family and I. I would most definitely recommend Dr. Bowman, you will not be disappointed. Thanks for everything!! 3
