Visited for a pulmonary function test and a follow-up virtual visit to discuss results. The office is well-run and my appointment occurred on-time after arriving. Everyone I interacted with in the office was both professional and courteous. The virtual follow-up with Dr. Bowerfind was good. No technical problems, started reasonably on time, and Dr. Bowerfind himself is easy to talk with, is patient, and generates the impression he encourages your participation in understanding things and deciding on next steps. I would refer any family or friends to him and this office without hesitation.

I did not feel rushed at my visit with Dr. Bowerfind. He listened to my concerns and explained possible strategies to try to improve my situation. He used charts to explain my lung status, and explained what the charts meant too. The staff were very friendly and my wait time was minimal.

Genuinely concerned. Asks all the appropriate questions that indicate that concern. Very concise easy to understand explanations. Always seems to be on the alert for the little things that could make a big difference/have a significant impact. Takes the time to listen. As I told my wife, 'It would be fabulous if all doctors you encountered exhibited this level of interest and communication.' Good doc...good person!!!
