What People Say About Dr. William Bowman, MD
Reply
He is an excellent and very experienced doctor. He did amazing surgery on my right knee a removed a large benign tumor. Comparing to my same knee surgery by other surgeon in 2011, this time I had a very minimal pain after the surgery and my recovery time was quick. Thank you and your team of expert for taking care of me.
