Very Professional and personable. I did have to wait a little while in the waiting room but he's obviously a popular Doctor. Some reviews bashed him for being "arrogant" but I didn't get that impression at all. I would call it confidence and that's what you want in a Physician. I've been to a number of Podiatrists in the area and he is Top notch.

Great experience for a doctors office... He was thorough in examination of a foot issue, addressed issue, and was concise about followup care. I would definitely recommend Dr Bowlin as a Podiatrist
in Jacksboro, Tn |
My husband had charcot and had to have surgery twice. He did a horrible job. We went to other drs. and the only way they can fix this mess is to amputate all or part of his foot. We would not recommend him to anyone. We would fill charges if we could. He was more interested in sports than doctoring.

Thank you Dr Bowlin for all you have done to help my husband ,you are a blessing to our family ,You helped us with getting my husband on a road to recovery ,
in Knox County, TN |
I had to wait for over an hour for the doctor to come in the room and then he can in and said I needed surgery and was out the door in 2 minutes. I'm finding someone else
in Knoxville, TN |
Dr. Bowlin was very personable, very informative, and very efficient. I liked him very much.
I Waited over an hour for my appointment. When I finally got called back he came into room & was extremely short and very arrogant. He seems to be that way with patients and staff. Will not return!

His nurse made me bleed when she cut my toenails
