Dedicated to the practice of helping others achieve inner happiness and peace, Dr. Kenneth E. Fowler has commanded the minds of many and succeeded in guiding them to more harmonious and prosperous lives. Dr. Fowler came to Florida in 1988 to pursue his undergraduate degree at Florida State University. Upon receiving his Bachelors of Science degree in Economics with a business minor, Dr. Fowler went on to pursue a Masters Degree in Mental Health from Florida A&M University. A drive to help others and ambition would not let Dr. Fowler stop there. He went on to receive a Doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy from Florida State University, and established his private therapy practice Systemic Effects. He is a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) and an Approved Supervisor for mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists and social workers. Throughout his time in Florida, Dr. Fowler has been involved with programs ranging from Godby's Teen Life Options Program that assists 9th graders that are having a hard time adjusting to high school, to the DADS Project where he teaches a monthly parenting class to incarcerated fathers at Leon County Jail. This class teaches the fathers effective parenting tools and how to reconnect with their children while also providing substance abuse counseling. He is a strong advocate for children and has worked with children of all ages to help them work on a myriad of issues. Dr. Fowler has also served as an adjunct assistant professor at Florida State and Florida A&M Universities. His students revere him as a compassionate professor that truly inspires them to carry forward many of his lessons throughout their lives. He has a strong belief that learning can be a fun and inspired experience without a punitive component. This has been reflected in his teacher ratings and student responses. With Dr. Fowler's background in business and being a small business owner himself, he has been a consultant and strategic advisor to several businesses over the years ranging from small to large businesses. He is able to help companies with personnel issues such a hiring, retention, team building, and management. Dr. Fowler believes that successful companies address employee issues in and outside of the work environment. Treating the "whole" employee has multiple benefits that enhance the employee as well as the entire work environment. He has been successful in helping companies deal with growth and the changing dynamics that accompany those transitions. As a result of his expertise in psychological trauma, Dr. Fowler was called to respond in New York City following the 9/11 attacks. As a leader in his field, he was able to help with this national tragedy. His work with natural disasters led to him being called to assist with the Hurricane Katrina disaster by debriefing first responders who were exposed to the aftermath of the trauma. Currently, he consults with the Southcom Command of the United States Armed Forces to help returning soldiers and their families deal with the effects of war as well as post traumatic stress disorder. Dr. Fowler trains other therapists in this difficult work of trauma and crisis. In 2005, Dr. Fowler decided to pursue his dream and started his own business, Systemic Effects. The work that drives him most is providing individual, couple, and family therapy; as well as assisting traumatized individuals ranging from rape victims to victims of terrorist attacks. His ability to listen and concern for healing are at the heart of his success as a therapist. Systemic Effects provides consulting and training to businesses that are experiencing low employee morale, workplace violence, or personal tragedy as well. Dr. Fowler's ability to apply the systemic approach to businesses has allowed him to help businesses function more effectively and productively. His seminars on conflict resolution, personality differences, and inspired management are just a few of the topics that have helped business owners and their employees apply to their work environment. He has become affectionately known as Florida's "Dr. Ken."

What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.

What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?

What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
