Dr Bowden is always friendly and in a good mood, explaining things so they can be understood.

February 09, 2018

Dr. Bowden operated on my dad and my wife in the same week and did outstanding jobs on their brain and spine, respectively. He reviewed the mri with me on my back and explained everything in detail and took the time to answer any questions I had. He and his team have our upmost trust and confidence. We will not hesitate to deal with him on any Neurological issue. I just hope he is here to stay in Erie!

I was made to wait 45 minutes for my appointment even after the PA came in and said that you doctor would be right in. I had to threaten to leave before someone finally responded and got the doctor, who then barely acknowledged that I had been made to wait for so long. He then spent less than 5 minutes with me.
