Excellent service and referral was made almost immediately with a scheduled appointment made for the next day. Saw the referral doctor today with a diagnosis made. Better care and follow up than my primary care doctor.

I could not have asked for any better treatment from Dr. Bowden and his staff. I call him my Miracle Doctor. He is very professional and compassionate in his care. I rate him above and beyond your scale of 0-10 with 10 being the highest as he exceeds this with hands down. NO ONE I HAVE ever seen can compare. He is exceptional.

I love Dr. Bowden as one of my providers. He is caring and thorough and spends as much time with you that you need.

April 11, 2018

Dr. Bowden and his staff were professional, listened to my questions and comments, and treated me with respect and courtesy. Also Dr. Bowden took the time to show me my MRI scans and explained thoroughly what they mean in relation to my medical issue.

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

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!
