P.A. Great. Jim Bowen. Prefer him over spine doctors. Anticipates questions and helps me think in terms of broad issues not just answering my questions.

It was like meeting an old friend when he came in! He explained any medical terminology I didn't understand and listened carefully and with his full attention when I was talking. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Dr. Bowen was absolutely perfect!! He was cordial, on top of my concerns, took time to explain to me and my husband how and what his plan would be.. He ordered X-rays, in which I had done before I left. I'll also have a MRI done in Ashtabula before my next visit. GREAT job to your entire staff. Thanks much and God Bless youins and yours.

This was the first time I had seen this provider and I thought that he was really great!! Very knowledgeable kind and helpful. That is why I am choosing the clinic to have my surgery done

Usually I have no problems with CLEVELAND clinic. And dr. Bowen was excellent and a down to earth dr, easy to talk to an he talked to you and explained everything in a manner that every dr needs to, for instance we are not dr therefore we don't understand all the medical terms used, but dr Bowen didn't do that, he explained everything as if the roles were reversed, and was very passionate with his work. Also showed my MRI from yrs ago, and I saw 3 drs before him and no one ever showed me the mri or explained anything about it n the results but dr Bowen took the time to show me it and the problems and explained everything so I could understand the results. Very excellent dr would definitely go to him again if need and have also referred people to see him and told him how he's an honest dr I believe. Because he felt like he could help me with my neck so he referred me to a specialist and I appreciate that alot. Because many dr will use you as a gunea pig but he's honest. Thumbs up to him n on the scale 1-10, I'd give a 9 because no one is perfect.
