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.

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.

Love Dr Bowen. Been to see him twice and he knew exactly what was wrong and took care of me. Very down to earth, easy to talk to. One of the few Dr's I have had that I can be completely honest with, which is most important to me. Highly recommend!!

Mr Bowen was very nice explaining everything. He referred me to IRD and I'm hoping I can get in for the procedure. I'm schedule for consultation another five weeks away. Seems to be dragging out for compression fracture since February.

Did not bother to make the referral to pain management that he said he was going to do. I felt the whole time I was an interruption to his day.

Had a great experience with DR Bowen. He took his time in explaining the details of my condition and options available. At no time did he make us feel rushed and answered all of our questions thoroughly.
