The Resident Physician and Dr. Bower were both very thorough and very friendly. L liked both very much.

Dr. Bowen is fantastic. He always explains everything and makes sure I'm on the same page. He is genuinely concerned for all his patients, as are the people around him. You're lucky to have Dr. Bowen.

I was just discharged the morning of my appointment from general surgery and was treated very gently by the orthopedic department. Although I am scheduled for knee replacement surgery, Dr. Bowen expressed the importance of being completely healed from my surgery before performing any other surgery.

Dr. Bower is the best care provider I have ever had.
Dec 12, 2016

Dr. Bowen & his staff are great. He makes sure I understand everything, I can ask him as many questions as I want & he takes his time to answer me so I understand. You should have an excellent rating for this.

For 4 and a half years I have had excellent care from Dr. Bowen. It's not easy to tell someone they have Stage 4 cancer that has spread to most bones. He has always answered my questions, been very friendly, efficient and professional. He is truly excited for my progress and even sent me a hand written note to thank me for a gift. I would recommend Dr. Bowen to anyone!

Have already recommended.

Enjoyed & very satisfied. Dr. Thomas Bowen MD is wonderful and I thank him!

Another MD spend more time with me than dr. Bowen. I talked to Dr Bowen maybe 5 minutes? The other MD was very nice, and he shared with Dr. Bower everything I told him. I think he is in training. I do understand that part. But it would be nice if Dr Bowen could spend alittle more time with the patient. I know he is on a time limit, because of that, I felt like he was in a hurry to go to the next patient. I'm not blaming Dr Bower, He is a wonderful Dr!!! Its the GMC that allows very short time with patients. Doctors should not be pushed to a time limit when it comes to patients, that is one of my main concerns about Geisinger , things get missed because of it, and we feel like a number not a person. Dr Bower is the best!!!! He saved my life, and he always makes me feel important when I'm there. System needs some work at time limits!!!

Dr. Bowen gave me my mobility back through right hip revision in 2013 and left hip replacement in 2015. Can't thank him enough! George Henkel

The result of my visit was to have surgery. The doctor did a great job presenting the option and allowing me to make the decision. He was extremely informative and understanding as I was quite surprised and noticeably upset with the only option available. Unfortunately, since the visit, my insurance company has gotten involved and, in general, I don't feel the same level of support from the office.
Apr 25, 2016
I have been seeing Dr. Bowen for 7 yrs. now. He is the one who replaced my hip. I hope I will be coming to him for my care another 7 yrs. I am going into my 80's soon. He is a wonderful doctor & caring.

Dr. Bowen is an excellent and very caring doctor.
March 23, 2016
Dr Bowen is the only reason I continue care at Geisinger. Recent experiences in 2 other departments with my mother at Geisinger caused me to change her care to Cleveland Clinic. You can screw with me, but you are NOT going to screw with my mother.
