There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.

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!

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.

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 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.

Dr. Bowen & his staff are wonderful and an asset to the medical staff at Geisinger. He performed my double knee replacement 5 yrs. ago & recently removed a benign tumor from my knee. I trust him completely & have recommended Geisinger & Dr. Bowen to others needing double knee replacement=he's the best!

Dr. Bowen is fantastic. It's a blessing and a curse. A curse because he has so many patients and therefore, his office is so busy.
