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.

The issue I had is not listed here: This appt. was in Danville, but I live near GWV. I needed a bone scan - The resident phys. said someone would call me to schedule in Wilkes-Barre, but no one called. When I finally got directed to Nuclear Medicine @ GWV, the person on the phone said she doesn't know that someone needs an appt. unless she gets a call from Danville.

*Dr. Bowen is the most sensitive & caring dr., I am so happy that he is my doctor I believe he saved my life.
Aug 5, 2015
Dr. Bowen was very personable and informative. He showed a concern for my situation and was very understanding. I was very comfortable with the visit and outcome.

Dr. Bowen is one of the most professional, kind, and compassionate doctors I know! Ever since Feb. of 2012 with my diagnosis of stage 4 breast cancer/ hip replacement, he has answered all my questions, and has been very patient and courteous. I would recommend him to anyone! Barb Smith was a nurse on my floor 3 and a half years ago. At that time she made sure my room and bed were comfortable, helped me manage my pain, and sat with me when my husband went to pick up my son. We've kept in touch ever since, and she made the effort to come visit me during this doctor visit. Geisinger gives great care!!

*Dr. Bowen is an attentive listener, a caring provider, and most wonderfully of all educates himself on what he does not understand. Instead of merely relying on his own experience, he seeks knowledge on topics and effectively implements plans based on the knowledge he has gained. Phenomenal doctor!

*Dr. Bowen is great - a great personality, very friendly.
June 24, 2015
He has always taken time to explain my condition and has gone out of his way to understand our circumstances. He did a great job in removing my tumor and follow-up.

Dr. Bowen and his intern James Huston were wonderful. They put me quickly at ease and showed great concern for my symptoms and health. I had utmost confidence they would help me. They are both a great assett to the hospital. I would highly recommend Dr. Bowen and Geisinger to all my friends and family.

I feel it would be more comforting to have seen x-rays and have them explained to me.
March 13, 2015
The wait time was short and the wait time for the doctor was short.So that for me was a plus because i had to go to work after my appointment.
Feb 27, 2015
Dr. Bowen has traits not typical of other providers. He is very concerned about my health issue as if it were his own issue. I couldn't be happier with the care he has provided to me and the consideration he has given my family over the past four years. He is a positive example, other MD's might follow his lead.
Feb 23, 2015
Dr. Bowen listens and makes me feel as if he would take as long as necessary to answer all my questions. He is A++. I consider him to be a top surgeon and have had good results from my surgeries he did for me.

I really like Dr. Bowen & think he is a great doctor. He has been my doctor for 7 years with my medical problem & he cares about my well being.
Feb 18, 2015
This Doctor is a great human and I have complete faith in him. Would and have recommended him to others.
Feb 13, 2015
Dr. Bowen and his staff are A+ in my mind. The whole Geisinger experience from testing to surgery to follow up has been has been great.
Feb 11, 2015
I have been seeing Dr. Bowen for several years. I personally would not want to see anyone else. He has a great disposition and a friendly concerned attitude that you like to find in a doctor. However, this type of care and concern is something you don't find all the time.
Feb 6, 2015
Dr. Bowen is an excellent doctor & I have recommended him to friends.
