Dr. Bowman is intelligent, professional, and friendly. She is such a kind soul and really makes you feel comfortable and like you're in the best hands. I never questioned her advice or ability. You can tell she loves helping people fix their problems, not just throw a bandaid on it and write you a script. Dr. Bowman is a 10 out of 10 in my opinion.. — Mrs B.

Very professional care — has always been and still is. Having seen Dr. Bowman over a month ago for a very consistent right hand joint pain in my palm. Following a thorough inspection and discussing the options, two injections quickly followed. Good job done. After more than a month later, my previous constant companion now only pops up when I abuse it. I want to thank Dr. Bowman and the entire staff for taking care of me. — Don M.

Came in with pain in my right hand. Dr. Bowman took a good look at it, diagnosed the problem, performed an appropriate procedure, administered medication and sent me on my way. Feeling better already. I trust OAM doctors implicitly. — Michael Y. K.

Dr. Bowman, it was a pleasure seeing you at my appointment. The thing I liked best about you was how you explained my problem in detail and why I needed surgery, actually using words that I can understand. Thanks again. — Theresa F.

Dr. Bowman listened to what I had to say and then did an exray to see what was going on. From there she offered me several options which allowed me to feel I was a part of my care. I never felt rushed. Everything was explained to me so I knew what to expect ahead of time, from the assistant to the x-ray tech. They did an amazing job! — Angie T.
