This was our first visit with Dr. Brian Bowen and we can’t even begin to tell you how impressed we werewith EVERYTHING about this practice! We were greeted by the friendly staff at the front desk, then just about immediately taken back to the exam room. After just a couple of minutes, Dr. Bowen came in. What a delightful, kind, thorough, knowledgeable and just overall great person he was. I know this is quite an effusive review, but we were that impressed!! Thank you for a great first visit...we look forward to the next appointment in three months.

This was my first time too see Dr Bowen. His detailed explanation of this particular long time problem made sense as I have had various issues with my feet for decades. I am just starting the long term treatment plan so we will see how this helps.

Had my first visit, Dr. Bowen is a knowledgeable and caring doctor. He explained the details of my injury, how to treat it, and answered my questions. Also said to call him if i had any questions any time. I havea follow up in 4 weeks so we’ll see hopefully I”m healed. I would recommend him for any foot injuries and questions.

Dr. Bowen gave me clear instructions on what I need to do to make sure my fracture heals. He was personable, professional and informative. Once this fracture heals, I hope I will not have further need of a doctor, but ifI do, Dr. Bowen will be the one that I go to. Highest recommendation for this doc.

I drive quite a ways for care by this wonderful MD & his Great Assistant. As a retired RN, BSN (OHSU '87), former LVN & CDA (1960-80s) in multiple specialties, including OR & Trauma - I have a bit of insightre: high professional standards. His team is Extraordinary! Fast, efficient, responsive, empathetic, careful, concerned & a blast-to-chew-words-with. Wish we had them down Tualatin way. In the meantime, I'll keep lobbying, but alas, I'm only one, so wanted to get the word out his way!

Dr. Bowen, is warm, personable, and was excellent with my rambunctious 6 year old son. He clearly explained the recommended procedure and gave us a print out of what to expect for our next visit, and his staff was really lovelyand efficient. The building has patient parking, which is nice when you're in the NE. Absolutely top notch.
