Dr. Bowen was excellent. He spent close to an hour evaluating and explaining my condition and his diagnosis. Very thoughtful and thorough. Additionally, when he realized that the prescription for meds did not go through during the day, he contacting me later that night to verify information and then resubmitted the prescription so I would be able to begin with the medicine ASAP. Additionally, and equally as important, Dr. Bowen's professional staff was excellent....effective and efficient.

Dr Bowen is great. Really takes the time to explain the what why how and when. However, his explanations may be the reason why patients have felt that he is very behind schedule. Maybe today was an off day but prior to coming in, a review mentioned this and it held up to be true. I waited an hour to see him and the same for the patient before me. Otherwise, he is excellent and the staff if courtesy, professional and friendly.

I setup a meeting via ZocDoc that was confirmed and when I went into the office, they had no record of my appointment so I had to wait about 2 hours to finally see Dr. Bowen (in fairness, this was partially my fault because I wasn't aware that you had to also call the odfice to confirm the appointment). After meeting Dr. Bowen, he seemed nice and tried to diagnose my problem. However, the problems start after your initial meeting with him. I will echo others who have said that Dr. Bowen's follow-up with patients is simply atrocious. Trying to get in contact with him is almost impossible. After taking the 2 tests with his staff, he never contacted me with the results. I called his office MANY times and was never able to reach him. Finally, one of his assistants told me that I need to go into the office to see him to get the results. It wasn't until he was relocating offices that he finally emailed me my results. Go to another doctor if you care about follow-up.

When I went to Dr. Bowen initially, he was very informative and helpful and was able to diagnose me very quickly. However, I had a bad reaction to some medication that he prescribed. When I went back the following day, I felt as if he didn't believe that the bad reaction had been caused by the medication-- even though the symptoms that I felt were listed as possible side effects of the medication. So I was turned off a little from that. However, he was very conscious of insurance costs, so that was a positive!

highly recommend this doctor. It was a bit of a wait to see him, but it was definitely worth it. he took the time to ask me questions and get an overall picture of what was causing my issues and what I can do on my end to minimize allergens in my home. I feel like I saw an allergist and a pulmonologist in the same appointment. Very productive appointment for me.

He was so thorough in explaining everything about the tests I was going to take, the results of them, the problem and the treatment plan. He took time to ask a lot of questions and explained verbally and visually what was happening in the body. He also modeled exactly the correct ways of using inhalers and gave suggestions for improving technique. He is clearly very detail oriented and doesn't mind taking the time to explain things in detail.

Dr. Bowen is pleasant enough during the consultation but when it comes to providing follow up reports, feedback on test results etc it is non existent, bordering on negligent. There are plenty of Pulmonologists in this town so don't waste your time or money seeing this one.

Marc Bowen is negligent and doesn't care about you. I won't see him again. I went there 3 weeks ago to due to difficulty breathing. The first impression was good. Not much wait, and I filed the forms on a machine rather than piece of papers with redundant information. He diagnosed me, and gave me treatment. Some of the medicine he prescribed had a quick positive impact on my well-being. But it stopped there. He sent the prescriptions to my pharmacy for all the medicine, except for a nasal spray, which he sent to this other phone pharmacy he has some deal with. It became a huge headache for me to get that spray. The deal pharmacy only called me at the end of the second day and it would take 3 more days to deliver the medicine (I needed right away). The price was high. I decided to go with the generic and a physical pharmacy instead, so I went on to request Marc's office to send the prescription to my pharmacy. Marc and his office were completely unresponsive. I called and they wouldn't pick up. I left many voicemails and messages on his online system. No return calls or messages whatsoever. When I was finally able to reach them, they sent the prescription for the brand medicine, not the generic I requested. I'd try to explain that I needed the generic, and they were dismissive. It took me several attempts to get it fixed. They'd say that they had already sent the prescription. I would go to the pharmacy and it was the brand one! I wasted a couple of hours with all of this, and spent many days without the medicine I needed. After two weeks I went, in person, to Marc's office. Only then I was able to get the prescription corrected. It took 2 weeks and a visit in person to get a simple prescription! I went to the office that day to do a pulmonary test. I was supposed to not take any of the medicines I was taking on the day of the test, but no one ever told me that! Marc didn't tell me. The checkout person didn't tell me. The reminder didn't tell me. So I couldn't do the test. I wasted even more of my time because of Marc's carelessness. Tired of the terrible service from his office, I decided to not re-schedule the test and cancel my follow-up. I requested my Medical Record so I could take it to another doctor. They opened the folder and it was pretty much empty! It only had the result of some preliminary and unimportant test. No doctor notes and no results of the inflammation test I did. This was 2 weeks after my first visit, and Marc had not written a single note on my file. What doctor takes two weeks to enter visit notes? I then requested the office to send me my records as soon as possible in order to not delay my treatment further. A week and a half has now passed, and I haven't seen any sign of my records. Once again, they showed how they don't care about me. So, in short, Marc Bowen and staff hurt me in the following ways: 1) Hurt my treatment, by preventing me from getting the medicine for two weeks 2) Wasted hours of my time because due to the negligence and incompetence of his office to provide me a prescription. If he put the client interest first, he wouldn't make me go through the "deal" pharmacy that takes days and wouldn't push for the brand medicine. 3) Wasted more of my time by not informing me how to prepare for the breath test. 4) Hurt my treatment, by delaying the release of my medical record. 5) Monetary damage, by having to pay a new doctor, and new tests in case he doesn't release them soon. 6) And finally, he depleted my patience. A doctor is supposed to do harm. So, please, do yourself a favor, and go see another doctor instead.

I feel confident that he'll find a solution to my condition/s. The medical assistant that worked with him to perform my test was pleasant. The ladies at the front desk seem pleasant but not to vibrant, I guess they could've been tired it was in the middle of the afternoon. I'll judge again my next appt.
