Dr. Bowton is extremely professional and obviously experienced and knowledgeable. I interviewed several doctors before choosing him to perform a hip replacement and am glad that I was so discriminating in my choice. Dr. Bowton is surrounded by a kind and extremely professional staff.

We've been tracking my bad knee and the need for replacement surgery. I was able to get an appointment right away. Dr. Bowton explained clearly and concisely what was wrong with my knee and what replacement surgery would do. I've been dreading having surgery, but am now confident that this is what I need to do.

My personal care provider is rarely available anymore, however I was seen by one of the other drs. I can tell you it very frustrating to have to retell my health history that I have had in the last 1 1/2 years. [...] "My records" has been extremely in my continuing health care. "My records" has been extremely helpful in keeping in touch. [...]

I had a fall that injured my shoulder and had seen Dr. Bowton two years ago regarding ruptured bicep tendon on the same arm as my shoulder injury. I felt Dr. Bowton would be the logical dr. to contact.

Dr Bowton operated on my (L) shoulder January, 2008, for which I was very pleased with the result. For this visit it was to look at the same shoulder as it has been bothering me, due Iam sure, to me doing too much. He has the same caring attitude that he had before. Very respectful, very polite, kind, and he really listens to what I had to say and is totally professional. I had an X-Ray in the office, and am going for an Ultra Sound next week [...] and then I see him again on [...]. I would also like to say that his nurse was extremley nice and also very professional.
