Michael Bower, MD, emphasizes prevention in his approach to medical care. He also takes a holistic approach in his practice. "As a primary caregiver, I believe in treating the whole person," says Dr. Bower. "Medical conditions aren't always isolated problems. They may be the result of several factors in a person's life, and all of these factors may need to be addressed to restore health."
Dr. Bower earned his medical degree in 1973, graduating from St. Louis University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri. He completed his residency in internal medicine at Providence Portland Medical Center.
In his free time, Dr. Bower enjoys spending time outdoors with his family, skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer.
