Dr Bowden is the best. His staff is just as awesome. They never make us feel, "old".

I truly appreciate the speedy lab results and MyChart follow up by the clinic staff and Dr. Bowden. This is especially noteworthy given the current staffing resource challenges.

Dr. Bowden provided excellent, insightful, well-rounded wisdom on every question I brought to my annual physical. He is also an exceptionally good listener. He is by far the best doctor I have had. Thanks Dr. Bowden for being such a great health partner!!

  Apr 3, 2023
The nurse administered a tetanus vaccination to me & when she pushed the vaccine into my arm there was a lot of air injected. I didn't appreciate this & I would have asked her to remove the excess air and I would have asked why the air way there in the first place. I did not see the syringe before she gave me the injection! I heard the air being injected!! Now I wonder if I received a correct DOSE!

  Feb 14, 2023
It is unacceptable that this office does not have a blood pressure cuff that fits me - It's irresponsible. It's insulting. The MA's do not introduce themselves. That's not professional. When reviewing medications and allergies a written should be provided to PT. Verbally/auditory channel is not the dependable/reliable.

  Feb 13, 2023
Promptness of being seen. Receptionist, Nurse & Dr. Bowden all very professional.

  Feb 9, 2023
Dr. Bowden is an excellent primary care provider with a well rounded background and an open mind in regards to alternative medicine compliments to Western medicine. He listens to me and is very collaborative when it comes to my health care. He takes an amazing amount of time to review the chart and seems to remember everything about my health history. He's been with me through some tough times for at least 15 years. My only complaint is that maybe because he's so thorough (and it could just be me and my history), the wait at my appointments is very long.

  Feb 3, 2023
Really appreciate Dr. Jeff for his care for me. Very caring and informative.

  Feb 3, 2023

  Jan 4, 2023
Very straight shooting doctor. I like that. I'm experiencing multiple medical issues that he isn't directly treating. Dr. Bowden is my primary so he interfaces with the back surgeon, migraine doctor, and urologist.

Just referred to a doctor that was not accepting new patients. Emailed for another doctor but have not heard back yet.

  Sep 28, 2022
I've been to other providers closer to where I live or when I'm out of state, but I always end up going back to Dr. Bowden. The legacy team is phenomenal and I really feel like Dr. Bowden listens to what I have to say and cares about his patients. I appreciate how he always explains the disease process, all the options, and why he selects the treatment he does.

He is excellent

  Aug 17, 2022
It took a long time to get my first appointment, but it was worth the wait. My wife called before my appointment to arrange that I pick up my son's physical when I was there, but then I wasn't on the list of people who could access his records. That was sort of annoying. I understand HIPPA and respect that they didn't share information to someone who was not authorized, but it would have been great had they communicated that with my wife when she called and asked to have them give me the physical.

  Aug 16, 2022
Dr. Bowden is always knowledgeable and thorough and trustworthy. I would highly recommend him to others and am grateful for his services.

  Aug 16, 2022
Dr Bowden is probably the best doc i've ever had. And i'm old! He is able to figure out what i'm trying to say quickly. He makes sure he gets everything he needs out. And I'm always satisfied that he has. No small feat for someone like me. Thank you Dr Bowden!

  Aug 12, 2022

This was my first appointment with Dr Bowden, he was fantastic and we had excellent dialogue. I am so happy with Dr Jeffrey Bowden.

  Jun 30, 2022
The online functions are a great assest from booking appointment, prepay copay and ability to complete all questionnaires beforehand. I also appreciate the team treating me like a patient. I have had a few experiences at other providers before moving to [location removed] that made an appointment feel like a time slot versus an important medical visit.

  Jun 22, 2022
Dr Bowden was great.

Continue to have excellent care from Dr. Bowden and his staff
