Good Experience when referred to Dr. Bowman
Self-verified patient of Dr. John Bowman - Posted on September 2nd, 2011
I was referred to Dr. Bowman with an undiagnosed neurological issue affecting pupil dilation in one eye. He quickly diagnosed the condition, and confirmed it with tests. He seemed very knowledgeable and like he knew exactly what to look for after other doctors seemed unsure. He does have a 'matter of fact' dry sense of humor that my husband appreciated more than I did, but once you know it and are familiar with it it adds to his charm.
