all my visits were ok not excellent, the bad thing about it was she seems to be in a rush all the time. when i was pregnant they made me go through a test twice because the girls there sent me somewhere they thought my insurance was accepted only to find out it wasnt after the test had been done, i came out of there with my arms all bruised because of the many blood draws they performed. after i delivered my baby she had to stitch me up i kept telling her it really hurt if she could atleast numb the area and she just kept getting mad and had an attitude when i would move scoffing off every once in a while. she should be more attentive and courtious or just leave her practice and retire.
I am shocked to discover this doctor so dismissive, condescending and rude with her patients (her sources of income). I thought it was just with us nurses. I am an OB nurse and this doctor is an affiliate at the medical center I work at. She always appears to have a chip on her shoulder, probably stemming from a pseudo-superiority complex (masked insecurity). The nurses find her attitude puzzling and humorous, but itâs very disappointing to know she treats her patients this way. Please do everyone a favor and leave the profession that is obviously making you very unhappy.
She being the only OB in my network I am going to have to switch to a male doctor. Dr. Bowens is the worse doctor I have ever had. She is rude and doesn't ask if you have any questions or concerns about your pregnancy. She has a very bad attitude if you ask her a question. She needs to get her licensed suspended until she knows how to treat people with respect!
