she could do better!

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.

Nusre Agrees with preceeding bad reviews

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 it’s 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.

Worse OB EVER!

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!

OMG really!!

All I have to say is if you plan to have her as an OB make sure your deliverying in the morning. Nurses mentioned she rarely does deliveries in nights especially weekends. Really upsetting the worst part she didn't even put the order for my epidural.
