Worst Surgeon

This man operated on my foot when I was 16 years old. He convinced my dad (who is a physician) and me that I needed an extra UNNECESSARY step in my surgery. He botched the surgery, ended up drilling a screw into the tendon that controls my big toe. He ordered no X-RAYS after the surgery. I couldn’t bend my big toe at PT and when I went to go back and see Dr. Bowman and tell him about not being able to move my toe, he said it was probably a pinched nerve but it DIDNT MATTER BECAUSE I WAS NOT AN OLYMPIC GYMNAST OR DIVER. My dad then ordered an MRI to show Dr. Bowman drove a screw into my FHL tendon and it was tearing it. Dr. Bowman had to repair the tendon he destroyed and take the screw out. A few months later I still had excruciating heel pain. Again he ordered no X-rays to show he removed the screw. After being on crutches most of my high school career because of this man, my knees and back were all screwed up. My chiropractor ordered an X-ray on my foot because he thought I may have a stress fracture in my heel. Turns out Dr. Bowman actually left the washer in my heel and it was upright and sticking into my heel. He purposefully left the washer in there. When my father called him to confront him Dr. Bowman said he leaves the washers in all his patients feet because a bone is supposed to grow over the washer and it’s suposoed to lay horizontally against the heel bone. Well that didn’t happen in my case and it rotated vertically and it was like I was stepping on a quarter in the vertical position each time I put my right foot down. He was just lazy and instead of removing a piece of hardware that is not supposed to be in a patient’s foot, he just leaves it in there. He was condescending, rude, and he had one of his assistants send me a fake apology because he knew we could’ve sued him. Don’t go to this man. He also misdiagnosed my neighbors ankle and tried to perform an unnecessary surgery on him. Go to someone else. This man’s arrogant and thinks he’s God. He sees his patients as money signs. Not as human beings. I didn’t let him touch me again after the second surgery and had someone else remove the washer in my heel.

Bone Spur Removal and Achilles Repair

I am a nurse and was referred to Dr. Bowman by my neurosurgeon who is absolutely wonderful. My first appointment left me questioning whether I would return or not despite Dr. Bowman's reputation. I had a long wait (about 30-45min) in the exam room and once he came in he was quite abrupt and somewhat rude. He must have been having a really bad day...not what I expected. I was given a cortisone injection and he ordered 4 weeks of PT prior to a return visit. That being said...I decided to return and I am very happy that I did. He is an excellent surgeon and was absolutely wonderful after that appointment and at all of my follow-up appointments for the next 4 months. He was very personable, attentive & explained what to expect before and after my surgery and during my long recovery period. His office staff was wonderful and I never had a long wait in the waiting room or exam room (maybe 5-10 min each time.) I can't say enough about his nurse Kathy who was absolutely wonderful and so helpful as well. She is a wonderful asset to his practice. I would definitely recommend Dr. Bowman!

Dr. Michael Bowman is an excellent surgeon!!

I have been a patient of Michael Bowman, since 2006. I received poor care in my hometown of Wheeling, WV. A neighbor of mine suggested Dr. Bowman. He immediately performed surgery on me to correct my problems. I'm just sorry that didn't know about before I was treated. I have received excellent care from him for my ongoing condition. His staff is wonderful. The entire office has gone above & beyond for me. I would highly recommend Dr. Bowman to all who need a Hand or Foot Surgeon.

Dr. Bowman diagnosed my problem and performed surgery on my foot. Three therapists remarked that he did an excellent job with the incision. He and his office staff were both pleasant and professional. I could not have had a better experience!
