Dr Bowden is easy to talk to and explains things without trying to go over my head, which would be easy to do. And he had obviously reviewed my history prior to seeing me. The Nurse who checked me in is also very good, she puts me at ease which is very nice in a medical setting.

Dr. Bowden was very friendly. Listen to me I felt like he was very understanding and spent time with me and I didn't feel rushed. Great bedside manner and sent in a prescription for me when I wasn't feeling well to get me back on the path to return to work. Grateful Thank you!!!

Dr. Bowden does a fabulous job of explaining why he is recommending whatever it is he is recommending. In this visit he couldn't solve for my issue- but instead will need to refer me to a specialist, but he did a great job of explaining why and what I can try in the meantime while I'm waiting to see that doctor.

My PCP is fine for an annual physical. But I would not recommend LMG to a friend or family member due to the fact that physicians are restricted to FDA approved formulary for Covid-19 treatment.

Dr Bowden and his MA responded almost immediately when I used MyChart accompanied by a photo. They made an appointment that very afternoon. I was so grateful as the original medication was not working. I was flying to [location removed] and it was a relief to know I wouldn't have to deal with this there! Caring, compassionate medical care providers!

My only negative was I was sent to the first floor for bloodwork and was there waiting over 1hr 1/2 then get in and the lab tech told me I should have been sent to the second floor to get my labs done would have been faster

This was a first visit I had because my Dr was retiring. We had a very good first visit which was basically a get to know each other and to go over my history since I'm a new patient. Dr. Bowden is very easy to talk to which is an important to me to have in a PCP. I feel confident in the care I will receive from him and his staff moving foward.

I think providers are somewhat experiencing an overwhelming work load - one that isn't healthy for them! Additionally, it is close to impossible to get a response via the online email system and the same is true for phone calls.

I felt disrespected as I had to wait 45 minutes for my 9:30am appointment and no one in the office acknowledged or apologized for the inconvenience that this caused me. I do not know why the physician could be 45 minutes late while his office had only been open for 1.5 hours by that point in the day.
