Ratings for Dr. Mary I. Bowers
Dr. Bowers is amazing. She listens. She cares. She treats patients and parents with respect. She is incredibly knowledgable but also knows when she needs to seek further info for a complete diagnosis. One thing I will never forget is during one of our first appointments she told us point blank that if she ever stops listening that we should find a different doctor. She has never stopped listening and because of that our little guy is so much healthier than he would otherwise be.
She was good at first, but I always felt rushed and that she didn't really care for my son. We were always in and out of there and she would just look at him for a few minutes without actually examining him. The and one time she prescribed him something she never called it it in her receptionist hung up on me twice. My son is no longer seeing her as he was rude to my boyfriend as well.
Dr. Bowers is always upbeat, on time, and extremely knowledgeable. Unlike other doctors I have gone to, she takes a lot of individual time to really get to know her patients and their parents, and every new baby is like one of her own grandkids to her. She is the pediatrician of choice for my own kids, and for every child in my extended family. In addition, I have been very impressed with her PA and nurses, who all seem to really enjoy their job and always have time to listen and give advice.
Dr. Bowers is an excellent physician. She is caring and knowledgable about a variety of issues concerning babies. She is well versed on pediatric issues and it is clear that educates herself (not relying on pharmaceutical company info as her source of information). This is important to me as a parent.
Dr. Bowers has been my pediatrician of choice since my children were born (12 & 14 yrs). My favorite quality of hers is her willingness to listen to and trust me as a parent. She dedicates a great deal of time at appointments; whether this is how she chooses to schedule them, I am not sure, but I find that I notice this nearly every visit and yet don't find us waiting an unreasonable amount of time to be seen.
Dr. Bowers is practical and knowledgeable. She is very supportive of breastfeeding. Both of our children have food allergies and she identified this early on and helped us address that. We feel very comfortable with her approach! She really listens to us during appointments, our children really like her (and her staff), and while she obviously knows what she's doing, she listens to parental input as well.
This Doctor is outstanding in her field. She listens to your conserns and explains things in detail. Her diagnosis's are mostly right on target. She is compasionate with stressed mothers who are the main care givers and works well with her staff. She follows up with a phone call. She is great.
