I’d been at another clinic for 2 years where I carefully followed all protocol. Everything had gone well until Dec, 2022. At that point, that provider decided to begin making changes to my treatment which I could see were going to lead to less functioning rather than my continued good functioning. Once that became clear, I immediately began looking for another provider. I’m eternally grateful to have discovered Bellevue Pain and Wellness.
Dr Bowers is a compassionate knowledgeable provider, and a breath of fresh air in his field. He has a deep knowledge of the science of his work, dispelling some myths I’d been told by my previous provider, which had been concerning. Dr Bowers offers a load of treatments to help those of us who live w/chronic pain. I’ve now had 2 appointments w/Dr Bowers and I was truly treated as a PERSON living w/pain who has goals, aspirations, dreams and loved ones who are depending on them. I wasn’t treated as a ‘Pain Patient.’ Dr Bowers is happy to help me w/my continued goals - what a gift!
Dr Bowers is a clear direct communicator who is obviously interested in his patients’ lives. We discovered we have gardening as a common interest, and I enjoyed our discussion around that. I'm looking forward to working w/him and his team w/our plan of action for my lumbar issues/pain. I drive quite a way to his clinic, and it's 1000% worth it.
After my first visit, he walked me out to the front desk. When he saw the receptionist was on the phone and had another patient waiting, he quickly scheduled my next appointment himself and offered me a lollipop on my way out! He then thought for me to take a 2nd lollipop for my partner who I'd mentioned briefly during our appointment. When was the last time you saw a Medical Director do THIS?!! He's a very down to earth person who clearly enjoys people and WANTS to be an integral part of their good function and overall health. My first 2 appointments in his clinic have been an absolute pleasure. Thank you Dr Bowers & team!
