She thoroughly reviewed Ryan's case and presented his complicated case to other urologists. We hope we found our forever urologist. It is amazing how many are not as competent or thorough, but she really was wonderful and personable. It was a pleasure to meet her and hope we can keep Ryan healthy

Dr Bowen is extremely competent and talented in her field, but I wish I had gotten more information about what my surgery would entail (an info-sheet, or even just the name of the surgery itself and all the potential changes/techniques) so I could have done my own reading and stuff about it. I wish I had known what my surgery was called, at least so I could be mentally prepared for the pain.
