National Jewish Health Patient– April, 2020 I consider National Jewish to provide the best care and medical professionals available anywhere. National Jewish Health Patient– April, 2020 top notch care National Jewish Health Patient– March, 2020 Dr. was not very forthcoming. Answered all questions but no explanation that might broaden my understanding. National Jewish Health Patient– March, 2019 Very proficient. National Jewish Health Patient– November, 2018 This is difficult to answer as it was the first time having Dr. Bowles. I felt he was qualified but lacking in interest. I'm sure he was trained, knowledgeable but didn't seem to show much enthusiasm in his approach. It was late in the day and this may have contributed to his lack of interest.
