Excellent care and concern regarding previous surgery and also potential need of opposite ear and mouth.

January 22, 2017

Your team was awesome

December 22, 2016

Dr Bowen is an amazing individual and a true gift to the patients he serves. He has a way of making the most serious of issues understandable in a way that is easy to understand.

December 21, 2016

great care, everything was explained in detail by the doctor and Andy.

December 06, 2016

The Doctor was great as well! Able to joke a bit which put me at ease and made sure I understood what he was explaining. Made you feel like he was someone you could be friends with. Showed interest in me as an individual by asking conversational questions...made me feel like more than just another patient.

December 05, 2016

Dr. Bowen was thorough with assessment and in explaining medications and diagnoses. We appreciate him.

Dr. Bowen is super good. His work was excellent as was his concern for my level of pain.

October 25, 2016


October 21, 2016

Dr. Bowen is a breath of fresh air. He immediately put me at ease and used humor to diffuse my anxiety. he welcomed my husband into the treatment room which I greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend him.

October 17, 2016

Often recommended Huntsman to people whom I've met that had need of cancer care.

October 14, 2016

The pain medication did not do ANYTHING for the amount i experienced the first 3 days. I also had spoke to the individual booking my appointment and asked him about recovery time or anything I would need to know about the appointment and he told me everything would be explained at the time of the appointment. To find out during the actual procedure that I would have to skip work that weekend but I could return the following Monday. I couldn't walk normally for 3 weeks and certainly could not work my manual labor job for 3 weeks- leaving me in a financial hardship!

October 12, 2016

very nice

October 10, 2016

Excellent care.

October 02, 2016

Again, my visits to Huntsman are almost fun!

September 30, 2016

Dr. Bowen is clear, clever and pleasant with his explanations of conditions, possible treatment and so on. Obviously outstanding in his field while showing compassion. He listens!

August 29, 2016

The care provider is so busy it is unlikely a new patient could get an appointment!

August 20, 2016

Very friendly and professional staff.

March 22, 2016

Excellent experience

March 21, 2016

Best information was given in an email with a video to watch starring the doctor since I'd never met him. He drew the same diagram on the white board as the video but it gave me a sense of familiarity with him. If I had not had that introduction I would have thought his interaction was short, but I felt comfortable asking if I could die of old age before this type of skin cancer would kill me.

March 01, 2016

I was blown away by Dr. Bowen. I've never encountered a doctor like him. I felt safe and comfortable. His bedside manner is unprecedented. I knew I was was in great hands. He made an experience that I had been DREADING nearly pleasant. I'd recommend him to my closest loved ones.

February 08, 2016

OUTSTANDING. Excellent professional services from top to bottom. Extremely satisfied with the services and the final results.

February 06, 2016

Without question, Dr. Bowen is the finest doctor I have had treat me. He was very thorough in his explanation of the procedure and what to expect. He provided exceptional explanations in language we could understand and in the explanation of the medications to take following the surgery. I wish more doctors were like him.

February 05, 2016

Used the whiteboard effectively for new terminology.

February 04, 2016

Our visit was to be with Mark Hyde, but due to the cancellation issue, he was not able to see us. Dr. Bowen was available and he very graciously was able to examine my husband. This was a late appointment and he could have very easily had us reschedule, but didn't. Thank you

January 25, 2016

There is no one better than Dr Bowen.

January 19, 2016

It would have been nice to have some wound care instructions written down, since they were different than what was shown in the video.

January 11, 2016

Excellent! Dr. Bowen, Ryan and Stephaine, were great! Didn't talk about meds, because I went right over to plastic surgeon who prescribed.

The video sent to me via email was excellent in helping me understand my diagnosis and surgery.

great surgeon. I didn't receive any follow up instructions about pain medication and treatment

July 31, 2015

Dr. Bowen's 2 videos that I received before my procedure were very beneficial - and very well done. The demonstration and graphics that described the surgery and the care after allayed alot of my anxiety. It was also helpful to see him and get a sense of who he was from the video before I met him.

July 26, 2015

dr Bowen is great, very knowledgeable, caring, great sense of humor. Neat guy!!

July 20, 2015

March 22, 2015

I was not worried about the positive outcome of the procedure, because I knew I was in the best hands.

March 21, 2015

We always tell everyone the Huntsman is the place to go

March 16, 2015

I had been through the procedure before (with a different doctor) and was very apprehensive this time. To say Dr. Bowen did a fantastic job is an understatement. I have absolute confidence in him, and would recommend him in a heartbeat.

March 16, 2015

With concern about a spot of cancer on my nose, Dr. Bowen put me at ease immediately, the medicine I had used had worked. Dr. Bowen is wonderful easy, friendly, explained everything I needed to know. I have found all the Doctors at the Huntsman Clinic are just great.

February 03, 2015

December 19, 2014

I wouldn't hesitate for a second to refer my family and friends to Dr. Bowen!

December 18, 2014

December 07, 2014

I definately will recommend HCH to anyone who needs cancer treatment.

December 05, 2014

Our experiences in Utah with hospitals and cancer centers has been of the highest example of health care we could expect. I wish our health care was as good here, it's getting better but has a long why to go. That's why we have made the decision to travel to SLC area for any type of major health care requirements. This is the first experience we've had with the Huntsman Center and it's been great.

December 01, 2014

My experience with Dr. Bowen was the best experience with a doctor I have ever had. He was amazing and explained the situation very well, he took the time to educate me about my problem, and answered all of my questions completely and with knowledge. I loved him and would recommend anyone to him.

Excellent care!

November 08, 2014

My experience was positive in every way except for the length of time required to get an appointment - you have nothing on the alleged wait times in other countries!!!

November 06, 2014

i enjoyed Dr. Bowen's whiteboard illustrations.

October 28, 2014

The time Dr. Bowen used to draw the type of cancer on my face was informative and removed some stress I had been feeling. After the procedure, he explained there would be options on how to close the wound to determine the remaining scar and made me a part of the decision process. I appreciated the support for my decision and am satisfied it was the best choice.

October 24, 2014

Everyone and everything I experienced was first-rate, top-notch. I feel extremely lucky to have this level of care available to me.

October 20, 2014

loved the video explaining things.

October 09, 2014

drawings on the board always help

September 24, 2014

Dr. Bowen and his team were excellent - explaining things in 'layman's terms, and keeping me distracted in a friendly way to ease nervousness during the procedure.

I knew upon leaving that I could call if problems arouse. Excellent experience.

August 21, 2014

Dr. Bowen kept me well informed during my procedure and explained my options for repairs. I was very confident in his skills and knowledge.

August 21, 2014

Dr. Bowen used analogies which was a exellent tool for the lay person ,however ,I was better with medical terms since my family growing up were physicians and my husband now too. it was useful but I understood most medical terms better. he is wonderful using humor ,compassion and all his knowledge.

August 01, 2014

Again, I was very happy with the whole procedure given the time it all took. neither the doctor or myself knew just how long this was going to take due to the severity of the procedure.

July 19, 2014

Love Dr. Bowen and Hyde

July 05, 2014

Dr. Bowen is terrific. I am extremely pleased with the care he is providing and highly recommend him to others.

June 10, 2014

The doctor is an excellent doctor.

June 09, 2014

Dr. Bowen was very professional and did a great job explaining the diagnosis. He worked well with the team and included me as well so I was aware of everything going on. This was one of the best experiences I ever had at any Dr's office! Glad I decided to get the procedure done! Thank you!

May 12, 2014

Excellent experience. Efficient visit, all questions answered, friendly staff. Barely any wait.

April 14, 2014

I was very happy with Dr. Bowen. He took the time needed before he perfomed the surgery I had to talk with me about any concerns that I had. He also explained what would have happened to the melanoma if it was left to continue. I appreciated his down to earth explanaition of it.

April 05, 2014


March 27, 2014

Dr.Bowen came highly recommended. That put me at ease and was reassuring. He was kind and seemed meticulous.

March 25, 2014

Can't think of a thing for improvement.

March 24, 2014

Dr. Bowen and his assistants were extremely kind, attentive and explained the procedure carefully.

March 22, 2014

March 15, 2014

I had told them I was nervous and they gave me a Valium which helped a great deal. DR. Bowen was wonderful he explained everything. He and his nurse took excellent care of me, they made sure my head was numb and that I was comfortable during the entire procedure. Thank you so much!

March 10, 2014

Dr Bowen was great, skill in doing the procedure as well as being fun to work with. I have already recommended him to those who asked what happened to me.

March 06, 2014

Very good and reassuring experience considering the initial worry of cancer treatment.

March 01, 2014

I am glad I had specific and written instructions told to me. When my stitches were taken out, the operative site looked very good, according to Dr. Bowen. Thank you for letting me come up and see the RN in your office last Friday, a day after the surgery. I was concerned about some things, and she assured me that everything looked fine.

February 24, 2014

Dr Bowen was very friendly, communicative and competent. Nurse assistant likewise. Great bedside manners!

February 24, 2014

I have already told several others about my experience, and the confidence I have in Dr. Bowen and those who are at the Huntsman Center.

February 20, 2014

His Video explaining the options was excellent - I appreciate his time to prepare it. He still went over what I needed to know in person, neither talking over my head nor condescending. He was not hurried or impatient.

February 09, 2014

Excellent in every way

January 25, 2014

Everything was outstanding and very professional.

January 24, 2014

Dr. Glen Bowen is absolutely the best. He is always professional, knowledgeable, caring and takes whatever time is needed in explaining any questions I have in a very clear manner.

January 19, 2014

Dr Bowen put me a ease immediately and kept me informed of what he was doing all through the procedure. I felt I was in excellent care at all times!

January 13, 2014

My care providers were a real Class Act. If I hear anyone needing the treatment I received, they will be giving you a call.

January 11, 2014

Dr. Bowen and staff are a class act. They invited my wife in with me to observe my surgery. She is telling everyone what happened and is extremely happy that she was able to be there. From my favorite music to the Outstanding safe feeling I had throughout the procedure, I want to say "Thank You."

January 06, 2014

Could have used a written form for the various skin conditions that were not of concern. Something that would maybe show a photo of a typical condition with the name and a brief explanation.

January 03, 2014

Dr. Bowman and his PA were outstanding. I was very impressed with both of them and am very pleased I chose to come to the Huntsman Center rather than having the procedure done with my local Dermatologist.

December 29, 2013

Thanks to Dr. Bowen, Amberlee, and Mark.

December 19, 2013

Doctor spoke to both me and my husband when explaining the procedure and what to expect. By including my husband in the conversation it made the process easier to understand and made him more confident in the doctors ability.

December 19, 2013

dr Bowen is an excellent doctor & very thorough with his patients care

December 15, 2013

I have been going to Dr. Glen Bowen for many years. He is always so professional, friendly and knows his business. His explanations are crystal clear.

December 14, 2013


December 13, 2013

I really like Dr. Bowen. He is personable, caring, obviously well trained, and I TRUST him.

December 11, 2013

Very quick appointment. Appreciate the lack of wait time, but spent longer getting dressed and undressed than I did with the physician. He seems to be thorough however.

December 07, 2013

the best clinic experience I've ever had. from the time I arrived to the time I left I felt very cared for. Everyone communicated with me right down to the last detail. exceptional experience.

December 06, 2013

Dr. Bowen is particularly good at explaining things using metaphors that are easy to remember ("it's a like a fried egg"). Going back to my initial visit, it was also very helpful to have a video that explained what I have that I could watch and then rewatch later online, and that my wife even watched. I'm sure it saves him and his nurse a lot of time having to explain the same thing to dozens of patients, but in addition I think it's actually a better way to do.

November 25, 2013

Dr. Bowen is the best truely cares for his patients and their well being... Sincerely Thank You Dr. Bowen Bill and Catherine

November 25, 2013

I would say I was in the best care. Dr. Glen Bowen I would recomened to anyone. He is the best! I feel blessed to have had my nurse and Doctor.

November 25, 2013

The doctor was a bit brusque with his delivery and the amount of time spent with me. But actually I expect that he had other people to deal with and other things to do and just wanted to get back to working on other matters - the nurse, assistant was excellent and covered everything, so he was really just repeating what she had said. Sometimes it is just nice to hear everything from the doctor. But over all the care, the treatment, the concern - just everything - was excellent. Some of the best health care

November 20, 2013

October 14, 2013

I really like Dr Bowman.I was a little disappointedbecause he told me I would go to a plastic surgeon right after my surgery with him. I was later told this was not always the caseand I was disappointed since I had been planning on that happening. In the end it all worked out just fine

October 07, 2013

Dr. Bowen performed a shave biopsy. He injects the numbing medication very slowly which minimizes the sting. I thought he was still injecting and it turned out the tissue for the biopsy had already been taken. Very slick.

November 13, 2012

All good

April 27, 2012

Exceptional care given to myself and my spouse in every aspect of my surgery. Detailed explanation of surgical procedure given, demeanor of Dr. Bowen was friendly, reassuring, caring and competent. Took plenty of time answering each and every question in a detailed way. I am thankful for his expertise and care.

April 10, 2012

Dr Bowen is great. He listens and responds to anything I ask or share.

March 21, 2012

The doctor is very caring and answered every question that I had, (and I had 8 or 10 of them all written down). He discussed my treatment in detail to me. He also is more than willing to work with me in scheduling my appoinments since I live 250 miles away out of state.

March 21, 2012

The care provider was extremely friendly and efficient. I really felt that she cared about my comfort and peace of mind.

March 20, 2012

There were alot of words that I didn't understand but guessed what they meant because my condition has been on going for a long time and I know most of the treatments.

March 01, 2012

There was no cancer found in the first Mohs sample, so it leaves me wondering if I really needed this procedure at all!! I understand that it's better to be safe than sorry, but it's frustrating to now carry a scar, wondering if I really needed it. I felt like there was not a good discussion of the alternative of not receiving any treatment at this time. Everything seem strongly pushed towards having this procedure no matter what.

February 29, 2012

Didn't have the need for a care giver

February 28, 2012

Everything was explained in language I could understand and any questions were immediately answered

February 07, 2012

No medications, no follow-up

February 07, 2012
