Clinical excellence isn’t Dr. Bowling’s only strength.

Then the care team and I provide additional information about the type of cancer she has and the best treatments, taking into consideration her wishes. It’s the same thing we would do if caring for a member of our family.”

Dr. Bowling saved my mom's life more than 30 years ago and continues to affirm my cancer-free life, navigating me through decisions regarding my BRCA cancer gene. She is caring, trustworthy, and helpful. If you have a history of cancer in your family, seek out Marcia Bowling so you can be a previvor, not just a survivor. Prevent it before it happens. Or, if you’re already diagnosed with cancer, you may absolutely rely on everything she says. Cincinnati is very lucky to have an expert of her caliber. – A.K., May 2022
Dr. Bowling is very thorough and informative. She also shows interest in all other areas of my care to ensure I am getting the healthcare that I need. – K., May 2022
I cannot speak highly enough about Dr. Bowling and her staff. They have been professional, extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and very accommodating with PTSD symptoms I have. Dr. Bowling is someone that puts you at ease with her knowledge and professionalism. I have never felt so comfortable in a doctor's office as I do with her. – Anonymous, May 2022
Dr. Bowling performed surgery on me. In the operating room, I felt I was with friends. I know it was a planned effort to make me feel comfortable. I feel the same way going to the office. But more that, I know if I have any issues, Dr. Bowling will find them and take care of them. That is comforting. – D.H., May 2022
