So far, I've only seen Dr. Bowden three times. On my first visit, he prescribed a worthless pain medication for me. I can't really blame him, as he was ordering the last medication that my family doctor had prescribed. He was not aware that I had told my family doctor that that particular medication was completely useless. On my second visit, we discussed the bad medication and without hesitation, he changed it to something much more effective. Also, I have had spinal injections in the past. Every time I have had them, it has been extremely painful. The doctors who had done them acted very rushed, as if they were trying to break a record for how many injections they could whip out in one day. Dr. Bowden took his time and inserted the needles very gently, and injected the medication slowly. This procedure is never pleasant, but Dr. Bowden and the assistants working with him truly cared about the patient's comfort and well being. The procedure was done on an out-patient basis at Mountain Vista Medical Center. The registered nurses, other medical professionals and the volunteers provided exceptional care. They brought me coffee just the way I like it, they offered me pillows and blankets, too, as it was a bit chilly in the room. Throughout the process, not only was Dr. Bowden present, but also at least 4 nurses and a couple of volunteers, who checked in every now and again. To sum it up, the staff of Pain Management Associates at Hedley Orthopedic Institute and the staff and volunteers at Mountain Vista Medical Center provide a level of service that is professional and caring, while at the same time making the client comfortable by making a joke or simply letting them know that they care and understand.
We had just switched from a terrible pediatrician. They assigned me to Dr. Angela Filler. I looked up her picture and info on the website and she looked nice enough. She was borderline rude, seemed like she couldn't wait to get to the next patient. Would hardly acknowledge my concerns. Will not ever be going back to her again. I was talking to two friends the next day and mentioned her name and they both said, " Oh my gosh, we hated her." She made my friend think that what she thought her son had was all in her head. Another doctor tested him and confirmed a rare neurological disease. Just do yourself a favor and avoid this doctor. I am sure there are other doctors in the same office that are great.
After being more than frustrated and having some serious female issues, I asked my family doctor to recommend a new gynecologist for me and he sent me to Dr. Messer at Oasis OBGYN. Wow, what a blessing that turned out to be! Since becoming her patient my issues have been corrected all with kindness, patience and professionalism. I highly recommend her to all females because as a woman, we know how uncomfortable these issues can be to talk about.
I recently moved to Mesa and was in need of a new gynecologist. A friend recommended Oasis to me and I had just forgotten to make the appointment. When I missed my period I figured it was time to make the call. They got me in at the last minute. Dr. Messer was great, very understanding and sympathetic. Turns out I was not pregnant but missed my period due to extreme stress (moved across the country, got into a car accident, etc…)
Finding a doctor is a scary process and finding a gynecologist, even more so. I initially went to Dr. Messer on a recommendation and I was not disappointed. At our first appointment we sat in her office and discussed any concerns and questions I had. She made me feel so at ease and the exam was quick and painless. She made me feel very comfortable.
I did not care for my last gynecologist so my insurance company sent me to Oasis OBGYN. I just went again for the second time for my yearly exam. The staff was very friendly! I am plus size girl and the nurse snuck me in a gown to fit me better and did not make a big deal of it. The exam was quick and painless and Dr. Messer was fantastic.
Dr. Messer is the best obgyn! She is personable, takes time with me and is compassionate. I had a sensitive medical issue and she was so caring and supportive. I cannot say enough about this doctor or Oasis Obgyn.
I had both my daughters with Oasis and love them! They always answer all of my questions and concerns without making me feel stupid. The front desk has also always been nice and professional with me.
Had some problems a few years ago with a cyst and they handled it very well and knew exactly what to do, ensuring my issue wasn't something major - which gave me peace of mind at that time.
I am so glad I found Oasis Obgyn! Dr. Messer is just awesome. I have been made to feel so comfortable at this office, which is often not easy to accomplish when it comes to woman’s health.
