Dr. Bauwens is an excellent surgeon. He repaired my severely damaged right shoulder so well that I returned to work in the construction industry in less than four months. Now it is a year and two months later and I am back to almost normal activity. I would recommend him to any person in need of orthopedic surgery. Overall, I give Dr. Dale Bauwens a five star rating! I just had surgery by him on my left shoulder 5 days ago and am doing great!
