I’ve been with Dr. Bauwens for about 35 years. I had two back surgeries that were failures. Then I met with Dr. Bauwens and he did my 3rd. back surgery. I consider him as my angel because he saved my life. He is a wonderful surgeon and human being. Very kind and understanding gentle man. There is no one that is more qualified and caring then he is. Thank you, Thomas J. Ladik I give him a rating of 10 stars.
