Biography

Amber Bowell believes her most important role as a physician assistant is to be a great listener, advocate and educator to all her patients. "I enjoy the interaction with people and treasure the relationships that are formed," she says. "I find joy in helping my patients achieve their health goals."

After earning her Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree in foreign language and literature-Spanish from Colorado State University, she went on to receive her Master of Science Physician Assistant degree from Quinnipiac University in Connecticut. She is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants. During rotations at Quinnipiac, she had a special emphasis in dermatology and infectious disease.

Amber joins Providence from Middlesex Hospital in Durham, Conn., where she worked in primary care for several years and volunteered providing medical care to migrant farm workers.

Amber was born in Nebraska and was raised on a farm until her family moved to Colorado when she was a teenager.

My last visit on [...] was due to mild abdomen pain on right side. I was able to get a same day appointment and treatment or advice received was immediately helpful with pain subsiding within a day or two. My experience at Providence Bridgeport has always been good; whether seeing Amber, have blood work done, urgent care visit, etc., etc. By far, this is the best medical option I've ever had and I would recommend the Bridgeport facility to anyone.

The only complaint I have is regarding the test results. They were provided to me via mychart and I still don't understand them. [...] I had asked Amber if I could get my blood drawn in a few months rather than this month or next as she had wanted and I never received a reply via my chart. I just wish the communication were better and more open AFTER leaving the doctors office. I am going to have to call in sometime to make sure I can still get my labs done in a few months..

I am new to the Providence team [...]. I was surprised at the time and attention that my new provider gave me for my overall annual check up. It has been many years since I have had a PCP and been within a somewhat enclosed network where all my information is shared with my various providers - I love it! The follow up after my appointment was thorough and timely.

needed an ultrasound and Amber got me one the same day, even though I had to come back for it, it was great to be able to get it done the same day, and as soon as I got home from it I got a phone call with the results which was fantastic!

The entire experience from the moment I entered the practice was exceptional. I was greeted warmly, yet very professional and felt that my concerns were addressed. Amber goes above and beyond in making sure necessary labs, annual exams etc. are complete and the patient has reviewed the results.

I came in looking for a general health checkup and a prescription renewal and got exactly what I needed. My doctor took all the time we needed without wasting any either.
