Biography

Alex Bowman, M.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Hematology/Oncology at UT Southwestern Medical Center who specializes in the medical treatment of genitourinary cancers (prostate, bladder, kidney, and testis). Originally from Houston, he earned his medical degree at UT Southwestern before completing a residency in Internal Medicine at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.  He then worked as an Internist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center before returning to Dallas to pursue a fellowship in Hematology and Oncology, where he served as chief fellow in his final year.

His primary focus is on providing high-quality and compassionate medical care to patients with genitourinary cancers. In addition to his clinic at UT Southwestern/Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center, Dr. Bowman also serves as a consultant for benign hematology and solid tumors at William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital and Parkland Memorial Hospital.  He is also actively engaged in both clinical research and quality improvement at UT Southwestern. 

Dr. Bowman believes the key to successfully treating cancer is a comprehensive patient-centered approach to medical care that incorporates the latest scientific advances, access to cutting-edge clinical trials, and a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists and pathologists to offer patients the highest-quality care available. Equally important is understanding what each patient hopes to achieve through their treatment, and ensuring that their values and goals are respected throughout the process.

Dr. Bowman’s interested outside of medicine include travel, biking, and spending time with his wife and daughter.
