Care Philosophy:

“My goal is to provide each and every patient with exceptional neurological care through a thoughtful and conservative approach, and by always exploring non-surgical options first. If surgery is required, I will use the most minimally invasive solutions for even the most complex disorders to ensure a timely recovery with lasting relief.”

- Charles R. Bowie, M.D

What Dr. Fautheree's Patients Say:

“Dr. Fautheree is the best spine doctor. He did my spine surgery and my neck surgery and I’m very pleased with my outcome. He explains everything to you in a way you are able to understand before surgery. He has the best bedside matters, and he is excellent in what he does. I thank my nurse for finding him for me. He does come to Eunice, Louisiana and that made my visits easy and a short ride for me. I do recommend Dr. Fautheree to anyone with back problems.”


Carencro, LA

“Dr. Fautheree is not only an excellent and thorough doctor, he genuinely cares about his patients. I met him 5 years ago when I was brought to the Lake emergency room. God had him there to save my life. I have been in his professional care since that time.”

“Dr. Fautheree saved my life! I had an aneurysm and almost died. He put a Stent and a coil in and stopped it from bursting. His PA, Ms. Watts, and staff are wonderful!”
