my bursitis seems to be completely cured from the single visit. the doctor offered me the option of sterioid tablets in place of injections which was very convenient and painless. I really appreciated that he gave me this option instead of automatically doing the cortisone injection which many doctors do.

We have been brushed off about my sons issues for so long by other doctors. Dr Roland not only listened and addressed all concerns but when he saw nothing on X-ray continued to investigate further. Hopefully after our next visit we will have more information but to be taken seriously and not as an over concerned parent was relieving.

I chose to see Dr. Rowland based on my husband's positive experience. I was just as pleased with my outcome. Dr. Rowland immerses himself with your issues making you feel confident and well cared for. He is thorough and empathetic not to mention 'spot on' with his diagnosis and treatment.

Everything related to the necessary visit to the doctor was top notch. The doctor has a special ability to share in layman's language the medical need that existed. It was ever so comforting to be able to return to this specialist as he could so very well meet my needs and provide assistance. I am most thankful for his valued efforts. He is one can-do doctor. He made a world of difference for me.
