Dr. Rowland is a wonderful physician who takes a great interest in the immediate problem as well as the progress made by me several years after he performed multiple surgeries on my knee and both hands and elbows. I completely trust him with any orthopedic issue requiring his attention. He is the best and most skilled surgeon I have ever encountered.

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.

He took his time and I never felt rushed out.the PA that called me back was so kind and considerate. I am sorry I cannot remember her name but want to thank her for her kindness.
