Dr Rowland has always treated me with respect and professionalism. My treatment has been wonderful and my surgery a huge success. One and a half years ago I would never have thought I would be able to do the things I can and do do today. In May I participated in a ballon fight with my grandkids and my husband and I have taken road trips to eleven different cities since 1/1/19, touring museums, walking around, climbing steps and just having a wonderful time. Today marked a full year since my last surgery and sorry to say most likely my last (barring any unseen issues) I will miss Dr Rowland and the staff but will definitely give recommendations and high ratings to Spur Shore Ortho!

the Doctor shows concern and listens to my concerns and questions. He's very good at helping me understand my specific issue without sugar coating. He took the time to review my knee issues from my surgery to give me as much information as possible.

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.
