I personally have thanked *Dr. Rowland for devoting the time and effort to acquire the skill and knowledge to perform the two hip replacement operation so flawlessly, due to his expertise. I'm sure that my recuperation period was contracted and virtually painless. In addition, everyone on *Dr. Rowlands staff was cordial, knowledgeable and ultra-professional. (Special thanks to P.A. Haviland.) I only have two hips, but if I had a third - and it needed replacing - I would contact *Dr. Rowland in a flash. He's my personal miracle worker. Your organization should be proud of him and his staff. You're fortunate to have him.

The experience was "AWESOME" Dr. Rowland replaced my left hip, in January 2020. I did not know what to expect with an exam via Computer & Cam. He had me stand, do a marching exercise, left leg side extension & Other movements, so he could see how easily I could do those movements. It was truly amazing ! PHIL BERRY

We were pleased to see that most of the chairs were set aside - stacked upon each other in corner of waiting room - chairs set with 1 chair set by itself; 2 chairs set together through wait room - 1 or 2 chairs set quite this 3-6 feet apart. Everyone including us were wearing masks.

Dr. Rowland explained the problem with my knee, reviewed the x-rays, explained the treatment he was going to do, and explained what to expect over the upcoming days. He told me that he would contact me if lab results warranted. Dr. Rowland took time to answer questions and explain short term restrictions before resuming normal activities. With all that is going on with SARS-CoV-2, the entire staff was excellent making everything as routine as possible.
