I usually see Dr McConville but this issue was my lower back/ hip and Dr. MC does not see someone with that issue. This is the first time I saw Dr. Roland and I would definitely see him again. He was attentive and knowledgeable and has a great bedside manner.

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.

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!
