I did respond that my wait time was longer than expected. Although the nurse came in right away, there was a longer wait time for the doctor. This has been the only time I've ever had to wait to be seen, which I understand happens sometimes. It was a very busy Monday morning in the office.

I have previously worked with Dr Rowland. He replaced both my knees, very successfully. So when I started having hips pains I got a referral to him from my PCP. He had an x-ray taken before I saw him, so we were able to efficiently look at and discuss my situation. I'm comfortable with his diagnosis and with his suggested follow up actions. I am totally satisfied.

I have great respect for Dr. Roland and Julie his NP. They are willing to take the time and listen with care and concern. He was very busy on my last visit so Julie came in to discuss the options with my knee and pending interest in knee replacement. Then Dr. Roland also came in to talk with me. I am currently waiting to hear from the office re: surgury date.... and may be there soon with a new issue.

On this visit, i mostly saw the Physician's Assistant. She was very nice, very knowledgeable, and all my answers on this survey apply to her. However, before I left, I did ask to meet the doctor, whom I did not know, and he did come in and speak to me for a few minutes.
