Dr. Chen, without exaggeration, literally saved my life several yrs ago. He is non judgemental, has fantastic bedside manners, and really knows his business. All doctors could take a page from his book.

I have been one of Dr. Rowe's patients for 25+ years - and if you're looking for a top-notch ophthalmologist - then look no further. If Dr. Rowe can't diagnose (or fix) whatever eye problems you have, he will send you to someone else who can. He's one of the best eye docs in the Kalamazoo area.

He is a miracle worker. Dr. Carpenter replaced my hip 2 years ago, and I forget about it now because I am pain-free!! Recuperation was faster than I ever could have thought. I can't speak about him highly enough.
