Dr. Alexander Rowland assured me that after breaking my wrist just after Easter, I would be back to playing ping pong by summer. With his excellent skills and advice, I was able to come back to normal play just as he said, and come back to the ping pong player I was before the injury. I used ping pong to get my wrist back into shape and didn't require any rehab. It was a lot more fun! I highly recommend Dr. Rowland and ping pong for therapy!!! Photo on my Facebook! Patricia F.

Dr. Rowland is the best! I am a repeat customer. I would not see anyone else. I have broken my arm twice, dislocated my elbow, and carpal tunnel in both hands. This has resulted in surgery twice, cast, etc. Each time my recovery was quick with no issues and minimal time off work. Dr. Rowland always takes the time to answer my questions and make sure I get the best of care. His staff is wonderful also, very helpful and cares about your well being. Two thumbs up to Dr. Rowland and team!

Dr. Rowland listened to me attentively, carefully explained all options to take care of the problem with my hand, and when we decided on surgery, he clearly explained the procedure. My surgery was scheduled for the following week and when I arrived at the surgical center, I was taken into the operating room without having a long wait and afterwards was discharged in a timely fashion. I would recommend Dr. Rowland without hesitation.

I recently had a carpal tunnel release done by Dr. Roland. The admission process through discharge was smooth and flawless. The facility was spotless. Staff was knowledgeable and professional. The RN, the anesthesiologist, and Dr. Rowland answered all questions and concerns. I would have scheduled my procedure sooner if I had realized the surgery and recovery was this smooth. Thank you Dr. Roland!

I saw Dr. Rowland for Carpal Tunnel surgery and I am very happy with the process and the results! The front desk at the Concord Plaza location gets a little crazy at times because there are so many doctors there, but everyone is helpful and friendly. The doctor and staff are awesome. Dr was great, answered all my questions, and staff made scheduling the surgery easy. Surgery was smooth and 1.5 months later I'm back to normal!

I came here due to a dislocated elbow to be recovered in time. From day one this place has been so nice, helpful, really care about wanting to get you back to normal. Dr. Rowland never sugarcoated anything to me on my visits about my elbow. He answered all my questions and most of the time he would ask my questions before I even asked them. Therapy was with awesome people who don't just get you back to having range of motion but also ask you questions and really get involved in your recovery.

I was referred to Dr. Rowland by the RN at the urgent care I went to for what was believed to be an infection in my finger. I'm very glad she did. It turned out that I had a cyst which Dr. Rowland removed. I was given great care by him and all his staff were very nice and professional. I'm very thankful for the great care I was provided.
