I was able to check in online prior to going to my appointment and only waited 10 minutes to be called to go to x-ray and be placed in a room. Dr. Rowland did my surgery on my left hand a year ago and fixed the problem I had at that time therefore he was the obvious choice to examine and treat my right hand now. He’s very personable, punctual and professional. I would and will recommend him to others who have hand issues.

I went to see Dr. Rowland due to a trigger thumb and a fall which resulted in further injury to the same arm. Dr. Rowland gave me a thorough explanation of the injuries, how he would treat each, and and answered all of my questions.
