in Cumming, GA |
I am very thankful to have Dr Rowe for my Dad's Cardiologist. He is very kind, caring and compassionate. He is very patient, he listens and answers our questions. He follows up to make sure my Dad is doing okay. It is easy to reach him especially when my dad needs a prescription for his medications. It is comforting to know that in spite of his professional success he remains humble. I wish we have more doctors like Dr. Rowe.

I can't say enough wonderful words about Dr. Don Rowe. He is a wonderful cardiologist who truly cares about his patients. Thank you Dr. Rowe for your compassion and professionalism. You are truly a class act!
in Johns Creek, GA |
Dr. Rowe is simply a rockstar! He's caring and compassionate and wants you to have a very healthy heart, but he goes so much above and beyond just the heart. He cares about you as a human being and wants to see you become the healthiest version of yourself possible. He gave me a couple small tips regarding overall lifestyle and my blood pressure dropped quickly. Goodbye medications! Today marked my lowest blood pressure reading in 30 yrs. He will be our family cardiologist for life :)

Dr. Rowe and his staff were excellent. He is a great listener, shows high degree of competency and compassion. He was great in answering all my questions and taking time to inform me about my situation. Highly recommend Dr. Rowe and his great staff in Johns Creek and Northside Hospital.

Dr. Rowe is a very special doctor. I rarely if ever fill surveys out, but this man deserves it. It doesn't take a long review. If you see him you know your in the hands of the best. Everything you want in your doctor. He saved my fathers life. He is my cardiologist and takes care of my mother in law also.

Dr. Rowe was very informative and his explanation of my condition was very precise and understandable. The office staff was extremely friendly.
in Norcross |
I have longed for a physician that I could trust. I'm not scared into becoming healthy but inspired to become healthy. Doctor Rowe informs me about my condition in a way that is compasssionate and positive, yet with a seriousness wherein I feel respected and a priority. He is quite knowledgeable and I feel well informed and convinced I receive the zenith of healthcare from the best doctor.
in Duluth |
Dr. Don Rowe is undoubtedly one of the best that I have seen in recent times. I find him to be well rounded, extremely knowledgeable and I can tell he loves what he does. I'm usually very uptight when visiting any doctor and find that he always finds a way to put me at ease before getting down to business. He listens keenly to my concerns and is usually very frank, honest and outright...does NOT sugarcoat anything. I trust his judgement and would not hesitate to recommend him!!!
Boca Raton, Florida |
Dr. Rowe was not only attentive to both my cardiac and overall risk assessment needs, but he was thorough in his assessment of my overall wellness and health. His skill set and compassion was unlike anything I had ever encountered with any healthcare professional. Dr. Rowe is by far the best healthcare professional I have ever had the privilege of visiting and will continue to do so for all of my heart-related/risk assessment needs.
Atlanta, GA |
Seems like a caring doctor but told my private information to someone I did not approve.
