Dr Fowler is amazing. I've worked in healthcare for ten years and he is the most respectable, compassionate doctor I've ever met. He has operated on my daughters hand twice now and I always feel so confident leaving her in his care. I cannot praise him enough he spends time with his patients and is extremely knowledgeable. UPMC is lucky to have him.

Dr. John Fowler was outstanding. He squeezed me in after a scheduling mix-up, and was most gracious about it. He thoroughly explained my surgery in terms anyone could understand. If there was a 6-Star fating, he would get it from me. I have full confidence in him for my thumb surgery next week.

I had an appointment with Dr. Fowler on 02/26/2016. He explained the progress I was making & now I am scheduled for therapy since I need to increase the strength & amount of weight I can lift. It is great to know that your Doctor keeps you on track. His concern is getting you back to your optimum health. I think you should have a space for his staff. Ashley was wonderful & assisted me when I was checking in. Jennifer checked me out. GREAT STAFF! THANK YOU!!!
