I had my first appt with Dr. Rowder, after being referred to him by my primary doctor. I was thoroughly impressed. I didn't wait long and he took th time to car fully explain kidney disease. He answered lol my questions and eased my worries.

Based on his actions outside of the office today, I have to conclude he has has very poor bedside manner. Rather than Dr. Rowder simply apologizing for his actions, he instead chose to state he would repeat his actions if given the opportunity. He will not be a doctor for my family or friends.

Excellent, clear communication with Dr Rowder and his nurse. Answered all questions about meds and test results. Worked to get me connected with transplant waiting lists and oversaw my post transplant maintenance. I appreciate getting all my phone messages returned quickly as well as the after hours help line.
