I found Dr. Rockower and his staff to be a breath of fresh air. Doctor's care manner is outstanding. he listens. He is empathetic. His explanations are very simple and educational. He has worked with me to find less expensive prescriptions. I see the reviews that complain about wait time, but in this era - during this time ....I would weigh a wait time against caring attention by a doctor to patients every day! His staff is very accommodating. The office is very clean and well ventilated. Well done, Dr. Rockower and Ocala Health!

Yes I would recommend Dr Rockower and his staff. I have had Robin check me in twice and Robin is very informative and professional. I appreciated all her information. She is great. Very nice facility and I really like the early available hours to get in. Having to wear a mask, I understand, is for all patients benefit but it does make it hard to understand what all is being said. But, its okay. This will all be over with eventually and we can get back to normal. Thanks

I've been a patient of Dr. Rockower for a few years, mostly for annual checkups. I believe he has a depth/breadth of medical knowledge not usually found in primary care situations. He has good insight into medical terms and issues, both in and out of his medical discipline. As such, he can identify the best imaging/specialist/surgeon to followup on a medical condition.

Acute condition. Senior. I was concerned of being hospitalized as a precaution. Dr. Rockower is my gp. I was able to see him that day. Prescription effective. He arranged for appropriate imaging locally . Back home within 3 hours of appointment! Saw him for follow up 3 days later. Aok Dr. Rockower is low key. Treats us like grown ups. Very knowledgeable and professional.

Dr Rockower is ok for patients with common disease but chronic undiagnosed disease and/or rare inherited disorders, my health has deteriorated due to his relying on CBC only and he is not up to date on Palliative care with curative care, my pain provider MD wanted me to change primary due to my Livedo mottled skin with skin lesions that took months and at times over year to heal and no diagnostics to find the underlying medical cause, then more symptoms SOB, diaphoresis worsening weakness on on until I did not want to live any longer as my concerns were dismissed. Doctors take a oath to do no harm! Patients should not have to feel there is nothing to live for due to poor quality life and symptoms that interfere with daily living and if not gotten worse due to my decline I was unable to prosecute the handyman and his cohort for stealing over $900 cash and unauthorized charges on my card. I am moving on as no patient should be denied diagnostic tests so that a treatment may help them

Dr, Rockower is one of the best doctors I've had, and I've seen over 150+ different doctors since 2004 looking for one that can help me with my many health issues. He is always attentive and quickly can either identify the problem, or send you to the specialist that can. When I needed paperwork filled out, which I stressed over, he and his staff filled out everything, and FAX it multiple times without any problems on his end.

Dr. Rockower is awesome. He can quickly assess the situation, come up with a treatment to address the issue, and get you on your way without you feeling rushed or “just another patient”. He keeps himself knowledgeable on the latest medical issues and treatments which, in turn, gives his patients the benefits of leading edge medical technology. I’ve never had to wait more than a couple of days for an emergency consultation or a week for routine visits. So happy to have found Dr. Rockower.
