Patient Comments (1)
in Silver Spring, MD |
He is the best. Following my pedestrian accident in 2001, he was the doctor that attended to me and continued onto few years afterward. He was very caring, loving, down-to-heart, and the nicest human person. At the time of the accident, I did not have an insurance, yet that did not deface Dr. Rockower from giving me the utmost or best treatment. His and possibly others in the emergency room following my accident saved my life. I will be ever grateful to him and others at Suburban Hospital, Bethe
