My experience with this visit was very good and the doctor was very kind and informative about my condition.

January 08, 2016

I work with a few of the hand surgeons and when I realized I had a problem that required attention from a hand surgeon, it was a no brainier for me who I wanted to see. I have witnessed Dr Fowler's interactions with patients, colleagues, and staff, and have always been impressed. I knew he was the person I would want to care for me or any of my family, and I trust his judgment completely

January 07, 2016

Doctor was attentive and respectful to me and my child. Doctor was able to talk to my child in a friendly, non-intimidating way. I appreciate this as a mother because children are often nervous or scared when going into a doctor's office. Doctor was also knowledgeable about my child's health issue. Staff was also nice. We had a quick, productive doctor's visit.

Dr. Fowler is excellent. Always takes the time to listen to my concerns and allows time to answer questions for me. I am a health care provider and I have recommended him to several people. They have had equally great experiences with him.

E$xceptinally excellent service and showed concern for me. a perfect 10 rating for the physician and staff who acted in a very efficient and pfofessional manner.

Dr. Fowler was the best decision I could have made. He walked me through his reasoning, explained the anatomy of my finger in a way that I could understand so we could reach a decision together. He listened to every concern I had, no matter how big or small. I had no doubts through the 3 surgeries I had because I trusted that he would take care of me. UPMC is very lucky to have him.
