Dr Fowler and staff were exceptional.

I liked Dr. Flower very much and how he described everything to me about my shoulders.

February 17, 2017

the wait was way too long and is every time unless my appointment in early in the morning.

Dr. Fowler might be one of the best providers that I have ever encountered. He certainly provided patient centered care when he agreed to perform my surgery without general anesthesia (only a nerve block) when I requested that. He spends alot of time with patients so that they truly understand what is going on. He is patient, professional and provides individualized care for patients. You are lucky to have him as a UPMC physician.

My child has seen Dr. Fowler in the past, about 3 1/2 years ago. He is a wonderful doctor. Very caring, friendly and easy to talk to - not something always seen with doctors. I recommend him whenever I can.

February 14, 2017

Dr. Fowler is a wonderful dr. with an excellent patient rapport. He has done 2 surgeries on me for a broken finger and a broken wrist. He does excellent work and I have complete recoveries from both surgeries. He is very kind and caring and I truly appreciate that.

excellent care was provided by PA Allison and Dr. John Fowler.Dr. Fowler did advanced hand surgery with fantastic quick recovery

February 02, 2017

I have been very disheartened lately towards the Health Field especially pediatrics BUT Dr. Fowler and the staff at UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex were amazing and I am so glad to know that there are still great physicians with genuine care. I was very impressed with the whole appointment. Thank you Dr. Fowler! Your smile and care made me want to fill out this survey to let you know you were a blessing to my son.

My experience at the Mario Lemieux UPMC Sports Complex was excellent. I broke a bone in my hand and they were able to treat me within 2 hours. The staff went out of their way to move up my appointment by one hour once I got to the Sports Complex. Kudos to Dr Fowler and the entire staff at the UPMC Mario Lemieux Sports Complex.

I love Dr. Fowler and everyone on his staff!
