Dr. Fowler provided excellent care for me. I would recommend him to all my friends and family.

July 31, 2015

Seemed more like a peer to peer relationship than simply a doctor and patient one.

July 28, 2015

I feel very lucky to have been refered to a great surgeon.

July 28, 2015

I was very pleased with the doctor and his staff.

July 07, 2015

My visit was a follow-up to a prior surgery. Dr. Fowler reversed nerve damage that was done to my arm from a prior operation. While there is residual nerve pain, it's not at the unbearable level it was prior to his procedure. My case was a bit unique. Dr. Lin collaborated with Dr. Fowler who researched my situation and determined the best path to take to alleviate the pressure that was on my nerve. I am very grateful to Dr. Fowler for how he has helped me.

Dr Fowler is an excellant doctor and I would recommend him to anyone who was having a problem with their hand or upper extremity.

June 09, 2015

He is the best physician I have ever interacted with. He has a great personality and makes patients feel at ease. He asks for the patients input, does not talk down to you and explains procedures.
