Dr Fowler is the best ortho doctor that there is for UPMC. So knowledgeable with an amazing heart and bedside manner.

Dr. Fowler has been great. He even bought me a cup of coffee when my surgery was delayed.

June 28, 2016

Waited 45 minutes past my appointment time to be seen. Once i got in the room i didn't wait very long and got xrays and was treated withing 30 minutes.

June 24, 2016

Dr. Fowler performed rotator cuff surgery and my recovery has been excellent. I had the same surgery two years ago from a different surgeon and the recovery was much longer and more painful.

June 24, 2016

My overall experience with Dr. Fowler have been extremely positive, from my initial visit and throughout surgery and post-surgical care. He takes the time to listen, provides thoughtful comments to any questions I've had, and has been very informative about surgery and recovery. He is always personable and encouraging. I would recommend him to anyone in need of an orthopaedic surgeon.
