Great compassionate provider!

I never spoke to a nurse at the Sports Medicine Facility about his care. But the other staff is amazin . I would take my son back to Dr. John Fowler any time. He's an amazing and understandable docto . He listens when you speak instead of cutting you off. I would love to keep him as my children's Orthopedic Doctor.

Visit was for ED follow up/specialist evaluation of hand injury for my 4 year old daughter - everyone at Lemieux Complex in Cranberry was amazing - they made her feel so special, from Dr Fowler's staff downstairs to Jacqueline in PT/OT upstairs who squeezed her in as a walk in to make a splint for her hand. Thank you so much to a great team!!
