I LOVE DR FOWLER HE HAS DONE SEVERAL SURGERYS ON ME AND I HAVE GOT EXCELLENT CARE--I HAVE TO WAIT TOO LONG AT THE KAUFMANN OFFICE
Dr. Fowler is amazing. He always shows true care and concern for me and all of his patients. I know I can email him with questions and he answers my concerns quickly. Dr. Fowler is a wonderful person and doctor and I feel very fortunate to be under his care. I recommend him to all my friends and family!
Dr. Fowler is one of the nicest people and definitely one of the best doctors I've ever gone to. He was extremely courteous and extremely friendly. He took as much time as I needed to explain things in detail. It is rare to find someone in this field that treats people with as much respect as he does.
dr Fowler was very prompt and understanding
Dr. Fowler has been treating me for quite a while now and is ALWAYS kind,compassionate and listens to my questions and to what I have to say.Dr. Fowler also answers all of my questions and addresses my concerns completely.I feel that I am in excellent hands with him and trust in him completely
Dr. Fowler was wonderful ! Definitely would see him again
this was a great experience from making the appointment, arriving for the appointment, and my experience with the provider. I did not wait long and everyone was kind and spoke in plain language. It was a thorough exam and everything was explained in a clear concise manner. the provider had a very positive welcoming attitude as well!
fast efficient office visit. wonderful
Dr Fowler was great. he was easy to speak with and process a course of treatment that made sense.
I had a wrist injury that was impeding my ability to cycle comfortably. Doctor Fowler and his team were quick to determine the source of my issue and treat it immediately with a shot of cortisone carefully administered with ultrasounds. I was in an out of the office in less than 45mins and back on my bike right after. It was perhaps one of the most effective and positive medical visits I've ever had.
exceptional experience - best provider I have seen to date
Dr. Fowler is one of the best doctors I have seen. I wish he were a PCP! But he is very warm, friendly, and set me at ease before a surgery he performed. That's not something you always see with ortho surgeons. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone for hand issues. He also explains things at a level that was informative, understandable, but not condescending.
Awesome. Dr. Fowler is wonderful.
Dr. John Fowler is the exemplar of the qualities a patient wants in a doctor. His patience in explaining my condition to me, and in responding to my questions was outstanding, and he conveyed genuine concern for my welfare. His communication was instrumental in allaying my concerns about the pace of my recovery. My husband, who is not easily impressed, spoke with Dr. Fowler by telephone immediately after my surgery, and he too remarked upon Dr. Fowler's manner and how he conveyed genuine concern for me, as his patient. I have had experiences with other physicians who did not communicate nearly as well as Dr. Fowler and seemed to consider patients a necessary evil. Dr. Fowler is clearly a gifted surgeon, and importantly, he realizes there's more to a physician's role than what occurs in the operating room. All in all, I couldn't possibly say anything negative about Dr. Fowler. I praise him to the skies to anyone who'll listen, and I'm sure he will continue to have an extremely successful career.
He was very good with my daughter. I appreciated that he talked to her and asked her questions also. A lot of drs don't include children .
Dr Fowler is a good Doctor. I would tell you he has earned my respect.
Dr Fowler has been great to work with and easy to talk to and explain problems i've experienced with my wrist and has worked to help in any way he could.
Dr.Fowler is fantastic. I was early for my appointment and he was able to see me earlier than my scheduled appointment time. He always takes the time to explain everything, offer advice and answer questions in a way that is easy to understand and that means so much to me as a patient.
care was gud no complaints my answer to my question was answered
we absolutely love Dr. Fowler. He has always been kind, patient and very knowledgeable with our son and his care. Our son is only 4 years old and feels very comfortable around him. Dr. Fowler is a wonderful physician that loves what he does!
I thought Dr Fowler was the best doctor I have seen so far for my condition. He knew what my problem was immediately and provided treatment. Was very kind and understanding for a doctor. And very nice looking !!!
looks right at you and makes you feel at ease and explains all things about your problems
Provider discovered fracture to finger that occurred last July. It should have been found by personnel at Montefiore hospital, where I was taken at the time.
Although the office was running behind, the receptionist and Dr Fowler both apologized-communication was excellent. Dr Fowler was very personable, pleasant and explained everything very well.
Dr. Fowler is the best. He is so kind and compassionate. I always highly recommend him to anyone with hand issues.

He is the best!!!!!
Dr. Fowler is extremely gifted, and I'm very lucky to have had him as my surgeon in two recent instances. He seems like a great guy, and it is clear that everyone that works with highly respects and appreciates him (based on observation of how all of those who assist in pre-op speak of him). I'm truly thankful for all he has done for me, and Pittsburgh is extremely lucky to have such a knowledgeable, approachable and talented expert here to help us. Thanks, Dr. Fowler!
Dr Fowler is one of the finest physians I have ever seen
Dr. Fowler always takes the time to listen. He's always polite. He's always helpful. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
I had bad experiences with other Dr but I hope this Dr would be the right doctor cuz all my other doctors always would say I don't need surgery. just that I need to go to physical therapy. and I know the physical therapy would not help
Dr. Fowler was very knowledgeable, competent, always explained everything and treated my son and myself with the highest level of respect and he was genuine too. The surgery was a complete success.
Brenda, I believe her name is, older African American woman, is always so pleasant to encounter. she is always smiling and friendly. She brightens my day when I go into the office. Dr. did an incredible job on my right carpal tunnel surgery! He is always nice and explains everything.
Dr. Fowler is respectful of my questions and concerns and takes time to address both, offering medical explanations when appropriate and helpful. He seems quite sensitive to patients' needs.
Dr. Fowler is wonderful. I have recommended him to anyone who might need a hand surgeon or doctor. He is the best. The office staff is really courteous and kind as well.
I was over 30 mins late because I got lost. They moved my appt up because he had somewhere else to be. With that even me being over 30mins late Dr. Fowler stayed and seen me there. He is such a nice Dr. Her surgery went well her thimbs are straight and she has little to no pain. I would recommend him to everyone. You guys are lucky to have him in your hospital.

This is my second appointment with Dr. Fowler and both times I was impressed. I also appreciate the fact that he usually has a resident and a student along with him and they openly discuss the diagnosis and ask questions. I have observed that Dr. Fowler is a teacher as well as a doctor.
great doctor and staff
Dr. Fowler and his team did an amazing job with my needs for having surgery done. I can not thank everyone enough for helping me through this all!
Dr. Fowler's demeanor was exemplary compared to any other doctor/specialist I've had contact with in my life. This man is knowledgeable, patient, informative and sincere professional. The poster child for what every physician should be. I have nothing negative to say about him as he stands heads and shoulders above every other doctor I've seen in the past forty years.
Dr. Fowler is an amazing doctor and a fantastic person! He is very kind and he truly cares about his patients. I had shoulder surgery, which can be rough, but I knew Dr. Fowler would provide me with the best care possible. I have complete faith in him because I know he has my best interest in mind. Dr. Fowler has been a blessing to me and my girls, who are also his patients. We are very thankful for him:)
UPMC has done a pretty decent job
Dr. Fowler is an excellent doctor who listens and cares.
I felt like Dr. Fowler was a little rushed and didn't give me a ton of information on tendinitis. I still think he is a very good doctor, however, and would definitely see him again.
I was referred to Dr. Fowler by my daughter, he restored the function of her hand after an injury. he was always respectful of my participation in my daughter's care and readily answered questions.

takes to long
Dr. Fowler is one of the best providers we have ever encountered at UPMC. He is pleasant, positive and compassionate not to mention extremely competent as an orthopedic surgeon. My son had two broken bones and recruired surgery for a bad break in his pinkie finger. He completely connected with the young teenager by explaining all the details to him in an easy to understand manner. The rapport he developed also helped to encourage Austin to follow through on his treatment plan and continuing hand therapy. We are so grateful for Dr. Fowler's approach to his care and commend him for all he does to provide excellent care to his patients!!

Dr Fowler has been my physician for two years and he is nothing short of amazing. Hes done two very difficult surgeries on me and both times my recovery was excellent. I have a brittle bone disease and there is no other ortho that I would want to be on this journey with this Dr Fowler. I couldn't be prouder that he's my physician.
He asked a lot of questions and listened carefully to my responses.
I had to get an injection in my hand. Dr. Fowler was so very compassionate and explained the whole process while he was injecting my hand. It hurt but he helped me through it. He is a very understanding and caring doctor. In my books he is the best!

I appreciate the respect I felt he showed me as a patient in sharing with me the xrays that had been taken in the ER following my accident, and explaining to me the results of those xrays, as well as discussing with me the options available to treat my broken bones.

excellent surgeon, he acknowledges the patient as well as the family. great bedside manner. makes you feel comfortable asking questions, spend time and always available for routine questions and urgent issues.

Dr. Fowler has made me feel very confident in my care. I know that he has done his absolute best in every circumstance and that is why I am doing so well.
dr. fowler is very kind and attentive. while he did explain the aftercare necessary re: my injury, it would have been helpful to receive a printout of some sort as a reminder of the steps i should take. because of the severity of the injury, i'm afraid i wasn't as attentive as i might have been.
Dr. Fowler and his team were remarkable...-very advanced quality of care in comparison to other hand specialists that I have seen.-Dr. Fowler remember me from 2 years prior when he repaired my son's elbow, remembering my son's name and college-amazing quality and speed of care from exrays to injections, especially the ultrasound guide for the injection

Dr Fowler is nothing short of amazing! Every physician should take note of his bedside manner. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable in orthopedics he shows compassion and true interest in his patients. UPMC should be thankful and very prideful that he is a member of their staff.
Dr. Fowler and his team are some of the best medical professionals I have ever had contact with. They handled my child's health problems with compassion, understanding and the utmost respect to us. Dr. Fowler gave us his personal contact information and told us to contact him with any concerns. And he thanked us for the opportunity to care for our child. in a day and age where many doctors just rush you through to see as many patients as possible, it was very refreshing to have Dr. Fowler treat us and our child as wonderful as he has. I would highly recommend Dr. Fowler to any parent whose child needs an orthopedic Dr.

Dr. Fowler actually looks at his patients when he speaks with them, and is a caring, dedicated, excellent doctor/surgeon. He efficiently and effectively performed carpal tunnel surgery on my left wrist in November of 2016; and I had an appointment with him last Friday, June 16, 2017, concerning my right thumb. He, once again, showed me the same caring and concern as he did during my highly-successful, pain-free carpal tunnel surgery. He has my highest recommendation!!
I feel that I am receiving excellent care from Dr. Fowler and his staff. My emergency visit due to an accident was very timely, and everyone was very caring.I also received wonderful care during my surgery and follow-up appointment.

Best provider I could hope for. looked out for me and not try to shove me back to work to soon. Did an awesome job.
Dr. Fowler is a knowledgeable, experienced professional. I am untrusting him in my care 100%. He was referred by my PCP Dr. Zimmerman.
Dr Fowler and staff were exceptional.
I liked Dr. Flower very much and how he described everything to me about my shoulders.
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.
the wait was way too long and is every time unless my appointment in early in the morning.
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.
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
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.
An amazing surgeon! Very kind and understanding.
I love Dr. Fowler and everyone on his staff!

Dr. Fowler is Fantastic !!
Very good experience.
Dr. Fowler has been treating my daughter for an elbow injury. She had surgery last year on both arms. The process has been difficult for her and Dr. Fowler has been there for her every step of the way. He not only physically healed her, but he has helped calm her fears and gain confidence in her recovery. He helped her develop a plan for her return to her sport. Dr. Fowler treats my daughter like he would his own family. It makes me so happy to know that he cares about her so much. My daughter looks up to Dr. Fowler and wants to be a special doctor like him someday.
Dr. Fowler is an outstanding doctor. He is so nice and caring and he takes his time with my daughters. He has been treating my children for 3 years and my girls adore him. They look forward to visits with him because they know he will listen to their concerns and he truly cares about their feelings. He never rushes and he is always very kind. Dr. Fowler is a blessing!
Dr Fowler has taken care of my needs for the past two years. I have the highest regard for him. He is extremely professional .I can't imagine going to anyone else for my upper extremity needs.
Dr. Fowler is one of the best doctors I've ever had treat me.
No nurse was involved. It was a delightful experience to have a doctor who was so excellent. He listened carefully, explained the injury to my hand, gave me three options of treatment and carried through immediately with my choice of a steriod shot.
I didn't really have any pain control issues, but there isn't a not applicable button. -- My experience with the office is excellent. They were very friendly, and thorough.
Excellent care provided. I would recommend him to any of my family members. Great listener and very easy to communicate with.
Dr Fowler and staff provided awesome service and care with great compassion and concern. It made my experience much more pleasant.
could not have been treated any better by Dr Fowler or the staff
he was one of the most attentive doctors I have ever seen!!!
this was our first time ever being seen at the Upmc sport complex. I was more than impressed with the friendliness and caring staff that is that this facility. thank you for making our visit as wonderful as it could be with a child with a broken arm. thank you thank you!
I have had nothing but positive results when seeing Dr. Fowler. He and the staff are great and I have recommended him to other friends who have had bone issues.
I was very pleased with Dr. Fowler, the information he relayed, and care he provided. My impression of Dr. Fowler was that he was genuinely interested in helping me feel better. He did not appear rushed and took his time to explain everything clearly and succinctly. Overall experience--OUTSTANDING! His resident, John, was also exceptional pleasant and informative. I would also like to acknowledge Lonnie, who I think was a nurse. (Lonnie did introduce his title but I was so nervous that I forget now.) Lonnie was extremely kind and made good conversation. He smiled the entire time and really put my fears to calm.

Dr. Fowler and the team of nurses and the anesthesiologist were all Amazing! my daughter was very nervous for surgery, but the care we received at Children's made all the difference!!!

Dr. Fowler is a the best surgeon i ever met. Professional in every aspect.
Doctor Fowler is such a nice guy. I have seen him for my shoulder and my hand, and he always makes me a priority. 10/10 would recommend.
Dr. Fowler was WONDERFUL! Took the time to explain my issues in ways that I was able to follow. I will (and did) recommend him to friends and family!
it was an excellent experience
I've seen Dr. Fowler on two occasions. He's professional and courteous. However, I've had extensive wait times on each visit. For my visit on 8/18, I had a 3:15 appointment and was left waiting in the exam room for 1 hour and 15 minutes before seeing Dr. Fowler. The wait times need to be reduced substantially.
Dr was SO nice and he explained Everthing clearly and seemed to care. I would LOVE if he was OUR own Dr for everything!!!
Dr. Fowler is one of the best specialists I've seen in the UPMC system. I always enjoy the time spent and I always learn something about my joints, ligaments and bones.
Amazing care, very concerned. did not have a wait time for him to enter my room. We set surgery up for the very next day. Couldn't ask for a better Doctor.
