Dr. David Fowler has always been very patient & professional in addressing my medical problem...............
Dr.Fowler is the BEST, and the staff is too, Peace
Everything went as well as I could ask.
Dr. Fowler is a great listener, while some Drs. seem to be more focused on the computer in front of them. He listens and tries to figure out timelines for pain, injury, etc. When he doesn't have an immediate answer, he troubleshoots and makes referrals to someone who might solve the issue. Great bedside manner.
I feel Dr. Fowler is really trying to get to the bottom of my chronic shin pain but test results just aren't helping. it is so frustrating and it has been nearly 8 months since my TKR.
very pleased with him
Dr. Fowler's office is very professional and efficiently run. I was pleasantly impressed as this is not always the norm in the healthcare industry today.
we love Dr Fowler he is a wonderful Dr
This was my first visit and I was pleased with my exam, treatment and advice.
I have always had great experience with DR Fowler. I wish all my Dr's where like Dr Fowler. He is the best!
Dr.Fowler is an outstanding man and the greatest doctor on this planet earth. He genuinely cares for his patients. He is always kind. Considerate respectful etc. I thank God for putting him in my life. There is none above him. He's at the very top of list as the #1doctor today.
a compassionate caring doctor. I would see Dr Fowler again
Had to wait way too long for an appointment.
I wish all doctors were like Dr. Fowler. He is kind, friendly, and certainly well skilled. He has helped me in the past, and I plan to return to him any time I need his type of specialty.
Dr. FOWLER rather quickly offered surgery as an option after the gel shots did not work. This was a shock as I had been told my arthritis was mild in July. Then he pulled up a chart and it was a patient with same name. That was disconcerting. It seemed like the recommendation came without looking at the chart.
This was my first time seeing Dr Fowler and I was very impressed with his concern for my visit as well as the way in which he explained my condition and the options that were available. I am very happy that I chose Dr Fowler
I so appreciate Dr. Fowler's skill, kindness and willingness to tell me about my orthopedic issues and possible treatments for them.
Dr. Fowler takes the time to evaluate and advise the best care for the problem that I am dealing with
Dr. Fowler is very thorough and listens to you. The staff is helpful as well.
I have been seeing Dr. Fowler for many years.He takes time to talk with me and answerss all my questions. Professional,polite and down to earth. Exceptional////
Thought the discussion with Dr. Fowler was excellent and he spent what I thought was an adequate amount of time to discuss the program (knee replacement) going forward. My only complaint was that I had spent about 40 minutes in the waiting room prior to meeting with the doctor. I don't think the long wait was unusual. Based on past experience, the later in the day of my appointment time the more the physicians (or dentists) are backed up.
Over the last 10 years I had 3 different orthopedic issues and all were handled by Dr Fowler. If at any time in the future if I need orthopedic health care Dr Fowler will be my first choice. I trust him! I find him very personable, professional and knowledgeable.

Unfortunately this was my last visit to see Dr. Fowler because UPMC no longer will take Highmark insurance. What a pity!!
The staff was courteous and polite. I saw the doctor about 30 minutes after the scheduled appointment. He took the amount of time that was necessary to explain things to my husband and me.
every one was friendly and helpful.
Dr Fowler was quite attentive to my needs and answered all my questions about both a shoulder injury and a non related rib injury and allayed my fears on both issues.
Dr. Fowler is always very nice and caring...I'm glad I found him.

I have received the best care from Dr. Fowler and his associates!
Dr. Fowler is an amazing Orthopedic DR. I am very pleased with the care I am receiving.
Too long of a wait for the doctor-- 1 hour 8 minutes before being called back.
Doctor Fowler is top shelf in my opinion - both of my knees were in very bad shape with much pain and we went through all steps ( therapy - shots in the knees but very little improvement with continued serious pain, I am proud to say with his superior surgery results and attention to detail on my follow up visits - I am at the gym again and the only male in our 30 people zumba class dancing again.
excellent bedside manner; it's hard to find doctors that are easy to talk to and make the patient and the parent feel relaxed.
Very good experience, got a shot and it worked. Thanks to Dr. Fowler.
I've only seen Dr. Fowler twice but he always listens to what I have to say and explains everything in detail so that I understand.
Very knowledgeable my problems and necessary treatment needed Pleasant gentleman and doctor
I love Dr. Fowler. he is very personable and listens when you talk to him.
very good care with capable and caring staff.
The medicine prescribed required a pre-authorization from my health insurance company before the prescription could be filled. I called the doctor's office after the pharmacy indicated this complication with the prescription. Dr. Fowler and his staff were able to take complete the of pre-authorization in a few hours and called me back when it was taken care of. This was very helpful and resulted in a minimal delay in getting the prescription filled. The issue was resolved much faster than I had anticipated. Kudos to the doctor and the staff.
very pleased with my care.
Great Dr & Staff
dr fowler has always been a good an very skilled docter.
to long of a wait for the doctortocome back in the exam room after the injection
Provider care is outstanding. Main problem is waiting so long to see the provider. Took 40 minutes from my appt time before I saw provider. Last visit, waited 1 1/2 hours.
dr fowler in my book is the best dr. he talks and makes sure you understand what he is. telling you.
always a great Doctor
have been seeing dr fowler for many years and could not ask for better care.
I have been a patient of Dr. Fowler's since the mid-1990s. I chose him as my orthopedic surgeon long before his affiliation with UPMC and would continue with him regardless of the practice name.
Dr. Fowler has taken care of several orthopedic problems including hip replacement. He listens, offers all possible treatments, and proceeds as we have decided.
I received excellent service at Dr. Fowler's office. Everyone including the receptionist, radiologist, and nurse was kind and courteous. I was seen within minutes of arriving to have x-rays taken. Within seconds, yes seconds, after the x-rays were finished, I was taken to the exam room. Dr. Fowler came in for my examination within the next five minutes. I wouldn't see any other doctor for orthopedic care. Dr. Fowler is caring, thorough, listens to what I have to say, answers my questions, and I feel I received excellent care. Thank you Dr Fowler!
Dr. Fowler was a breath of fresh air. He listened. He didn't immediately want to do surgery to fix my issue. I would go back to him in a heartbeat!!
I had a cortisone shot in each knee and procedure went very well and the shots appear to e working well.
as usual my visit was informative and a pleasant experience
Dr. Fowler , Max and Celeste are the best ! Always treat me with the utmost respect, always answered any questions clearly and made me feel comfortable. And Danielle did a great job , removing my staples ... no pain at all. I can't say enough good things about them ...

I was very impressed with the thorough examination and how Dr. Fowler explained everything to my wife and I. Also how he answered any concerns or questions we both had in a way we both understood.
Dr. Fowler and his staff are excellent.
Everything was good except I had one concern that really wasn't addressed the way I hoped. I have shin pain and wanted a little more advice but the attention was really only on my knee pain.
Enjoyed my visit with the Dr regarding my knee problems. I got xrays, a good explanation, and a cortizone shot in my right knee.
Post op visit, all good.
loved my doctor. answered all my questions, but I will have to leave him because I did not change my insurance providerl
I am pleased with the care I received
I'm very pleased I chose him to be my provider
I have seen Dr. Fowler years ago for surgery on my knees and have always loved him and have recommended him many times over the years. The man that I was seen by the other day was nothing like the Dr. I used to see. The first thing he said when he walked in the room was that he had to hurry up to get to the OR. He couldn't be bothered to listen to what was going on with my elbow or what my concerns were. He was rushed and just wanted to get out of there and the nurse I tried to speak with about a question was the same she told me she had to go to get to the OR. I understand that he has surgeries to do but appoinments shouldn't be scheduled so close to the time that he needs to be in the OR if he cant take the time with a patient during their scheduled appointment time. I was very disappointed and upset by my appointment and I will seek care through another provider for this problem.
it was good
Dr. Fowler was very nice and professional. He explained everything so I understood it and what my options were.
all was good
Dr. David Fowler and his entire team are great. Everyone is very informative, courteous and professional. All of my concerns are always addressed. I would give everyone in this office a 100% rating.
Very caring and listens to what I have to say. Does not seem in a rush to get me out of office.
Believe he thought we were taking too much time and just stabbed the injection in getting the bone instead of it going where it should of. On the third try he was successful.
I have always been treated very well, everytime i have occasion to visit this provider.
He is very knowledgeable and friendly. He answered all my questions.
staff was courteous Dr Fowler was caring and explained everything throughout the visit
very nice dr and staff
Dr. David Fowler, has Always been a doctor with good bed-side manners, whether in the office, or in the hospital.
been seeing him for over 30 years.
very attentive to my concerns. Explained my surgery in a way that I could understand , and really put me at ease ...
Dr. Flower is an excellent provider, and he cares about his patients. He listens carefully to any questions I have.
I like Dr. Fowler
Excellent physician , listen and took into consideration everything, explain in detail different options of treatment.
the doctor was through in checking me out to determine what my medical problem was.
Always get best care
Dr. Fowler is a wonderfully skilled surgeon and compassionate person. I feel completely secure in his care. Wish more doctors were like him.
Every thing went well .
Excellent provider. I would definitely recommend Dr. Fowler to anyone who needs his services.
failed to tell me side affects on injection I received in office
In my opinion, Dr. Fowler is an outstanding physician; takes an interest in his patient.
This was my first, and may be my only time meeting with this care provider. I felt very comfortable and if a need occurs in the future, would definitely re-contact him and this practice.
very easy visit with friendly staff and Dr. Fowler listened as I explained what I thought to be my problem.
Pleasant and professional staff. Was able to get an appointment quickly as well as minimal wait time in the office to see the doctor. Dr. Fowler does an excellent job of explaining approach for treatment and options. Additionally, he is knowledgeable of my history, both medically and professional, which is a credit to him considering that I only see him when I have a problem and it has been almost 2 years. Good staff that is professional as well as fun to deal with.
I am very satisfied with the care provided me.
Dr David Fowler is an excellent physician who remembers me from visit.
I was satisfied and pleased with my visit.
Dr Fowler explained what he thought was was wrong with my back/thigh spasms perfectly although I don't think he realized how painful/uncomfortable it is right now.
very good experience
He is the best
I'm concerned because after my two surgeries on my right knee and my right hip mysterious objects showed up on both x-rays and I did not get a satisfactory explanation from my provider. I'm presently having pain and soreness with my knee.
Dr. Fowler is kind, thorough and professional.
My visit with Dr. Fowler was very good as always. He is always friendly, considerate and willing to listen and answer any and all questions. He is by far my very favorite doctor. However, I am now faced with not being able to continue to see him. I have been a HighmarkPatron for almost 20 years and all of my other doctors are in the AHN plan. Now I am being forced to make a decision that I do not want to make. In order to keep Dr. Fowler, I have to change all of my other doctors - Just because of power and control that UPMC has over the Pittsburgh area. Not a happy camper.
Dr. Fowler is the best
I think the Dr David Fowler should have told me how long it may take to heal because it's already been 2 years and I've been to several UPMC doctors.
this provider is excellent. however, waiting 2 hours past your appointment time to be seen is unacceptable. this is a common occurrence.
We have had more than 20 years of experience with Dr. Fowler. I resent the fact that UPMC and my health care provider Highmark will not permit us to continue this professional link. Besides treating my son (high school football injuries), our daughter and granddaughter, my 96 year old uncle (who had total knee replacement at 92), Dr. Fowler has given both my husband and myself each 2 knee replacements. I totally respect and have the greatest faith in him.
Waited about 50 Min. to see the Provider
Very Knowledgeable and Professional but friendly. The PA I spoke with before Doctor was also very knowledgeable and Professional and friendly. They both knew right away what was wrong with my knee just talking to me and looking at x-rays
Dr. Fowler and his staff are the best medical providers I have ever encountered!!!!
I was completely satisfied by my experience at Dr. Fowlers office on 9/28.
The care I received at Dr. Fowler's office was, as usual, excellent. He and his staff are always great. My only negative experience is this ridiculous survey asking basically the same questions over and over. If I say I had a good overall experience at Dr. Fowler's office, there is no need to ask how I was treated by everyone with whom I came into contact. Please rework this survey. The only reason I am completing it is because I wanted to praise Dr. Fowler and his staff.
Dr Fowler always listens and makes me feel safe with what he may do
Dr Fowler and everyone in the office was great, but I was seen over an hour past my appointment time.
Dr. Fowler is very nice and very competent.
Dr fowler is amazing; made me feel very comfortable
Dr. Fowler was GREAT!!
Very knowledgeable doctor.
This was my first visit with Dr. Fowler. I had been told by a family member that he was very good in his specialty. I was very pleased with his demeanor and how pleasant and easy he was to talk to and that he took the time necessary to answer my questions and give suggestions about any further care I might get. I was very pleased with Dr. Fowler.
Dr. Fowler and staff were very professional. I was very comfortable with my appointment and care. I trust the guidance Dr. Fowler gave me and I am experiencing gradual improvement with my tennis elbow condition. I would not have any second thoughts of making another appointment.
Dr David Fowler... very easy to talk to, and very understanding.
ALWAYS GREAT. TREATED WITH RESPECT BY ALL PEOPLE INVOLVED.
Dr Fowler is great I can't say enough about him
Dr. Fowler is very personable and kind and easy to talk with. He respectfully addresses all my concerns and is sensitive to my health needs. He is a joy to deal with!
today, the provider talked with his intern, or whatever he was, seeming more than to me about non medical topics
Very impressive doc
I thought the visit with the doctor went very well.

excellent doctor & staff
Dr. Fowler was exceptional
Always given the finest care.

Dr. Fowler always is and has been a trusted provider that listens to my concerns and provides excellent service. I trust that he has my best interest in mind when providing advice regarding my condition.
It was fine - I was pleased that I didn't have to wait for 1 or 2 hours
1. Dr. Fowler was in a hurry, he had an emergency surgery waiting @ Forbes. 2. I need new braces. Everyone said to tell the next person. Brace tech said insurance regs had changed, he would get back to me. Still waiting.
Dr. Fowler is an excellent physician who is honest and forthcoming with his treatment. He gives advice but is not dogmatic in his suggestions. He allows me to be part of any decision.
Very good Doctor. Very technical. able to answer questions with research or published reasons for his answer. I feel confortable having him make decisions on my mother's health.
Dr. Fowler provided care for another family member. As a result when the Veteran's Administration wanted to refer me to a civilian provider I chose Dr. Fowler.
Excellent care from Dr. Fowler.

Very nice and caring.
Dr Fowler is always kind and knowledgeable about my problems and what we can do to help with, I highly recommend him to everyone.
there was confusion about getting xrays but was figured out. Dr. Fowler is the best!
Dr. Fowler fit me into his schedule, provided a thorough exam & evaluation of Xrays & prognosis for the future. He was a pleasure to meet professionally & personally especially with my preconceived apprehension. A knee replacement is in the future & he provided the necessary information. Wish I encountered more physicians like him!
A very good experience given the injury that I have
Everyone one was very courteous and knowledgeable concerning my severe pain and concerns. Doctor Fowler and his crew left a very good lasting first impression.
I liked Dr. Fowler but I am still in a lot of pain and after the cordisone shot I couldn't walk for three days, I felt that he should have told me to rest or what to expect in the next couple day's??
I have seen Dr. Fowler for over ten years and I can talk to him like a friend. He knows my past history with my knee and knows when the time is right to do what needs to be done.
Last year I saw a doctor who replaced my knee. After several visits almost 1 year he still never acknowledged my pain and lack of usage of the knee. I came to see Fr. Fowler he had done previous surgery on me and I was very pleased but against my better judgement I went to another dr. I will never never leave the care of dr. Fowler. Put him on a commercial for UPMC he is the best you have!!!!
dr Fowler and the staff are fantastic and his office manager Celeste is second to none
Dr Fowler diagnosed my condition accurately and has provided me with immeasurable relief. this visit was a longer wait than usual but I understand he sometimes gets caught up with patients.
Dr. Fowler is a very compassionate physician. He has been treating me for years and I always can trust his judgement and plans of care for me
Always a good experience. Dr. David Fowler is the best. Also his PA, Max was very nice & friendly.

Dr. Fowler is an excellent doctor. He listened and has a sense of humor, which is good.
I appreciated that Dr. Fowler listened to my concerns. He gave me a few options and was supportive of my decisions and encouraged me to return if the options I chose were not working for me.
my first appointment with Dr Fowler was terrific! He is very compassionate and was very easy to talk with. I certainly would love to have him as my Orthopedic Doctor in the future.
liked Dr. Fowler very much. Could see I was nervous and put me at ease right away.
I am always very satisfied when coming for an appointment.
Dr. Fowler listens and responds to my questions.

Dr Fowler treated me very professionally and seemed very eager to help with my situation. I know I can alway count on him to aim me in the right direction to meet my needs.
Dr. Fowler was very knowledgeable. The only drawback was the wait time.
I was very pleased with my doctor
Have been a patient of Dr. Fowler's for many years for shots in my knees, rotator cuff - both shoulders, carpal tunnel, and other orthopedic issues. I have recommended Dr. Fowler to many of my friends who have been so satisfied with him and their issues.
appointment was at 2:00 waited for about hour to see the dr then another 15 minutes till he cam in
Dr. Fowler listened well and responded to the point(s). Amazed and impressed at his helpfulness and focus. His summary - into the mike extempore - would have taken me hours to prep and revise. Thank you!

Dr. Fowler and Celeste (his assistant) are always very nice and understanding in answering our questions.
I am very happy with my diagnosis, surgery and aftercare. I make a point when asked about the surgery how pleased I am that Dr. Fowler is my doctor of choice. He gave me straight legs - and I really do get comments about them!!!
Dr Fowler is the BEST Dr I have been seeing for problems for the last 10 years +
They are all great..!!
my family and myself have used the services of Dr. Fowler/Rogal inthe pat and were very satisfied with his work and treatment of those involved with his services. I came in for treatment on my knee and probably expected an injection. Never having an injection or cortisone to the knee, I did not know what to expect. all I could think of was that long steel needle being "thrusted into my knee, oh my, the pain I would have experienced. The truth, I never felt any pain at all. In fact. didn't realize he had already given the shot. Now that is a good sign of a good doctor!! He talked to me the whole time, so my attention was on him not my knee/needle. The next thing I realized he said I was done. I asked when he was going to do the shot and he, very nicely said, "it's already been given". I never felt the injection. This is what I had feared and it turned out to be nothing!!!
On time, explained problem, stated options, and very pleasant.
I've been seeing Dr Fowler for almost twenty five years. He has always given me the best care and recommendations possible.
He is A #1 - he listens to your issues and offers your options - he is open to any and all questions that I "thow" at him.
Very personable physician. Open with pros and cons of treatment options.
We love Dr. Fowler! He is professional, knowledgeable, personable and caring. Great doctor!
Dr Fowler is a fantastic doctor that has treated me and my family for many issues over many years. Have always been treated with great care, communication, with knowledge and compassion. Nothing but good things to say about him.
