I like Dr. Rowland so much that I recommended him to my oldest daughter when she was expecting her first child. She subsequently selected him as her pediatrician.
We just love Dr. Rowland and all the staff at his practice. We usually see the same nurses. And have since we have been taking our children to his office since their birth. I think it says a lot about all the Drs at his practice.
WE LOVE DR ROWLAND! I can't say it enough. He has been the primary pediatrician for both my children for 15 years and we wouldn't have it any other way. he is very knowledgeable, caring, and genuine. He takes his time to answer any questions you may have and I completely trust and respect his professional opinion. He also takes time to check in with me, which as a single mother I think is just lovely. God willing he'll be active in this practice for at least another...nine years to get my youngest to adulthood!
Dr. Rowland is always awesome! Genuine, caring and makes both me and my kids feel comfortable.
Didn't have to wait, fast service.friendly office, good experience.
dr. Rowland is the absolutely best !
Office staff is amazing! Best run office that I have ever been to!
Dr. Rowland is always courteous and he treats our son very respectfully. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a pediatrician!
I have been using Dr. Rowland for nearly 22 years and feel blessed to have had him for all three of my children. He is kind, patient, thorough, knowledgeable and I can't say enough good things about him.
Dr. Rowland is the wonderful!
We absolutely LOVE dr Rowland
Dr. Rowland has provided exceptional healthcare to my twin sons since their birth. He handles adolescents as wonderfully as he does babies. I never feel he is rushing and he truly listens to each child. Dr. Roland shows young people respect and because of this they feel as though they can be honest with him.
Dr. Rowland is an excellent, caring pediatrician that communicates great with my 3 children as well as us, as parents!
Dr. Rowland is amazing, caring and knowledgeable. Dr. Rowland has been both of our children's doctor since they were born and every experience has been wonderful.
Very good doctor!
Dr Rowland and staff were once again outstanding. Always have been. my kids have been seeing him for 15 and 16 years. pleasant thorough, respectful, considerate and always available to answer our questions.
I liked that the provider took his time and I felt like I could ask all my questions. I had one issue with my daughter and the provider helped, but after being home a few days, I wish I had asked more questions about the issue. this is more my fault than providers, but more information on the issue would've been helpful.
Sorry that I will be leaving Dr. Rowlands care. He is THE BEST. Everyone should have a doctor as friendly and concerned as Dr. Rowland
Dr Rowland is a wonderful doctor and human being. He always talks to my daughter with respect and concern and makes us both comfortable. I have never had a more positive experience with another doctor. I don't know what we'll do when my daughter outgrows him.
We have only had extremely positive experiences with Dr. Rowland!
we love Dr Rowland and recommend him to everyone.
he knew exactly what was wrong with her; she had surgery at Children's the next day and is doing great. Thank you, Dr Rowland!!
everything was great. The doctor was attentive and clear and the receptionists were very nice. there is great availability. however I wish there was a separate waiting room for healthy and sick kids. I have a newborn and worry about germs so would be nice to have that option.
Dr Rowland always takes his time with Nolan and we never feel rushed!
Dr Paul Rowland was very professional and friendly.
Dr. Rowland is an outstanding and superb pediatrician! He is very kind and professional.

Dr. Rowan has been seeing our children since they were born. He is the most warm kind ,compassionate, knowledgeable Pediatrician around. I love how he talks to my kids and shows genuine concern about their well-being. We would recommend him to anyone.
love Dr. Rowland. we have been with him for 18 years and wouldn't have it any other way.
Dr.Rowland is wonderful. I first met him at west penn hospital when he cleared mydaughter for discharge- we originally planned to see another physician in the practice but when we met him we switched. He has always been beyond thorough and the best at addressing any concerns we have. we can not imagine a better pediatrician for our children.
warm hellos. asks about sports/ summer fun /exercise...cares about a1c and how things are going for son . is type 1 diabetic..always nice to see attentive and patient. always great to see him
We have been with this practice for over 20 years. I have no complaints about any of the doctors, nurses or receptionists.
We love Dr Rowland and have recommended him to friends when they are looking for a new Dr. My kids look forward to seeing and talking to him. The appointment is never rushed and all of my many questions always get answered.

dr. Rowland has always been amazing he always listens to and alleviates any concerns we may have as first time parents and always makes us feel like we are doing a great job with our child's health
Dr. Rowland always takes the time to address any questions/concerns about my child's health. He is a kind, thoughtful, and thorough physican. I am always happy to refer new patients to him.
Dr. Rowland is the best, he is always a joy to see and makes my daughter feel happy and comfortable at her visits.
I brought my child to doctor Roland to have stitches removed too. The type of stitches and depth of healing cause the doctor to tell me I needed to take him back to the children's hospital for topical anesthetic. I appreciated dr. Rowland's limitations and his recommendations. I feel like he made the best decisions for the care of my child.
We enjoyed meeting Dr. Rowland. He took time to get to know my daughter on paper, and in person. Her medical records are quite extensive and didn't transfer well in the system, so he read my summary and asked questions. She's had many doctors and surgery, and can be very fearful/resistant. We both appreciated his bedside manner. We LOVED our family doctor who retired, so it's going to be hard to see someone else. Excellent start!
Dr Rowland is always professional and courteous. He shows a genuine interest in my child and our family and provides a relaxed and open atmosphere that encourages questions and open discussion. I cannot be more happy with our provider!

I can't say it enough-- DR. ROWLAND IS AMAZING! He was the first doctor my daughter saw in the practice and has been her primary care pediatrician since she was 6 months old (?).
