I am pleased. I was very nervous since this was my first Pap smear. She put me at ease, was gentle and friendly. She listened to my concerns and was informative. I’ll definitely keep her as my regular OB-GYN.

I highly recommend Dr. Rowen! She made me feel comfortable from the moment she introduced herself. She was thorough when reading the information I listed on the chart, and asked follow-ups where necessary. When I requested contraceptive meds,she gave me recommendations that would be easy to keep track of (I'm not the most disciplined medicine taker), but respected my final decision. Finally, the exam (annual Pap) was quick and seamless.

The visit was the doctor was fine, but the receptionist with the long hair was extremely rude. Myself and another patient there were surprised by the way we were treated. She rushed me out the office, she wouldn’t help me findinga near by pharmacy and didn’t say hello or goodbye. I have to say, it’s not that hard to welcome someone into a doctors office.

Dr. Rowen was really good and very pleasant/nice. Did not feel uncomfortable with her even though is was my first time seeing her and getting an annual done. However, the wait time was horrendous. It could have been caused by earlierpatients being late, but i waited nearly an hour to be taken into the exam room and then waited some more. Dr. Rowen was really nice and kind of calm my nerves as I was really anxious of going back to work later than expected.

Dr. Rowen was patient, clear and straight forward. She also listened to my concerns and did not feel rushed at all. The wait time was not perfect but it wasn't tedious either (about 40-60 mins). I've waited way longer at otheroffices and she's worth the wait. I recommended her to a friend and will recommend again.

Dr. Rowen was great. Very knowledgeable and I didn’t feel rushed through the appointment. That said, Dr. Rowen and the nurse who treated me were the only redeeming factor for me in her practice. A few weeks before my appointment herstaff changed the time of my appointment through Zocdoc without asking me if the time change worked. Then, when I arrived they weren’t sure if they could take my insurance for which I provided the information over Zocdoc. My insurance isn’t great so I specifically picked Dr. Rowen because it said she took my insurance on Zocdoc. They tried to blame me for not calling with my policy number but I was never instructed to do so and as far as I’m concerned, it was all set with Zocdoc. They don’t transfer any of the information that you’ve already painstakingly completed through zocdoc so you’re asked the fill out 8 pages of paperwork when you first arrive as a new patient. I will continue to see Dr. Rowen but the front of the house really needs to reconsider their policies and procedures.

Dr. Rowen seemed to be in rush during my appointment. It seemed that she didn't want me to finish my sentence and only wanted to give me short answers. Quite dismissive. Very slow response. Dr. Rowen said that she or theoffice would call within 2-3days about my lab results. It's been 5 days - no response at all. I tried to call the office on the 5th day, couldn't get through and kept being transferred and put on hold by the receptionist. I left a voicemail, still no responses. The staff members do have an attitude problem just like some reviewers said.

In Dr. Rowen's defense, there wasn't really much to diagnose. I went in for some mild cramps and a suspicion that I was pregnant. While she did the urine test, it's just too early to tell. She still listened to medescribe my other symptoms and recommended some OTC treatments. She's really pleasant and non-judgmental.
