Verified Patient Reviews
Initial visit... excellent doctor... took time to listen, explained in detail what conditions I need to take care of, reviewed past history, identified issues. Office was courteous and professional.
Dr. Rowlands is very thorough and did not rush through the appointment. Excellent listening skills -- makes assessment using his expert knowledge AND based on the patient's current complaints / medical issues.
Nice visit. He listened to and answered my questions. Thankyou.
really like the doctor but this office always has a long wait, even WITH an appointment
Dr. Rowlands listened to all of my questions & replied with excellent detailed answers. VERY professional staff!!
I waited almost 1 hour with no explanation for the long delay. Dr. Rowlands is very professional and listens to you.
Very worthwhile and friendly visit!
Very professional and knowledgeable . Happy to make him my primary doctor.
It went well. He really listens.
Second visit with Dr. Rowlands. Needed to wait close to 30 min. than my scheduled appointment. It is more important to have a doctor willing to take the time to explain diagnosis with their patient, and answer any questions they may have. I feel I am getting the proper care expected from Dr. Rowlands.
Dr. Rowlands carefully looked at my previous lab reports which had been prescribed by a different doctor. He then prescribed new blood work to be done, but only those that were necessary given my current condition. He told me about LabCorp which he said is the cheapest place he knew about for lab services since I was paying out of pocket. He didn't rush in examining, asking questions or being asked questions. As a new patient, I got a good first impression of Dr. Rowlands.
Had to wait in the little waiting room about 45 minutes - felt like telling to go to h- - - and walking out.
My visit to this office (Jackson) was great. I only waited about 10 minutes and was professionally and warmly treated by all staff. Dr. Rowlands takes the time needed to understand my issues and I did not feel rushed with him. He made sure I understood the treatment plan and medicines. I would definitely recommend him and his staff.
Dr. Rowlands was very thorough. I have a cough for over 5 weeks. He ordered a chest xray (which I was able to have right after appt). Called in my prescriptions and hopefully on my way of recovery.

I have been using dr. Roland for many years he's an excellent physician
Dr Rowlands is an excellent dr. Takes his time to explain everything in detail, you never feel rushed.
Dr Rowlands patiently listened to a long history of the illness and was careful to have details clear. He was supportive, gave more suggestions for treatment/care, and gave easy to understand information about the illness and the medications. it was great not to have a debate about our preference to try homemade chicken soup, peppermint, tea with honey and lemon, or ice packs instead of rushing to strong drugs even though it was made clear some pharmaceuticals were now needed. The time with him was not rushed, was instructional, and comforting. What more can one ask?
Dr. Rowlands is very professional. He asks many questions and he really cares how you feel. He also makes sure to answer any questions you may have.

I was able to get a same day appointment. It was very convenient.
Amazing doctor. Cannot say enough about him and the care he shows his patients.
Dr. Rowlands never made me feel rushed or that any concern I had was too trivial. He took the time to explain the logic behind my concerns as well as told me what to expect as I healed. He accommodated my limited accessibility and even drew my blood himself when the technician had left for the day. I feel comfortable discussing my care with him and I will highly recommend him to my family members.
Dr. Rowlands is such a terrific Dr. He always has time to talk to me about any medical issues that I have. He wonderful, bright and I have all great things to say about him.
this was my first visit as a new patient. I was very satisfied with the doctor and staff that I met along the way. Front desk reception, assistant that took my vitals and nurse Maria who took my history! Exceptional!
The office staff as well as Dr. Rowlands were all great! I am so happy I switched my PCP. My husband has been going to Dr. Rowlands for many years and is beyond thrilled with him.

Dr Rowlands is always professional and patient. He takes his time to explain and gives options to treatment.
Very personable and patient in listening to all my concerns. Answers all my questions fully and I never feel rushed.
Excellent, as usual. Thanks, Dr. Rowlands!
Dr Rowlands not only listened patiently to what I was describing, and carefully examined me. Then he explained the details of what he found and what the indicated medical possibilities were. To hear the logic along with empirical factors gave me confidence in the diagnosis. Better yet, Dr Rowlands offered a range of options for more than prescription drugs alone. It was refreshing to hear of levels of management, expectations, and not to rely on pain killers. I feel educated and empowered! I wish this were the standard for all doctors!
Dr. Rowlands was very good,he explained things to me ,so I was able to understand.I highly recommend him.waiting time was next to nothing.
Dr. Rowland's was very compassionate and pleasant! First time seeing him and I would highly recommend him. Very thorough exam and answered any questions I had ! Very pleased.
Very nice doctor !
My visit with Dr Rowlands was good. He took the time to talk to me, spent some time typing on the computer, worked with a nurse practitioner and discussed his comments with professionalism. He got my paperwork for me and sent my prescription to the pharmacy.
He was very thorough!
Office staff was very friendly and professional. Short wait time. Good bedside manner.
Very professional and listened to all my issues.
First visit seemed well organized. I dislike having an app't time and then having to wait 30 minut
Spent a lot of time with me, explained everything thoroughly. Nice bedside manner
Good as always
This was my first visit and it was great. I know I'm in good hands.
my wait time was not more than 2 hours but if i could give negative stars i would. i had a scheduled appointment at 3:30 pm today (not a walk in) - i arrived at 3:20 pm, and did not see the first nurse to take weight, BP and temp at 4:45pm, doctor at approx 5:00pm. i was told by the staff ( only when i asked ) that there were 'some emergencies' that backed him up, which i completely understand, however when i expressed the delay to Dr Rowland's he indicated he had seen walk in's during the time i was waiting, this is it a complete breakdown in scheduling. Dr Rowland's is great and i would highly recommend him, however the scheduling and delays are unacceptable
I found Dr. Rowland's a few years ago on a whim after feeling unhappy with my previous doctor. I feel comfortable speaking with him for any medical advice or referrals. He is always honest and recommends the appropriate remedies. If you are looking for someone who is a doctor and acts like a human you can actually talk to, I recommend Dr. Rowland's highly for central NJ. Thanks!

When we lost our doctor of over 10 years, we were worried we would not find another doctor with the same caring concerned manner and then we met Dr. Rowlands. Very thorough, never feel rushed and explains all meds and conditions.
I have been seeing Dr. Rowland now for 2 years and every time he conducted himself in a manner that I feel comfortable with as a patient.

Great visit. The receptionist at the front desk, Carline, is outstanding. Very caring.
Excellent dr. Took the time to talk with me.
I have been going through a rough time lately and have to see Doctor Rowlands weekly. The minute i enter the office i feel better. He has been handling my problems with real care and I thank god I found him. I am so comfortable that I have him as my primary care physician. I honestly don't know where I'd be if I wasn't under his care. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a doctor. He's the greatest and that's coming from someone who doesn't easily trust doctors. Yet he has my complete trust and confidence and I am a very lucky patient
