Professionalism at its best!
I am, firstly, overwhelming happy that I met Dr Rowlands, Dr Eskander and their right hand team members. I have had two surgeries done with this team. One was a disc replacement in my neck that exceeded expectations. The other is a lumbar fuse I’m currently in recovery for. All I can say is, after having many prior surgeries, and being under the care of various other doctors and practices, you really never know what a good practice looks like until you are a patient under DOS. DOS should be the pure definition and model of what a medical practice should be for the rest of the medical field. I will NEVER put my body or life in the hands of any other practice out there. It’s not because their staff is always friendly, not because of the cleanliness of the entire area, not because I never have to wait beyond my appointment time, not because the staff makes sure you as a patient understands what’s going on, but it’s because of their wealth of knowledge and their ability to get the job done right the first time so I can resume the life I was destined to have with my family. I cannot thank DOS & especially Dr Eskander’s team enough.
