I consider myself fortunate to have Dr. Rowan as my GYN provider.

Could have used more detail about what exactly recovery would entail but really appreciated the depth of explanation and discussion of which options made most sense for me personally.

Although the amount of time that Dr. Rowen spent with me is far more than I have ever experienced from any Kaiser doctor and she was very knowledgeable she gave the impression of going through my appointment haphazardly. She needed to be corrected a few times when taking down my family medical history even though it was on the paper in front of her and gave the impression of not thoroughly reading the intake forms that I had taken the time to complete in detail. The came away with the latter observation because she did not address all of the concerns that I stated on this form including my previous experience at home with interpersonal violence and the potential for this problem to recur in the future. Dr. Rowen furthermore did not spend the full half hour with me. She arrived a few minutes late even though the person with whom I scheduled the appointment informed me that I was the first patient of the day and Dr. Rowen spent just over twenty minutes with me. If my appointment was only supposed to be twenty minutes I understand completely but if not I would have appreciated the extra time mostly because I came to UCSF Mission Bay all the way from the East Bay on public transportation. Dr. Rowen additionally stated that she did not need to view the compact disc of my last ultrasound that I took the time to request from Kaiser; she instead opted to take the word of the Kaiser doctor who stated the results on my chart. Please note that the information I received in the mail prior to the appointment stated that I need to hand this information to the doctor for viewing. Dr. Rowen gives the impression of having the potential to be an excellent gynecologist but I get the impression that she is used to coasting at whatever she does because she is so intelligent and thus things come easily to her. If her supervisor could please speak to her about this concern and hopefully convince her to train herself out of this bad habit I would be very appreciative

I think she is a very kind and considerate doctor. She was respectful towards me and carefully listened to my concerns. However based on my research and seeing similar cases in my family and friends I was hoping that she takes my condition more seriously. My main concern was that even though the condition is not dangerous now we have to be observant and careful to prevent the same thing from happening again. She respectfully explained to me that there is no answer to why it happened and how to prevent it. But I mentioned that I still have pain and not feeling ok. She suggested pain killers and hot pads but I was hoping that she would show concern about the existence of pain rather than just pain management. I understand that she was trying to make me calm but it came across as not being serious about the cause of my condition and not showing effort in preventing it from happening again. I emphasize that she was very nice and respectful and perhaps a great deal of experience made her confident that my condition doesn't need a special attention. But I believe in "better to be safe than sorry" approach and I was hoping to receive that type of approach in my treatment.

I have been referred to 5 different hospitals and Drs. before coming here. I'm so thankful my insurance is accepted here. My appointment was with Dr. Rowen. I again can't be more thankful to have a truly kind and caring doctor.

I waited forever and then the appointment felt rushed.
