Dr. Rowan does a great job at answering my questions and looking into the details of complaints. He is caring... bedside manner is good as he takes time and does not hurry the appointment. gave me hope in that I could still conceive even with my diminishing ovarian reserve. He tried multiple things to get me to ovulate through medications...He is thorough at trying to figure a solution to all problems...I had two cycles of medications starting with Letrozole. when I went back for the US to see if it was working he prescribed me another round of medicine right there at a higher dose to try and induce ovulation. this happened for two cycles.
