Dr Howell was a blessing in disguise. He takes his time explaining his diagnosis and procedure and is very patient answering our questions. We highly recommend him. Surgery was a success and follow up. His staff is very caring and ready to help.

When I walked up to the counter I told them I was a new patient and I probably had 1,000 pages of forms to fill out. They laughed and handed me an iPad. It took less than 10 minutes to answer all of the questions. Super easy. Also, Dr. Howell was very professional. He spent adequate time with me to understand the issue and explained all of my options clearly. This was my first visit, but it went as smoothly as I could have hoped for.

Dr. Howell put a plate and screws in my left wrist after a distal radius fracture, and a couple months later I was back to 100% on long distance mountain biking through Colorado. Very grateful he fixed me up; two and a half years later and the wrist is still perfect!

Dr. Howell treated both of my trigger fingers. Most wonderful doctor I have ever been to. He explained everything in detail and drew diagrams. He is so kind, patient, spent a lot of time with me and was calm and not rushed at all. I'm so satisfied.

Very kind and passionate man who takes time to make sure you completely understand what he is doing.

Cynthia Meyer-Williams in McDonough, GA – Mar 07, 2019


When speaking with Dr. Howell you immediately feel at ease because of his wealth of knowledge and experience. He is very thorough and meticulous and explains in detail the prognosis and surgical procedures. He takes his time to ensure your understanding. I have seen hundreds of doctors throughout my life and can detect a “good” doctor, he is one of the best. The moment I walked into the practice, the front staff, the nurses and assistants were all very professional, courteous and expedient.

Dr. Howell operated on my wrist due to a workers compensation injury sustained while preforming my job as a nurse. I had terrible pain post op that he wouldn't address. End result, Dr Howell left 2 clips on my nerve. This was diagnosed and removed by a different physician and now I feel great. Dr Howell is so far into the workers comp insurance companies pocket that he has lost sight of patient care. I would not recommend seeing him if you were injured at work.
