Dr. Kassab and his entire staff are caring compassionate, knowledgeable medical professionals. I was very nervous prior to my knee replacement surgery, but Dr. Kassab calmed all my fears. The surgery went well and I did my physical therapy at the location affiliated with his practice. The therapists were wonderful too. I was walking unaided within 3 weeks. I had many questions post surgery and Dr. Kassab answered them before I could even ask. I would not go anywhere else.

Mid-2021 I had a high speed accident causing significant fractures in my foot and ankle. Thanks to the excellent surgical repair by Dr. Howard, great post-operative support by the doctor and his staff plus physiotherapy sessions I'm now 90% recovered. I expect to be 100% recovered by spring 2022.

Dr. Ward did a right hip replacement surgery for me last December. I am so happy with the result. The whole experience from the outpatient surgery at St. Joe's in Pontiac to the in home physical therapy went like clockwork. I could not be more pleased with the outcome. I got really good care all the way through.

I Had bad arthritis in my ankle with lots of pain when walking. Dr Howard tried several different modalities to help with the pain. I ended up needing ankle surgery to fuse a joint. Recovery was long, but I am walking pain free now. The office was friendly and ran very smoothly. I would highly recommend him for any foot/ankle problem you have.

My experience with Dr. Ward and his staff could not have been better. Each time I visited the office, the front office staff welcomed me and took the time to answer any informational and insurance-related questions prior to my meeting with Dr. Ward. I was seen promptly and once in the examination room, my wait was no more than five minutes. This was each and every time. Dr. Ward took the time to explain my injury and even went so far as to show me my MRI results. He pointed to the damaged areas and described how he could repair them and gave me a timeline for my healing process. His surgical coordinator, Kylie, set everything up with the surgery center perfectly. On the day of surgery, Dr. Ward talked with me, verifying exactly what he would be doing, setting me at ease. He talked with the nursing and anesthesiology staff, making sure they were all on the same page. Afterwards, I had little discomfort and my knee is back to being stable pain-free thanks to Dr. Ward.

Dr Howard recommened various ways to minimize the pain and discomfort in my feet. Following these suggestions have been very helpful, Unlike previous meetings with other physicians, Dr H felt surgery would only be a "last resort".

8 months after surgery on my Achilles tendon to repair damage I was able to golf 18 holes for the first time in over 2 years without pain. From surgery through physical therapy Dr. Howard and his staff were excellent in the entire process.

Dr.Robert Howard is extremely personable, very patient oriented and a true professional. He takes time to explain medical issues so that the patient clearly understands the problem. He evaluates the problem and offers an effective treatment plan. He is not one who rushes to surgery unless there is no other alternative. In my personal experience I have a great deal of confidence in Dr. Howard’s medical expertise and recommendations. I highly recommend him to those who require expertise in his particular specialization and skill set.

Dr. Howard recently performed a Bunionectomy on my right foot and I would highly recommend him to anyone searching for an expert in this field. Dr. Howard and his Staff were all professional, courteous and prompt and guided me through this experience flawlessly. I am more than pleased with the results and I am most grateful that my pain has disappeared. Thanks to Dr. Howard and his dedicated Staff.

I had a full left knee replacement in late January, 2021 - outpatient basis. The 6" pencil- thin scar has completely healed, and I am on my way to full knee mobility. Dr. Ward and his staff were excellent in describing the procedure, what to expect, and follow-up exams. The staff arranged for two weeks of in-home treatment following surgery, and 3 weeks of outpatient physical therapy. Dr. Ward is a very skillful surgeon and I highly recommend him. He is very down to earth and demonstrates great confidence.

Dr. Ward is an excellent orthopedic surgeon choice if you have hip pain that requires evaluation and potential replacement. Dr. Ward thoughtfully explained my condition and options without pressuring me to take immediate action. He took time to understand my unique concerns and risks. After my decision to pursue surgery, he and his team made sure I was properly informed and prepared. At the hospital, Dr. Ward exhibited calm confidence. I felt he was most comfortable in that arena, which allowed me to feel the same way entering the operating room and throughout my recovery. I couldn’t be happier with the level of care I’ve received throughout the entire process and will be trusting Dr. Ward with any further orthopedic needs that arise.

I went to Dr. Howard in April 2020, with right ankle pain. I had previously seen two other orthopedists for this same complaint and both had recommended surgery. Dr. Howard recommended cortisone injections, which helped relieve the pain but only for a limited amount of time. In October 2020, I underwent surgery and while progress seemed slow at times, due to being non-weight bearing and the use of assistive walking devices--It is now January2021, and with ongoing physical therapy and excellent surgical results, I am now walking again without any assistive devices. I would highly recommended Dr. Howard.

I had a total knee replacement in September 2019. A year and a half out I’m still happy with the results. Dr Ward is very approachable, tells it like it is, and has a good “bedside manner” along with being obviously good at what he does. I used the St Joe at home physical therapy and then went to the ATI rehab facility in Dr Wards building. Between Dr Ward and the therapists, rehab was a lot of work but also a breeze and was off the walker after 3 days.
