I Returned to the good doctor for a minor issue. Certainly knew who to return to. Several years ago this excellent podiatrist totally corrected my horrible hammer toes by his awesome surgical ability. He is a meticulous surgeon who take excellent care of his patients. His bedside manner leaves no doubt that he wants the very best for his patients. Thank you Brent Harwood.

Dr. Brent Harwood is an excellent podiatrist. He did my surgery, removal of a foot deforming bunion on June 19, 2019. I had my final post op visit today and I’m cleared for all activities. I am 74 years old and I’m grateful for the care I received.

Dr Harwood is a good doctor, BUT his ego is bigger than his skills. I had him do a Mortons neuroma surgery, he never listened to me or my concerns as if he's been there done it. His staff is slow and unorganized and skilled always has turnover and his staff don't seem happy. Was told by a staff member " he's a pain to work for". Owes me 100$ from a insurance claim waiting for Dr Harwood to OK the billing code..it's been 6+ months and he still hasn't...pretty bad when 100$ means more to them than it does me..a class on how to be nice to patients would be great..he showed up 2 1/2 hours late to surgery and not a " sorry or anything..doesn't care about patients time..PLEASE find someone else you'll thank me..

Subsequent to receiving a “podietry referral” I’m currently being treated by Dr. Brent Harwood and Dr. Laura Wimmer @ Southeast Podietry located in Fairhope, AL. With traffic delays, travel time to this clinic is about 10-15 minutes from my home. Other podietry clinics are located just down the street. However, I truly appreciate the professionalism And quality of care rendered by Dr. Harwood, Dr. Wimmer and their staff. !! EXEMPLARY !!

Dr. Harwood is one of the most conscientious and thorough doctors I have ever been to. He found and successfully treated problems no one else had been able to find. His thorough work ups discovered another problem unrelated to my feet that I didn't even know I had. His early discovery allowed me to get treatment in time to prevent any complications. In addition, his entire staff is courteous, friendly, and well trained. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

I would highly recommend Dr. Brent Harwood to anyone. He is an excellent surgeon. I haven't had any pain after surgery ,but I had suffered for years before. He tried other options before surgery but unfortunately they didn't work. I appreciated the fact that he didn't just rush in to operate. I had surgery almost 3 months ago and I can actually work all day on my feet now without pain. I am very satisfied !

My daughter had a large mass removed from her foot and Dr. Harwood and his staff, in the Brewton office, were fantastic during our pre-surgery and post-surgery appts. We have received the highest quality of respect and care from them all and would most definitely recommend them to anyone, and we will be using them if needed in the future. Dr. Harwood was thorough and to the point. He is up front about being serious about his patients and their care. While he is firm about what he requires of his

Dr. Harwood is without any doubt the very best in his field that you will quickly come to know during your interaction with him or his staff ! Honestly its almost like going back in time as far as the way a Doc and patient interaction should be !! His #1 priority is the patient !! PERIOD. The attention to detail that he and his staff operate by is UNSURPASSED. He repaired my bilateral achilles rupture like a PRO Look no further than HARWOOD !!!

I went to Dr. Harwood for a wart under my right middle toe. He immediately cut it out and treated it with a strong acid-like solution. He knew exactly what was causing my pain, and how to treat it. After 3 months it was totally gone and I've not had a problem since. His knowledge was far superior to the other 2 foot doctors I had used with no results. He was recommended to me by my primary physician and I would highly recommend him to anyone with a foot problem.

Dr. Brent M. Harwood has done a fantastic job of correcting our 15-year old daughter’s foot problem. He let us know what to expect for the surgery and how to prepare for post-surgery recovery at home. His staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. Our daughter felt very little pain after the surgery and found no need for the prescribed pain pills. Thank you, Dr. Harwood and staff! Your care and attention to detail has made this a successful surgery and speedy recovery.

Dr. Harwood has been treating me for years. He came highly recommended by my daughter when I was looking for a doctor to treat my plantar fasciitis. Since then, he has corrected a pressure ulcer, fungal problems, wart, callouses, and hammer toes. Dr. Harwood is very professional and strait forward and I really feel that he cares for me as a problematic, neuropathic patient. I already have recommended him to others and will continue to do so.
