Dr Fowler put my ankle back together after I crushed it in a tree felling accident 31 years ago. Marvelous job. Now it needs additional attention and I will call him again for further work as I’ve developed intense pain in the old injury. 5 +++ stars.

Dr. Fowler is a wonderful orthopedic surgeon who is caring and so kind to his patients. He treated my husband with respect and excellent care. He replaced my knee and I feel like a teenager again!
