I am a "new" patient, and was seen by Dr. Fowler & his PA. They both made me feel welcomed, and were interested in my complaints regarding my right knee. X-rays were taken, and honest feedback by the doctor was given. He explained the x-rays in the photos to me completely. I am making an appointment for a follow-up. I felt comfortable about the treatment described and any necessary evasive treatment that may/may not follow.

Dr. Fowler was great when treating my husband for an arm issue so when I fractured my humerus bone I knew he was the Doctor to consult. He's a wonderful physician who explains issues clearly and describes all the options clearly. He welcomes questions and encourages them. I highly recommend him for anyone who needs an orthopedic doctor regardless of your age or condition. Now I am six weeks post injury and although not 100% healed yet, feeling really good and confident that I will be back to normal in the near future.

Tore my ACL in October of 2018. I didn’t think it needed anything but after talking with Dr Fowler we agreed I would get an MRI which revealed a torn ACL. I was lucky that was the only thing I tore. He recommended surgery. He was really great before, during, and after surgery. Has a fantastic bedside manor, classic southern gentleman. The surgery went great with minimal scaring. I would definitely recommend Dr Fowler for any orthopedic condition.

Took the time to explain everything in easy to understand language and was willing to sit and answer any questions I had about my upcoming surgery and the rehab to follow. Will not hesitate to go back for any other ortho problems.

Dr Fowler saw me initially for a rotator cuff repair. He performed my surgery 2 weeks ago. The man is a phenomenal doctor as well as orthopedic surgeon. I was hesitant at first since this was a workers comp claim. Dr Fowlers educational and professional credentials eased my concerns immediately. I received the same level of treatment and care that a professional athlete would expect. The staff at the ortho Atlanta Hiram facility was also stellar.

Dr. Fowler is the consummate professional and surgeon. I had to have surgery on my shoulder and from the beginning felt very confident of him in all aspects of the procedure. My care with him and OrthoAtlanta was excellent from beginning to end. Thank you Dr. Fowler!
