I had extensive surgery on my left foot and leg on December 22, 2016 I had a torn tendon in the front of my foot/ankle. Of course this is quite rare. They had to make multiple incisions. Its been over a month and I am still in a cast. Believe it or not I have not had one pain. I think so far Dr. Howell walks on water.

Dr. Howell performed foot surgery on my daughter and she had wonderful results. He was kind and caring and he always had time for questions. His staff was also very good.

Dr. Steven Howell is the best orthopedic surgeon for lower leg and foot. I had a major fall and he reconstructed everything and I just want to highly recommend him to anyone that is needing this type of surgery. His bed side manners are top of the line. He explains everything so the dumbest person can understand. He is TOP OF THE LINE. His PA's are also top of the line and they get a workout. Wayne Wilson
Waited an hour in the waiting room and then another hour in exam room, Doctor came in looked at X-rays, but not MRI we had brought, didn't ask questions left and came back handed a script for a $2000 brace. Very little communication and still no answers for what's wrong with my foot. Total waste of my time!
