What People Say About Dr. Vincent Fowble, MD

A previous Dr left my leg almost an inch short with a partial hip replacement, making it difficult to walk. Dr Fowble used his considerable skill to remove the cemented stem without cutting and wiring my femur as other highly-regarded Orthopedists thought would be necessary. He eliminated the pain caused by the movement of the head of the prosthesis in my socket and evened my legs with a new total hip. I now walk normally. At 61 and active, I am forever in his debt for his compassion and skill.

Dr. Fowble replaced both my knees 5 years apart. He is straight forward and easy to talk with. However, the real measure of his skill is in the results. Both knee replacements were successful and I have regained full function of both legs with no pain. I've run out of knees, but if I had to have a hip replaced, Dr. Fowble is my surgeon no question!

DR. Fowble was great in handling my case, which another surgeon had avoided. He told me that I was in a delicate category since on dialysis, but gave me all of the facts I needed to have the surgery. I liked his direct and professional manner, before and after the surgery, which was entirely successful.

My husband had bilateral knee replacements this past February and March. I can't say enough about his skill and expertise. He cares for his patients and sees to it that they get excellent care. He's the best in what he does and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a hip or knee replacement. He is known for very difficult cases that other surgeons don't want to even touch.

Dr. Fowble is an excellent doctor; he may not have the best bedside manners, but he is direct. One will have a complete understanding of what to expect. In my opinion, one could not ask for anything different. I have recommended him several times and will continue to recommend him.

I hadn’t a very disappointing experience with Dr Fowble. During our appointment he used profanity, demonstrated grave unprofessionalism, and spoke to us in a very condescending manner. At one point he even told us to “learn some common sense” while we were asking him our medical questions. I would never recommend Dr Fowble to patients looking for quality care.

I would not recommend this doctor! He was very arrogant and gruff. He may be competent but his bedside manner is lacking. Surely there are more compassionate doctors in this area.I was hesitant to write this- thinking that every doctor may have a bad day- However after having spoken to another friend she confirmed my opinions.

I'm so grateful that our doctor friend referred Dr. Fowble for my knee replacement revision! Dr. Fowble is SO knowledgeable, confidant, kind, professional and explains procedures well. My surgery and recovery exceeded my expectations! He is the only doctor to consider for joint issues. Jane and his team are excellent as well!

Dr Fowble is simply the best! I did numerous hours of research looking for an experienced hip resurfacing surgeon. I went to two other hip surgeons prior to Dr Fowble. I'm a very active 56 year old and because of the hip pain I was no longer able to enjoy my favorite activity of kiteboarding. Dr Fowble reassured me I'd be back kiteboarding in a reasonable time as long as I followed his instructions. Surgery went extremely well. Pain after was minimal. Only took Tylenol. Dr Fowble is AWESOME!
