" I found the entire staff at Georgia Bone & Joint, from the front desk all the way through to physical therapy, to be very warm, friendly, and attentive.

" I was absolutely impressed with the skill of Dr. Powell, and his surgical skill. After discharge from the hospital, I developed a slight infection. When I called the office, I got immediate response and Dr. Powell summoned an ambulance to the office to carry me to the E.R. for possible blood clot problems. Dr. Powell followed up with constant contact with the E.R., and with my care. I was totally impressed with his caring professionalism. Georgia Bone and Joint has given me immediate and professional care. I couldn't be happier with the overall experience. From Julie and Sheila, to P.A. Rusty to Doctor Powell. I would recommend them to anyone. " - Steven H.
