I'd love to give Dr Howatt top marks but here is my experience. I waited 3 years for a hip replacement. I believe that I was more prepared for the surgery than most having followed the recommendations in the hip book. The surgery went well but the recovery failed. I had physio for 2 years post surgery but now, 3 years post surgery I consider the surgery a failure. Basically I'm a cripple and have to use a cane limiting the way I want to live my life. The “hip book”indicated I would be fully recovered after 3 months. I personally know dozens of people who had a hip replacement and none of them have had my result, all of them recovered and walk without limp or cane assistance.

Dr. Howatt is an excellent surgeon. He is knowledgeable, compassionate, and his sense of humour is appreciated. I have seen him for a variety of knee issues over the years (including two knee replacements) and would highly recommend his services.

Don't be thrown off by his miserable secretary who is probably the only reason he has 4 instead of 5 stars, he is a good and kind doctor. Bunion surgery patient.

Showed up an hour late. His secretary told us that he was late to work! All appointments were delayed. He knows a lot and is a good doc, but I have not been impressed with punctuality or friendliness of him or his staff.

seen Dr. Howatt back in February of 2016 and was not impressed at all. He was 2 1/2 hours late for appointments, I heard him tell the nurse he forgot he had appointments at 8 instead of 10:30. After waiting almost 4 hours total for my appointment, I finally got in to see him. Also took 16 months to get an appointment to see him. I was in there a total of 10 minutes. I was referred to him by my family doctor following a motor vehicle accident. He did nothing but move my foot to each side and said I was fine. I gave him a disc of the MRI I had on my foot and ankle and he wouldn't even look at it. When I received his progress report that was sent to my doctor, I was fuming as he wrote down things he "said" he did but none was done so I told my doctor to NEVER send me to him again...plus I have told everyone I know not to let their doctor send them to him. Hopefully I can find someone to help me with finding answers to my painful situation seeing as no one can tell me and it's going on 3 years since my accident

This is the 6 month anniversary of my toe surgery and I am extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was performed within the time frame Dr. Howatt had predicted at the time of my first consult. I found him open to discussion and questions with a calm and confident manner. I would not hesitate to undergo a future orthopedic surgery by Dr. Howatt. I also found his office assistant amiable and indulgent in the face of my many questions.
