  • Sports medicine

Dr. Harrell offers a wide range of treatment options – from conservative to surgical – to make sure you are comfortable with your care while experiencing the best outcomes.

Compassionate Care

Dr. Harrell shares a compassion and understanding with his patients that comes from his own personal experience. After being born with a left clubfoot, he had it conservatively and surgically treated while an infant.

“As I grew up, I also sought treatment from an orthopedic surgeon for knee pain. It was through both experiences and continual positive outcomes that made me want to help others, particularly with their feet,” he says.

In fact, Dr. Harrell had such positive outcomes that he was able to play collegiate basketball at Presentation College.

Active Lifestyle

In his free time, Dr. Harrell enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, being outdoors, watching movies and playing sports, especially basketball, football, tennis and golf.

Very compassionate DR.

While the Doctor sometimes spoke in "medical terms", he would then go on to explain what he was talking about in "shirt-sleeve" English I could understand. Was very easy to talk with. Enjoyed the experience.

Dr. Harrell was wonderful! Extremely invested in my issue. He made sure everything was covered and that we had a plan. He took the extra time to study up on my past visits so that he was prepared. I loved seeing him! I wish all of the Dr s were like him!!

Dr. Harrell showed genuine concern for my condition throughout the entire visit. It was evident that he not only wanted to get me the assistance I needed to help me feel better, but also cared about what I was going through. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.

Waited for 45 minutes in the room before being seen by the doctor. That was quite frustrating.

Efficiently run clinic, knowledgeable and caring doctors, nurses and staff.

I would appreciated it that when the physician kept you waiting for 15-20 minutes, the least , she/he can say sorry for being late or thank you for your patience and not just tell me that I had a phone call and it took longer than I expected. My time is valuable too! Thank you!!
