    i am extremely lucky to have Milo Sewards as my doctor. He listens to me. He hears what I have to say and he finds the answer if he is unfamiliar with the problem. he refers me to the best providers possible if my problem is not something he specializes in. I am so happy he's my doc and came home safely from his military service

    I gave recommended Dr. Sewards at least 2 dozen times, maybe more. He is an amazing surgeon with a heart of gold.

    Dr. Sewards is one of the best physicians that Temple has. He is an exceptional human being, compassionate and caring, and he is one of the best orthopods in the country. He is truly the epitome of what a physician and surgeon should be.
