    Dr. Howard was fantastic!! From the moment he stepped foot in my hospital room to discuss the surgery until the very end when he discharged me from the hospital. He was very clear as to what I could expect from the surgery and the days ahead of me. I would highly recommend Dr. Howard to anyone in need of a surgical procedure. THE BEST in my personal opinion.
