Dr. Howell started me on pain medicine for 3 years. He continues to push for increasing pain medications when I asked him not to. Then in January he fired me for unknown reasons. I have to go through rehab because I am now hooked on pain pills. I hope that others will learn a lesson.

Extremely rude. Ordered MRI and Urine tests. Spent 5 minutes with me. In and out. Did injections that did not help. Charged hundreds of dollars that went to his pocket. Then fired me when I told him that I was not better. My chiropractor has warned me not to go there. I should have listened.

Do not go to Dr. Howell or his father if you have a work related injury. He will always give you a negative report and works for the employer. He gets paid by them not you. He did injections that did not work and falsely accused me of faking my injury. I had 2 back surgeries after my work injury.
