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.

Dr. Aaron Howell is very patient friendly. He listened to me very well and ask appropriate questions in order to help me. He made me feel comfortable while I talked to him. He explained my condition to me very well. He is working with me and he listens to me when we discuss my best options. He is helping me and I appreciate him for his direct honesty and his caring attitude. I am thankful for doctors like him.
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.
