Dr. Howse has been our family doctor since just after my son was born almost 17 years ago. When he moved from the southside to the northside, we followed him even though it is now almost an hour to drive to his office. I couldn't imagine having a different doctor. He is knowledgeable, compassionate and personable. I would recommend Dr. Howse to anyone who wants a good doctor. I trust Dr. Howse with my life, but more importantly, with my son's life. He is great!

I have been a patient of his for over 10 years. He is an excellent Doctor and I would trust him completely with my life. He is caring, compassionate and listens to you. He does not order unnecessary tests, but when they are needed he always does. He works hard to heal or make his patients quality of life better. I would recommend him to anyone.
