Dr Howell was my sons thoracic surgeon for seven years. My son had a chest wall deformity (pectius excavatum)! that' required two surgeries and many years under a doctors care. Dr Howell was always kind, compassionate and caring. He's very talented and wise and it's obvious that he genuinely has your child's best interest at heart. He'll always have a special place in our hearts. We love you Dr Howell! May God reward you!
