I had a tooth extracted by Dr. Howard. No one asked me to rest before leaving, and I threw up in his parking lot and in the pharmacy, where I also fainted. I had severe side effects including terrible itching, terrible headache and other reactions. When I talked with Dr. Howard he told me that lidocaine does NOT have side effects. In fact, MANY potential side effects are described on the web. He told me it must have anxiety, my smoking or bad teeth. He showed zero sympathy and I felt degraded.

Dr. Howard was one of the most rude people I have dealt with in a very long time. I could not see an care or concern in him. I still cannot help but wonder why anyone would want to get into that line of work and not care about other people. It was just suppose to be a consult, but I felt very discriminated against.
