Talked with Dr Howard and his assistant, reference my issues. After a few minutes of examination, Dr Howard recommended getting a shot to reduce the pain, but didn't recommend any type of surgery. This is the first time having an appointment with Dr Howard and he was to the point and ensured that I understood what the procedure entailed.

Wait was long, but worth waiting for! Dr Howard has a great chair side personality! I immediately relaxed and between him and his assistant I didn’t feel like just another complaining patient. I left with a plan and a goal to strive for.

I’m being selfish, but I hope he never retires or moves out of the area. He’s professional, kind, caring. He automatically has a plan. Dr Adam is exactly like him. Both deserve to be called Royalty in their field!
