Patient Comments (3)
in Saraland, AL |
Extremely knowledgeable and informative to me as a patient. I've had problems with my back for years and Dr. Howard correctly diagnosed what turned out to be a complex case. His recommendations for surgery were not only based on immediate need; he also addressed potential long- term problems as well. In doing this, he has probably saved me from additional painful surgeries and recovery down-time in the future. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Howard to someone seeking spinal care.
in Mobile, AL |
Was thorough with explanations of what was wrong and what needed to be done to prevent surgery. He was easy to talk to and he listened.
Mobile, AL |
He is arrogant, no regard for patient's time. Having had words I felt that he really did not put forth much effort. Won't recommend him or see him again.
