Dr.Howard did my double mastectomy. From the moment I became his patient he began to inform me and guide me on this sudden life changing journey. He spent 1.5 hours with me staying past office hours explaining my results and what I had in front of me. Every doctor I saw from Siteman Cancer Center...more

Dr. Howard was fantastic!! From the moment he stepped foot in my hospital room to discuss the surgery until the very end when he discharged me from the hospital. He was very clear as to what I could expect from the surgery and the days ahead of me. I would highly recommend Dr. Howard to anyone...more
