Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

dr. howarth is almost non available for family of those in the assisted living places he covers. Doesn't return calls, I never get a copy of her tests. Just medicate, 1 conflicts with her digestive issues but never addressed. He's either got too many patients or covers too many places.

Dr Howarth is overbooked, overworked and very inattentive to the serious needs of his patients. I brought my 80 year old mother to him when she started showing signs of dimentia. He sent her for a cat scan which confirmed same. He then told her to return in 6 months. I called again as I noticed her deteriorating. He again met with her briefly in the office and rescheduled her for another 6 mos. No meds, cognitive therapy, nothing. Nurses never answer the phone or call you back. Horrible place!

Dr. Howarth is the best. He is very thorough and caring individual. On 2 occasions, he noticed some early abnormalities with my blood work and recommended and referred me to appropriate specialists. They were able to catch issues in the early stages. He's the best.
