Would not recommend hip surgery from Dr. Howe. After 2+ years of pain, dislocations, falls r/t muscle weakness; I am much worse off than before the surgery.

Would not recommend! Did not listen to my concerns and my condition was worse after his treatment. my questions were never answered, instead I was treated with a condescending attitude, that irritated me. I think he should just retire and play golf. I feel angry that my time, my pain and effort was wasted, VERY ANGRY, it is just MY LIfe. afterall ! I dont think Dr.Howe gives a . You Know

Dr. Howe is SLOW - his recommendation was to wait 6 weeks to see how it does, and then 6 more weeks, and then 6 more weeks...well, we are 7 months of waiting and still can't walk without pain or swelling! The office is TERRIBLE - Howe has ordered 2 braces for us, and said they would be here in two days - well 6 weeks later they called - then we went to pick it up and they couldn't find it! BOO!!! The office is HORRIBLE about returning phone calls! 7 months wasted of my once active life!
