Dr Howard's is too focused on excessive tests and dragging in patients for paid appointments that could readily be handled in a 3 minute phone call

I have been seeing Dr. Howard for almost three years. She is caring, thorough, and exceptionally knowledgeable. I have seen many doctors in my 76 years, and she is among the best. I could not recommend her more highly.

I had the same ordeal with Dr. Howard couple years ago. Very dismissive of you symptoms but will ALWAYS order a colonoscopy. She's arrogant and misinformed. I said I think i have bacterial overgrowth in my small intestine(SIBO). She told me bacterial overgrowth in my digestive systems means I have HIV! After the colonoscopy she just said your colon is fine and sent me on my way. I would not recommend her.

Absolutely a professional dedicated and caring. We have been seeing Dr Hoesrd for perhaps 15 years. She is very thorough and ensures that all the bases are covered when it come to any issues. I would recommend her highly she’s a top doctor for sure!!!

I am not sure about all of the positive reviews on here--which is why I initially chose to go to this doctor (despite having to wait 2 months for an appointment). I welcome directness in an MD, but she was dismissive and brash. There was no semblance of bedside manner. On a positive note, the rest of the staff was very friendly.

My entire experience with Capital Digestive Care and Dr. Howard specifically has been poor to this point. From numerous attempts to schedule an initial appointment to planning for an upcoming colonoscopy, everyone I have encountered has been extremely unhelpful. Dr. Howard was late for my appointment and dismissive of my symptoms but ultimately decided that I need a colonoscopy anyway. If I didn't have to pay the $150 cancellation fee, I would cancel it.

I can not say enough good things about Dr. Howard and her staff. I have had two colonoscopies over the years and Dr. Howard and her staff manage to make an experience which could be embarrassing and scary, completely safe, pain free and private. The facilities are super clean and comfortable and everyone is so kind. Pre-procedure and post visits are easy to schedule. Her office staff is very efficient and I have never had to wait for more than 15 minutes for my appointment.

I don't know. She yelled at me during the appointment because I went to take notes on my phone. It seems she thought I was going to look up the condition she was suggesting, so she said something like, I'm the doctor, I'll tell you what you have, put that away. It just all seemed super rushed, defensive, and unnecessarily combative... sigh... but she did recommend me to a truly awesome colorectal specialist, so I guess it was a win.

When I was first referred to Dr Howard, it was 2 MONTHS before I could get an appointment. Then they called two weeks before this long-awaited appointment to tell me the doctor would not be available that day. Did they try to accommodate me at all? NO - The next appointment was 2 months later. 4 MONTHS for an appointment?? Seriously? Who does this doctor think she is? God? She has no business accepting new patients. Run away now and find someone else before you waste any of your time with her.

Dr. Howard is exceptionally personally; engaging and sensitive in conveying medical information as well as very professional After a recent procedure, I was impressed with Dr. Howard's decision to share information personally rather than over the telephone. That decision spoke well of this doctor well as the level of genuine concern and guidance given. Dr. Howard came recommended and I am not at all disappointed and would definitely recommend her services.

I had my first colonoscopy with Dr. Howard soon after my father died in a routine medical procedure. I was anxious about the procedure and Dr. Howard was incredibly patient and kind and put me at ease. In addition to having excellent patient communication skills (something critical I think for a doctor who is dealing with nervous patients like myself) she is very professional, personal, and competent. My husband needed colonoscopy this year so he went to her - she and her team are wonderful
