Very professional - took time answering all my questions and was very helpful. Very polite and sincere.

Dr. Howard sees my 90+ year old mother and has been a great match for her needs, both clinically and in his patient care. He is highly knowledgeable, thoughtful and very responsive to her needs. His caring attitude for his patients is evident in every visit, including in the hospital. I would go to him myself if I needed this type of care.
