    My mother use to see Dr. Howard for her pain management. He is the best Doctor he cares about his patients. We found him to be a very gentle and friendly man. We have moved now and we already miss him. I give him 10 stars, because 5 just isn't enough.

    Couldn’t ask for a smarter, more empathetic, sympathetic doctor. I have many doctors, he’s the one that has gotten to the root of the problem. Willing to listen and explain more throughly your issues. Wish I had found him 15 years ago, but the last 3 years he’s made quite an impact on my life. I would recommend him to anyone, especially some of my doctors!,

    I have been a patient of Dr. Howard's for 10 years and I cannot think of adjectives good enough to describe how highly I think of him. Dr. Howard gets to know his patients medically and personally, he asks about how everything in your life is going to make sure you are well all the way around. He is knowledgeable about so many conditions and I often use him for a sounding board when my other doctors prescribe a new treatment or therapy The office staff is friendly, professional and very caring, I think all doctors should be as caring and as thorough as Dr, Howard is!

    Went in for a nerve test due to a brachial plexus injury. I was pretty nervous because I have lost the use of my right hand. Dr. Howard came into the room and immediately began to explain each step of the procedure. I could tell I was in the hands a very competent Dr. and felt confident that the information provided will assist me and my other Dr.'s the best chance of recovering use of my right arm.
