Very pleased with initial visit to Dr. Howard. He spent time getting my medical history, listening to my current conditions, and involving me in the goals for my health care. I had a GP for 20 years who retired, and Dr. Howard is the first doctor I have seen in 15 years since that put me at ease...Read More

Sat in waiting room for 2.5 hrs finally left. Ask for refund of copay and got it, but no sorry for the wait. People coming in an hour after me going in. It was a joke. This was my first visit not impressed.

Would give a 0. 4+hr waits on office visit. Extremely poor if admitted to hospital, the 1/2 day wait to get discharged. Does not do any examination when in hospital. Poor poor excuse for a doctor. All but let my father die in the hospital from his incompetentlack of treatment.

Dr. Howard really cares about his patients. He takes the time to get to know you and he listens to everything that you say. He visits all of his patients in the local hospital every day. I feel like I'm visiting an old friend every time I walk into the office.
