Patient Comments (2)

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.
