      I had both eye lids done. It was so bad that my vision was badly impaired. Dr. Howard did my surgery. I was one of a hand full of patients who had NO bruising at all. My vision is wonderful now. There was NO pain at all He has a wonderful staff. Every thing went very smoothly. I am just thrilled that I can see so much now. Had no idea I was missing so much. My eyes are now open & I'm a very happy person.

      We considered several surgeons before choosing Dr. Howard for my husband's blepharoplasty (eyelid reduction and lift). We chose him because, in addition to being highly recommended, he is a skilled ophthalmic and plastic surgeon with a very reassuring manner. Dr. Howard made sure we understood the treatment, recovery and results, all of which are even better than we expected. What a delight to see my husband's eyes again ... and to be cared for by Dr. Howard.

      Physician was discourteous upon meeting me; abruptly walking in and out of room while assistant was taking photos to laugh with colleagues in hallway. Physician spoke in a demeaning tone and was patronizing. I drove 4 hours to see him after visiting his business website and made a mistake. I felt dismissed and that I was not speaking with a healthcare professional (which is what I am myself). I felt that he was there to collect consult fees and sell cosmetic products.

      Needed to have eyelids lifted to see better. Appoint made, saw Dr, Howard prior to surgery where he explained the procedure, date set for sutgery, & what I should do to prepare was explained. Day of surgery went smooth, met all staff which were going to be there, and then the lights went out! Woke up 45 minutes later with ice pack on eyes, had post op exam and was released with care instructions. Very little swelling, no eye pain at all. Stiches removed, eyes perfect!

      I would absolutely recommend Dr. Howard. He and his staff took time with me and answered all my questions. I am thrilled with my results!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
