Dr Howard has taken good care of me the past three years. I was initially unsure and got a second opinion from the experts at U of M who totally agreed with his approach. I've seen him or his staff at least monthly for the past three years for inoperable lung cancer. All have been first rate, especially Tonya, as I exceeded all expectations of survival.

Very helpful and friendly. Answers any questions you may have. Gave him a copy of my blood results and he noticed a problem with one of the items. Crittenton Lab said it was in the normal range. I knew it wasn't because I went through the same issue with another family member. He noticed it and told me how to handle the problem, although I already knew what I needed to do without him telling me. My regular doctor took the what the lab said and told me it was normal.

I have been with Dr. Howard for 3 yrs now and he has been a blessing to me and my family as I have journeyed through Pancreatic Cancer. He is a very caring and professional doctor whom I would, and have recommended highly.

He has an anger problem and can twist information when a mistake was made as a way to cover it up. This scares me. Everyone makes mistakes but it the cover up that will get them into trouble. He is probably a competent physician but no physician should yell at a patient at any time particularly a cancer patient who is scared to begin with.

The kindest, most compassionate Oncologist we came across. My wife's cancer was incurable and aggressive. But with Dr. Howards help, we got many more moths together than we should have had. Months that made a huge difference for my entire family. God bless George Howard
