Dr. Howard didn't ask many questions did more writing while I talked, he went off of tests that I had done two years ago by another doctor and told me everything should be the same. I felt like walking out of the office at that moment. I would NOT recommend him to no one.

Dr Howard gave very disappointing service. I began crying at one point while I was describing my symptoms and pains. He responded by laughing at me!!! Will not recommend or return!

Dr Howard was very thorough. He spent a great deal of time getting history and equal amount giving information. His bedside manner was pleasing and friendly. He really cared. Took me by surprise since most dr patient experiences I've had lately are none of the above. His nurse was outstanding also.
