What People Say About Dr. Hilton Howard, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Howard did what I felt was a cursory check-up during my 4 week postpartum appointment and left 5 min after he entered the exam room. I was never screened for postpartum depression/anxiety, or asked about postpartum symptoms or complications. Out of all of the numerous ACOG-recommended components for postpartum care, he mentioned one. PWC still has not admitted fault to their approach. (The site manager told me that providers just "knew" when PPD was an issue based on a patient's demeanor.)

I am new to the practice-the staff was very friendly, the office was clean & organized--in speaking with the staff it felt as if they knew me and I wasn't new to the practice-that made it less scary. Dr. Howard comes in and talks to you before you undress and he examines you-that made me feel a little more comfortable. Then during the exam, he made sure to try & calm me as I was in a lot of pain. Upon check-out I was asked how my appointment was-that was very nice. Blood draw was mostly painless

I have been a patient of Dr. Howard now for three years. He is extremely compassionate and always offers options for treatment. He always answers my questions patiently and has been very helpful.

Dr. Howard has delivered both of my children, helped me to navigate menopause and hysterectomy and each time gave me options and care that were exceptional! He had never asked me to do or take anything I didn't feel comfortable with and always prescribed care that neither went overboard or left me needing additional care. He treats you like family.

One of the worst experiences I have had. The doctor lacks compassion, no good bed side manner. He suggested hysterectomy for fibroid removal when a minimally invasive myomectomy was done by a specialist in the field 5 weeks later. Has limited patience and can be flustered when asked questions. He even mis-diagnosed an appendicitis (life threatening) when he was the oncall OB for his practice. Thanks to my specialist I am fibroid and appendix free. Would never recommend anyone to him or practice
