Removed floaters I'm my eye. Made me feel very comfortable .

Dr. Howard and his staff are friendly caring people who demonstrate the kind of confidence and competence that quickly puts patients at ease. Although squeezed in as a last minute referral, I was made to feel as though I were their only reason for being there. The need for every test was thoroughly explained and the results were covered in depth. My problem was diagnosed and laser surgery to correct a small retinal tear was performed on my initial visit. I can't imagine going anywhere else.

Dr.Howard is amazing. I have had retinopathy and a retina detachment and he has fixed my eye and made me feel comfortable with every aspect of my surgery, my recovery and I see him annually to stave off any further need for surgery. He and his staff are fantastic and come highly recommended.

His manor of care and handling of his patiences is second to none. I would recommend him to anyone in need of eye care and have. His staff are just as friendly and caring. Great Job 5 Stars in my book
