Dr. Drew Howard has changed my life for the better! He has given me my life back! I suffered from severe, heavy periods and have aggressive endometriosis. I was done having kids and wanted to feel better. I had no energy. I was having 2 periods a month and always hurt in my abdomen with cramps and stinging pains. I had an DNC, tubal and Ablation and haven't hurt or had a period since. IT'S AMAZING!! I am grateful to him and highly recommend his awesome practice!!
