Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Howe was my doctor for over 30 years. I have found him to be knowledgeable and reasonable advisor on the capabilities of health care. He's successfully treated my broken finger, toenail fungus, blepharitis, concerning moles, high blood pressure, hallux limitus, sinus and mental issues using specialists when necessary. Unfortunately I've moved and need a new PCP.

Ignores problems you report and becomes complacent over time. Disinterested in your overall health. Has you come in for needless office visits to bolster billing numbers. You can do better elsewhere.

Dr. Howe is an amazing doctor, he listens and ask questions never rushes me out. I have been a patient of his for over 17 years . I consider myself very fortunate to have him as my doctor. I have complete trust in him he explains things in a way that I can understand it, because I have no medical background .I have recommended him to my brother and he called me and thanked me for recommending Dr.Howe to him. His staff is also outstanding.
