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.
