Patient Comments (3)

Dr. Howell was condescending and arrogant. I had a life threatening blood clot and I was treated as if I was a bother. Thankfully, I got a second opinion from my cardiologist. Spent 10 days in The Heart Hospital. Then I was dismissed from his care the very next visit. As if I had offended him for receiving a second opinion. Zero PT was ordered. I now suffer permanent damage from his lack of care. I would never recommend ANYONE to use him.

Dr. Howell was very professional and polite when I first saw him. He answered all my questions and he seemed interested in what I was saying. I would gladly refer family and friends to him.
