The people in the office was nice and capable.

I was scheduled for a procedure today at the local hospital. Prior to my visit, I was in contact with his staff daily trying to make sure I had everything needed to perform my procedure. The staff reassured me everything was good. Upon arrival at the hospital, I was notified they do not have authorization to perform the procedure. This was at 12 noon and now it's 3:00 and I am still waiting. The sad thing about it Dr. Howard has two patients waiting, myself and another guy. Awful!!

You will see Nurse Practitioners more than you see this Dr. When you do see him, he seems like he's always in a rush. His administration staff is horrible. I have been trying to get my life insurance policy issued for 5 months and 3 of those months have been trying to get medical records for a stress test that I had performed and the records for that is missing. Call their office and always get a voicemails. When I finally get someone on the phone, my issue is always passed off. Poor Service.
