Dr. Howard puts you in the driver’s seat. Explains your treatment options, & then let’s you take the wheel, following you down whatever path you choose. He has the best “bed side” manner of any doctor that I have seen. He always listens to you, doesn’t make you feel like he’s in a hurry & I believe really cares about his patients wellbeing. He helped me get control of my anxiety & depression when no other doctor seemed to care. I will NEVER see another MD, even if I have to pay out of pocket!

I am currently a patient of the office, and my son, who wasn't a patient at the time, was sick. I called the office requesting an appt, and normally they do not see new patients same day, but the front office spoke to Dr Howard and he stated to bring him in right away. They worked to get my son in on short notice, and even as a new patient. I love the office, and the staff and Drs are wonderful. Dr Fulbright was attentive and friendly, and Dr Howard was extremely accommodating. Thank you so much
