Dr. John Howard is a kind, thorough, intelligent physician who makes extra effort to make his patients feel comfortable and informed. He takes the time to explain the diagnosis and treatment plan, so there are no unknowns when leaving the appointment. He does not just throw expensive medications at you and does not order/perform anything that is not necessary. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone with ENT or allergy issues.

I've been having problems with migraines and headaches a neurologist send me to the ENT dr. Howard to see if my sinuses were cause of headaches. It cost me $150 to be seen wasn't even in there five minutes for him to put some Afrin in my nose tells me I'm good and then sends me a bill for $500. I felt unsatisfied by the service and abused by the bill

I was treated by Dr Howard for severe ear pain. The entire staff, from check in to check out, were friendly and efficient. Dr Howard was very thorough in his exam and promptly diagnosed the cause of my pain. He performed a minor procedure at that time, which significantly decreased my pain within just a few minutes. This was my first time seeing Dr Howard, and I quickly learned I was in good hands. The will he has to help his patients is evident. I would recommend Dr H and his staff to anyone

Dr. Howard is very thorough and caring. He was excellent about giving me over-the-counter prescriptions save me money, prior to prescribing me medications. He spent extra time explaining all diagnoses, treatments and precautions. He also took an extended amount of time to listen to and address my questions and concerns. He is very intelligent, but also very down to earth. Great guy and great doctor.

This was my first visit. Excellent from the start! The staff was very friendly, welcoming and helpful. While I was waiting, one patient commented to me "Best Doctor I have ever had." Once in an examination room the great experience continued. I found Dr. Howard to be very friendly and he did a great job with the examination. I never felt rushed. I had seen 3 other Doctors for this same issue and thanks to Dr Howard I am finally getting better. I would highly recommend him without hesitation
