I tore a ligament (bad) in my wrist requiring a modified brunelli procedure. Dr. Howlett is incredibly compassionate, honest, professional, and kind throughout the entire process. I could tell he was invested in my recovery and future. I'm now a year out from the surgery and besides the scar, I forget I even had the surgery most days.

I recently suffered a bad wrist fracture at work requiring surgery. Dr. Howlett and the surgical team were very professional both prior to, and after my surgery. I had a consultation with Dr. Howlett and his assistant Zach before my surgery which put my mind at ease as I was very apprehensive about my prospects for a full recovery due to the compound damage to my wrist. People like Dr. Howlett are miracle-workers in my view who have the knowledge to help our bodies heal right. Paul Buchignan

As I nursed my broken elbow I told my friend I needed a Dr. who was extremely kind, empathetic, and optimistic. In walked Doctor Howlett with a big smile and a realistic, but encouraging diagnosis and treatment plan. My many questions were answered with respect and I always felt heard and understood. Dr. Howlett and the staff at Proliance were refreshingly friendly, efficient and helpful. Their smiles and kindness make such a difference. My longest office waiting time was 5 minutes!
