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!
