I recently had Colectomy surgery and Dr. Howton performed the surgery. The surgery was not only a success, but the recovery at the hospital was as pleasant as it could be. Dr. Howton paid daily visits to me while recovering and was very helpful and sympathetic to my needs. He's very kind, knowledgable, and explained the surgery the best he could. He made the experience as stress free as possible. I was trult blessed to have such a nice person as my surgeon. Highly recommend.

I received the best care and had a great patient experience from Dr. Howton and his staff. I was very anxious and uncomfortable about going to a Colorectal doctor. Dr. Howton took the time to explain what I was dealing exactly what to expect. The staff was very professional and made me feel right at home.

Dr. Howton is a wonderful physician with such good bed side manners. He made me feel very comfortable discussing any problems that I had. He is very detailed in explaing things. I recently had a colonoscopy with him. I was a little nervous, but before and after the procedure he was right there to let me know everything was alright. I have recently recommended my friends and family to him. I believe that every physician could learn from this man. He is a blessing!

In addition to making me feel extremely confident in his expertise and skills, Dr. Howton is obviously a man of integrity who genuinely cares about people and has a passion for helping others.

Very friendly, explained everything thoroughly. Gave me multiple treatment options and explained benefits of each. Knowledgable and respectful. Was nervous about appointment since it's a sensitive area, but he and his nurse made me feel as comfortable as possible given the circumstances.
