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!

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.
