From my first appointment with Dr. Howard she took the time to listen to me and to work together on a treatment plan for my near daily migraines. I began to hope again that the migraines would be reduced and I could have my life back. With a wide variety treatment plan the migraines were reduced and I began to have a normal life again.

I believe Dr. Howard is a great neurologist bc she takes the time to listen, has a good bedside manner and not only is knowledgeable regarding medications but about diet and exercise. I would highly recommend her. I am glad I ended up with her and my doctor.

I had an MRI of my spine to look for lesions for Multiple Sclerosis. Dr. Howard completely overlooked the MRI results and told me everything looked great. I was sent home with the report so I looked over the notes myself. I had a lesion in the middle of my spine due to demyelination! I called her office after reading these shocking results. She responded that she had made an error because she was just tired and didn't even go over the report. So thankful I was able to diagnose MYSELF with MS.

The number of neurologists who have uttered the words I'm sorry, there's nothing I can do for you are in double digits for me, a lifelong migraine sufferer who's pain, severity and frequency has only gotten more intense as the recent years passed. Dr. Howard has not only helped me, she has given me options, sat with me while I cried and explained precisely what is happening inside and around my head so that I had a better grasp and no longer felt these awful things were my doing.She's amazing!
