Patient Comments (3)
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.

Dr. Howard has helped me immensely with my headaches. She takes time to answer questions and I don't feel rushed to leave.

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!
