I had a hip replacement about year and a half ago by Dr. Howard. I was back to work as a plumber in four weeks and have had no issues at all with the hip since. He was very good going over my options and office visits were pleasant. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Over all I liked him. He needs to take more time explaining things though. I like his P.A. Robin very much. She has been doing injections in my knee, which have been very helpful. And she is very pleasant and informative.

Dr Howard was pleasant, informative, and fun for my 10 year old with a broken wrist. His medical staff also was impressive. No complaints. We would recommend this office.

Dr. Howard was congenial and informative. He communicated the choices in procedures well, as well as the pros and cons of each. The nurse who showed me to my room was not as welcoming. I?d waited 1 ? hours for my visit. She informed me because I was ten minutes late she?d put all other arrivals...more
