Dr. Howerton was recommended to my daughter by her aunt.   We were warned that she was a little odd. I went with my daughter to several of her appointments.  The first appointment. We met the nurse practitioner Kaitlyn and loved her and the rest of the staff.   My grandaughter  was due Thanksgiving 2019 but mid September my daughter went to the hospital having contractions.   Dr. Howerton put her on medication to stop the contractions,  and partial bed rest and told her to go back to the hospital if she had any bleeding or the contractions got worse.    One night my daughter did have some bleeding and her husband took her to the hospital.   Still pre term labor and bed rest.      I took my daughter to her next office visit and Dr. Howerton was so rude, told my daughter to quit running to the hospital for every little pain.    Four days later my daughter was in labor but scared to go to the hospital afraid of Dr. Howerton talking down to her again.    She was in labor and  the babys he

I had my first appointment with Dr.Howerton and I could not have felt more comfortable. She is very knowledgeable and warm. Whole experience was extremely pleasant and would recommend her. Her staff was very professional and easy to talk and joke around. Had a great experience. She was also very upbeat and gave me positivity. So glad I walked in her office. She really did go above and beyond to reassure me.

I had my first visit with Dr. Howerton this week. She was recommended to me by a friend, who is a patient of hers. I am 56 years old and I have never felt so confident, comfortable, secure, and listened to by a doctor like I did with Dr. Howerton. I literally felt like I had known her my entire life and actually felt as if I was in my own living room visiting with a good friend. She is the best! I left her office feeling so happy, relieved and thankful that I found her.

Dr. Howerton is cold & distant, she will treat you as if you've done something wrong if you ask questions about anything. She has thrown up her hands at me & said "ok, ok!" so rudely when i dared ask about a procedure. She behaved this way on other visits, too. My daughter was injured (her face was cut) by her during a c-section & she couldn't have been more distant & uncaring towards me & my daughter. It makes me SICK to my stomach that I chose her as my OB. PLEASE find another doctor!

After she informed me that we could only do the well woman exam and not discuss anything else due to what insurance would pay her office, I told her that this was the most awkward office visit I've ever had and I told her she will not be examining me. She ripped off her gloves and said "goodluck" and stormed out of the exam room. I'm still dumbfounded by the complete absence of bedside manner. ZERO STAR RATING

I went to see the nurse Practioner Lindsey because of the pain I was in. She told me she needed to do one biopsy and instead did more. She told me to put Neosporin on the biopsies which burned me so bad I was in tears. Then they call and tell me I was negative on everything and if my pain gets worse to call. I told the girl the pain is worse that I can't hardly sit in a chair, and she said you will need to make an appointment with the Dr. I will never recommend this office to anyone I know.

I love Dr. Howerton and Ihave been going to her practice for over 3 years now. In the case that she is unavailable to meet according to my schedule, I have also met with the Nurse Practitioner, Brooke who is also very helpful and knowledgeable. I am now due with my fist in 2 weeks and wouldn't want to have been seen by anyone else through my pregnancy :)

Her nurse practioner put me on a new birth control to change my cycle for my wedding and told me to call if anything was out of the ordinary. I began feeling abdominal pain and needed additional advice which they offered to give. I have been calling everyday for a week and leaving messages and they only once tried to call me back. I can't imagine if this were a more serious situation. I would never recommend anyone see this doctor.

I am very unhappy with this doctor and because of my unpleasant experience I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. I am planning a return visit to Tulsa in 6 minths and wanted to arrange a 6 month follow up appointment with her but she refuses to arrange time for the follow up visit in July 2016.
