Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have had the pleasure of being a patient with Dr. Howlett. Dr. Howlett is very attentive to his patients, he takes the time to spend with you during your visit discussing your care and/or concerns. His team is great. Dr. Howlett is very thorough in his patients care. He will answer any/or all of your questions to the best of his ability. He is extremely smart and humble. Always has a smile on his face which helps make his patients be more at ease during their visit. I have had the pleasure of working with him at Ortho RI as well and I have to say he is one of the best doctors that I have worked for, so kind hearted. His team is wonderful and always a pleasure to be around and work with! I would highly recommend him to my friends and family.
