Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Howard "As an Otolaryngologist specializing in Airway, Voice and Swallowing Disorders I enjoy the opportunity to improve the quality of my patient's lives by educating them on the problems they have, the recommended therapy or procedures, and available alternative options. I believe the physician-patient relationship is a critical part of the healing process and enjoy getting to know my patients well and being a person they can rely upon for care, education, or 'just being there' for them."
