What People Say About Dr. Pamela Howard, MD
I recently went to Dr. Howard when she opened her new office here in San Clemente. She spent almost an hour with me for the first appointment....what doctor does that now days?? She took the time to really understand my issues and map out my treatment plan. She also does telehealth, which for me is great because I work in Irvine and it saves me the drive. She doesn't take insurance but was able to give me the paperwork so that I can be reimbursed from my insurance. She said that she may take insurance in the future. Overall I was really impressed. Plus her office is located on the second floor of the SC Outlet mall…I had no idea there were offices there.
