I credit Dr.Randy Howard with saving my life. I had an endoscope done. He saw a tiny white spot off to the right side. He said it may just a glare or a and little speck of on the scope. But he did not feel comfortable as a doctor letting me leave his office and not having it checked by someone else. He thought it was nothing but just wanted to he safe. As it turned out I had lung cancer. Dr. Howard was the one to spot It. Thank you Sincerely, Cynthia Crabtree

He is a great dr...The first time I saw him, he was more reserved but after that he has been so very friendly and sweet!!!!!

I have to say that I am very dissapointed in my experience with Dr Howard and his staff at Gastroenterology and Hepatology in Hendersonville. Everyone at his office has been extremely rude and unhelpful. This statement does exclude Misty Martinez, the nurse practitioner, she was kind and knowledgeable but it wasn't enough... It feels like everyone else in that office is going out of their way to make a difficult situation even harder.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Howard and his staff. I sincerely believe they are concerned about my well being. I'm a 35 yr-old female and had a few symptoms that could have been anything, but because of Dr. Howard's thoroughness, we found out quickly that I had some serious polyps and they've been removed and his office continues to remind me how to stay on top of screening and prevention. Thanks, Dr. Howard and staff!

While I do believe Dr. Howard to be an excellent Dr., there is no sense of urgency to let his patients know the results of tests that have been performed. My daughter has a procedure a week ago and she has not gotten any results from this test yet. I do not believe this is good practice, and she needs to know something. Is this not the reason you go to a doctor, for them to help you?

He took his time to explain everything although it was a routine process.

I would never EVER come here. Office staff is horrible and rude. My mother called because she believes she has Colitis again she just had it 3 months ago.. she so called to talk to the doctor. When she told the nurse she looked up her history and saw where she had it 3 months ago and said oh yes that is VERY serious you need to have a follow up appointment and my mom was like no this is new it started again. My mom just had surgery so she said I just had surgery is there anyway to expedite and
