Dr. Howes is an amazing doctor who really cares about his patients and is an expert in so many areas. He is well-respected and takes time to explain everything so it's clear and easy to understand. He also has a fantastic staff! Dr. Nervez and NP Diaz round out this great team and are equally amazing. Lafayette is lucky to have such a jewel of a pediatric clinic at UHC Peds Clinic
