What People Say About Dr. Robert Howe, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Dr. Howe is so accomplished and caring, attentive and responsive. He listened to me, and believed me, when so many other doctors did not. And even when my treatment went beyond his expertise, he continued to advocate me. He's exceptional - as a doctor, and a person.

Dr. Howe put me on two drugs with a very high dosage for heavy periods and for pain. These drugs worked well until I developed hives from them. I called the office immediately and the lady at the desk asked ME if I knew a different drug that could help. Obviously, if I knew what drug to take, I wouldn't have come to Dr. Howe in the first place. Dr. Howe was on vacation, didn't call me back for two weeks, and seemed far from empathetic. He didn't even apologize so I happily switched doctors.

I had a terrific experience with Dr. Howe. I saw him for PMS problems that other medical professionals had not found solutions. He is incredibly knowledgeable about his field and listens to patients, answers questions in detail, and works on your individual treatment plan until success. I highly recommend his services.

Went to Dr. Howe with a bacterial infection that just needed antibiotic. I knew exactly what was wrong as I have had this before. The office billed me for a high complexity visit (over $400) and I received an almost $1800 bill a year later from a lab for a full dna panel. I had no idea he was sending for these tests and I don't even know what any of them are for. I have never needed dna testing for a simple common infection. The bill has fraud written all over it. Patients beware!

Dr. Howe has been amazing! I had an issue that caused problems with just everyday living and the ability to function. He was able to find the problem and come up with a course of action that has changed everything! He is very patient and kind and really takes the time to listen and explain all that is involved in a visit.

Although I have only visited him for relatively minor things, I have been very impressed by Dr Howe, who strikes me as an extremely capable and kind doctor (one of the kindest I have seen through many, many infertility treatments). I recommend him highly. Very professional and accommodating office staff, too.

No one knew what was happening to me after I had my ovaries removed and a bilateral mastectomy. I almost instantly had menopause and my anxiety went through the roof. Dr. Howe was the only one that understood what was going on inside me and was able to explain it so I could understand it. Then he treated me and I finally feel like me again. I wish we had more people like him.
