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.
in Feeding Hills, MA |
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.
in Ludlow Ma |
Dr Howe is a very intelligent and very compassionate man. He has shown my husband and I nothing but respect and concern for our condition . Back in 2009 Dr Howe helped us become parents to a little boy and we are currently going through treatment again to have our second child . Any one going or has gone through fertitly issues knows it is very hard and emotionly and you have to be patient . We trust him and I would recommend him !!!!
