What People Say About Dr. Shawn Howell, MD
Reply
Dr. Howell performed my cath/heart surgery last week at GW Hospital. Her bedside manner and sweet demeanor cannot be surpassed. You want someone who is not only knowledgeable but also cares like a family member. You get both characteristics from Dr. Howell. Within two visits Dr. Howell was able to diagnose my condition and performed surgery to relieve me of two blockages in the same artery. It takes knowledge to be able to do that as opposed to procrastinating with umpteen tests.
