Dr Howard has been amazing with my 15 year old. I initially wondered if an 80 year old man could connect with a 15 year old transgender kid but I have absolutely no doubts about it anymore. What an wonderful doctor... He has been kind, thoughtful, accepting and enormously helpful. I recommend him highly!
