I contested a charge for lab work that I hadn't ordered, wanted or needed. I had gone in for a routine blood test to allow me to refill a prescription I'd had for years and another test was added without my knowledge. Medicare won't pay it because it is deemed 'medically unnecessary'. Dr. Howard's practice has refused to return my calls or answer my letters. What they did do was send me a letter 'terminating ' me. And I never even received the lab results I was billed for. I'd avoid this fellow.

Will never return. Went a few days ago for a kidney stone pain and infection. Dr. Howard spent less than 1 minute with me. Said he would call antibiotics in...which even after the nurse went over my current meds...the anti biotics had severe interactions with my current meds. Gave me a shot of toradol....told me no narcotics would help with this kind of pain..which I then wound up waiting in the ER for 6 hours. ER doc said his treatment plan was horrible! No bedside manner at all.

Visited office for ear ache. Was seen faster than expected. Staff was very nice and empathetic. Dr. Howard was direct and took the time to answer my questions.
