Care Philosophy

I feel it is important for patients to understand their options for testing and treatment and involve them in decision making. My staff and I are empathetic, caring and professional. We use a state of the art lung function testing machine and can also test for a gas released in breath that can indicate the degree of airway inflammation (irritation).  We use very accurate skin or blood testing for sensitivity to inhalants (pollens, pets, molds, dust mites), foods and stinging insects.  We administer standard allergy injections as well as the newest biological, injections for asthma (Xolair and Nucala), chronic hives (Xolair), and eczema (Dupixent).  We also evaluate patients with chronic cough, which can be a complicated and frustrating problem.  We respect patient's time and try to respond to phone questions promptly. We try to treat our patients the way we would want to be treated in our own doctors' offices.

Patient Comments (1)
in Austin, TX |
I have seen Dr. Howland for many years. He is one of the few doctors I feel has taken the time to really hear what is going on with me and then taken the time to treat me and answer any questions. With most doctors taking less than 10 minutes per patient, I find Dr Howland a breath of fresh air. He finds solutions to problems others just say try this and let me know if you get any positive results. His office and staff are kind and supportive.
