Rarely do you meet a doctor who takes the time, compassion, and concern to treat what you need. I left the office feeling like I made a new friend, above all else. Dr. Howland cared for my specific situation, diagnosed what had been bothering me greatly for years, and set me on a path with many options to best work with my life and specific circumstances. You better believe I will be sending many people his way!

He spent the most time with me of any doctor in the last 10 years. It took us a while (and a couple of visits) to figure out what was wrong with me. But each time, he listened and adjusted the plan of action based on my feedback. He continually stays up to date on new medicines and new research. Final note, good staff makes a good doctor. They rock...

He takes the time to talk to you, to know you and help with your medical issues. He has a great sense of humor and easy to talk to. His nurses are great and all go out of their way. If you have insurance issues he goes out of his way to talk to companies to help with medications . They are all awesome! Highly recommended!

Dr. Howland and Anna, Bev - His whole staff are not only amazing but more importantly- Dr. H knows his stuff. I have had allergy shots and always stayed in his care and he is ALWAYS on point. From moving to Texas and not being able to breathe well to feeling MUCH better but more importantly well year round because of his expert care is PRICELESS. HIGHLY RECOMENDED!

I can’t speak highly enough about Dr. Howland! Not only was he extremely knowledgeable and informative, but he has one of the kindest, most genuinely compassionate bedside mannners I’ve ever encountered. His office staff was also very gracious and friendly, and the appointment was punctual and thorough. I’d give this office 6 stars if I could! So grateful to have found them!

I went to see Dr. Howland regarding some allergy issues. He was such a nice and knowledgeable person! He was familiar with everything I brought to his attention, and he took the time to explain in detail why I was experiencing these issues. I would definitely recommend him! AND, his staff is very nice!!
