      Kind, to the point, resourceful, and smart. Better than the many many internal medicine doctors and even infectious disease doctors I've seen over the last six years of my chronic illness/autoimmune disorder. More grateful than I can say.

      Never ever ever been to such a thorough doctor in my life. He is an outstanding diagnostician, in addition to being an excellent doctor who spends more time than any other doctor I have ever been to while he works through a methodical examination of history and present condition. I thank God for steering me in his direction. !!

      Dr. Howland was such a delight! He took his time in diagnosing a multiple layered problem. His positive attitude really helped put me at ease. The allergy testing was really painless and gave me the answers I was looking for quickly! His nursing team was just as delightful. Overall wonderful experience. :)

      I wasn't sure what to expect, as this was my first visit to an allergist. However, Dr. Howland actually made me feel like he cared about how I've been feeling and wanting to help me breathe clearly again.
