So hard to believe, but have found a great doctor who spends time with you sharing alot of information, listened to my concerns & believes in the conservative approach (actually asked my opinion on which route i was comfortable with taking) extremely knowledgeable, yet not full of himself (as is the case elsewhere...) I would highly recommended Dr. Howard for all things foot related. Waiting time was minimal!

My wife saw Dr Howard on 11/10/16 for a very minor procedure,to cut a tendon in her toe to enable the toe to make proper contact with the ground.Dr Howard emphasized several times that this would be only be a 30 second procedure. When I received the bill, I was flabbergasted that this procedure was billed at $1089. We will never return and would not recommend this practioner.
Our fees are set by Medicare and the difference between the billed amount and paid amount is adjusted off at the time payment is received. To discuss or for further clarification, we have a Patient Advocate dedicated to answering patient questions. She may be reached directly at 941-951-2663, extension 211. We value you as a patient; our mission is to get our patients back on their feet, back to work, back in the game, and back to life.

My left foot was hurting so bad I could barely walk. I had been to therapy, seen other physicians, had cortisone shots and nothing was working as a real long term fix. Dr. Howard prescribed a cream to use as well as specific shoes and support. He also put me in an ankle support because there was more than one problem. There is never a quick fix for tendon damage but given enough time and the right treatment they will heal. It has taken 8 months later I can walk to Atlanta!! Thank you!!!!!

I am a 56 yr old diabetic and I have been under Dr. Howard's care for 8 yrs. He has helped me with diabetic ulcers,and has performed several operations on my foot. I have always found him to be very competent and caring. He has gone out of his way for my care many times. His personality ,intellect,and sense of humor really make office visits enjoyable for me.

Brilliant doctor with outstanding bedside manner, who also takes my insurance- what's not to love about Dr. Howard? On a more serious note, my surgery went off without a hitch. I have very little pain and Dr. Howard performed it in the least intrusive manner possible, educating me about each step along the way. I love Dr. Howard and his staff and would highly recommend his services!

Dr. Howard was personable, professional and spent time to explain my condition.

Dr.Howard, is perhaps the best for care and communication to his patients . My experience was something I was so pleased with that for sure he warrants at least five stars. I would not hesitate to recommend this fine gentleman to anyone.

On the initial visit, Dr. Howard spent over an hour helping me to understand the issues with my feet. He made concrete recommendations for stretching exercises and specific footwear. Although I am aware that surgery will be in my future, it was not the first thing he mentioned. I am in awe at his expertise, knowledge and abilities. I've been to so many doctors with specialties in the foot, and no one has been as knowledgeable and helpful as Dr. Howard. What a find!!
