    I've always had excellent care and Dr Howard is a Dr who I feel is interested in you and not rushing to see his next patient. Dr Howard relates with me on a person to person level and I would and do recommend him to my friends

    Dr. Howard is the right doctor for me. He cares about my overall health even though I feel good and my blood pressure is under control. Dr. Howard refers me for blood lab work frequently because my conditions warrants it. My insurance on the other hand, tries to find ways and excuses not to pay for my labs. They are not the one treating me; Dr Howard is, he orders simple blood work frequently to objectively monitor my health. This is a sign of a caring and thoughtful doctor.
