Every aspect of my visits were great. The whole office from the front desk to the operating area to recovery and after care visits were professional, friendly and very efficient. Everyone made me feel at ease. I can’t say enough about the expertise of Dr. Howard’s work. I am extremely happy with the outcome of my surgery and would highly recommend Dr Howard to family, friends and anyone needed his surgical expertise. Thank you Dr. Howard !! Ms. Ann Hogue 2-1-2022
