How likely are you to recommend Dr. Howington?

(Select your rating)
Dr Howington saved me. Lung cancer was a terrifying diagnosis. My mother died of it. So at 65, though I hated the thought of surgery, Dr John Howington made it practically painless, I still can’t find the scars. And Because of his skill no chemo at all! Thank God. He is a consummate communicator, which is rare for surgeons, gentle, clear, respectful. Over the year she of many doctors I rarely have found any as compassionate and gentle hearted with amazing skill, knowledge. If you choose Dr Howington you are in excellent hands. Bless you and Bless Dr Howington. Karen from Chicago
