The Doctor is in the House!

Dr. Howard is the most compassionate, caring & knowledgeable Physician I've ever had. I have multiple diagnosis and have suffered greatly at the hands of less compassionate Doctors. She truly listens to me and gives me the respect and dignity I have never experienced with any other Medical professional. She's the best, I am able to tell her what's "Really" going on without fear of judgement. I'm very grateful to her and would highly recommend her to anyone!

Great, caring doctor

The wait can be a little long but it is because Dr. Howard cares enough to be sure all my needs are met. Therefore it is well worth it. Dr Howard recognized me on my 2nd visit, after spending extra time getting to know about my health on my first visit. I highly recommend!

The Art of Compassionate Medicine

The Art of Compassionate Medicine is not only practiced but mastered by Dr. Alison Howard. Open honest and always helpful advice is given here not just meds and treatment. I am a 60 year old male and have more faith in the skills and knowledge Dr. Howard possesses than I ever imagined possible. It appears natural that with age comes new aliments, with Dr. Howard confidence that you are in great hands comes just as naturally.

Perfect

Dr. Howard is absolutely perfect in my opinion. She is very professional and will sit and listen to what your problems are. She isn't the type that will come in shake your hand, look at a chart, and say something like take two aspirin and drink lots of fluids and then rush out the door. She will sit with you and make you feel like you are the only person she has to see that day. She also will call and answer any questions you may have. Her staff is caring, respectful, and professional as well. I don't know if I could ever find another doctor or staff as great as Dr. Howard and her staff.
