More about Dr. Howard D Diener

My practice philosophy centers around patient education and diagnostic /therapeutic medicine. Patients are given all treatment options and encouraged to ask questions, include family members, and view x-rays and lab reports. In my office, you have time with the Doctor and not physician extenders. Our initial visit lasts between 45 -60 minutes of face to face "Doctor time" and follow up visits average 20 -30 minutes. We practice medicine based on personal relationships and try to minimize the revolving door experience often created by large group practices. Calls are returned promptly, our staff goes the extra mile to make sure ancillary services such as oxygen and nebulizer DME needs are met, and personal attention to the patient complaint is paramount.
