Dr. Howard W Morningstar has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

former patient

Has a formidable array of credentials. I feel if his first impression with you is good, you're in as far as courteous service, advice, and good information goes. However, if, for any odd reason or nuance, he just doesn't have a report with you from your very first visit, don't count on informative feedback. Nuances that annoy him: not too sure. Perceived religious beliefs; booger in your teeth you forgot about, countenance isn't a smiling one, you're a Christian, who knows. The most time you'll get from him in an office visit is 5 minutes, TOPS; often less. Paris,the nurse in his office, gives far more time, in my experience, and is genuinely concerned. Also, for ladies, Sue, his wife, is the best. I know Howard is good...I guess we just didn't hit it off. Wish I knew why.

An Asset to the Community

I have been a patient of Dr. Morningstar since 2000 and absolutely believe him to be an excellent doctor with a caring staff. I've had many health concerns over the past decade and Dr. Morningstar has never let me down. He will always see you that very day if you are sick. He's always ready to answer any questions or concerns you may have, and is good at explaining complicated things in a "down-to-earth" way. With Dr. Morningstar you get the best of both worlds, besides Yale (heard of it?) he is also highly trained in alternative medicine, and often his "folk remedies" are spot on. If you're looking for a great family doctor that cares deeply for the health of his patients, look no further. He also has a wonderful staff, in an interesting building completely unlike most doctor offices. They've always been able to work with various insurance companies I've had, and have never not followed up on anything. I feel grateful to have Dr. Morningstar as my doctor, and most people I know feel the exact same way.

I would not go to anyone else.

Dr. Morningstar is proactive about your health. He wants to catch things before they become real problems. He never suggests the most radical answer (like surgery) until the simpler ones have been tried.

Combines the best of both worlds

I've been Dr Howard Morningstar's patient for 13 years. He's a real old fashioned family doctor who cares about me, and he also is very helpful when i have questions about natural medicines. He even made a house call when i was too sick to come in. He is the kind of doctor that gives doctors a good name.
