Ophthaalmologist

Dr. Howitt and his staff are very professional, and it is always a positive experience when I have an appointment. Dr. Howitt was the only eye doctor who discovered there was something wrong with my eyes. If it was not for him taking the time to do more studies, I would have had vision problems as I aged. I am truly grateful to him as he was able to put me on a daily regimen of medication and save my eye sight! I would highly recommend Dr. Howitt to anyone who is in need of a caring and conscientious physician.

This place us utter chaos! Front Desk is RUDE. Long wait times. Doctors were more preoccupied on my appearance then my eyes. Rooms were dirty and not properly up-kept. They don't even properly sterilize equipment. I would not recommend them to anyone.
