Dr. Howalt - an intelligent choice for your physician

I especially like the online information . He took a long time to get my health history. Everything goes into the computer. He considers what I want and need in my health regimen.

Does not return calls.

I was very interested in talking to him, or getting an appointment. I left messages as no one would answer his phone: they said in a recording that they were probably busy. To this date, 3 days later I have received no reply.

Great Doctor

Dr. Howalt was very easy to speak with. He took his time and didn't rush through our appointment. He was great with my Mother and gave her the consideration she deserves. His staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The office is very nice and good location. I recommend Dr. Howalt to anyone looking for a family practitioner.
