  • 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.

Patient

I wasn't sure about Dr Howard after my first visit but I have gone twice now and like him. There was some confusion in the office after my first visit and a couple of them are not all that friendly, I agree. But I returned., and am generally happy. I believe him to be a knowledgeable professional

Wanna Be Physician

THIS IS THE WORST EXCUSE FOR A MEDICAL PHYCISIAN EVER! HE QUACKS MORE THAN THE AFLACK DUCK! SERIOUSLY. HE POURS OUT NARCOTIC AFTER NARCOTIC, TELLS YOU TO MAKE SURE YOU CALL IN A FEW DAYS EARLY FOR A REFILL, THEN WHEN YOU FOLLOW HIS DIRECTION...ROFLMAO! HE SENDS YOU ACROSS THE HALLWAY TO SIGN UP FOR REHAB! OHHH MY GOSHHH. HE'S A LONE PILL MILL WITH CAHOOTS ACROSS THE HALL. HE HAS NEVER PROPERLY DIAGNOSED ANY OF THE ISSUES AT HAND AND IS A FAKE/BOGUS DOCTOR. SCREW THIS WANNA BE, DO NOT GO THERE! THE ONLY GOOD THING THIS PHONY HAS GOING FOR HIM IS HIS FRONT OFFICE STAFF! THAT'S IT! OMGSH, HE ALSO GOES OUT OF TOWN AND CANCELS APPOINTMENTS THAT ARE REALLY IMPORTANT TO A PATIENT BECAUSE HE HAD YET "ANOTHER" FAMILY EMERGENCY! SCREW HIM!
