The doctor wanted me to keep taking more over-the-counter medicines for 2 more days, instead of giving me a prescription. I asked her to give me a prescription before I left my visit & she did. That is what I needed to get well.

Doctor Howard is a superb Doctor. This visit was great, but somewhat not to her exceptional standards.

Very professional. Always listens to my concerns and takes time to answer all of my questions.

I have recommended her to others because she is an excellent provider. she has been with me through all of my many procedures.
Patient | April 1, 2016

Realizing the time constraints the doctor has, I have to take responsibility for not speaking up more quickly in health concerns. Usually, I find that questions come to mind after the doctor has left the room. I do appreciate the online Vanderbilt messaging site and have used it to satisfaction. The answers and/or questions come very timely.
