I do wear hearing aids, but she was very loud, I guess she thought I couldn't hear, however that is what the hearing aids is for. although at one time I did take them out, it is hard for me to understand sometimes, but I still think she was a bit loud, I felt everyone outside of the room could hear her.

Dr. Howard is always on time - how unusual! SO GRATEFUL that she is my PCP & under Vanderbilt care!
Patient | December 15, 2017

Having recently returned to this area, I was very pleased that I could again meet with this doctor. Years ago, I saw her after a fall at my fault. I had lived in Florida for many years, but was visiting my daughter and family at the time and needed some medications re-ordered. I would not hesitate to recommend this office/doctor to anyone.
Patient | December 12, 2017

I've only seen this provider twice and I don't have any depth of history to make much of a critique. I don't yet have any medical issues of import to determine this providers expertise. So far she has been helpful and competent and seems reasonable and caring.
Patient | December 7, 2017

I never have a problem. Always great.
