    How was your appointment with Dr. Howell?

    Dec 16, 2019
    I am saddened by Dr. Howells semiretirement and he will be missed. I first met him as a RN Patient Advocate for my friend who was suffering from Pancreatic cancer. He was then kind enough to take me on as a patient for a variety of GI problems. His knowledge, professionalism, patience and what he has offered to his profession earns him many more than 5 stars. I recently ran into him at his office and in jest told him that he’s not allowed to retire until I don’t need him any more........we need many more doctors of his caliber.
