    How was your appointment with Dr. Howard?

    May 03, 2022
    I had shoulder surgery in December 2021 and am glad to have had the surgery . I had a lot of damage from years of sports injuries and put off surgery until my pain was so great and my everyday use was more difficult . Dr Howard was great to work with and my shoulder is strong with no pain. I strongly recommend Dr Howard.
