Dr. Howe is by far the best primary care physician I have ever been to. Her bedside manner is excellent and she takes the time to make sure you understand every detail about the exam being performed and any findings shehas. When prescribing a new medication she will run down the different side effects you may experience and the likelihood of experiencing them based on clinical trials. I found this piece of information very informative and made me feel better about trying a new medication. At the end of my first visit with her I felt like she truly cared about my health and made sure I felt comfortable throughout the whole exam. Most other doctors have you in and out in minutes. Since that day she has been my primary doctor ever since. On subsequent visits she remembered details of my personal life I shared like frustration with my job or my late nights impacting my ability to exercise. She always asks about my progress in those areas and I can tell its genuine interest rather than simple pleasantries. Overall I would recommend Dr. Howe to anyone looking for a new primary care physician. You will not be disappointed.

Even though I made an appointment, I still waited an hour and a half to be seen by the doctor. The doctor however, was very nice and thorough. I would see her again just not on the weekends when it isso busy. They gave me a gift card as an apology so that was nice.
