Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

Being in FamilyPractice/Urgent Care, all conditions are addressed; some will need specialty care, some not.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

I use a holistic approach. I treat the body as a union of all parts rather than many isolated systems.

What inspired you to become a doctor?

When I was a teen, I looked up to a family doctor who took care of me when I underwent hospitalization. I had interaction with the staff of the hospital and the rest is history!

Patient Ratings & Comments


Comments are gathered from our patient satisfaction surveys.

Dr Howe continues to be the BEST Doctor I have ever had. She is loving, caring and knowledgable. I have total confidence in her. I don't want any other doctor. My only worry is that she may retire before I'm dead.
I have been a patient of Dr. Howe for many years and have been very impressed with her. She's always patient, kind and thorough in her examinations and advice.
I have been cmg to dr howe for many years herself and other staff are great! She gave me same med for when I had an episode for first time last year and I need to followup. The Other that I am still concerned with a sporadic pain issues which the pain is sporadically happening In my upper torso area that at least an xray to look inside would help to see Inside if all okay or not or a catscan. But she didn't think it was needed!
Excellent provider!!! I will highly recommend her!!!
