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!

I have recommended Dr Howe to many people. Her care & concern, coupled with great clinical expertise is a winning combination. Several years ago, as a school nurse, I recommended Dr Howe to a student's mother and felt that she was instrumental in getting him help he needed to save his life.
Dr. Howe is always very thorough & always asks if I am in agreement with the treatment plan.
Dr. Howe is an excellent physician. She is easy to talk to and not an alarmist.
Dr. Howe is truly one of the best doctors I've ever seen. She is caring, attentive, always takes the time to listen and best of all educate me! I am very blessed to be under her care!
