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!

“Dr. Howe is wonderful. She fully explains everything, shows concern, and never makes me feel rushed.  Her follow-up care is also excellent.”
“Dr. Howe is genuine in her interest when I express any concerns I may have. She takes the time to listen and I never feel rushed by her.”
“I love Dr. Howe! She always takes the time to talk with me, listens to my concerns, makes great suggestions and discusses treatment when needed. She is a wonderful doctor!!”
"Dr. Howe is the best doctor there is. She is always very attentive, friendly and explains everything in detail."
