Dr. Howe shared that patients can expect him to treat them as family.
“One of the biggest influences in life is my father. As a retired surgeon, he told me from day one that patients are taken care of as if they were members of your own family. That’s how I was raised, and that’s how I practice medicine,” said Dr. Howe.
“Colon and rectal surgery have additional concerns due to the sensitivity of the areas we treat. Every patient that I see in the office should rest assure that those concerns are well understood and privacy is always respected,” he shared.
