About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr. Howard is an excellent doctor. She doesn't "talk down" to you and explains why certain care is recommended so you can be fully informed about your health care plan. She has a knack for bringing up possible issues in a non-terrifying way so you can be informed but not led to believe you have a major issue until one is definitively found; she has the right mix of concern but not overly-concerned.

Dr. Howard is an excellent OB/GYN. She is very informative instead of just glossing over things. She answers all my questions in a friendly conversational way (as opposed to the "talking down to the patient" I've received from some other providers). I'm very satisfied in the level of care I receive from her and have every confidence in her diagnoses/recommendations.

Dr. Howard is an amazing doctor who made me feel really comfortable and at ease with my pregnancy. She answered all my questions..even the silly ones.. and never made me feel rushed. I almost felt like I was her only patient as she would ask multiple times if I had more questions/concerns etc. I would and have recommended her to my friends and feel so blessed to have gotten her as my Ob.
