Dr. Howard is such a caring and personable doctor. She made me feel comfortable within minutes of meeting her.

Kristi is one of the few Doctor's left that really take time to LISTEN and treats you a a patient not a number. I'm very thankful she is my Doctor!

I love Dr. Howard!!

Dr Howard is beyond wonderful. She has been my OBGYN for both of my pregnancies. I looked forward to every appointment with her. She has great bedside manner. Talking with her is so easy. She is genuinely concerned about her patients and wants your pregnancy to be the best that it can be. She has great listening skills and wants you to leave feeling like all your questions were answered. I would recommend her in a heart beat! Thank You, Dr. Howard for all that you have done for my family and I!!

The best staffs so far

I would recommend the provider [...]

I haven't seen a GYN in a very long time. Dr. Howard was amazing! I will definitely see her ongoing. I highly recommend her to others.

She is the best dr. or OB I have ever had.

I have always received excellent attention from all!

Dr. Howard was friendly, compassionate, caring and collaborative. If I have another gynecological concern I will definitely return to her for help.

Dr. Kristy Howard is an excellent care provider. She provided me with information about my condition, answered my questions and walked me through the procedure with care and utmost concern. She kept asking me how I was doing during the procedure to see if she should continue. She explained what she was doing during the procedure and then explained in more detail afterwards to help me better understand. It provided me with a lot of comfort. I would highly recommend her to family and friends.
