Dr. Kristi Howard is a fantastic doctor. She listens to your concerns and always has the right solution for any problem. I trust her very much with my care and to get an honest opinion, diagnosis, recommendation. Only reason I am willing to wait so long for an appointment.

Dr. Howard is very easy to talk to, she always seems to remember me and my history, and never makes me feel as if my concerns aren't important. I recommend to anyone looking for an ob-gyn.
