What the staff wants you to know about Dr. Howell:
Since joining Eye Associates in 2009, Dr. Howell’s compassion has made him a staff favorite. Dr. Howell’s patients usually come in two’s—mom and child or dad and child. He cares not only for the child in his exam chair, but also for the family that is often worried about the child’s vision. The possibility that the child may have a vision problem is scary, and Dr. Howell takes the time needed to help the parents. As a husband and as a father of two, he understands.
R. H., Dr. Howell’s tech, says:
“He is so patient. Watching him take the time to warm up a scared child is amazing.”
