Dr Howard, Mary, Brooke, and Philly are all awesome! they are very compassionate. they listen to my concerns make appropriate adjustments. they spend the time to get all the facts.

Best MD I've ever had. Highly respected by staff.

12/5/2016

Dr. Howard and her entire team have been great from the beginning of my treatment. I have always gone to Novant until they referred me out for bone marrow transplant. my original plan before meeting Dr. Howard was to get a second opinion before deciding where my Bmt would take please. when I met with Dr Howard at my first visit that all changed. She was so informative and compassionate, it was so obvious that she studied all my Novant records before seeing me because she new everything including surgeries in the past. I was more than impressed. after we saw her we met with other team members that were also very informative about what comes next. needless to say I walked out of there knowing there was no need to see anyone else because I wanted her to take care of me. since that time she has been great. I can honestly say that she is the best Dr. I have ever had. this whole process has moved me from being all about Novant Heath Cancer center to Baptist all the way this is due to Dr Howard and her entire team. in the future all my referrals will go to Baptist.
