“I’m 51 years old and had Kevin Howe, MD replace both of my hips within 2 months of one another. Now I’m 6 months post (2nd) surgery and am heading back to full duty work as a peace officer. No driving a desk for me. Thank you Dr. Howe for the caring consummate professional that you are. If you ever need a steroid injection, PA Natalie is amazing. Having had several injections after my initial car accident, Natalie was the only one who free handed the massive needle into the exact spot on the 1st try. What a blessing she was. And I’m not forgetting Samantha who made sure workers’ comp provided everything I needed. You all are a wonderful team.” -Rob Hearn
