What makes the concierge services so special?
Dr. Howard’s services are highly personalized and focused on your health goals. He evaluates every aspect of your wellbeing and gives you all of the time and care that you, not only need, but deserve.
It is Dr. Howard’s philosophy that the whole person must be cared for and not just one part or one disease. that separates him from many other practices It is when we can combine mind, body, spirit with traditional medicine that optimal health can be found.
This is a key difference compared to seeing a specialist that evaluates and manages just one thing. If you go to a University for an Executive Health Program you will typically have about an hour (if you are lucky) with a physician, a comprehensive exam, tests (that are standard) and maybe some nutritional counseling by a dietician. Dr. Howard’s program takes everything you would get in that kind of setting and adds an even more comprehensive approach and a human touch. He looks at your nutritional and metabolic needs, ordering tests that can pinpoint nutritional insufficiencies allowing him to create a highly personalized program for you. In addition, he evaluates all lifestyle habits that play a role in chronic disease and helps you modify them to help create optimal health.
