Appt. overall was good. However, after driving to Spokane from Montana on terrible roads only to find out I was not going to get surgery and just some prescriptions, it would have been much more conveinient to have a phone consultation for that.

My appt. was with the surgeon, who spent about a minute with me. However, the P.A. and all other medical & clerical staff were unfailingly helpful, knowledgeable, kind, respectful, patient, and conscientious. So, although this particular visit with Dr. Howlett was sort of a farce, all my experiences with others in the office have been very positive.

Dr. Howlett and PA [...] are amazing and wonderful. One of his MAs is wonderful. Not impressed with some of the other staff. I would still one for our clinic and would not hire others if they were the only available staff. I had to call three times over a week plus before the PT referral went through, some related issues that Dr. Howlett listened to, and indicated he would work with staff to improve. I believe him. This was not a pat on the head or brush off.

[...] the physician's assistant was exceptional. She explained everything to me in detail and answered my questions. Dr. Howlett explained what he would do during the surgery. The whole visit was handled very well without long wait times. I felt very secure in having my surgery done.

Text-book successful surgery, excellent outcome.Medical care equal to [...], [...] and other premiere hospitals.shift pass-downs could be reviewed. Viz; nurses were unaware only the surgeoncould open the dressing post surgery. Not critical in my case.

Dr. Howlett and his team provided excellent care. The prognosis of my MRI did not look very promising and though the outcome ended up being the best case scenario, they treated me as if I was their number one priority. I felt as if I was in very good hands.
