What Our Patients Are Saying


Trevor L.

Dr How and his staff were accommodating and caring throughout the process, both before and during my SGB procedure. I definitely had some nerves arise leading up to the procedure and Dr How went out of his way to walk me through things which helped take the edge off. The procedure itself was much more smooth, relaxed and easy than I was expecting. Overall, the communication, care and professionalism I experienced from Dr How and his team was top notch. And I definitely noticed improvement after the procedure which is another step forward in my trauma recovery. Super thankful.

John T.

I just had my first visit with Dr. How and I’m looking forward to working with him to get my back feeling better again! I appreciate how he listened to my concerns, then reassured me that he can help me to achieve my goals. My wife has also been working with Dr. How and has already benefited from his treatments. We have recommended him to a few of our friends!

Aaron T.

Nothing short of amazing. They have so much to offer and Doc How is super cool and incredibly knowledgeable in this field. I’ve been treated for this stuff for years by multiple different docs in multiple states and this is hands down one of the best facilities I’ve ever been to. Any issues you have, they have a solution and remedy for. Get you back to feeling like you. I’m a 17 year prior military and security contractor and my body has been through the ringer. Dr. How and his team have gotten me fixed up in more ways than one. From hormones to stress levels to Nad+ therapy all the way to nervous system treatment. Can’t recommend enough!

Kris R.

On my first visit to Dr. How I was impressed with the time he spent asking many questions about different issues I have going on. He was caring, patient and kind. He came up with a treatment plan that gave me hope for the pain I am going through. His staff are efficient, welcoming and fun. I high;y recommend his practice.
