Reviews

It has been heartwarming to have an opportunity to meet and to be cared for by Dr Lee Howell! My experience with him and his office has been fabulous! I am located in Austin and approached him(in Houston)for a second opinion via telemedicine and was skeptical how it could work out logistically. I was pleasantly impressed by the kindness and friendliness of his staff, efficiency of the messaging service and I was accommodated for telemedicine immediately. I had undergone a complex medical course with lots of complications including a major abdominal surgery over the last 5 years. Dr Howell patiently listened to my long history, reviewed many reports and imaging and offered me his expertise. I was very impressed by his kindness, empathy, honesty and ability to grasp my concerns and offer practical solutions to my satisfaction. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing colorectal surgery and or consultations!
