Patient Care Profile

Ms. Howell enjoys talking with parents and helping to sort out and triage the specific questions or challenges that they are having with their children or medication issues. Her interest and experience has always been in pediatric nursing especially children with developmental and behavioral issues. She has spent many years in a primary care office and can help parents work thru an issue that may require an evaluation with the child’s primary care provider, especially when it may be contributing to a change in their child’s behavior. 

Unfortunately, Ms. Howell does not get to meet the families that she talks with on the phone, but thinks highly of our families and their ability to care for their children and manage changes that occur.
