Dr. Howard did pancreatic sx on me and 3 days after surgery had severe chest pain. He refused to order any cardiac testing or call in a cardiologist. One week after discharge ended up in local ER. Had indeed had a heart attack and had two heart surgeries. My whole life has changed. If he had called in a cardiologist or done a simple blood test, he would have known I had had a heart attack and my outcome would have been extremely different. His response when asked to order an EKG or Echo was ""What are you going to do with it when you get it?"" Stay as far away from this guy as you can.
