I first went to the Howard Center because I found out I was pregnant and spotting. Right from the off, when I'd been scheduled for my first appointment, the office staff was rude because I wasn't eight weeks. They only saw me in the first place (note, I had an appointment) because I was spotting.

They did an ultrasound and claimed they saw the flutter of a heartbeat and that everything looked fine, but wanted me to get blood drawn that weekend and flat out turned up their nose at the fact that I wouldn't be having it done at Tift Regional (I would be in Dodge Co at the time).

The next appointment a week later, they told me I'd had a miscarriage and wanted to schedule me for a D&C right then and there. I let them schedule it and skipped the appointment, because something didn't feel right. Boy, I'm glad I trusted my gut.

Turns out, there was no heartbeat. I'd had a chemical pregnancy - where the egg was fertilized and no baby forms - and they flat out lied about the heartbeat and treated me roughly at my second appointment. Would not recommend. They don't have concern for their patients, only how much money they can squeeze from them.

And for the record, the D&C was needless. I passed it just fine on my own. They were playing with my future fertility, and I'll be gosh-darned before they see a red cent from me. They're lucky I don't sue.

I saw Dr. Howard and his staff while I was pregnant with my son in 2010, I had heard great things about their office. The office staff is very nice but the nurse assistant was very rude to both me and my fiance who came to my appointments with me. When I was 35 weeks I moved back to my hometown of Tampa and started seeing a new doctor. I told her that my previous doctor (dr. howard) had wanted to induce me 3 weeks before my due date, she told me that she didn't know why he would want to induce me so early considering that I was measuring small for my due date (which was news to me, no one at Dr. Howard's office had ever said anything) She ordered me for an ultrasound the next morning and diagnosed me with Intrauterine Growth Restriction (baby in less than 10th percentile for growth). They induced me a week before my due date because he wouldn't grow anymore and wouldnt benefit from another week in the womb. He was only 5 pounds at 39 weeks and Im scared to know what might have happened if I would have stayed in Dr. Howard's care. He wanted me to deliever at Irwin Hospital which does NOT have a NICU and my son would have been underweight...... Who's knows what could have happened. I advise everyone to go somewhere else, these people are too quick to induce you and may cause your baby harm!

I was so skeptical before I contacted you guys, that's why I'm actually writing this. My expectations for this service were extremely high, due to the fact that I just didn't have a lot (any) of extra money to pay for this type of service.I researched your company, as well as many others, and one thing that I found is that nobody had a perfect track record of making every single client happy, but that's really to be expected as you can't always make everyone happy.

My expectations again were very high, and you exceeded them. That's a difficult task, but the least i can do is let others know how good you did for me. I'm not sure that I can really thank you enough for how you've helped me. I was so nervous that before we finalized things with the IRS I was having a hard time sleeping. That's not the case any more. I am sleeping like a baby now and know that my paychecks are protected. The service that you provided to me was nothing short of incredible. Most of all you didn't leave me in the dark. You kept in touch with me throughout and always kept things moving forward to resolve these issues.

Thank you

I'm writing this testimonial, because I was really leery about paying a company tons of money to help me with my IRS issue. My expectations for this service were extremely high, due to the fact that I just didn't have a lot (any) of extra money to pay for this type of service.I researched your company, as well as many others, and one thing that I found is that nobody had a perfect track record of making every single client happy, but that's really to be expected as you can't always make everyone happy.

You did a much better job than I really was expecting. Exceeding my expectations isn't easy, so I want to write this to let others know that you're a legit business and can help. Writing this, I'm hoping will help your company out. This is my sincere form of a thank you for all you've done for me. I was so nervous that before we finalized things with the IRS I was having a hard time sleeping. That's not the case any more. I am sleeping like a baby now and know that my paychecks are protected. The service that you provided to me was nothing short of incredible. I really appreciate how you kept in touch with me throughout and helped me and my family resolve our issues.

Thank you

Dr. Drew Howard is awesome!! He takes time to get to know each & every one of his patients, what they need, and the care he shows to each one of them is AMAZING!! He is INCREDIBLE!!
I had a daughter that was born in fl. & got pregnant when I moved to Ga. I was told that I "HAD TO DELIVER MY SON @ PHOEBE PUTNEY MEM. HOSP.". Because I didnt know any better, I stayed there, (even though the "care" that I received, I wouldnt even give to a RAT). A Dr. from Phoebe delivered my son, (and that visit- having my baby- was the last straw)!! I went in on Valentines day & he made me wait, (in HARD LABOR) because he & his wife didnt want to be bothered on that day & they werent going to let me "ruin" their plans & vacation!! When they got there the day after, he checked me, & I was 8cm dialated. He said when I dialate to 10cm, he would pop my water. 10cm came & went & he said "Im not gonna pop your water- you will have to wait".
15-20 seconds later it popped. They took their sweet time comming to break down the table & deliver. GUESS WHAT HAPPENED NEXT... THEY NEVER WASHED THEIR HANDS, DELIVERED MY SON, WOULDNT LET MY HUSBAND CUT THE CORD, & LAST, BUT NOT LEAST, WENT RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO THE NEXT PATIENT, (WITH OUT WASHING THEIR HANDS-AGAIN) & THEN DELIVERED THEIR BABY!!! That was the last straw, & I found Dr. Drew Howard & he was & is a god sent angel!!
He is the absolute BEST IVE EVER MET, DEALT WITH, & DIDNT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE HEALTH OF ME & MY YOUNGEST SON (THE ONE HE DELIVERED).
IF I COULD DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN, WITH ALL MY KIDS, I WOULD, WITH DR. HOWARD ONLY!!
THANK-YOU FOR LISTENING, & IF YOUR IN GA. MAKE THE RIGHT & SAFEST CHOICE, WHEN IT COMES TO YOU & THAT INNOCENT BEING INSIDE YOU!!!
CHOOSE TO BE TAKEN CARE OF BY DR. DREW HOWARD!!
HE IS THE BEST & THE SAFEST!!!

Dr. Howard (both Dr. Drew and Dr. Kaylar) saw me during my recent pregnancy. I have never known more caring and compassionate doctors. At no point during my experience with the Howards I felt as If I was not receiving the utmost care. Dr. Drew performed my (repeat) C-section and Dr. Kaylar visit me shortly after. In answer to one of the previous comments: yes, sometimes I had to wait but the reason is simple, there are many people who realize the quality of the doctors and the care they can receive and therefore, like a great restaurant, sometimes there is a wait but it is worth it.

My experience was horrible to say the least. The one star is granted to the nurses for their kind service. Everyone else needs a reality check! Dr. K Howard is rude and impersonal, while Dr. D Howard is trying to make the most money out of every patient. He tries to schedule patient's due dates so he can perform them since he only delivers on 3 out of the 7 days of the week. They use countless needless interventions to "care" for mother and child, but once again, needless. The secretarial staff is rude as well. Eight months after delivery I am still trying to get them to answer the phone and answer some questions about a mystery billing I have been recieving! Tons of calls and voice-mails later, I now find out I have been reported by them to the credit bureau!

I absutely was mislead intirely about the procedure I was having and the hospital that it was performed at. The doctor actually LYED to me about the place that he performed the hystorectomy. Told me it was a 'womens specialty clinic'
Thats what he called 'Irwin county hospital' which is where he does some of his procedures. Now its a little too late for me, BUT please be VERY careful about what your getting yourself into here!
I have been told lies and basically ignored since my surgery.
Such a shame that i thought i could trust this man.
The alarms should have went off in my head when I met his Nurse practioner or P.A. whichever she is.
SHE is VERY self centered and rude to say the least. Maybe thats part of why the staff there had such a nasty attitude as well. If i had to work around her i would hate my job too.

I totally agree with the other posts here.
I am one week out of surgery for a hysterectomy.Dr. Drew and staff are great.This rating would have actually been a 5 star rating if one staff member there had not ruined my entire experience with this establishment.The 'nurse practioner' Bonnie? I believe her name is. She unfortunately just does not have the same attitude and friendliness about her as the rest of the staff. Its a shame really because one person with a 'smaller step up the scale position' CAN indeed turn someone away from an otherwise very professional and friendly atmosphere.
Especially if you have to go there not knowing if you will have to see the person, that you normally would absolutely dread having to come in contact with.I will probably be changing doctors soon due to the NP that I end up having to deal with instead of the wonderful doctors that are there. Its really a shame when someone lets a position 'go to their head.'

Dr. Drew and his wonderful staff LISTENED to me, and carefully explained to me how best to fix my women's health issues, and considered what I had to say about the whole process. How incredibly empowering! I left another practice for this office, and do not regret it. I cannot recommend them highly enough - they are careful, efficient, knowledgeable, concerned and caring, and I received great care during my surgery and recovery. I feel better than I have in years.

The Howard Center is a great choice for anyone in the Tifton area looking for a good OB/GYN during their pregnancy. The staff was always very helpful and knowledgeable.

The staff at The Howard Center is absolutely amazing. I went through a very difficult twin pregnancy. The staff made me feel as though I were their only patient. They always took the extra time to reassure me and listen to my concerns. There is no other!

Dr. Kaylor and Drew Howard delivered my daughter and I am so happy with them and my care. Very friendly and professional staff. The nurses treat you like they've known you forever. The CNP's on staff are the greatest and so friendly and gentle. Beautiful office. They are real busy most of the time so the waiting room time is usually long but it's well worth it for the quality of care that you get.
