About Gayle Howard, MD

I became an ophthalmologist because, while I love the ability to perform surgery and help someone's vision, I also wanted to develop long-term relationships with patients through nonsurgical care. Our eye care team strives to provide excellent care with a personal touch in an efficient and friendly setting. We try to take into consideration those personal characteristics of each patient and direct the best care possible for them to maintain a lifetime of great vision. In my spare time, I enjoy singing with a rock band and traveling to different places on cruises. My children are, of course, a huge source of pride for me and they keep me busy with many activities.
