Howard Horowitz, DPM

Dr. Horowitz' "holistic" philosophy of podiatric medicine is integral to his practice: the foot's function must be viewed in relation to whole body mechanics, and this relationship serves as the starting point to understanding his patients' foot pathology and symptoms. Over the years, this philosophy has guided his patient care and continuing professional education.

Dr. Horowitz has been practicing in the Bowie area for over 25 years. He graduated from the Illinois College of Podiatric Medicine with a Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine and did his postgraduate training in podiatric medicine and surgery in association with the Podiatry Group of Greater New York and the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. Dr. Horowitz remained in New York for an additional two years to practice with several of his training program's attending doctors in order to further hone his medical and surgical skills. Dr. Horowitz continues to expand his knowledge in podiatric medicine, in an effort to bring advances in treatment and technology to his patients.

Dr. Horowitz arrived in Washington metro area in 1986 and established Bowie Foot And Ankle later that year. He quickly joined the staff at the newly opened Bowie Health Center Surgery Center. Dr. Horowitz enjoys the general nature of his practice and sees patients of all ages with a variety of foot problems. He especially enjoys dealing with the orthopedic nature of many podiatric problems, whether they be of recent onset or long standing. He has found that chronic problems affecting the ankle, knee, hip or back, can often be traced to recent symptoms within the foot, or vice versa.
