Flu shots now available

Flu shots are now available in the office.  Please call the office to schedule an appointment.

The Centers for Disease Control recommends getting the flu shot each year, as soon as it is available.  http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/keyfacts.htm

The CDC also advises NOT to use the nasal spray preparation of the flu vaccine for this flu season.  http://www.cdc.gov/flu/index.htm


Dr. Howe will retire on October 31, 2016

To My Patients:

It has been my pleasure to care for you and your families over the past 35 years. It is with eager anticipation tinged with some wistfulness that I am announcing my retirement from Fox Mill Family Practice and from the practice of medicine on October 31, 2016.

Fox Mill Family Practice has always worked as a group practice and not a collection of individual physician practices, and as a group will continue to care for you and your family. I can recommend all of my partners for your care. After all, I did hire them. All of your medical records will continue to be on file here. If you decide to find a new physician outside of our practice, we will forward your records to your new provider upon receipt of a record release form, as required by privacy law. If you have any questions, please contact Anne Lowe, our office manager, at 703 476-1050.

It has been my great pleasure to meet with all of you through the years. This has truly been a family practice as I have seen multiple generations of many of my patient families. I am honored to have been chosen as your physician and wish you continuing health and happiness.



Allen K. Howe Jr. M.D.
