Dr. Anthony Howe

After pre-med at Hamilton College in upstate New York, I moved to Ireland and attended the Royal College of Surgeons (despite its name, it graduates general physicians with rotations in all the specialties just like an American Medical School) followed by a residency at Albert Einstein in New York City.

I then did fellowship in Microbiology and immunology at UCLA before moving to the Santa Ynez Valley and opening a practice with my wife- also a pediatrician. I’ve practiced here since, joining the Tribal Health family 12 years ago, whilst retaining my office in Solvang.
