Dr. Howrey is a physician’s physician. He says that at Cook Children's, "My colleagues and I are able to focus on patients. We can fully engage. This is not an academic institution. This is a place for children, some of them very sick, to get well."

Playing with kids, being with kids, having permission to be a kid, are what attracted him to pediatrics.

How much does Dr. Howrey love medicine and his role as a pediatric hematologist/oncologist at Cook Children’s Hospital? When asked what he would do if he won the lottery, he replied, "I'd still be doing exactly this, I'd just not be doing it on holidays and weekends."

Dr. Howrey is orginally from Michigan where, he says, "The sun never shined. I love Texas, the sun always shines here." As former Division 3 competitive swimmer, he really enjoys the sunshine and still finds time to swim.

He and his wife have three teenagers of their own, and what he's learned as both a father and doctor are that, "A good sense of humor is imperative to working with kids today."
