In honor of Veterans Day, we are sharing stories of our amazing doctors who have served as members of the U.S. military. These veterans now dedicate their time to treating our patients at Columbia Skin Clinic. We thank them for their service and appreciate everything they do for our patients every day.

Dr. Howell militaryBefore medical school, Dr. Seth Howell obtained a graduate degree in Administrative Leadership from the University of Oklahoma. While attending college, he served as a pilot and captain in the U.S. Air Force, where he logged over 500 combat flight hours.

Dr. Howell was awarded military honors for his service, including the Afghanistan and Iraq Campaign Medal, the Air Medal with 3 Oak Leaf Clusters and the Air Force Commendation Medal. He later graduated from the University of South Carolina School of Medicine. He completed his training in dermatology at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, where he served as Chief Resident and resident liaison for the Women’s Dermatologic Society and the American Society for Laser Medicine Surgery. 

A native South Carolinian, Dr. Howell was happy to return home after moving several times for active-duty military service. “The best part of my day is learning about each patient’s unique background and life experiences,” he says. “Columbia Skin Clinic truly cultivates a culture of patient-centered care.”

Dr. Howell sees patients at the Columbia and Camden offices. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Howell.
