Shawn Howland

Bio

Dr. Shawn Howland is a board certified Emergency Medicine Physician, MD, graduating from University of Florida College of Medicine in 1995. I recently opened a side practice called Oceanside Suboxone Treatment, located at 758 Eddy Street, Suite 300, Providence, RI 02903, just 30 seconds from routes 95 and 195. The practice is an Urgent care center. Also, I obtained governmental training and subsequently became certified as an addiction medicine Physician in order to treat Opioid addiction with suboxone, Subutex, Sublocade and Vivitrol. Also, I have a strong passion for diet and exercise and run a prescription weight loss practice. Finally, I follow the American Urologic Association to perform a complete evaluation for testosterone replacement therapy which includes obtaining and analyzing blood work in house . We utilize electronic records and take literally all Rhode Island insurance meaning you rarely pay out of pocket.

  • KYLE Jul 12, 2021
  • ‘Dr. Shawn Howland is extremely knowledgeable, cordial, accommodating, and has a calming, down to earth way about him that is particularly helpful for new patients. The office itself maintains a constant stream of communications and reminders, which is especially useful for someone like me (who tends to forget dates, appointments for anything, etc.) and thus far there is no waiting period; you are seen within 10 minutes of arrival, another welcomed and refreshing change. All in all, HIGHLY recommend’
