Dr. Houck\'s NP comes in office almost immediately and done all regarding BP, Meds, etc in preparation for Dr. H. He doesn\'t leave me sitting a long time waiting for. All LAB has been closely scanned/examined by Dr. Houck. He comes in with information from LAB that helps him evaluate my heart health and is ready to give me info/instructions I will need that day or until next visit.

I have had other good experiences at this hospital but the care and attention to detail by the cardiology team was exceptional. Instructions were always clear. Plans were well communicated and well executed. The team for the stress ECHO was caring and professional. Dr. Houck communicated findings immediately and that reduced my worry and stress. Thank you.

Dr. Houck is an exceptional example of a caring and knowledgable physician. He writes notes on a notepad to provide me with his \'take\' on my health and ways to improve it. Can\'t count how many people I have referred to him.
