Dr. Houck is absolutely, hands down, the best Dr. I have ever had. If I had done everything he\'s suggested through the years, I\'d probably be in better shape now than before. I feel he looks at the whole person when making decisions. When you meet with him, it is obvious he has reviewed my records and I love that he provides written feedback on the highlights of my visit on tablet paper. His notes include info shared, vitals info, lab results, and recommendations. I don\'t use my time to take my own notes because he shares the written summary with me during the visit, adding to it based on our discussion, and then gives it to me as we close the visit. An absolutely wonderful Dr. with personable bedside manner and honest feedback. I love Dr. Houck!
