Review of Dr. Houchens

-Carmel , IN |

Dr. Houchens has to be the most lazy uncaring doctor I have ever had for my medical care. She is to lazy to do her own homework on a medical condition that her colleague diagnosed me with while she was on maternity leave. I expressed something was still wrong and she told me to just keep taking a high dose of naproxen and hurried me out her office! I had to go to ER and get myself a more higher quality primary care physician. Please do yourself a favor and find better!

Review of Dr. Houchens

- in IN |

I have been a patient of Dr. Houchens for three years. Dr. Houchens takes the time to listen to my concerns and never seems rushed. I find her to be incredibly trustworthy and knowledgeable.

Review of Dr. Houchens

-Indianapolis, IN |

Called the office to see Dr Houchens with a pinched nerve in my neck and severe pain running down my arm. I am not one to call the doctor every time something hurts but after hurting everyday for over a month-finally called the doctor. I was told no appointments are available until the end of April-this was the 10th of March. I was told to go to an Immediate Care facility for help. I then called the office to get the results and was told again to call the Immediate Care facility. No Help!

Review of Dr. Howse

- in Greenfield, IN |

Dr. Howse has been our family doctor since just after my son was born almost 17 years ago. When he moved from the southside to the northside, we followed him even though it is now almost an hour to drive to his office. I couldn't imagine having a different doctor. He is knowledgeable, compassionate and personable. I would recommend Dr. Howse to anyone who wants a good doctor. I trust Dr. Howse with my life, but more importantly, with my son's life. He is great!

Review of Dr. Houchens


Support staff and nurses are outstanding, office is clean and pleasant, wait time is not bad at all. However, we have no confidence or trust in provider and believe she is too inexperienced to be our primary care provider any longer. We don't believe she can accurately diagnose issues because of her inexperience. She is polite and friendly, but the trust is just not there.

Review of Dr. Houchens

- in Carmel, IN |

Dr Houchen does not properly address concerns in a timely manner, if she's even in the office and not yet again on vacation. I have been dismissed while having a medical emergency aMD ended up in the 3 months and 2 specialists later, I'm having to get a new primary care doctor because she continues to ignore a serious health condition that needs addressed promptly. Very unprofessional.

Review of Dr. Howse

- in Indianapolis, IN |

I have been a patient of his for over 10 years. He is an excellent Doctor and I would trust him completely with my life. He is caring, compassionate and listens to you. He does not order unnecessary tests, but when they are needed he always does. He works hard to heal or make his patients quality of life better. I would recommend him to anyone.
