Review of Dr. Hougen

-Laurel, MD |

Dr. Hougen saw my son. It was a great visit. He took the time to sit down and chat with him to get to know him before the visit, taking an interest in some of my son's interests. Dr. Hougen examined him quite thoroughly, answering all of our questions and helping us to be comfortable. Great physician with an old school style bedside manner. Absolutely recommended without hesitation!

Review of Dr. Hougen

Dr. Hougen is the best doctor I have ever met. He goes above and beyond for his patients and is always there when needed. I am now and adult who lives out of state and he still always makes it a point to see me when I’m home. I would recommend him to any patient suffering with a heart defect!

Review of Dr. Hougen

-Chevy Chase, MD |

Honestly I felt like he was fatphobic and explained away my concerns (twice) by saying I need to lose weight. While partially true, I've lost a lot of weight and I'm still have my condition. He also suggested that I lose so much weight that I might be considered by some underweight. He suggested that exercise would not help me, only diet would (both things are important). I am certain Dr. Hougen is an excellent cardiologist, but his inability to see past my weight was rather reckless.

We like Dr Hougen and trust him as a doctor, but he sold his practice to Children's Hospital last year and now it's very expensive to see him. We used to pay just a co-pay for the office visit. Now, Children's Hospital also sends a bill for a facility charge. We usually pay a $35 co-pay but this time we also got a $900 bill from Children's Hospital for "facility" charges. It's the same office and same appointment. There are a lot of talented cardiologists in NOVA. This one is now too expensive
