What People Say About Dr. Andrew Hou, MD
Reply
Dr. Hou is a kind and patient doctor. He treated my low back pain and gave me a steroid injection which helped me return to working and playing golf. I'm also able to garden again without any pain! If you're having any back pain, you should definitely make an appointment to see him. You will NOT regret it.
