Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

She was very attentive and caring, everything you would want in a GYN, and she gave me great feedback on symptoms that other doctors weren't able to do. (Thanks to her, I scheduled my first colonoscopy and made sense of some nagging health mysteries!) I am very happy that I found her and will fight to keep her as my doctor.

This was my first patient visit. Dr Houck's receptionist was the best I have ever conversed over the phone. I felt heard, understood and not rushed. Staff is polite and professional. The office ran efficiently, but I did not feel like a number, at all. Dr Houck addressed all my concerns and answered my questions. After 4 years of asking other doctors, (as a former RN), I finally received adequate answers, explained with knowledge and plain language. I feel confident in the care I will receive.

I would not recommend this doctor at all. I had forgotten to refill my prescription with the new year and had to call the on call physician, Dr. Houck because it was Sunday, to receive a one time refill so I would not have to take my medication late. She would not refill it, even though I have seen my primary doctor recently and have been on this medication for 5 years. She actually hung up on me and refused my follow up calls. Absolutely rude and unprofessional.

Short wait in the waiting room maybe 5 mins. Staff is friendly and helpful. Dr. Houck always has time for any questions. I love the after care patient conference in her personal office! Very cool.
