We have been seeing Dr. Houk since my daughter Abbey was diagnosed with T1D at 21 months of age. My youngest daughter Hailey was diagnosed at 8 years old and is now 11. We love Dr. Houk and his staff and actually followed him when he left Savannah to Augusta. It is a 2 hour drive and you may have a wait sometimes but he is well worth the wait. He is a very patient and caring Endocrinologist who has kept my girls out of the hospital more times than I can even recall. I wish that all doctors showed as much compassion for their patients as he has for my girls and our family. I would recommend him to anyone in need a an Endocrinologist that really CARES.

My son has been seeing Dr. Houk for the past eight years. We LOVE him!! He may run a little late but that is because he treats his patients like they are the only one he has! He has always answered our questions and has given our son the best care. We highly recommend him!

Very nice, clear, direct and open. Spent good amount of time and focused on the important aspects for my son. His job is almost as much psychology as endocrinology and he was very reassuring and comforting.
