A likeable and knowledgeable doctor but he seriously overbooks. A wait of 2 hours is common. However, recently I had to wait for 5 hours for the results of a skin biopsy. He does the procedures in batches so if you are the first person in the batch of 6 or so, you don't get the results until a six are finished. Tomorrow I have stitches out. I will report on how long it takes.

Dr. Houck’s level of compassion is outstanding. He always takes the time to not only explain my diagnoses, but also to inquire about my family. He and his staff provide top notch dermatological care!

I would strongly look for another dermatologist if you can. My mother-in-law went through months of agony because he told her she had scabies when it was a form of eczema. For months this poor woman of 76 yrs old had to endure the constant itching and washing of her clothes, towels and sheets every day. I went with her to her doctor visits... waiting for 1 hour and 45 minutes. Then he looked at the patches (did not even touch her) - said the tests were not conclusive and to continue with the

Dr. Houck has always been personable with me. I usually see Allison Lee for check-ups and minor issues, and she is very professional in her interactions and at the same time carries an assuring comfort factor that can be lacking in some medical offices. Staff has been great and scheduling is accommodable. For me, his/her services are well worth any unfortunate wait time.

I was a first time patient. The wait time was an hour. Staff spent more time with me than Dr. Houck. The Dr. was rude, impatient and disrespectful. During checkout I was overcharged, as it was minutes before the office was due to close. After billing correction, my prescription was sent to a pharmacy of my choice. The pharmacy did not receive the script. I called Houck's office, spoke to his answering service three times while waiting an hour. I gave up and went home.

Dont question him as a dr ... question him as a person. I was refered & ghastly disappointed. He is arrogant & does not like being questioned. Didnt even talk directly to me & refused to share my test results.

Specifically their aesthetic services are phenomenal. Kellie is extremely knowledgeable and has completely transformed my skin after all of the damage from the cystic acne scars. Her recommendations are spot on and she is driven to help find the regimen that will make your skin it's best. I can't say enough!

I thought I had made an appointment to actually see the doctor, not his nurse. Dr. Houck runs three offices, all staffed five days a week. He spends little time in each office. Conceivable, you could go to his office for some time and never meet the doctor. What a money machine!

I have been seeing Dr. Houck for the last 8+ years; yesterday was my last day waiting and waiting in his lobby. Through the course of the last several visits I have had to wait longer and longer to see the doctor; past my appointment time. I am a businessman and repeatedly advise the reception person that I have limited time as I have clients myself that have appointments that I will not be late for; in my office. After sitting 30 minutes past the appointment time I walked out.
