This man truly cares about his patients. He is extremely passionate about what he does. He is honestly one of the best surgeons I’ve had. EVER! In my top 2. He has saved my life on 2 occasions. If you are looking to have this surgery, it is a tough road, but worth it and he is the one I would recommend to anyone. He is very intentional about everything. And it all comes from the love that he has for his craft. Hands down, it’s Hugh Houston that is the Dr. for the job! You’ll be in the best hands! And his team that works with him, are the most compassionate. I’ve never been to a Dr. office where I felt so loved and accepted for me, and supported. Sammy and Kristen are the SWEETEST. The dietitian,Margo, AMAZING! They all truly care!

Dr Houston is a professional that lacks completely of bedside manners. He might be wonderful in other thing but it seams he only cares about getting paid not treating the patient in a right way.

I had a vsg ten years ago. My insurance wouldn't cover it so I paid $20 grand cash. I did follow up several times and then went on with my life, 50 lbs lighter. Lately I have been having some troubles with my esophagus/vomiting/food getting stuck so I called his office. The young girl told me that since I hadn't seen him in several years he wouldn't see me because I was a "non compliant" patient since I hadn't been going in for checkups every year. Simple answer: my mom came down with dementia a

Dr Houston is an excellent surgeon. I highly recommend him for anyone interested in having weight loss surgery. He and his staff are wonderful! They go above and beyond to help you succeed! No other facility offers the after care programs that Centennial has. They are the best in my opinion.
