Dr Housser is fantastic. My nephew is deaf and has seizures. He has helped him so much, and we are so grateful. He is easy to talk to and we would highly recommend him.
Wow! Outstanding Doctor! Extremely attentive, caring, and thorough. He's the best neurologist on the Northshore.

My husband saw Dr Houser today for an evaluation. This doctor is amazing. He is very pleasant and he did a complete exam and answered all of our questions.

Got an appt. after serious life threatening neurological symptoms. He entered, began typing feverishly from the standard form I had filled. Asked some questions about the symptoms. Said he had never heard of that group of symptoms, (eyes not focusing, severe headache, unable to converse sensibly, nightmares). These are all over the net. Abruptly, said I don't know her problem, no diagnosis. Do I need another appt. I asked? No diagnosis, no nothing except charges for the visit. No interest

Very personal and caring. Very little waiting time and his diagnosis ( different from two other doctors ) saved my life.

He is an outstanding doctor! He spent a very long time with me and examined me very well. He has a great bed side manner and he felt like a friend. He explained his treatment plan and the goal. I enjoyed my appointment and I have a lot of trust in him!

I wasted many years with Oschner and Other Neurological Doctors trying get help with Horrible Migraines and Headaches.After many years All I got was Mis-Diagnosed,and Doctors wanting to just give me pills.I needed a Caring Physician,Diagnosis,and a Treatment plan,My Spouse Who also is in The Medical Field Told me that he hears a lot of wonderful feedback about Dr.J.Houser from patients.Now He My Doc?

He was so attentive to my mothers needs. Caring, educated, funny and thorough!! We were so stunned when we left his office. After seeing numerous doctors to find out what was going on with my mother, he really knew what it was. We loved him! But especially MY MOM loved him!!
