Not only am I satisfied with his manner I am impressed. He came in the room looked introduced himself sat down with his papers to review what my records said then he started by asking me what was going on with me. He was very attentive then he did a complete exam. I have not seen that complete of an exam since I was thought to do it at Charity Nursing School. I can not say enough about how thorough he was not rushed and on the money with his opinion. Hard to find a Doctor like him.

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.

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

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!!
