Dr. Houle and staff at the Orthopedic Center go above and beyond to provide you with excellent healthcare. Wait time in the examination room was somewhat longer today than normal, but I understand other patients are ahead of me and also have their concerns and issues.

Very friendly and knowledgable. He done my second knee replacement and I healed up twice as fast as I did with the first replacement which was done by a different doctor. I am very comfortable with this doctor and would recommend him to anyone.
