I will say, before my procedures, I read these reviews and was a bit concerned about seeing Dr. Houghton. However, all of the negative reviews were about "attitude" not her skills as a doctor. I wasn't going in for my upper endoscopy and colonoscopy to make friends. I was going because I had some problems that needed to be addressed. With that said, upon arrival at the 21 Eastern Ave. location, from the intake in the reception area to discharge, I was treated very well. Everyone was kind an

500 characters is not nearly enough to express my awful experience. Dr. Houghton did not take my issues seriously whatsoever. She dismissed everything I said and did ZERO tests on me. I told her that I’m consistently bloated and feel bad all the time. Her response was “yeah that’s not bloating - maybe you should lose 3-4 lbs and if that doesn’t work you could get liposuction. I was floored by her responses and left the office in tears. She has NO bedside manners and is down right rude.

I am told by my Primary Care Physician that the awful diarrhea and constipation I have experienced since the first part of May could be - and I emphasize that it could've been - so I cannot say all of that was a result of the colonoscopy I had with Ms. Houghton but she has yet to return another phone call where I did share the theory my PCP has yet she does have 28 years of experience so it was not because she was not gentle. You will have to weigh your options and do the math.
