I recommend Dr Houri to everyone I know. He honestly is the best doctor I have ever had (and I have had quite a few!). He takes the time to listen, explains everything in a way that is catered to the patient, and is extremely knowledgeable.

A very unique, and thorough doctor indeed! Unlike most of the doctors out there it seems these days, Dr. Houri is kind, compassionate, and explains things to a T. He takes the time to sit down and go through test results and concerns one by one. He encourages to asks questions, and has never been annoyed or bothered by questions and concerns. He truly is one of a kind and I would highly recommend him to ANYONE! Simply just an AMAZING, intelligent doctor!

My experience was not good at all, I went with a very bad pain in my lower back and in my arm, told dr I was taking pills myself for that horrible pain. Dr sent me to my house with vitamins after 2 weeks I received an order for blood lab test and not xray for my back or my arm. Sent an email letting him know I am still in pain, never received an immediate answer, after 2 weeks I received a mail stating that everything looks normal. The staff never answers the phone everything go to voicemail.

This doctor is by far the kindest most caring doctor that I have met with. Dr. Houri explains all conditions in a way that everyone can understand. He takes patients comfort into consideration when discussing treatment options. I am very pleased with the office workers and the nurses. They are caring and compassionate. I only wish all of my doctors were like Dr Houri.
What a rare find in a doctor! This doctor listens and follows up after visit. Office staff is superior to the staff at any fine hotel. Manager is right across the hall from desk where appointment is made and she is ready to jump in and offer extra help to staff when needed. At my visit the girl was new and couldn't find an information packet on my condition (polymyalgia). The manager overheard and right away printed me up the information and came over and gave it to me. I am very pleased.
