Oak Forest, IL |
It was not a good experience at all. He was condescending to my me and my 8yr old son. He did not believe the severity of pain my son was having everyday. It felt like we were being brushed off. No Stars

Amazing urologist, my VERY young daughter has experienced chronic UTIs and Kidney infections starting at just 7 months old and went on until almost 2 while trying to find the right specialist to find out what was going on. Dr. Houston had met with us just a couple of times and while she required surgery with him, he took such great care of my daughter! She is now almost 4 and has not had an issue since! He's very friendly and just simply amazing! HIGHLY recommend!
