Patient Comments (14)
Salt Lake City, UT |
She is a good family Dr. She see both my kids and myself.
Midvale |
I have never been treated so rudely in my life by a doctor. She was very dismissive and condescending. I was instantly judged by her and treated like trash. I will never be able to open up to her and trust her to take care of me. I could never put my "life" in her hands. The amazing reviews have to be left by staff or herself. Trust the people who say she's brash and do yourself a favor, find another doctor who sees you as a human and actually cares about you.
Taylorsville, Utah |
Dr. Hougaard is an exceptional doctor. She is very knowledgeable and thorough. She is fairly young but still has extensive experience. It is fairly easy to schedule an appointment with her. The staff are personable, and the facility is easy to get to. The lab is very good and opens at 8 am if you are fasting. I have been seeing Dr. Hougaard for 10 years, and would not think of changing. I am very satisfied and happy with her. The nursing staff are professional and friendly. Try her.

I saw Dr. Hougaard today to establish care. It took almost 30 minutes for her to see me and when she did...ooph. She is not friendly at all. Tried to ask about how her vacation yet (front desk said she was gone on one when I called to schedule) and I got a pretty cold response. Tried cracking a couple small jokes during visit to warm up the room and still nada. The rest of the staff is friendly so I will be requesting a different provider next time. She is just not for me.

Dr Hoogard's clinic let me know that I needed to schedule an appointment for follow up lab work. She then took the time to review my lab work and explain the numbers to me. I have never felt she has tried to rush me through my appointment.

I recently became a patient of Dr. Joni Hougaard, and I was very pleased with our initial visit. She reviewed all of my medical information with me, and asked many questions in order to clearly understand any issues I may have. Her explanations were clear and easy for a non-medical person like myself to understand.
in Salt Lake City, UT |
I had to see Dr Hougaard for several issues, since doctors at Jordan Family Health keep leaving (I wonder why). I had to wait almost an hour to get in. As a result, Hougaard was in a hurry and made me feel rushed and like I was inconveniencing her. I did not like her attitude or demeanor at all, nor the fact that she prescribed some "experimental" medications: I'm not a guinea pig! I went home, read the side effects and they were awful. I'll never go back. Avoid her like the plague.
Our practice truly values your feedback, and we are sorry to hear about this experience. Please contact our practice manager, Shannon at 801-569-1999 so that we may work to make the situation better. Thank you.

I have been seeing Dr. Hougaard for several years. She took over on my care when Dr. Kirstein retired. I don't like change; however, Dr. Hougaard is wonderful! She is thorough, concise and has a great sense of humor. She is a great doctor and I will continue to see her. Also, her nursing staff is outstanding. Especially Kate. She is great.

Dr. Joni has been my primary care doctor for almost 20 years. She is caring, compassionate yet tough when she needs to be. She discusses my health with me and lets me know all the options and we decide together on my care. Recently, my Health Insurance informed me that they would no longer cover my visits because they were no longer on their plan. I still go to see Dr. Joni because of the fantastic care I receive by not only the doctor, but staff. I can't recommend this office highly enough

I have been very pleased with Dr. Hougarrd. I feel like I can discuss anything with her. Even though she is busy she still takes the time to listen and has your best interest at heart. I also like the way Dr. Hougarrd explains my symptoms to me so I understand what she is talking about. The staff at Jordan Family Health is friendly and courteous and patient. The office is very clean and comfortable. I have never had to wait very long to get in to see someone. I like their hours.

I've seen her twice for two different things and I left there both times feeling angry and dissatisfied. Dr. Hougaard is so rude and condescending. Her nurse is rude and impatient. I will never visit her or this office again.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Our goal is to deliver exceptional care and service at every visit. We are concerned about your visit while in our care and would like to speak to you further. Please contact the practice manager, Shannon Nichols at 801-676-4215 or at Shannon.Nichols@hcahealthcare.com.

This lady needs to go back to medical school. She has a terrible bed side manner and she gave me a EKG because I was having shortness of breath and coughing. She told me my EKG was fine! Within in the next few days I was in the emergency room and I had to have 3 stents. Have seen her a few times and she is just so cold and distant. Would not recommend her to anyone.
We are very sorry to hear of your recent negative experience. We strive at Jordan Family Health to earn your loyalty and trust. We are constantly striving to improve and appreciate the feedback you have given us. I would be happy to discuss this matter further with you please reach out to me at (801)569-1999.

Horrible bedside manner, didn't take my issues seriously. I felt like she was doing me a favor by seeing me and that I was wasting her time. I left feeling worse.
in West Jordan, UT |
Always feel comfortable speaking with Dr. Hougaard about anything. She never rushes me, hears what I am trying to say & understands me. She always explains things thoroughly & answers my questions. I wish I had found her sooner.
