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.
Our practice aims to deliver the highest quality patient care. We love to hear about these positive experiences. Thanks for sharing this feedback with us!

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.

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.
