Patient Comments (6)
Indianapolis, IN |
Very rude, self centered, no bed side manner, arrogant. I don't care how good of a surgeon you are if you act like this and your team does not work with you than your not any good to us! You need to be polite listen to your patent and their family. I would never recommend you to any one!!!

Dr. House was the surgeon chosen by another doctor. At the first visit I was very comfortable with him. He is warm, kind, efficient, and very knowledgeable. He ordered all my pre-op tests the same day that I saw him. Since I was from out of town that was a tremendous help for me. After surgery he gave me phone numbers for help if needed at home for all hours. I did very well after surgery. Great care!

I was referred to Dr. House for a liver resection. Good comfortable relationship. The surgery itself went fine, although my liver was much more damaged than thought. Surgery ended up being 8 vs 4 hours. I'm only alive because of his, the surgical team, and nursing staffs skills at Indiana University Health Center. My PCP and 2 other experts told me I would not be alive if Dr.House had not been the surgeon. He said I was one of the top 5 most difficult surgeries he has done.

Great professionally and down to earth.
