Incompetent, God Complex, does not listen to patients and talks down to them! Misdiagnosed me and ignored my pleas for help! Everything I told him fit the textbook symptoms of my medical diagnosis that another Dr found through MRI with contrast. Dr Houser could have easily preformed this test but dismissed me and failed to properly diagnose my medical condition that is very common and with his training and years of experience should have been an easy diagnosis to make from the list of my sympto

Dr Houser will actually listen to you before explaining why you should do what he's recommending. He's kind and considerate and thorough. He also takes the time to explain what's going on with your body and how you can correct the situation or how to keep it from getting worse. He will listen to all your concerns and makes sure that you understand it all. I definitely would recommend him to anyone of my friends and family.

I had gone to him for years, had to stop due to loss of my insurance coverage. I have insurance again, started back seeing him. He has been great as before. Listens to me and how I am feeling.
