Dr Houston is undoubtedly the best opthomologist I've ever been with. I've been treated for various eye issues for several years, throughout the country, and Dr Houston is by far the BEST I've ever been with. Period.

Dr.Houston is really one of the best doctor we have ever known. My husband had a serious problem due to diabetic disease and was treated by Dr. Houston twice in 2018. As we are not native speakers, he tried to explain by one way or another in order for us to understand the best possible. We really appreciate his kindness, his reponsibility, his devotion, his sympathy. Thank you.

The doctor has an excellent professional manner and is easy to talk to. I have had excellent results with my treatment for a torn retina. I would recommend him to anyone I know who needs 1st rate retinal care.

I completely enjoyed my visit with Dr. Houston. He was quite personable/did a great job of explaining the problem with my eyes. My eye doctor recommended him and I would go back if I ever have a problem that requires his attention. There were a lot of people in the waiting room and he handled each case giving everyone the time needed to be sure they understood what their situations were and I really liked that he was not trying to rush us through like cattle. He gets a thumbs up from me.

Dr. Houston first saw my husband in an emergency situation. Not only did he and his staff work as rapidly as possible to minimize the time that my husband spent without any sight but Dr. Houston successfully completed his surgery while explaining exactly what was going to happen and what the likely outcome was going to be. Thanks to Dr.Houston and his staff, we were able to manage through a very emotional situation without undue worry. We will be forever grateful for my husband's sight.

I had an emergency appointment with Dr. Houston & then emergency surgery with Dr. Houston; several follow up appts with him. He always explained in detail; listened to questions & concerns, then took the time to Thoroughly address everything -- still does that at each follow up. The STAFF in Lake Mary & Orlando offices are exactly the caliber of support people I'd like to find in every practice.
