Dr. Houston is insightful and one of the smartest men I've ever met! He was life-changing for my son finding a problem with his adenoids that was dripping into his lungs. After years of being sick my son Daniel is now healthy!I encouraged my daughter to bring my grandson there!

Rude, arrogant, an absolute jerk. Talks over you as you ask questions. Gives patronizing answers with the most ridiculous metaphors. Is late and then barely spends any time examining you.
