Did a great job for me,
in North Royalton, OH |
I think Dr. Houser is competent, but I was rushed through my visit, and he had nothing to offer for the problem I came in for. He also didn't let me know that a procedure he did in the office would incur significant charges. I would never go back to him, because Metro charges hospital fees in addition to doctor's fees, so I paid a lot of a fruitless visit. Also, it's impossible to call the Dr.'s office; you have to call a generic Metro answering service if you have a question.
Dr houser has taken care of our 6 year old since she was 3....he is gentle, caring and compassionate. He explains everything thoroughly so you can understand and takes time to answer your questions!!
