Honestly I felt like he was fatphobic and explained away my concerns (twice) by saying I need to lose weight. While partially true, I've lost a lot of weight and I'm still have my condition. He also suggested that I lose so much weight that I might be considered by some underweight. He suggested that exercise would not help me, only diet would (both things are important). I am certain Dr. Hougen is an excellent cardiologist, but his inability to see past my weight was rather reckless.

We like Dr Hougen and trust him as a doctor, but he sold his practice to Children's Hospital last year and now it's very expensive to see him. We used to pay just a co-pay for the office visit. Now, Children's Hospital also sends a bill for a facility charge. We usually pay a $35 co-pay but this time we also got a $900 bill from Children's Hospital for "facility" charges. It's the same office and same appointment. There are a lot of talented cardiologists in NOVA. This one is now too expensive
