I met Dr. Houk as a new patient on Monday, 1/4/2021, and I was extremely impressed that he had carefully reviewed, and knew specific information about my condition, which was contained in my medical records sent to him by my VA cardiologist. He asked me all the salient questions about my condition, medications, and lifestyle, and took the time to answer my questions with regard to how I might proceed in the future. He decided that he would obtain additional medical records, which would make it easier for both of us to make fact-based decisions for future treatment. I found Dr. Houk to be very smart, friendly, and eager to help me, by providing sound and current medical information and guidance, based on my current medical condition. I am very glad I chose Dr. Houk as my Cardiologist, and would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking a knowledgeable heart doctor.
