23/05/11 5 5 5 5 DR. HOUSE ROCKS. He needs to ge this life back together with Dr. Cutty. Although, the show was a little more borign when he had his relationship with her, he is just too much of a mess now without her !!!  Respond

23/02/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Tullman is a fantastic doctor that we are so sorry to hear is moving back to his hometown. My husband and I are forever greatful to him for being the one to diagnos his MS 3 years ago. He was very compassionate, amazingly knowledgeable and we were so lucky to have him. We will miss him so much and do not know where we will go from here? What a loss he is to all of his patients.

12/01/11 5 4 5 5 I've never had the pleasure of being treated by Dr. House directly, but from what I've seen: I BELIEVE HOUSE COULD CURE CONGENITAL ANENCEPHALY! He can work on me anytime and be as rude as he likes as long as he cures what ails me. Gregory darling, if things don't work out with Cutty, I'm right here! (P.S. It's not true - not all patients lie. I would never lie to you, sweetheart!)  Respond

12/11/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. House is an excellent diagnostician. Although he has what appears to be a gruff bedside manner, in actuality, he is trying to convince his patients that his diagnosis is correct and is necessary to save a life. If needed, he will go head to head with his boss to convince her that the test he needs to diagnose his patient is the only way, even if it seems to be dangerous or unnecessary. He has also risked his license and career to do what is best for his patients. A doctor like this is a once in a lifetime and anyone who needs his help is very fortunate to have Dr. House in their corner. His job starts where other doctor's jobs leaves off.

09/02/10 3 3 5 5 Wow! Dr. House is actually LYME-literate! I went to over twenty nit-wits. I was misdiagnosed with MS, Parkinson's, ALS, Fibromyalgia, CFS, Lupus, Alzheimer's, TMJ, Rheumatoid Arthritis, etc. I was even told it was "all in my head"! And that I was going to need a shrink! I was finally diagnosed by Dr. House. Amazing! He is one of the few LYME-literate doctors in this country. A country where LYME disease is running rampant! It is an epidemic larger than AIDS! Now I know why I wasn't diagnosed. There is NO reliable test for LYME disease. Not everyone gets the bull's eye rash. Ticks carry more than LYME bacteria. Ticks carry microorganisms that cause other diseases. Thank God Dr. House is affiliated with ILADS and not the IDSA. If he followed the guidelines that the IDSA concocted in 2006 I'd be DEAD! Thank You Dr. House for your affiliation with ILADS! You are saving my life! Dr. House has shown all of his colleagues the documentary "Under Our Skin". He wants them to be LYME-literate!  Respond

17/06/09 5 4 3 5 In more than one episode of House, a patient has a seizure, and the doctors shove a spoon in the patient's mouth. This is not the right thing to do--it's more likely to cause extra damage than prevent it--and that is a well-established fact in the medical community. Don't the writers even look this sh*t up? I don't appreciate the show perpetuating incorrect and potentially harmful ideas.  Respond

04/06/09 5 2 2 5 Dr. House seems to have an invisible friend. That disturbs me. Perhaps it's related to the many pills he takes during consults. Furthermore, he discusses private issues in his soap-opera-like life in front of patients and everyone else. He diagnosed my uncle (who looks a lot like Karl Reiner) with pancreatic cancer, when it was actually chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction, which scared the S**T out of the old man...he almost had a stroke!! If he had, we'd all be rich. Can't complain myself, though. Despite his insanity, I was diagnosed with a curable tropical disease based on the fact that Dr. House noticed I winked at a candy-striper. I owe my life to that nutcase. Oh, and I have a major, throbbing crush on him.  Respond

25/03/09 1 1 1 1 I knew Dr. Gregory House while he was still Dr. Gracey House. After his sex change operation, I think that his doctoring skills have deminished.

10/03/09 5 5 5 5 House is EXCELLENT, I would not recommend another physician. I don't know how anyone else feels about bedside manner but I really don't care as long as he knows his stuff. House is the only doctor that can save your life and then make you question if it was worth saving all in the same breathe. He's also not bad to look at though I would definitely prefer Foreman. House is a close 2nd.

08/03/09 1 1 1 5 Four years ago I was diagnosis with meralgia paresthetica and was told by a doctor (DR A.C. Billings Tulsa OK) it could not be treated, so four over 4 years 24/7 I have endure numbness on my left thigh and a pain and burning sensation. Due to the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) being pinch by the Anterior superior iliac spine. Dr. House would not have given up on me, and found out way's to help me with the pain and sleepless nights, either with pills, or other treatments like low laser therapy, or even surgery. I would have put up with he's rude ass comments, egotistic personality along with he's halfa male attitude, but he would have done he's job,, which is to help people.

06/03/09 5 5 5 5 A co-worker of mine was trying to quit smoking. After 8 years of using the nicorette gum ($50/100 pieces) he switched to sugarless gum. But it was CONSTANT gum chewing. Spit out one piece and put in another. He was a chain-gum-chewer. Then the diarrhea started. This went on for months. If he wasn't opening a new pack of gum, he was in the bathroom with the runs....Then one night on House, he saw that the sorbitol in sugarless gum can cause loose stools when consummed in huge quantities!!!! We all had a good laugh. He has now started to wean himself off the sugarless gum.  Respond

16/02/09 4 3 4 5 Dr. House prescribes to the school of medicine that philosophizes that what won't kill you, will make you strong. He must have graduated summa cum laude. He tests his patients to the limits. It is his staff, who administer doses of kindnesses. Armed with narcissistic smarts, barbarous jibes and a condescending attitude, Dr. House arrived at a brilliant diagnoses and he saved my life. Hopefully, I have been strong enough that I will never have to undergo such well-meaning inflictions again.  Respond

04/02/09 4 3 3 5 I love him/hate him. He's total doctor. no human elements applied here. This is fine because thats what sick people really need, someone to concentrate on curing them of a sickness no other doctor can, and leave the bedside manner to the associate doctors, and nurses. If I were really hopelessly ill, I'd want Dr. House.  Respond

01/02/09 3 2 2 4 First of all, this guy was late. Then he said I was obviously a hypochondriac. However, his staff noticed several symptoms I couldn't possibly make up, even subconsciously. After fifteen diagnoses and the removal of an equivalent number of vital organs, I was pronounced to have a terminal illness. Thank God I don't have to live with the pain of losing everything. Now, that's my family and the government's problem.

21/01/09 5 5 5 5 Though the man is clearly a very intelligent and competant doctor, his attitude and bedside manner leave much to be desired. Fortunately, I had little direct interaction with Dr House, and instead dealt with his team who were very polite, especially that beautiful girl he calls "13" or whatever. It took a few different tests and procedures to narrow down my particular problem, but I walked out of there healthy and alive. Dr House's team was great, the doc himself though accused me of being a liar and an alcoholic repeatedly, and even went so far as to say I had to be an alcoholic otherwise I would have gotten laid more recently then a few months. Despite this however, I would recommend this Doctor in situations where no one else can seem to help, despite his attitude. Just, deal with him with caution and a thick skin.

19/01/09 5 3 4 5 Dr. House was wonderful! He walked into my room after yelling at his minions and took one look at me to diagnose me! Of course, he didn't tell anyone what I had until his team figured it out. He put me through dozens of painful tests but I got to flirt with the cute Oncologist and that lovely Aussie doctor. He finally diagnosed me with a bad cold and I got to go home. All in all it was a wonderful experience!  Respond

13/01/09 4 3 4 5 He's a real obnoxious ass whenever any of his student Dr.s are around. Otherwise, he's not a bad chap at all. I don't understand his pill popping problem (saw that one fast repeatedly). His chronic pain problems are being treated with short term opiates, which are meant to be rescue meds. Unless he has an underlying health issue, NSAID's should be sufficient. Wait a sec, I'm not the Dr! There's no Pain Specialist in this fine teaching hospital?! Dr. House will be needing a liver transplant if he keeps popping the opaites. Although he always appears as though he's been on an all night bender, he's not hard on the eyes. Dr Wilson is even nicer eye candy but I'd need to have a malignancy for him to be my doc. Think I'll pass on that one!!  Respond

09/01/09 4 2 3 2 Dr House is a real ass with the sensitivity of a bull. He doesn't have a clue about anything medical because he's always guessing about what's wrong and has a bazillion wrong diagnoses before he accidentally stumbles across the right one, after spending needless $$ on useless tests. The Chief of Staff is really sexy and seems smitten with House for some reason, she must be a masochist. They say House really has an English accent but I didn't hear it myself.

28/12/08 5 5 5 5 Well, it's official. I had died and gone to heaven and Dr. House brought me back to life by smacking me with his cane so that the burrito that had gotten lodged in my windpipe came flying out (straight into Dr. Cuddy's cleavage)while I sputtered for my breath. I was on my way to the light when I was told that Dr. House still had some unfinished business with me, so I had to turn around. Not sure why...the guy has got bad breath!

22/12/08 2 2 1 3 Dr. House is not only late, but if you spend 5 minutes with him, it's a lot. You will spend more time with the residents than you will with him and, what's worse, is he intentionally put me into cardiac arrest to prove a theory. I had more lab tests done than anyone can possibly imagine and I think he's high most of the time! His attitude is horrific, though I occasionally find him amusing. If Dr. House comes limping your way, turn and run!

22/12/08 3 1 1 5 On Time? I never saw the man. They told me I was his patient so I guess I was. The Doctors that work for him did all these test and told me I had three different terminal illnesses before telling me I had an infection from a splinter I had gotten years ago when I took shop in school. Turns out my body had covered it with something then that something broke from a fall and viola instant illness from something I'd had for years. I did see the man as he was gloating in the hallway after they removed splinter. Strangely the hospital doesn't seem to care about patient privacy as all walls are made of glass.

17/12/08 4 2 5 5 This guy is a piece of work. I think he saw me as his entertainment rather than as a patient. I think I heard a slight British accent. While I was in the hospital, I dreamed his staff was in my house watching T.V and eating pizza. I was hoping to see more of Dr. Cuddy if you know what I mean. I think that's why I didn't die immediately; hope is a wonderful thing....so is Dr. Cuddy. Anyway getting back to House I love the way he beats-up people verbally. However when he did it to me I began to cry uncontrollably. I later found out he did it on purpose so the speck of dirt in my eye would come out normally vs needing surgery. The guy is a genius. Unfortunately his staff consists of a bunch of dufus's. They never seem to believe him and again and again he turns out to be correct. You'd think they'd finally trust and believe in him. How come the pharmacist never seems to be on the phone dealing with some insurance company or arguing over price with a patient. And where is the bag balm!!!!!  See Responses

Gets my mind off it. I must say I was a bit worried when they were supposed to do this one life-saving procedure but Dr. House came in, grabbed the instrument, and quickly jabbed it in my body (no pain killers)at the last second, saving my life. (He wasn't sure it would work but it did...whew) I'm scheduled to have him figure out it my toe is disease ridden or if I just broke it. Maybe he'll find its not really a toe but a huge growth that may kill me if not removed. Who knows but I Can't wait!  Respond

17/12/08 3 1 3 3 Okay, what is up with this guy. First, he does this reversal of roles--tells me that he's diaphoretic, peripatetic, has swelling and edema, and insists he's got a third cranial nerve palsy. Oh, yes, he thinks that he has an auto-immune disorder. Tells me he thinks that he has scleroderma, but even though he's an ass, he doesn't have the telltale pinched rodent face. Likely, he has end-stage liver and renal failure from his vast pill-popping addiction and alcoholism. Finally, he pinched me. Not to worry, I exacted my retribution by running over his cane with my SUV, and then I gave him a Morphine drip until he went bye-bye.  Respond

He did give me good medical advice, but I did speak to his supervisor, Dr. Lisa Cuddy about his inappropriate behavior. By the way, she was dressed in a very sexy manner--her blouse was cut down to there and her skirt was way too tight--how does she practice medicine like that????  Respond

16/12/08 5 1 2 2 Are you kidding me? This guy went through five different diagnoses before diagnosing my illness, which is unfortunately terminal. His staff did most of the work, which isn't saying a lot for them either. The worst part is that I almost died several times before they figured out what was wrong! They finally conferred with Dr. Wilson (a real charmer, as well as efficient and knowledgeable), who correctly (and quickly) diagnosed my illness. I swear this House guy was just making stuff up to keep himself amused. He is kinda sexy, though.
