Ratings for Dr. Nicholas Houseman
I saw Mr Houseman 6 months ago for a skin cancer removal, I found him and his staff very professional, taking time to explain the whole process to me. They provided a caring and supportive environment for what was a stressful health issue.
I have had 3 procedures with Dr Houseman over the past 2 years, today was my third, 12/5/17. My wife also had a breast reduction with Dr Houseman and between us Dr Houseman is excellent at what he does and his team are very professional. I have found their costs to be very reasonable for the results achieved and have recommend others who found to be happy with their results. In my opinion I highly recommend Dr Houseman as my experience was pleasing.
I attended for removal of a small skin cancer, a minor procedure I had undergone several years before, for a reasonable cost with only a local anaesthetic at this same practice. I was informed by the receptionist, after a brief consultation that it could only be done with additional unrequested minor plastic surgery and a cost of several thousands? Because I was worried about the progress of the lesion I have had to pay thousands for procedures that were not requested and in any case did not require an additional specialist or operating theatre.
My local GP referred me to Dr Nicholas Houseman to have a minor procedure - removal of a small lump under my skin (a dermatofibroma). The GP advised that I'll need a consultation first and then the procedure. Last week, I arrived at Dr Houseman's clinic on time and waited 40 minutes for him. Once he arrived, he looked at my arm, confirmed that it was a dermatofibroma and sent me to his receptionist Hannah to answer any questions that I had regarding costs. The consultation literally took less than a minute and I got charged $165. I was quite disappointed as I thought the consultation would be approximately 30 minutes. When I asked his "friendly" receptionist Hannah how much the actual minor procedure would be, she said that I'll be $500 - $700 out of pocket. When I asked how much it would cost in total (so that I can budget for the procedure), she said she couldn't tell me. I felt completely ripped off and won’t be going back for something so minor that may end up costing me thousands.
