Definitely needs improvement on his listening skills and bedside manner... When I asked him to explain a medication he prescribed- he sighed and dropped his head as if it was a bother to do so, and still then offered no further information. After a hefty wait to even get an appointment , he was quick to move along and seemed distracted, and on all three visits he left abruply, without resolution for my visit. Accreditation is not the only side of a medical career, in my opinion he is a little high strung and arrogant. I will be finding another physician.

My husband and I have been Dr. Houghton's patients for 11 years. He has seen us through 3 major surgeries and foreign travel illnesses. He is efficient, swift to take action and focused on prevention and good outcomes. His care has been extremely effective and his medical knowledge is remarkable. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for effective and reliable care.

He is a "doctor" but really, I would at best call him a Pharmacist. Very pleasant but unfortunately just a glorified pill pusher. I would take a jerk for a doctor who really does his job over a nice fellow who just gives me pills. He even gave up his hospital privileges. Not enough money in hospital visits i guess.

Knowledge limited. Self-preserving. Women go find someone else.

I have been with this doctor for over three years now. He can sometimes run a bit late... but then, so can we all. I would not trade him for any other GP.

Take a book when you go to his office, and be prepared for a directorial and not very helpful front office person as well as a long wait. He is a good enough doctor, but does not listen to the clients needs and has a very un-friendly receptionist. Seems to me that she tells everyone to come in at the same time rather than stagger the appointments and then people wait for a very long time to see the doctor.
