(Select your rating)
Dr. Houghton is an amazing OB. He took the time to make sure that my husband and I understood all of our options as we needed to make decisions. He also took the time to make sure we felt comfortable and had our questions answered. He definitely cares about his patients and only wants the best for them. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an awesome OBGYN.
