I started seeing him because of his online reviews. Dr. Houston not only treats your pain, but he actually does everything he can to pinpoint the cause of your pain so that he can correct the problem. He has prescribed physical therapy and x-rays, in addition to having two SIJ injections. Those did not help, they actually ended up causing more (temporary) pain instead of alleviating it. This told him that the spot he thought was causing my pain is not where it's actually coming from, so we're on to the next step. His office staff, and the staff at the hospital where he does the injections, are so friendly that I remark on it every time I see them. I was told last week by one of the nurses that the reason everyone is so friendly is that Dr. Houston makes working for him a joy, that they actually enjoy going to work every day. And, it shows. He WILL find the cause, and I have every confidence that he'll do his part to fix it. I am so glad I found him and will recommend him to anyone who needs a great doctor. He's not afraid to prescribe meds that help, but if that's all you're looking for then you should find another doctor because he is going to require you to take part in trying to find the root cause of your pain and fix it. If you do your part, he will do his. He is a Godsend!

Dr Houston was an answer to our prayers. He is one of the only pain management physicians in the northern Virginia area that know the current, evidence based treatments for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Great bedside manner and really listens to his patients history.

No doubt in my military mind Dr Houston is the absolute best Pain Management Physician in the entire NOVA area! Everything he has done, from Diagnosis to treatment has been spot on - and his personality and bedside manner are entirely above board! Spends time with me unlike any other Dr I have seen for these issues - MUCH MUCH more than previous Pain "Facility" where they simply just Get you in and out in a matter of mins (Nat Spine & Pain) As Retired Military I also highly recommend anyone who is former military to see Dr Houston as well since he is a Retired Naval Dr who started the whole Wounded Warrior Care project at Walter Reed / Bethesda so he has personally seen and treated EVERY type of Combat and military associated wounds / injuries! Cant say how important this was in making my decision to move over to him - having similar terminology and background are a huge variable! Again- there isn't anything negative I could even think of or list here about this Dr. Hands down absolute best in managing my Chronic Pain associated with military injuries and ability to relate/discuss matters with from this field! I have literally seen more relief from Dr Houston in the last year than I have in last 11 years since my date of injury (IED Blast Exposure in Iraq) so he's tracking right on! --had at least 6 surgeries in last 3 months and each one has brought relief I never thought Id obtain before! Thank you Dr Houston for all you have done Commander!! Semper Fidelis !!
