2010 internal fixation of wrist fracture

I would recommend Dr. Houkom highly. 2 1/2 years after surgery for a complicated wrist fracture, I forget that I ever had any issue. Even my physical therapist said that I was lucky and "had the best surgeon." If you're looking for someone who is going to coddle you and treat you like a baby, this guy isn't it. He's matter of fact and VERY experienced -- which is all I care about.

Carpal Tunnel Diagnosis

A surgical consult and he spent time answering my questions and explaining the procedure - not making me feel rushed or hurried which is nice because that is normally my biggest complaint with Kaiser.

Extremely patient and kind

Dr Houkom is an excellent pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon. He was very patient with my husband and I when we brought our daughter in. She is a developmentally disabled and we were very pleased with the way he treated her and us.

Was a little rough during examination. I don't think he'd treat his own child/family member the same way.
