Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.

i'm looking for a new doc

I feel that in a profession where you have a staff to help book your appointments, handles your patients accounts, etc you better make sure they stand for what you believe in. If you care you better make sure the first contact your patients have with your office is nothing but care! However, I have struggled with Houska and his staff since day 1. We've never waited less than 30 min to see him. Many of the staff members are rude. They only answer their phone b/w 7:30a-4p and not for an entire hour at lunch, not very helpful when you work as well! They misdiagnosed my son at one point and didn't call to tell us the medication we were giving him wasn't going to solve the problem until the medication was given and the bottle was empty over a week later. I expect better care and want better care for my family.

Dr. Houska is amazing

I am willing to deal with slight waiting times because Dr. Houska is thorough, caring, and smart. I feel comfortable during exams, and he always takes time to explain options and answer questions. I have never had a better family doctor!
