Specialties

Dr. William S Houck III has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Gastroenterology

    Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
    Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

AMAZING MD!!!

Dr. Houck is a God sent physician. We initially saw him 10+ years ago when my daughter began vomiting blood at 5 months old. He was wonderful! We continued to see him until she was 2. She has now had a reoccurrence with iron def anemia, esophageal erosion and stricture. He is patient, he is kind, he is compassionate, he is concerned, he is through...all qualities I want in my daughter's physician!

One Star

Dr. Houck orders unnecessary tests and procedures to generate revenue. He does not follow evidence based practice guidelines and does not keep current on relevant studies and recommendations. I have zero confidence in him as a provider and would never refer anyone to him.
