It was very simple to come to the conclusion that I had found my permanent provider once moving to [location removed]. I've received exceptional care and have felt very well attended to each time I have presented for either general care or a specific need. This is an exceptional clinic and my provider couldn't be better. I'm grateful.

My experience was great with all medical assistants and Dr. Houghton gave me excellent attention and care. Looking forward to my next visit. My daughter was with me and she too felt he was on the ball and so very helpful.

My first medical visit since I moved from Oregon. Was favorably impressed with Kit and the staff. Only issue I had was getting my meds correct even though I brought a current list.

Dr. Houghton was very thorough and professional. He was complete in his analysis and provided a detailed discussion on my healthcare needs. He is very attentive and has a very good doctor to patient demeanor.

Chris Houghton is the best provider I have ever seen. I feel that he cares about me as a whole person and really wants to get to know me. He takes a lot of time with me and truly cares about me. If he ever moved clinics, I'd move my care there just to keep him as my PCP.

I've been a legacy patient for the last year or so, and have never had a bad experience. I got to meet my new caregiver at this recent appointment, and I am extremely pleased with both of facility and the caregiver himself.
