Christopher Houghton has been an excellent medical provider for me. I consider him a partner in a very important segment of my life right now, as I'm [age removed] and healthy and want to stay that way as long as possible, and I think Kit will help me do that.

This was an appointment to establish care with Legacy Health. Was only able to schedule with a NP, no Dr, without waiting months. My insurance changed so had to leave Vancouver Clinic. More Dictors with VC and ease of appointment was very good. Something Legacy Health needs to improve upon.

Everyone always professional and courteous. Dr Houghton was great, his assistant was great too, I can't remember her name.

The receptionists were the nicest I've met, they were very patient that I'd forgotten my new patient paperwork and got a new copy and assured me that there was no rush. They were very helpful and kind while scheduling my follow up appointment. The exam room decor was genuinely calming. Christopher Houghton made me feel heard, respected, comfortable, spent enough time with me, and gave me more solutions to my problems and options. I also liked that the weigh station was in kg, this shows a high level of patient care.

All my family and friends have their own doctor and I don't think they want to change

  Nov 24, 2023
Several days after my visit my condition worsened. I returned to see my regular doctor and received a different diagnosis and treatment that worked. I don't know if my eye problem had changed over two days pr of I had a mis-diagnosis.

Dr. Kit spent the most time with me than any medical professional ever has. It was a first session and k feel it took all the time he needed to really get to know me and address all my questions and concerns. He made sure to give me thorough and accurate info about the issues I was seeking guidance on. I'm very happy with my experience.

  Nov 13, 2023
He took enough time with me.

This was my first visit with Kit. He was thoughtful and thorough.

  Nov 3, 2023
This was our first visit so all records were not available yet. Kit was sensitive and and very attentive.

  Oct 25, 2023
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.

  Oct 13, 2023
Nice guy but the first and second visit was a waste of time. Spent too much time and got nothing from either visit. Will not come back.

  Oct 2, 2023
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.

  Sep 28, 2023
So far I like everyone and everything they have helped me with.

C. Houghton is a great listener!!

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.

I have tried to recommend - but was advised the clinic is not taking new patients.

  Jul 20, 2023
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.

Visit was scheduled for routine but was spent on new condition that required attention.

  Jul 7, 2023
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.

This was my initial visit. Very happy with the service.
