I just wished I had asked more questions. But I hurt too much to think. But the dr. did a good job in explaining things.

January 17, 2015

Dr. House answered all of our questions giving my wife and me a clear picture of what lies ahead for my DBS.

December 22, 2014

Dr House and his team provided a very thorough and informative dialogue. Very reassuring

October 09, 2014

Made me feel very comfortable. Explained completely the procedure I am to have

July 30, 2014

Every Dr I spoke to during the week, has great respect for Dr House...For his record, for his kindness to his patients for the talent he has as a surgeon specializing in the BBS surgery I am about to get...I must say, I am not nervous at all about what is to come...

July 20, 2014

Every one made sure I understood everything we were explained about, before they leftthe room or hospital.

July 13, 2014

Dr. House is amazing. He explains things in detail. He is concerned, caring, and courteous. He takes my questions and concerns very serious. If I do not understand something, he explains it in more detail until I am comfortable with the answer.

May 20, 2014

Was careful removing staples to create the most minimal of pain.

May 10, 2014

April 17, 2014

Dr. House was excellent, professional, and very friendly.

March 27, 2014

Dr. House is the only doctor I have had experience with, that has taken personal steps to write and send emails to insurance or others if there is a problem taking care of his patients. He is not only professional and caring, but personable and friendly. He understands the degree of the patients capability and adjusts his explanations and discussion to fit the patients needs. He could see/sense my wife's concerns and carefully persisted until she had discussed them and was satisfied (or at least relieved by understanding any risks) When discussing the past DBS billing and insurance, he committed to review and resolve his and our questions. This shows how committed Dr House is to helping his patients and understanding all aspects of the patients relationship with the hospital and it's staff. I have talked to every person who I have met, or have stopped me because of their or my PD. I have always referred them to Dr Schrock, and Dr House. I carry a card in my wallet with contact information, phone numbers, etc.. and many have emailed me back fort more information. I have worked with other patients when referred back to me by Dr schrock or our PD group, and all have completed DBS with the ray of hope team.

February 13, 2014

excellent dr house is the best

January 21, 2014

the entire experience has been excellent

January 20, 2014

Dr. House was very thorough, he took the time to explain the MRI findings, the possible scenarios for my future, and the plans to deal with those.

December 23, 2013

We felt rushed. We had many more questions but the nurse appeared advising Dr House was needed...signaling our time was limited. This did not sit well with either of us and we were both quite disappointed. Perhaps Dr House felt he had discussed our concerns earlier...nontheless, we needed reinforcement and his patience, understanding and willingness to give us the time we needed.

November 28, 2013

I was very impressed with Dr. House. He is a compassionate, knowegable physician.

November 26, 2013

Once again, the professionalism of the staff is excellent, your facility is huge, and it takes a long time to be seen.

November 26, 2013

Dr House was so helpful, caring, and informative in explaining the DBS procedure and showing us and telling us just what to expect

November 21, 2013

He certainly was not out to talk me into anything, which I appreciate because I came away feeling that a measure this drastic isn't called for.

November 20, 2013

this is a very delicate procedure and dr house provided complete confidence in moving forward with this elective surgery

November 19, 2013

No complaints

October 16, 2013

A superb neuro-surgeon who talks at the patients' level using layman's terms. Very much appreciated.

June 15, 2013

Dr House Was Amazing. I Could Tell He Genuinely Cared About Me And My Problem. He Was Very Open, Honest And Frank About My Options As Well As The Possible Side Effects. He Addressed Questions From Both Myself And My Mother.

June 12, 2013

I have discussed the ease of my DBS surgery and the wonderful results, thanks to Dr. House, to anyone that would listen. I really think he performed a miraculous surgery on me.

Excellent staff. Thank you.

January 28, 2013

Dr. House and Nancy Duncan, NP both spent plenty of time explaining everything and answering the questions my wife and I had.

November 23, 2012

I especially liked the amount of time Dr. House spent with me discussing my condition.

November 19, 2012

He diadnosed me with a no name disease. How do i move forward with that? How come he didnt give me any medications i could take that might work better? i dont feel he gave me a fair shake and didnt go over my medical history enough to know my case. No-name disease? Really? "we dont have a name for what you have" i just dont get it!

October 09, 2012

I am grateful for the Doctor and his expertise with my problem. I am confident that he can help me.

October 01, 2012

I had complete trust in the advice the care provider gave and felt that he helped me to understand my problem and the solution for taking care of it.

August 18, 2012

Dr. House was obviously lacking knowledge about my prior treatments. He seemed more interested in the extent of numbness in my face than how he could help me.

August 02, 2012

Good explanations on treatments and condition and good communicator.

July 26, 2012

I appreciated the follow-up visit and the concern with the medicine I was taking for headaches. I was educated on the appropriate use of the medicine. My headaches are under control.

June 15, 2012

Dr. House is an exceptional doctor!

May 04, 2012

I was extremely impressed by Dr. House and the amount of time he spent listening to the concerns my wife and I have and then answering our questions and explaining hos he will follow up with us and what the likely plan of care will be.

January 21, 2012

Surgeon and staff were excellent.

Academic Bio

My research, performed in collaboration with colleagues in Bioengineering and Neurology, is focused in two areas, both utilizing electrocorticography recording techniques. One overarching goal is to provide more detailed descriptions of seizure origination and propagation in neocortical epilepsy. We have performed semi-chronic recordings in human patients at several orders of spatial resolution by using penetrating and non-penetrating microelectrodes in addition to more traditional recording techniques. These recordings have allowed for analysis of seizure propagation from the scale of single unit activity to lobar involvement. The second overarching goal is to provide descriptions of information content, again across several orders of scale, that can be recorded with these interface devices. Some of these descriptions have been published in regards to their possible utility in brain-machine interface devices.
