5 out of 5 stars

It is my impression Dr. Hou is highly skilled and possesses the ability to inform and communicate with patients at a level that is clear and relatable . She is kind and very patient . She recognized my anxiety and apprehension surrounding fears about a possible diagnosis. I left both of my appointments feeling at ease, secure and well cared for by Dr. Hou

5 out of 5 stars

Whether it is the friendliness and professionalism of the support staff or the knowledge and positivity of Dr. Hou, I fully endorse the Ayer Neuroscience Institute at Hartford Hospital. Love this place!
