Review of Dr. Pursifull


Dr Pursifull doesn't seem to be appropriately concerned about more complex issues. Not a terrible visit, but certainly not a great one either. I prefer my physicians more engaged and compassionate.

Review of Dr. Nguyen

-TX |

I had an umbilical hernia lap repair by Dr. Nguyen. He was excellent. He spent adequate time in the pre surgical appointment. The surgical procedure was uneventful with minimal scarring. I also worked as a recovery room RN and had the opportunity to work with Dr. Nguyen. There were never any post surgical problems. I think Dr. Nguyen is an excellent surgeon and would gladly refer a friend or family member. The office is very nice as are the office staff.

Review of Dr. Becker

-San Antonio, TX |

I showed up to my first office visit with Dr. Becker and waited 90 minutes in the waiting room. It was a Friday .l, and when i finally saw Dr. Becker he was chewing gum. Also, he had stained lab coat and pants, and I spent less then 15 minutes in room with him. Office staff never assists when calling. I waited days for a callback.

Review of Dr. Nguyen

- in San Antonio |

Treated like a number. Concerns regarding cost for treatment (I have a bleeding disorder which requires very expensive ancillary treatment) were utterly disregarded. This physician will never speak to you. You will wait 30 minutes on hold only to leave a message. A nurse with zero understanding of the situation will respond. Do I sound emotional? Yes, I am. Knowing your surgeon, who you will entrust with your life under anesthesia, could care less about you will make you that way.

Review of Dr. Kaul


Never in my 7 years of experience with my disorder have I know such a disrespectful, ignorant psychiatrist. She has no idea what's she's doing, I almost got hospitalized because she decided I shouldn't take my meds for 48 hours and then she completely forgot that she told me that, she's so disorganized and rude. She believes I don't have my disorder, and judges me by my appearance and assumes I am just anxious. She doesn't even read the information given to her about my disorder.

Review of Dr. Becker

-San Antonio, TX |

Took me 2 months to get an appointment with Dr. Becker as a new patient, and that is with a referral from my PCP. They make you sign a document that if you cancel in less than 24 hours they will charge you $30.00. When my appointment was coming up, they called to confirm, I said yes I will be there. Day of appointment, and while on the road they told me that the Dr. would not be able to see me and that I would have reschedule at their convenience. I was coming 10 miles away. Bad office staff!!!
