Review of Dr. Franke

- in Austin, TX |

This man is insane. He makes decisions regarding others who are in need of a great deal of care without considering what is in THEIR best interest. He was smug, pompous and a disgrace to the medical community who actually CARES about individuals who find themselves in such a predicament. Don't let his photographic memory fool you. He doesn't care. Not about his patients anyhow. Do NOT seek help from this physician. He should have his license revoked.

Review of Dr. Kastner

We love Dr. Kastner! He’s genuine, down to earth, friendly and caring. I love that he remembers all of my kids, not just the one who’s appointment we’re there for.

Review of Dr. Buchanan

- in Austin |

Outstanding medical professional, attentive, answers questions without making the patient feel like an idiot and is dare good at what he does. He implanted a spinal chord simulator in my lower back and has been great with making and keeping follow up appointments. He treats me like a valued person . And, finally, unlike most docs, he remembers my name. and, oh, finally, this guy is a internationally renowned and respected authority on ethical behavior in the field of medicine. Cool.

Review of Dr. Flippin

I don’t feel like she takes my concerns seriously. She’s always in a rush to get to the next patient.

Review of Dr. Bierwirth

- in Waco, TX |

We have seen Dr. Matthew Bierworth over the last 14 years both in Waco and during his time in Temple. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and has great report with children of all ages! I have three boys who he has cared for since birth and have only been more than pleased with every interaction we have had with Bierwirth and his staff!
