Review for Dr. Harold Fite, MD

Very impressed with Dr. Grooters: I found him concerned with my well-being and not quick to recommend surgery before eliminating ‘simple’ measures. Dr. Grooters is patient, thorough and answered all my questions. Other professionals I know have also highly praised his work.

Review for Dr. Anita Scribner, MD

Dr. Mann was very thorough and friendly. It didn’t feel like he was rushed to make a diagnosis. He made us feel very comfortable in the E.R. It is apparent that Dr. Mann cares about his patients, and he does his best to put parents at ease, while also keeping them informed.

Review for Dr. Harold Fite, MD

I just became a new patient of Dr. Ryan Guillory on 8/30/19. The posted, negative reviews pertaining to a few office staff, are no longer applicable! My experience was totally positive...from registration, audiologist, nurse, to Dr. Guillory!

Sep 02 2019

Review for Dr. Ryan Guillory, MD

The worst Dr. ever if you don’t mind being seen by an incompetent idiot then this is the one for you ! I had to put a star otherwise there would be none.

Sep 01 2019

Review for Dr. Suzzane Blake, MD

Dr. Fite is very knowledgeable but leaves follow-up care to his staff. I have been seeing him for a year and each month it is an issue to renew pain medicine. I leave phone messages and usually have to call 2 or 3 times. They don't volunteer information easily. Very frustrating.

Aug 30 2019

Review for Dr. Harold Fite, MD

You know how busy he is, but when he is in the room with you he takes the time to hear your problems. Very attentive and sensitive.

Review for Dr. John Dipasquale, MD

I lost all trust in Dr. Dean once I learned she had a coworker fired as a personal vendetta. This coworker knew Dr. Dean’s husband’s girlfriend. I can’t believe an organization like Christus would allow such behavior.

Review for Dr. Babajide Ogunseinde, MD

About 10 days ago my wife & I saw Dr Lanka at the same time. Most Doc's discourage the combo appointment. We each got quality, timely treatment with scripts, referrals & follow-ups. We've seen him for years & Dr Lanka gives us zero reasons to go elsewhere.
