I was referred to this doctor by Straub Hospital. I waited 2 hours in the waiting room and he never looked me in the . He was sarcastic and very uncaring. He called me in for some prescriptions and wants me to come back in a week. No way!!!

I went to dr. Pien with a number of puzzling symptoms. Weight loss, neuropathy, abdominal pain. Dr. Pien was thorough, patient, took time to listen to my concerns, ran comprehensive tests and ensured I understood what the plan was. His staff was very responsive and called me back, and was willing to listen and humor even some of my more outlandish self-diagnoses (when you are sick and Google symptoms, it's amazing what you can come up with. ).

It is rare to find a doctor as efficient & caring as Dr Pien who helped me through a severe blood disease recently. He outlined my options & guided me through with the pros/cons. I highly recommend this doctor for the way he cares f & for his expertise. The only problem seems to be that his excellence in infectious disease medicine creates a backlog in his office. My solution? Get more doctors like him (& Dr Mickey of Staub) if this is possible or have fewer patients who need his services!

You will probably wait over 2 hours (YES, TWO HOURS!) to be seen by him& will get about 5-10 min of his time. Appt's are really really overbooked& seems like it's a regular thing-you will not know this though until you get there. He was moving as fast as he could& was friendly, but when you have way too many people scheduled to be seen all at the same time, it just doesn't work. Also, after I waited that long to see him, he didn't run a single test on me even though I specifically asked him to.

Dr. Pien is an excellent and caring physician. He successfully treated my infected foot with antibiotics, but more importantly answered all my questions and kept me abreast of my progress.

No way I would ever recommend this Doctor.
