"I believe it is very important for the patient and family to understand that surgery is not always the only viable treatment option. My goal is for you to understand all treatment options available, allowing you to take an active role in treatment decisions. The best patient/doctor relationship is based on understanding and communication. We make every effort to ensure that your needs are met by providing you and your family with a full explanation of your medical problem and my recommended treatment. Our patients are our most important concern and we welcome your suggestion on improving our service to you. After all, good care is more than caring for people, it is caring About people." ~ Bruce a.

Patient Comments (1)
in Fort Worth, TX |
Doctor is very professional. He does listen to your questions. Sometimes it is hard to get medications sent with correct dosage. He delegates this to an assistant. You may have to wait a considerable amount to of time to see him, if there are problems with other patients. But, someone should come in and explain to you rather than let you just sit four over 30 minutes.
