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.
