Spring, TX |
Good surgeon but doesn't take time to explain procedures or after care. Don't expect a lot of information from him. Our daughter had issues and we had to ask for him to come see her while in hospital (that is connected to his office) when he did he didn't say more than a word and never got close to her. Follow up apt. waited an hour and he spent less than 4 clocked minutes in the room with her. I am surprised that he is in pediatrics. My daughter asked to go to a different doctor when we left.

worse doctor I have met. The first appt at 8:30 and saw him walking in at 9:45. No wonder I waited for 2 hours for an afternoon appt last time. Total disrespect of people's time. On top of that, he saw my daughter (after 1.5 wait for a first morning appt) without really much examination, he then said "oh, I don't like to cauterize in the office, we should do it in the hospital and we should take out the mucosa". well, sounded like he is just looking for cash. never go back
