This Dr does care about you as an Individual , I would refer every one to him
in Houston, TX |
Staff is absolutely unacceptable - they will go days without responding to telephone calls, they are very hard to understand, give incorrect instructions,and make mistakes that you have to figure out. It is also impossible to talk to the doctor if you are not there for an appointment.
