Lubbock, TX |
Dr. Cockings is easily annoyed and condescending to his patients...Not a good quality for a PEDIATRIC doctor. The receptionist is rude and unfriendly. We continue to see Dr cockings because he's the only option in town, but my child and I both absolutely dread going the appointments. Go to anyone else of you can, if not, be prepared.
My receptionist is doing her job. She requires certain information from patients to do her job effectively If information has been requested and the patient arrives without it, it makes for delays, conflict at the front desk and more work This same situation can repeat multiple times with the same family. I don't feel that I get easily annoyed or condescending but we all have those days and sometimes there are personality conflicts. I would be happy to refer you somewhere else if desired.

I have not even gotten into the door. I called to check on why I hadn't gotten a call about scheduling an appointment for my daughter. I was informed by a receptionist that my daughters concers were not pressing. Who is she to tell me that? She does not have a medical degree!
