in Harlingen, TX |
Very rude and condescending behavior toward my Mother today at a scheduled appointment. We will never go back to this supposed Dr again. He changed my Moms medications without discussing it with her and then disappeared on a one month vacation and closed his office. My 84 year old Mom ended up in the emergency room to get medical treatment. Today was his first day back from vacation and he was angry with my Mom for wasting his time and refused to listen to what happened to her while he was out!
Pleasant and personable. Good bedside manor. Seems knowledgable but didn't follow through with his staff on scheduling we discussed. The medical staff is excellent but the office staff is as bad as it can get! Terrible scheduling for everything time and time again. If I didn't need them I would not go back. I will find a new doctor. Problems with paperwork, perscriptions, scheduling and long waits for procedures and office visits.

    My expertise is working with the latest pain management technologies and treatments. Helping patients take care of their condition in order to maximize their functional capacity and quality of life.

    Dr. Forman Jr says...

    I trained under Dr. Vincente Pallares, M.D., one of the pioneers in Interventional Pain Management.  I have performed over 20,000 interventional pain procedures in my career, but I am equally experienced and capable at non-interventional pain management.
