Patient Comments (5)
in Houston, TX |
After several years seeing other doctors, I met with Dr. Hightower. It was the most informative session about my diabetes that I have experienced since my initial diagnosis back in 2006 by another doctor. She suggested a new and very different approach to my diabetes and it seems to be working. She is extremely pleasant to talk with. And her support staff is very good. The Diabetes Counselor, Brooke, was also a tremendous source of information.

At last someone who would listen to me and answered my questions as well as providing solutions to my problems. The plan of care was communicated effectively and everything is working and I am feeling human again.

She is very easy to talk with about diabetes and great at reviewing your options. She is concerned with establishing a workable solution to improving your health. You are given a full range of information and options. Wait times are very reasonable.

Shortly after going to Dr. Hightower my diabetes and other metabolic problems were under control. My cholesterol, thyroid and diabetes were under control for the first time in years. I would recommend anyone who is having diabetic related problems to setup an appointment and examination.
