Waited over an hour after my appointment time and never got seen. Walked out of the exam room and saw the doctor just sitting at his desk so I grabbed my stuff and left. Refuse to use doctors who don’t respect their patients time. Extremely rude.

Frank is a leading gastroenterologist at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM), and sees patients at his office in Smith Tower, 6560 Fannin Street, Houston, Texas. He can schedule procedures either at BCM or Methodist Hospital, and since I am a Methodist Hospital employee he was able to perform my procedure at HMH. Highly recommended!

He listens to me and his exam was the most hands-on physical exam I have received since my last visit with him 3 years ago. (I do get annual physicals). Answers questions, readily.
