"Thank you for the care that you gave my husband till the end of his life. He appreciated your concern and your honest advice that helped save him from a lot of pain and suffering. You were very wise, and we were very wise to have a good doctor who really care about his patients like you. My husband enjoyed laughing with you at his visits also".

I do not understand how this guy is still in charge of Critical Care @ Metroplex Hospital. He failed to diagnose my husband's lung cancer even though the radiologist spotted it in Feb 2014. There was no referral to Oncology, no treatment and he did not inform us @ any of the 5 or 6 times my husband was in his care. We finally found out @ Scott & White Hospital 6 months later, when the cancer was Stage 4 & untreatable. Bill passed 18 days later. THIS is who Metroplex chooses to head Critical Car
