Never even got to see her. Because I have been a previous patient with a TDDC doctor in the Dallas area and moved to Houston she has to approve the change. Days later still waiting for the phone call that is never coming. Not impressed with this practice.

I didnt even get to meet the doctor thanks so the rude staff. I feel like if I have any questions regarding an appointment, they should be easily answered and with no need of an attitude. For the appointment receptionist, I am sorry you are unhappy but your attitude is one good way of losing patients.
