I received a letter in November that Dr. Monsour was leaving Houston Methodist. I missed my yearly follow-up and have been trying to make an appointment with Dr. McFadden without any success. I left a message to Dr. McFadden's nurse and never received a call back and was put on hold by the receptionist and after 25 minutes of wait time I hung up. I never had this problem when I was Dr. Monsour's patient. His nurse Carla always returned my calls & Dr. Monsour is one of the best doctors ever.
