His office staff is awful! I've talked to Cheryl a few times and found out that not only had the doctor's request for a procedure requiring insurance approval first been ignored for over 6 weeks (while I am in pain daily), but she informed me that they are "way way way behind on entering information." I let her know that I was switching doctors and not to submit anything for approval. She almost seemed happy that she didn't have to do her job further! Much more I need to say, but no more room.
Hello - I am sorry to hear about your negative experience. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and would like to discuss the matter further with you. If you could please send your contact information to paytonkaplan@texashealth.org that would be helpful. Thank you again for your review, Payton

I was referred by my PCP to their office and was told to contact them if I haven't heard from them in a week. I didn't so I called and was told my the receptionist she would have to take a message and someone would call back. Finally today...3 weeks after leaving the message I received a call to schedule. Told her I had already schedule and been seen by another physician and she could have cared less. Good thing it wasn't an urgent matter

Tried to enter this earlier but it closed before I could finish. Short waiting time in comfortable waiting room. Cheryl, the medical assistant is fantastic: efficient, professional, but empathetic. Dr. Alkhersam needs an easier name to spell, but everything else is great. He listens and takes everything into consideration. He respects patient input and explains the treatment plan. Also appreciate that he doesn't start out at ground zero with med, but carefully considers the medication changes

It took us 6 weeks to get my husband's FMLA and Short Term Disability forms back. They almost cancelled his benefits due to the wait! Too much wrong with him and his staff to list here. Just save yourself a headache and go somewhere else.

Dr. Alkhersam is a highly competent, caring physician. He examined me thoroughly and determined that I didn't need the EMG that my family doctor thought might be necessary. His nurse, Cheryl, was equally thorough in helping me. She apologized for the time it took for her to enter all the information from my patient forms into the computer. She wanted me to know that she wasn't ignoring me while we waited 10 minutes for Dr. Alkhersam to finish with another patient. My wife liked Cheryl too.
