I was referred to Dr. Hensarling by another physician. I called Hensarling's office numerous times during a four-day period and left multiple messages seeking to make an appointment. No one bothered to return my calls. I scheduled an appointment with another physician. There is no excuse for poor customer service in a private medical practice. If Dr. Hensarling isn't interested in offering outstanding patient care and customer service to win my business, I will choose a physician who is.

My mother was a patient. The wait time is 2 hours or more. Mom has Alzheimer's and cannot sit for long (they are aware of this). We scheduled an appointment at 1:15 so it would be the first appt after lunch. We arrived at 1:10 and he headed to lunch and would be back in an hour and a half. I rescheduled and they canceled that one they day before. Cannot get anyone on the phone to schedule another appt. Will not return voice mail messages either.
