Unprofessional staff and physician. Will NOT be going back.

i would highly recommend Dr. Myatt to anyone needing a cardiologist. He was a very caring and a knowledgeable doctor, my husband was taken to Hillcrest in Waco having a heart attack. Dr Myatt was the doctor on call, he immediately came in and made us feel very comfortable. He immediately explained what he thought was the problem. My husband was taken to the heart lab and the problem was found. Our family is very thankful for his care. My husband is on the road to recovery.

Excellent guy!!!
in Waco Tx |
Dr. Myatt was very condescending and arrogant when I took my mother to her visit to get results of her recent stress test. He cut us both off in the middle of questions, told me he didn't know how he could make what he was saying any clearer, contradicted at one point what he had just told her. I would NOT recommend Dr. Myatt to anyone!

He does not engender trust. He seems annoyed if you try to get more information about your condition or if you want more details about the tests he orders or the results of those tests. During appointments, he leaves abruptly, practically bolting from the examining room, as if he does not want to be bothered any longer. He is aloof and arrogant. I would not recommend him to anyone.
