Dr Sorce didn't take his time to throughly look at my son, and the day of the surgery, he came out for like 30 seconds to tell us everything was fine but he was all rushed and didn't asks us if we had questions. Do not recommend him at all
Mission, TX |
Dr. Sorce was very thorough. He asked me a lot of questions to get to my diagnosis. I had to wait 30 minutes, but the staff let me know he was delayed in surgery. He was recommended to me and I can highly recommend him!
Dr was great of course we only saw him for 2 minutes at the most. Staff is really rude! Totally ignore you. Anything I asked they didn't seem to know and would just walk away ??. All they had to do was call the insurance to find a hearing center that takes my insurance and set up an appt. instead I had to call the insurance they in turn called dr Sorce and as of 4/14/16 am still waiting for them to call back. I shouldn't have to do their job. But I am calling them today 4/27/16.

I could not speak about the Doctor's skills and experience I had with him as a Doctor, nonetheless I will say that after waiting for over an hour and a half I finally walked to the counter and told the lady that I couldn't wait any longer.... in that regard I feel the Doctor has no sight of seeing his patients as important Customers such that standard work to the extent possible could be applied to better take care of his very important Patients/Customers
