I have been trying for 2 months to have someone return my calls regarding my mothers medical records. She was diagnosed 2 days before passing in July. I do not appreciate the office trying to ignore me. Why? Did he do something wrong? Next step Texas Medical Boatd and file complaint. By the way, the 2 months my mother was dying in the hospital, he was gone 3 weeks on vacation with no one understanding what was going on.
in Burkeville, TX |
I have more confidence in Dr. Capellan than I have had with any other pulmonologist (4) that have treated me for emphysema - total confidence in him, Dr. Capellan was recommended to me 3 years ago by a friend with a rare lung disease, who eventually had lung transplant. I am so glad he did. Dr. Capellan is a true gentleman, kind, compassionate an caring to his patient and their family. He is thorough and takes as much time as necessary to explain and address or answer any concerns.
