Great staff and great doctor very friendly and professional, the only problem is having to wait for usually around 2 hours to see the doctor. I would definitely recommend Dr Dones to anyone with spinal problems.

I have been waiting on an authorization for an MRI follow up for the past 2 months, got it approved for the wrong facility & they haven't resubmitted it again to the insurance which the insurance just takes 24 hrs to approve. Office staff NEVER answers phone calls or they either hang up on you!

in Port Isabel, TX |
Had testing done outside of this office, then was never called by his office to review the results. Guess I had to call them . Never really had a follow on any of the test. ALSO was charged over $2000 for a "piss" test!! I called the lab that did the test, Hill Country Toxology . They asked if I was on fixed income, if so I did not have to pay it...what If I had just mailed the check in? AND what in the world are they doing all those test on!! I am an elderly lady and not taking drugs!

I have had the worst experience with the office staff...they do not seem to care at all about the patient..every task is a chore for them..Dr Dones seems to be a great Surgeon unfortunately he has more than his fair share of rude and uncaring insensitive medical clerks...I'm sorry to say..making a different choice will save you alot o grief
