Houston, TX |
Waited an hour in a half in a stifling warm waiting room full of people. Doctor listened to me for about 10 minutes, gave me a diagnosis and medicine, but neither of which worked at all for my ailment.
Houston, Texas |
Waited almost 2 hours to see the doctor. Every single seat in the waiting room was full and people were standing in the hall outside waiting. When we finally saw him, he rushed into the room, never greeted us and never introduced himself. He refused to listen to my input regarding my condition, scheduled a procedure for me and left the room within 5 minutes. I do not trust this doctor and will not return to this office. This is not patient care.
in Sugar Land, TX |
We waited over an hour and a half for the dr to not even review blood work, etc. He spent a total of 6 minutes with us and left. Clearly he doesn't care about his patients. We will not be returning to see him. He never asked if we had questions, never explained what he was doing or looking for. We've seen a liver specialist as well and have gotten way more information from him in one visit than we have from this dr in 2. He's not worth the time you spend waiting for him.
