Patient Comments (3)
in Grand Prairie, TX |
I was referred by Dr. Tegala after having a sonogram on my thyroid area and there were 2 nodules found. I had thyroid cancer in 2012 and had my thyroid removed. When something like this occurs you hope that you are referred to a specialist that understands your concern or fear, someone patient and caring with a good bedside manner. My experience with your office was with Meagan in scheduling. I spoke with her a few times and she was very rude and uncaring therefore I have chosen another doctor.
Pamela, thank you for taking a moment to reach out about your experience. As we know the patient experience begins before an actual appointment, it's disappointing to read your review. We would very much like an opportunity to make this up to you. If you are willing, please reach out to us at (903) 416-6010 so we can demonstrate our commitment to providing exceptional patient experiences. Thanks again.

I am a type 2 diabetic.I have a goiter with nodules, I went in to see Dr. Whitfield at 4:15, to see if we should do a biopsy per my surgeons request. He accommodated me immediately, since I live over a hour away. He called in the staff he needed to preform the biopsy in his office within 20 minutes. They all stayed after hours to attend to me! Dr Larry Whitfield and his staff are the best!
