Dr. Foote - Lifesaver!
I have been seeing Dr. Foot for approximately 10 years. He always takes the time to listen to the patient and he goes further by explaining conditions and causes in laymen's terms, even drawing pictures to help me understand. He also doesn't give up. He does the extra research to find answers and ways to treat various conditions. I have two very rare conditions and he is able to treat both.

Dr. Foote - an A+ doctor and expert hematologist
This is my second opportunity to see Dr. Foote. I went back to him because of the very positive experience 5 years before. If I need a hematologist again, I’ll be back. Why? He is thorough, easy to talk to, practical, knowledgeable, he takes time with you, and he follows up. The US medical system needs more like him. Thank you Dr. Foote.

Doctor Foote has been my family’s “go to “ doctor for over 10 years. When others can’t figure things out, 9 times out of 10, he will. His straight forward demeanor and clear explanations are refreshing.

Dr. Foote is a wonderful doctor, not sure how I would make it through this breast cancer journey without him. His medical knowledge is vast but it is his silly sence of humor that I enjoy the most! It defenately helps when times get rough. I would highly recommend Dr Foote to anyone looking for an oncologist.

I'm a 15 year patient of Dr. Footes.I have always appreciated Dr. Foote as a caring qualified physician...... But I waited over an hour for my scheduled appointment this year and the same last year. I don't know what's happened, but the staff in the last 2 years has become unprofessional, and non responsive to patients. I love Dr Foote but he has a staff that does not support him appropriately. Irscw much sadness that I can NOT RECCOMEND THIS Medical practice any longer .

I have been under the care of Foote for nearly 17 years. He has taught me so much about not only my disease in general, but more specifically how it effects my body as an individual. Wether he makes a sketch of what is going on with your health or spending those few extra minutes to assure I understand he is the greatest hematology dr you will find in the Houston area. Not to mention he was trained by the best Dr. Rice(ret) and just so happened Foote trained my ex husband in onc/hem rotation LW

Dr. Foote is an amazing doctor. He takes the time to really listen to me and works hard to help me understand what my situation is. It is not unusual for him to literally draw pictures for me to "see" what a certain procedure is, etc. I have been seeing him for several years. I have two rare diseases that he treats and although they are rare, he really knows a lot about them. When my father was diagnosed with lung cancer I immediately called in Dr. Foote as I have full confidence in him.

I had a new patient appointment with this RUDE doctor , on May 10th . When I scheduled the appointment I also faxed over my childhood medical records , and any patient records the doctor needed to review my case ahead of time . Once I got there after signed in and paying copay I had to wait 2 hours to see this Rude doctor . Once in the room the doctor came in 30 to 45 mins later with a attitude , no bed side manner at all , nor pt. care experience hes just clearly a doc for the money. No passion
