Victoria, TX |
Trash Dr Two appointments he chose to not be there for so I'm supposed to reschedule a third time... Terrible staff didn't even have the courtesy to call and let me know so I didn't waste my time either INCONSIDERATE
in Nursery, TX |
He was in a hurry and did not explain to me exactly what the MRI said, he did not want to have anything to do with me after he found out Dr. Norvell had done surgery on my 13 years ago. I feel like his distance was because he was with Citizens and my Dr is from Detar so they do not help each other. I will never go back or refer anyone to him or his staff.
