in Houston, TX |
Was referred for poor circulation in both legs. He talked me through each procedure showed me pics of damage then proceeded to correct. Awesome Dr and Ofc Staff to include hospital staff. Very satisfied.
in Sugar Land, TX |
I waited 3 hours and 30 minutes to finally be told by the staff to reschedule. I had to pay my co-pay and I did not even see the doctor, the PA saw me for a quick scan, I'm not sure how that is even billable through medicare. Staff is inconsiderate.
Richmond, TX |
No regard for the patient's time, had me at the hospital at 6 AM for outpatient procedure. Walked into pre-op at 12:40 PM. Hospital called him several times, could not find him. Finally got a call back to say he was on his way, he was doing something w/ his kids!!! Got his feelings hurt when I expressed dissatisfaction w/ him being so late, said he didn't have to put up w/ this, stormed out of pr-op and refused to do the surgery. He must be a GOD for the hospital to allow this.
