Patient Comments (2)
Fort Worth, TX |
Dr. Phillip's practice is a "unusual" set up. He has multiple offices, with only 2 doctor's rotating that only see you at the 1st appt. The rest of your care is done by nurse practioner's . He is a mostly "procedure" pain person, which is hard for patient's that do not fit in this environment. If you are not a person who will do procedures, this is not for you. He is quite educated & very knowledgeable, which is a shame due to the set up of the company.
