Webster, TX |
I have been seeing Dr. Ly for a few years now, and I like his manor and style, but I think he my have too many patients. There are a number of times I feel like it is just short of waiting in line at appointment times. I've been there on time for my appointment, and then waited 30-40 mins. for him to come out and get 2-3 patients who have been there since before me. He should probably plan a few catch up blocks into his day so he's not 3 appointments behind at 2pm.

Tried to get my 16 yr old son an appointment (May) and his first available appointment is Oct. Wow, so much for the caring Dr who wants to truly help people. I was told you have to be suicidal to get urgent help. So very sad.

Highly recommend! Dr. Ly is at the same time very professional and fun loving. It is hard to find a doctor who you can connect with and have all appointments stress free. It's easy to make appointments and wait time is minimal. Thank you Dr. Ly!

Pros- Dr. Ly, what can I say other than he is the best Doctor I've known and has helped me out I would say even saved my life. He is smart understanding of my medical conditions and gives the proper treatment unlike other doctors. I could go on forever. CONS- Why can't I rate him 10 stars?
