Would like to thank Dr Pirtle and his group for all help administrated to me while my stay in Tomball Regional Hospital. Dr. Pirtle has great bed side manners, excellent in explaining how his Group could help on on path of recovery. Yet after explaining to him the type of insurance I have, he raised no objection. In fact found no fault, even making suggestions upon discharge set up appointments with his office. No, his office said, we do not accept your insurance! WOW!

I have been waiting since October of last year to get my cpap mask replaced. After many phone calls to your office and being told it was going to be taken care of! February and NOTHING yet! I find that since Roxanne left, the office does not really care about their patients!
