Do not use this Doctor! I was admitted to Memorial Hermann, Sugar Land, Tx. by my regular Dr. on Fri. I was seen by this Dr. on the following Monday (as he is on staff there). Never saw him before in my life when he took over my case! He's a regular Ambulance chaser! He kept me in the hospital an extra day for no reason according to my regular Dr. This is real problem when you go into a hospital and so called Hospitalists take over!
