What People Say About Dr. Stephen Ralph, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

They are careless and disrespectful in this office. The doctors are overwhelmed and lack the attentiveness they should have for caring for their patients. they make reckless mistakes at the expense of the patients. Dr. Ralph doesn’t even listen to his patients at all anymore. He talks the entire appointment and gives you no real chances to talk or even respond. He is no longer an advocate for his patients and I will NEVER come here again. Also, they lose paperwork and referrals a lot, don’t complete your records properly, and even hand you OTHER people’s paperwork because they don’t bother paying attention to what they do. Never again.

horrible experiences. he doesn't really listen to you. the wait time can be anywhere from an hour to 4 or 5 hours. some of the nurses are nice but others are not. they can be judgmental and careless. and the office manager is so disrespectful and lack of compassion. overall, I would not go back to this office again.

I am 54yrs. Old and have seen a lot of Dr's In my time but this Dr. Is the worst Dr. I have ever seen. I picked him because I read his bio and said a good listener and I have a condition that Dr's don't even want to consider are believe me unless I say I have been out of the United States. Never looked me in the eye are interrupt me could not evenwhen he asked me a question he would not let me finish answering what he ask me. I never do reviews but I felt like I was in a nightmare.

I am 79 yrs old and recently moved to Killeen. After researching Doctors in the Killeen area, we decided to select Dr. Ralph as our Family Doctor. It was the best medical decision we have made in quite some time. Dr. Ralph is the most dedicated medical doctor I have ever run across. He truly is determined to get to the cause of your ailment and will not stop till you are healed. In my opinion Dr. Ralph is a top notch Doctor.

Sad when your turned away because you can't pay office visit in full because you haven't met your insurance deductible. I was told that Dr and hospitals can't turn you away for not having funds guess it's not true in Killeen. All I needed was a refill I only take once in awhile.

I see my role as a team member in the patients care, providing as comprehensive approach as possible. Ultimately the patient has the final say in all aspects of their care, however.
