The initial call to get an appointment went horribly. The woman was rude demanding information that is not currently available to me and when I could not provide her with that information, told me I could not be seen for over 2 months.

I waited for an appointment with Dr. Van Frank for several months- a situation to which we've become accustomed in Corpus Christi. We found that it was time well spent. Dr. Van Frank is warm, professional, knowledgable and caring. I was so pleased with his care that we referred our daughter to him.

Great doctor if you can manage to schedule an appointment without waiting for months. Too bad. I believe he has too many patients, as I have had to wait three months to get in to see him after having had an endoscopy in June and am still in pain. Requested my medical records to take elsewhere and was told by his staff that they wouldn't release them until after my follow up visit. Apparently the staff is unaware of patient rights to their own health records.

We were given an appointment fast because of a cancelation. He was very thorough and explained everything to us. We are very satisfied with him as a doctor. Thank you Dr. Van Frank
