Horrible dishonest office. Horrible rude Dr. Made me cry. Questioned my being on disability. No help at all. Big waste of time. Got great help elsewhere.

I was in a very dark time in my life living with PsA, in my journey, Ive been with them for a while and I am very thankful how patient and helpful everyone is here with me, they check everything and walk you through all the process required to help you get back on your feet, since I've been here the receptionist has always been personable, and really genuine, and understanding with people in line and Dr Fan will evaluate you and give you his honest advice and guide you through your journey, I am able to work and live life comfortably, and found relief thanks to the amazing people that work here!

I have been a patient of Dr. Fan’s since 2003. I live in Denton and it can seem like a long drive to my appt. I would not choose to go anywhere else. I trust him. He is kind and always answers every question that I have. I like his staff as well. He is a wonderful doctor and I appreciate he and his staff putting up with me all these years.

Dr Fan is fabulous. He is so knowledgable about all expertise. I wish he was my internist. I have been going to him for years. Dr Cheatom told me personally that he had hand picked Dr Fan to take over his practice when he retired. Be patient. You won’t be sorry.

I wouldn't know what Dr. Fan is like, because I've never actually seen him. I was transferred to his office because my original rheumatologist retired. After a LOT of hassle and rudeness on the part of his office staff, I saw Dr. Decardenes (sp?) twice. I actually can't remember if she is a doctor or assistant, but she was wonderful- kind, caring, and knowledgeable. I didn't even mind that the office was far from my home because I liked her so much. But since the last time I'd seen her, I've requested to speak with her on the phone and the front office refuses to allow it. They have argued with me about insurance referrals, hung up on me more than twice, and have been outright rude to me when they did deign to speak to me. When I told them I needed an approximate date for a visit so I could obtain a referral from my primary physician, they said, "That's Dr. Smith's (pseudonym) problem." Then she (her name was Dee) hung up on me once more. I just sat down and cried.

After seeing Dr. Fan in the past years, it was easy to get into the office, now that Dr, Cheatum office has closed it is sad. The poor nurses are running around doing their best to take care of everyone that they cant take a break. Dr. Cheatum’s patients come in and are rude to these nice ladies and give them a hard time. I used to be a Cheatum patient and i waited for hours. I know this is a change for there office and they get us back as quick as they can. I love this office still!!!!

Treated by Dr Fan appx 2012-2014. Everything great. I checked he was in my Humana network . I tried to get an appointment week before last. Was told he was not in my network, I'd have to pay out of network. Checked with Humana again, they verified he WAS in my insurance plan. Called office back, they advised I would be charged out of network rates. I asked the office manager give me a call. She never called. I called back, and a week 1/2 later, they still haven't sent my records to new doc

This office is poorly managed by Dr. Fan's nurse/Business Manager. The office sent a perscription to Optum RX on my behalf. Mistakenly sent for 50mg instead of 75mg. Unable to return the perscription, I was charged $234.. In order to achieve correct dosage, I had to purchase 25 mg perscription at an additional charge of $234. My request to speak to Dr. Fan was denied several times. Was told he would not return my calls. Nurse extremely rude & unprofessional..
