He is such a compassionate doctor and respects his patients. Such a wonderful human being.
Thank you so much!
I met Dr. H about 6 months ago and not only is he a great doctor but he is a genuinely nice person who really cares about his patients. And although I am not a patient, I am knowledgeable of his outcomes and who he is as a person. I would highly recommend Dr. H, in a heartbeat.
Thank you. I am very proud of my outcomes!
I went in because I suffer from chronic back pain and neck pain due to a broken back in a car accident and being hit by a truck while waking and thrown about 20ft suffering a brain bleed. When I saw Dr. Hall he treated me as though I was not being honest with what had happened. He did an x-ray (I suffer from sever neck pain also) and he disregarded my request for an x-ray of my neck as well saying it was 'unnecessary' His only concern about my health at all was the medicine I am taking for pain relief. He compared me to his brother who suffers from addiction. And treated me like I basically was a drug seeker. I then we to a pain Dr. and he did an MRI. Turns out do have something terribly wrong with my neck and 2 conditions in my hip. He didn't even want to see me for 2 months. I called his staff trying to get in contact with him to speed the process up. His staff was rude and he never has gotten back to me. I will never recommend him to anyone. A Dr. should never base his treatment on a patient due to his family issues and what someone elses problems. I should have been treated better.
I have to respectfully disagree with nearly everything you said. You left a message with my staff, and I returned your call that very afternoon and each of the next two days. You did not return my calls until days later, when I was happy to discuss your situation with you. I understand it is frustrating being in pain. It is also difficult to assess where someones' pain is coming from and how to best manage it - where to focus on, what medications have been tried, which others can be tried in the future, and what studies to get first. Most people don't appreciate having multiple costly studies ordered immediately that tend to make people's medical bills high. You must also give any change in treatment a chance to work - thus the two month follow up. This does not mean I "didn't want to see you". I am sorry for your pain, and sorry for your bad experience - I assure you it was the exception and not the rule, as the other comments here demonstrate. I care very much about each and every patient I see. I am also glad that you have found some help. Good luck to you. Sincerely, Dr. Hall
Today is 1 year since you did my knee replacement. Unfortunately, left S&W 2 days later. Keep hoping you'll come back up this way.
K - Yes - I remember you! I know the circumstances and reasons for my leaving S&W were complicated. I assure you I felt extremely guilty leaving all of my patients. I know that you know how much I care. I trust that your new knee is doing great! Dr. Hall
I really do like Dr. Hall. I really appreciated the fact that he showed me the cutest video of his two darling children to distract me from the fact that he was about to inject a needle in my knee. He was also very personable.
Betty, Thank you for taking the time to respond. I'm glad the video helped make the shot a little bit better! Hope to see you soon, Dr. Hall
Dr. Hall is just an all round great doctor. He is so down to earth with such a caring and sincere attitude toward his patients. He puts you at ease right away and takes his time to answer any questions you may have. He definitely goes the extra mile to make sure you are taken care of. I would recommend him to anyone!
Nicole - thank you so much for taking the time to post. I have enjoyed taking care of you and Ty. Glad to see him getting better and better! Sincerely, Dr. Hall
Dr. Hall we meet on 2011, I broke my tibia and stayed four day in the hospital, because of pain control, you guys took good care of me, and I'm very appreciated with you, it been a long journey but I am happy with the results. But I heard that you are living the Scott and white hospital. My question is who is going to take care of me when I have to come back for my next surgery. Where are you going? So I can make an appointment? Good luck Dr. Hall
Alma, Thank you for taking time to share your experience, and I of course remember you very well! Yes, it is true that I am transitioning and building a new practice. I will be in North/West Austin very soon (Aug-Sept 2014), and regret the inconvenience to you, and so many other patients. I hope to see you soon! Sincerely, Dr. Chris Hall
My concerns about this serious surgery were quickly relieved by Dr. Hall, Megan, and staff. After a month of horrible pain in my shoulder, I came out of surgery, spent one night in the hospital, and went home to recover. Dr Hall and his team told me exactly what to expect and how to handle it. Less than 1 week post surgery I was pain free! I'm still completing my physical therapy with Hannah who has been a godsend. I can't say enough about Dr Hall, his professionalism, his talent, and compassion. I would do it again without hesitation! Thank you Dr. Hall, your team and Scott and White!
It literally energizes my team to hear your story, and see your pain improve so quickly after reverse shoulder replacement surgery! I will let Megan, Hannah, and the other staff know that you wrote such kind words. Especially with all the recent changes in medicine, it's good to know there are still stories like the one you wrote! We love making people better! Thank you for your words and positive energy, Dr. Hall
I just finished my 6 week follow up with Doc Hall and Megan after my total shoulder replacement. We were all smiles over how successful my experience has been. I can't thank Doc Hall and his group enough for giving me a new found, pain free arm. Myself and all are so amazed that hours after the procedure I was completely pain free and hit the rehab within 2 days and am dismissed now, just after 6 weeks! His approach gave me confidence in his ability and the other reviews are so true! To anyone who is looking for the right surgeon to make it right, Doc Hall and his staff are the go to guys and girls! Thanks again Doc!
You are so very welcome! Your recovery was remarkably fast (much faster than typical, I have to admit!). Thank you so much for taking the time to share your positive experience, and I'll share your kind comments with the staff. Sincerely, Dr. Hall
I fell going down my sidewalk and broke my ankle. Dr. Hall didn't tell me he couldn't repair my ankle he just said "I will see when I get in there". Today I saw Dr. Hall and he told me he was happy that my ankle was repaired.Somehow I think he wasn't sure it could be repaired and have the wonderful results I have. All I have to say is, I truly believe no other surgeon could have repaired my ankle as well as Dr. Hall did.I am walking as well as ever.Dr. Hall is truly gifted. His staff is very good and makes you feel they are happy to help you and care for your well being.Thanks to Dr. Hall!
Seeing you walk again without pain is an example of how rewarding orthopedic surgery can be. I appreciate your kind words, and you are very welcome! Sincerely, Dr. Hall
Dr. Hall fixed my ruptured pectoral tendon. He explained my injury to me and went into details on how he was going to fix it. He was honest about the recovery and didn't sugar coat anything. He did an outstanding job and his office and staff are excellent.
I always enjoy helping a soldier get back to full duty! Thank you for your service, and for taking the time to comment. Dr. Hall
Dr. Hall is an outstanding surgeon! When I first went to see him, he answered my questions, provided intervention options, and showed me visuals that added understanding to my situation. I decided to have hip surgery and it went very well. It is a gift to have no more pain and confidence in Dr. Hall, the professional, whom I greatly admire for his skill and caring!
Thank you for your kind words. Looks like we made the right decision for you! Have a wonderful 2012! Dr. Hall
I had both knees replaced by Dr. Hall and I am very satisfied. I have no more pain in my knees. I was 87 yrs. old when I had it done and had no problems at all. I had Rotar cuff surgery done when I was 88 yrs. old and am very satisfied with it. I have recommended Dr. Hall to my friends that have knee or shoulder problems.
Thank you for taking the time to comment. Hope to see you again, though you are running out of joints for me to treat! Thank you very much for your referrals, and Happy Holidays! Dr. Hall
Meeting Dr. Hall and having him replace my knee was the best thing that I have ever done. Great surgeon, recovery was minimal, minimal scar. I would highly recomend him to anyone.
Knee replacement surgery is an amazing thing! Seeing patients get better makes my job extremely rewarding. Thank you for your kind words.
I HAVE BEEN TO MANY DOCTORS IN MY 60YRS. BOTH CIVILIAN AND MILITARY...AND I CAN SAY IN ALL HONESTY MY EXPERIENCE WITH DR. HALL AND HIS STAFF AN HOSPITAL WAS THE BEST THAT I HAVE EVER HAD..PERIOD! FROM THE INITAL APPOINTMENT TO MY MOST RECENT ONE,THE CARE WAS AS IF I WERE THE ONLY PATIENT THEY HAD. ALMOST NO WAIT TIME AND ONCE WITH DR. HALL HE STAYED WITH ME TILL ALL MY QUESTIONS WERE ANSWERED AN MY CONCERNS ADRESSED. I HAVE NEVER HAD A DOCTOR MORE CONCERNED WITH MY NEEDS THAN DR. HALL IS.HE WENT OUT OF HIS WAY TO MAKE SURE I WAS INFORMED,LOOKED AFTER,AND NOT MADE COMFORTABLE THROUGH OUT MY WHOLE SURGICAL EVENT.HIS KNOWLEDGE AN SKILLS ARE FIRST RATE AND I WOULD NOT HESITATE TO RECOMMEND HIM TO EVERYONE I KNOW.HE IS A CREDIT TO HIS PROFESSION AND AN ASSET TO THOSE AROUND HIM.THANK YOU DR. HALL YOU ARE A TRUE EXAMPLE OF WHAT EVERY DOCTOR SHOULD BE.
I will make sure I share your comments with my entire staff, both in the clinic and in the operating room. The team really enjoys hearing comments like this! You are welcome, and thank you for your comments! Dr. Hall
This doctor is fairly young however seems to be very detailed. He is very direct and does not beat around the bush. I did not want to hear that at 50 I was in need of a knee replacement. He listened and addressed my concerns. However you need to write down your questions in advance because like most good doctors he in and out of the room in a short period of time. My knee replacement went well and I would return to this doctor if I ever had the need. I hope I don't! I don't post reviews but I thought this one was worth the time.
Well I am glad you posted here! Thank you! I am very humble when I say that I appreciate having enough patients that want to see me to make time spent with each an issue. Certainly, that is one thing I (and many physicians) struggle with in today's healthcare environment. I look forward to seeing you again if you need me. (Thank you for the "fairly young" compliment, by the way!) Dr. Hall
I tore my ACL in my left knee late 2009. He performed reconstructive surgery on my knee. The pain afterwards was minimal. He and the PA (forgive me for not remembering her name) was wonderful from the 1st appt to the last one. I hope to never need to see him again, but if I do need Orthopaedic care in the future, I will, no doubt, go to him.
While I cannot guarantee that every patient and every surgery will have minimal pain afterwards, I am very happy to hear that you had such a good experience with yours! Thank you very much for taking the time to share your thoughts in this forum. Like you, I hope you don't need orthopedic care in the future, but look forward to seeing you again if you do! Sincerely, Dr. Hall
I went to this doctor to find what I had done to my ankle. As a dancer, I have hurt it previously, but this injury was in a new place and lasted longer than reaccuring pains would. He told me my body had "outgrown" dancing, and I'm only 16. He recommended I wrap it and take pain medication to dance through it, which I know would only worsen the injury. Overall I felt like it was a waste of time and money that didn't push me forward in awareness or healing.
I read your comments, and reviewed your ratings summary. Thank you for taking the time to share this information. I take pride in my ability to effectively communicate with my patients, and strive not only to find out what is wrong with them, but also to relate this information in an understandable manner. I also try to do so efficiently, as I greatly respect my patients' time. Of course, accurately treating and ultimately resolving the pain is perhaps the most rewarding part of what I do. I regret that you left my office feeling the way you did. While I hope the pain you felt in July / August is now gone, I would truly like another chance to prove to you that your experience was an exception, and not the rule! Sincerely, Dr. Christopher Hall
