My sister was mis-diagnosed by Dr. John...luckily, the treatments for her illness were the same as for the mis-diagnosed illness. However, the treatments that he prescribed were inadequate and she has now spent 8 months undergoing painful, expensive treatments that were completely ineffective...wasted, because the dosage was so very far below even the basic dosage that is known to be helpful and effective. He is uncaring, disrespectful and we could never reach him in an emergency if it was after hours for his office. He didn't accept patient calls after hours and was never on call. In our case, he was always looking for someone else to blame for his incompetencies and those of his staff. For instance, the insurance company, etc. Personally, I wouldn't let this man clip my dog's nails. His "knowledge" is limited and questionable. He is difficult. He "punishes" you if an appointment has to be cancelled, by not allowing you to make another appointment for 6 weeks. Very frustrating. He has absolutely no sense of urgency.Please, don't let this man "treat" you or someone you love....find yourself a real doctor. I hope this helps to save someone else from the problems he has caused for my sister. Dr. John really has no business being a doctor...much less a neurologist. If you ARE a patient of his, please get a second opinion.

I was very disappointed in the way he handled the situation he recently put himself in. He gave my sister a medicine for "seizures" he said she was having and the medicine ended up giving her the fatal rash, one of its side effects, that turned into Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. She was put into a burn unit in Lubbock for 17 days and nearly lost her life. She will now have problems for the rest of her life. Before she was care-flown to Lubbock he was making his brief 'rounds' in the hospital where he walked in to say "Ah, I hear Bailey has a little rash...yeah she'll be okay." After saying that and leaving her hospital room he never called out to Lubbock to check on her or anything. About a month ago my mom got a bill in the mail for his little visit he payed Bailey right before she was flown to Lubbock...personally I thought that was very shady of him to do, especially since he never called to even check on her. He can't say he didn't know it was that serious because A. he was her Dr. and he prescribed her the meds and B. she was all over the news. We will never use his services again and I will never recommend him to anyone for anything. And after a Dr's visit in Lubbock today Bailey was diagnosed with P.O.T.S. which has nothing to do with seizures...they aren't even related. So he mis-diagnosed her by a long shot and could care less that he nearly took her life by prescribing her a medicine she clearly didn't need.
