Rude is right.

I won't go into my personal story as that will do nothing of any substance here. However, I will personally confirm the other reviews that mention how rude the staff is, particularly the front desk. The doc was ok, but I wouldn't choose them if I had a choice. I'm not sure if they all need a vacation or what but the "bedside" manner there reminds me of scenes from One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest.

Office staff unprofessional and arrogant / rude

We left message for Dr. or her assistant to please call back regarding medication conflict. One week later, still no return call. When I called them, assistant answered and told me that she had sent medication order to infusion company, so she did not need to call me back. I shared that I had questions about the medication and needed her or the Dr. herself to call me back. She told me that Dr. would never call me back under any circumstances. I ask her why, because it seems odd that the Doctor will quite easily take the thousand of dollars that they get. She said she would put me on "HOLD", so I could calm down. What incredibly unprofessional service. When she came back she asked if I wanted to make an appointment, only then could I speak to the Doctor. I asked her since they had ordered a medication that has a potentially dangerous interaction with other medication currently being used, could she please ask the Doctor to check that out. She told me again that I would have to make an appointment to even get the Doctor to speak to me. When I told her that I really did not understand the rules that her Doctor has set up and I really did not wish to make an appointment, she said .O.K. and just hung up the phone. THIS UNPROFESSIONAL ATTITUDE SHOULD BE SURPRISING, BUT WITH THE PATTERN WE SEE IN MEDICINE, THERE IS NO REAL PASSION FOR HELPING THE PATIENT, EXCEPT THE PASSION FOR DOING YOUR JOB JUST ENOUGH TO GET THE MONEY, BUT NOT HELPING THE PATIENT. The Doctor herself is most likely not even aware of what is going on in her own office. The term "First, do no harm" is really brought into question here.

Four Stars

The doctor is very friendly seems to know what she's doing . We've been pleased with her as the doctor. Her nurse Reagan is very rude uncaring ,in a hurry and doesn't pay attention to what the patient is telling her. Very disappointed with her and her hatefulness. Dishonest person . Makes you not want to go back to that doctor she needs to change her staff most important to have a friendly New Nurse !!!!!!!

Went to see dr. after stay at Baylor and having temperature for 26 days.. Went here as primary dr. sent me. After drawing blood and telling me they would call me fri,. I did not hear from them. Called Monday and said I needed to go back to Baylor for more test. Said I was not going back to Baylor... Clerk said :your not going back to Baylor. I said no. Before I could say that I can get the test done locally at the hospital and save a 100+ mile drive, she said.. have a nice day and hung up. Didn't give me any info on test results. Infectious disease specialist.. I hope not, five days and cant get anything except the person that I saw wed. is not there at that location anymore and test aren't complete.
