Specialties

Dr. Henry Mata Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

Scam?

I have been going to Dr. Mata for years. He has changed dramatically. During my last yearly exam, he spent less than 10 minutes with me. After leaving, the nurse informed me of the test he had scheduled. He had not ordered a mammogram. When I told the nurse, she checked with him and told me that I needed a pap smear first. I am 64, have not female organs left, and haven't needed a pap smear for a mammogram in years. He has always ordered them in the past. When she insisted on a pap smear, I agreed, only to be told that I would have to make another appointment for this. I asked to speak to the doctor. After waiting 45 minutes in the exam room, I was told that I would need to make an appointment to talk to him. Dr. Mata did order an ultra sound on my thyroid. I have had this done for years to monitor small nodules on my thyroid. At the ultrasound, the tech remarked that she didn't know why I was there since she saw nothing. A few days later, Mata's nurse called me and said a needed a nuclear test on my thyroid. I asked why since the tech saw nothing. She got huffy and said I had had a goiter for 2 years (no one had informed me of this before) and that this test was extremely necessary. I called St. Luke's Sugarland hospital for an appointment and was told the estimated charges were $350.00. The day of the appointment, they took me to a finance cubicle where I was again told the estimate was $350 and I would need to pay whatever my insurance did not. I was make to sign a paper stating this. A few days later, Mata's nurse called with the results - no goiter, no nodules! I told her that I had been told I had a goiter and asked to speak to Mata. She said she would relay the message. Next day, she calls and says Mata said I had no goiter or nodules. I said that wasn't the point - that I was told to take this test because I DID have a goiter. Again, I asked to speak to Mata, but was told I would need to make an appointment. A few weeks later I get the bill from St. Luke's. It was over $1000.00! I called billing and said I was told an estimate of $350.00. They said they had "no record" of this and that I would have to pay since I had signed the paper. This has GREATLY compromised my trust in the medical community. I am in good health, but now I will question any test that doctor's want because I will not know if I truly need them and how much they actually will cost. I feel that Mata and St. Luke's must be in partnership to bilk unsuspecting patients into having unnecessary test.

I love Dr. Mata and his staff. A doctor's staff and really affect your visit. Dr. Mata staff has been with him a long time and that is why they work so well together. Dr. Mata always spends time with me, explains things to me and listens to me. I hate to recommend you to him because he will get to busy, but he is the best full family doctor around.
