Specialties

Dr. John F Bangston 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.

Patient for almost 10 years

My husband and I have been patients for almost 10 years and Dr. Bangston has always been courteous and on time. What I like most about him and his staf is their ability to get us an appointment, when we need it.

BAD BUSINESS PRACTICES

I was a patient of Dr. Bangston's for a few years prior to about 2006. I ALWAYS paid every bill; right at the time of visit most times. I am a 30 year old single woman who has worked hard to keep a good credit rating. Yesterday I looked at my credit report and a $25 fee from Dr. Bangston's office is in collections! When I called the office to inquire the nurse told me it was from a missed annual physical appointment and made some statement about outsourcing their billing. MY QUESTION TO HER WAS: "AS A PATIENT OF DR. BANGSTON WHO ALWAYS PAID HER ACCOUNT...WHY WAS I NOT NOTIFIED THAT I OWED MONEY BEFORE IT WENT TO COLLECTIONS??" I've had the same number since I was a patient of his...a simple phone call...even a letter to let me know I owed something and I would have gladly paid $25 if I had accidentally missed an appointment. (I do not recall ever making that appointment...but have no recourse to dispute it and the fee!) Instead I have to find out about it over 5 years later? BAD BUSINESS PRACTICE. Dr. Bangston may be a good doctor but he is directly responsible for his office practices and his staff...and that is where he FAILS MISERABLY. When I do return to Austin, I will not be using him as my doctor and I would definitely not reccomend him to any of my friends or family because of the lack of respect his office seems to have for patients.
