"You have put up with your condition until now, what does a few more weeks (3) until you can get treatment matter"? This was said to me after being told that "your blood levels of T are extremely low". Wonder how he would react if he was given the same "treatment"?

Dr. Hurst was very nice and personable to me and my 16 y.o. son. This was our first visit for my son since moving here from Florida. I enjoyed meeting and discussing my concerns about my son with Dr. Hurst. He was very emphathetic and caring. His office staff was very polite and responsive and even suggested I could save the cost of a co-payment if we switched my son's coverage from my to his father's insurance. I was so impressed with Dr. Hurst, I made an appointment for myself for next month.

Dr Hurst, is a great doctor he takes the time to listen to you. the wait is never long and his office is always clean. I havent been going to doctor Hurst for a long time but I would recommend his services to any of my friends. Its very hard to find a good doctor, and people fail to realize that if you dont come to your appointments the doctor can not take proper care of you. I read the contract and in the contract it does not say you have to do everything he tells you to do.So what mr. taylor wrote is a flagrant misrepresentation of the patient contract.shame on him !!!if a patient does not want to help his doctor take care of him then you need to find a doctor that does not care.have a blessed day everyone
