My mother and I have both been patients at Fem Centre Ft. Worth for years, and have been very happy with the doctors and staff... up until now. Last year my husband and I had just gotten married, and I didn't have medical insurance yet. As Fem Centre was too expensive without insurance, I got my well-woman exam done last year by another, cheaper doctor, and renewed my birth control pills through the other doctor. This year I have insurance and was excited to be going back to Fem Centre. I called about an appointment and they were booked until the 2nd week in June; but my pill prescription runs out several weeks before then. I was VERY surprised to learn that even though I have an appointment there, they would not help me by giving me an extra pill pack to tide me over till my exam. Their answer when I asked what I was supposed to do was, "Use condoms!" I couldn't believe that they wouldn't help me by giving me enough pills to tide me over until my appointment. It was rude, uncaring, and totally unreasonable. My mother and I have cancelled our appointments and will never be going to Fem Centre again. I'm disappointed, but they showed me that even as a long-time patient, they don't regard me as an important one.
After my hysterectomy, performed by a Dr. in another practice, approximately one year passed without that Dr. Being able to get my hormones lined out. I was a wreck both physically and emotionally. Luckily I found Dr. McWherter! He is brilliant, caring, and really listens to me. I have NEVER felt like he was in a big rush with me like many doctors have made me feel in the past. He is very easy to talk to which is why I am so shocked to read unsatisfactory reviews on him. If there is something you do not like or understand, ASK him about it. Voice your concern to him! I truly believe Dr. McWherter will do whatever he can to help clarify and rectify any problem you may have concerning your care. I have been a patient for approximately 10 years. Dr. McWherter turned my life around! For that I am forever grateful! I completely trust him and would never even consider changing to another doctor. Yes, his schedule is full, but I have always been able to get in to see him in a reasonable amount of time...even when I have been on a waiting list. In my opinion, having a full schedule indicates that he is in demand, thus indicating a doctor that people really want to see! Regarding the supplements, when I first started seeing Dr. McWherter, he recommended several to me. After awhile, I was able to discontinue taking the majority of them and he rarely asks me to take something new. If and when he does, it is for my own good...to HELP me! I am sorry some people feel as though Dr. McWherter is more concerned about making money than caring for his patients! Based on my many years of care, I highly disagree! Dr. McWherter is awesome! I highly recommend him if you are willing to follow his advice and protocol and in turn, feel better!
I have been going to Dr. McWherter for at least 7 years. I think he is amazing. Always thinking outside the box, looking for new ways to help his patients. I trust him. He is difficult to get in to see, but it is because he is in demand. Believe me, he is worth the wait. I do agree that his staff on occasion has an attitude, but I'm there to see Dr. McWherter, not his staff.
