Specialties

Dr. Joseph Megwa has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

He is a band aide doctor and not a professional

He will medicate you over and over for the same thing but keep you on the previous medication. He has me on 14 medications. He does not take time to listen to your concerns and questions. I watched my mother slowly die because of a doctor like this and we switch and it was a transformation. I am going to have to do the same thing. He does not order testing to be done such as EKG's, glucose tests and he does not refer you to a specialist. I asked for pain management and he just said he doesn't believe in those places. His staff is incompetent. I have diabetes, high BP, obesity, pain in my hips and back, peripheral neuropathy in my feet and peripheral vertigo. His after hour care is horrendous. He doesn't explain what the medication he is putting you on. This doctor should not be practicing. He is in this for the money and not to help people.

Instead of seeing the doctor it was a nurse practitioner. Several conversation with the office before the appointment. No one told me I would not see the doctor on my visit. Did not care why I was there to see a doctor. it was the office in Arlington, TX.

Calling in

the time it takes to actually reach someone at the office actualy answers the phone is ridiculous. I have spent 25 minutes waiting for someone to pick up the phone. There are two options to leave a message and all it does is ring and then bring you back to the main menu.
