Dr King and staff offered me and my wife the time needed in office to clarify the details of my up and coming heart bypass. The staff I met was responsive and attentive to my phone calls and schedule needs with regards to surgery. Dr. King is indeed a very busy doctor but that comes to be expected when you are seeing one of the "best heart surgeons" in the hill country as my nurses described Dr King to me during my hospital stay. Wait times in office were a bit long but after talking with the doctor for an hour during my appointment, I can only assume he provides each patient the time they need to understand their procedure. I didn't mind waiting for those reasons.

Horrible Staff asistants and compassion

My father was DX with Cancer, was told he would have surgery in 2 weeks on a Tuesday after his appointment with Dr. King on Wednesday. He had to wait 2 weeks after 1 call to get in to see Dr. King. I contacted the office on Wed before the Tuesday date was given at appt for surgery to find out WHY no one had called my father about pre-op appt, lab, prep instructions, etc. I spoke with office staff who informed me that the surgery has NOT been scheduled and that the person who schedules surgries is on vacation and will not return until next week. I blew my top. I said I want to speak with Office manager, she is the one who is on vacation and schedules surgries. REALLY they care and have compassion for PT's. STAFF NEEDS TO BE TRAINED and or clean house fire them all and replace with employees who will place PT 1st, before themselves. So she went on vacation, why was it that my fathers cancer should wait for her to have fun in the sun. She should have trained someone else to take over and schedule while she was out of office.WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO PT CARE, COMPASSION.Sad since Dr. king was nice. But office staff reflects bad on the Doctor.Not Happy with staff. I am a cancer surviuor myself. I will not be advising other to use this office based on staff.

A doctor that cares

I had some questionable I ages on an MRI scan that an orthopedic dr said I should have a thoracic dr review. I was able to quickly book an appt with dr king, and after a 45 min wait, finally was moved to the room. Dr king was quick to meet me in the room and took a good amount of time to understand the background issues. From there he took me to the computer and reviewed the images. He also asked for the opinion of another dr in the office. Apparently my image was not something that was easily diagnosed, and dr king, while offering his best guess, said he would also get the opinion of an interventional radiologist. He followed up with me with a phone call of the feedback and helped me set up my next visit. In my opinion, his caring (bedside manner) was off the charts high, and on that aspect alone I would refer dr king to everyone. I think there were new staff at the front desk and they should have kept me up to speed on delays rather than leave me sitting there for that long.

Great surgeon

He is extremely capable in his field. He performed a very difficult, long surgery with great results. There was minimal scarring and the follow-up care was wonderful. I highly recommend him.
