About a year ago, my PCP sent me to Dr P to check out three possible hernias. Dr. P confirmed they were hernias, recommended repairing the two worst, said the other wasn't as bad and said that doing three at the same time was really tough on a patient, so I went with the two. I was astonished that he gave me his cell phone number and told me to contact him any time of day or night if I had any kind of problem or concern. I did have some discomfort at about 3:00 AM, so texted him by cell phone, and he responded right away with instructions... also told me to call him back if I needed to. I've never before had a Dr. give me his cell number, but now I know that he really cares about his patients and is "as advertised". I've now developed a new abdominal lump that felt to me like a hernia, called and got an appointment for the following day. He said it didn't seem to be a hernia, so ordered a CAT scan for me ASAP and set up a followup appointment. I appreciate that, having been American and raised in the US, having served in the US Air Force as a surgeon, he's about as American as he can be, and BTW, speaks better and clearer "US English" than the great majority of folks I know. Plus, he has a good sense of humor!
I was enthusiastically referred to Dr. P by my primary care physician to remove masses for testing. I obviously googled him to check out the hype, and saw a distinguished surgeon veteran with stellar reviews. His office was so friendly and scheduling was easy and more flexible than I expected. I was able to make an appointment the same week. The nursing staff was far friendlier than I've experienced in Southlake and Grapevine and Dr. P was very warm and friendly. His style is straight to the point and you can really tell he's in this job to help people. The day of my surgery, Dr P made sure my partner and I were comfortable, informed, and his sense of humor and good vibes really put me at ease. I should mention how quickly my surgery was scheduled from my initial appointment, I was taken care of within a week. The operation was quick, painless, and I remain impressed at the bang up job he did using one simple but tight stitch in my arm and souchers (sp?) that dissolved on my back... basically minimal scarring and I appreciated that! He followed up with me to make sure I was feeling well, and I can't stress enough how his positivity and friendly nature made this whole process stress free. Also, he accepts a wide range of insurance. 11/10 will recommend and I'll be returning to Dr. P for any outpatient procedures in the future. Just to hit it home, I live in southwestern Fort Worth and Dr. P is WELL worth the drive down I-20 to Arlington (20 min). You can stop looking, Dr. P is your guy
The doctor was great. Results have been better than I expected. But because I had to pay up front, my deductible, it would have been nice if they would have filed the claim. Insurance clerk seems not to care. Does not call back as she promised. They are closed 2 wks from Christmas through New years - Then she takes another week off. No one else can help with insurance. He needs a more competent person in this position. Even the doctor is not being reimbursed as he should because of her.. My advise is get an itemized bill from them ( if you can) and file your own claim.
