Dr. C R Branch 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.

I saw Dr. Bean for the first, and last, time today. I was trying to speak to her about my Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, which she scoffed at and seemed to have zero interest in my severe every day pain, made worse when my hips pop out of place. I mentioned my Borderline Personality Disorder and she laughed, saying "Well that's 90% of women, am I right?" I just chuckled because I'm not very good in social situations (I'll get to that in a second). But no, that's not right. How DARE you trivialize those with BPD as though they are not living their own personal Hades every day, fighting constant thoughts of suicide and fearing that any second they'll go completely empty inside. And how dare you insinuate that every woman is suffering from some kind of mental disorder. Next I made mention of my severe social anxiety and how it makes everything harder. I've seen a psychologist who said she was astounded I ever held any job for longer than a month with just how severe my two disorders are. Dr. Bean, though, shook her head and said (and I quote) "That's crap. That's utter crap. (Name of employee) works every day with anxiety so that's just crap. That's complete crap." She wouldn't speak with me about any thoughts she had on my other reasons for seeing her, just treated me like a number on a chart instead of a person. I left before she was done and I am never going back.
Dr Bean, though she accepts Medicaid, refused to sign Medicaid Transportation reimbursement request, citing she didn't 'participate in that program'. In order to get reimbursed for fuel expense to take any 1 of my 3 children or 2 grandchildren to see her in our full-size gas-hog van, we had to request a Dr's note for school (since my eldest child, mother of my twin grandchildren)was still in high school at the time. They caught on to that approach and then refused to even provide that to us, instead insisting on faxing the Dr's note directly to my daughter's school! Then, when we filed a complaint with the hospital network, we received a nice letter from Dr Bean's office advising they were releasing my children from their care and we needed to find another (further distance) family dr. The Medicaid transportation program is not an optional program for dr's offices. It is a State of Texas benefit that is provided to Medicaid recipients and if the Dr accepts Medicaid, that makes them an automatic 'participant' in the Medicaid Transportation program as well. We were appalled at the way we were treated by Dr Bean and her staff (this was not the only complaint; there were others too numerous to mention here), and the absolute insistence of this practice office, to deny us our right as qualified Medicaid recipients, to a small reimbursement of fuel expense.
