  • She was excellent, professional, and just does wonderful work. She did a surgery on my breast and she also taken out my thyroid and I had an emergency situation with a torn colon and she did the emergency surgery on that but she's an excellent surgeon, cares a lot about women. I have no scars whatsoever on my breast which amazes all the other doctors that the woman is a good surgeon. I think her hands were just blessed. I would use her practice again in the future.

  • My primary care physician gave me a prescription for a colonoscopy as recommended by the CDC. I scheduled a colonoscopy appointment with dr. Provider name locked. 's office.
    Minutes before the appointment, I received a phone message stating that dr. Provider name locked. had been called out on an emergency. How often does anybody need an emergency colonoscopy? I scheduled a second appointment.
    5 minutes before the appointment, I received another phone message stating that dr. Provider name locked. had once again been called out on an emergency. Could there be more than a 1% Provider name locked. that a colon doctor gets an emergency call minutes before a given appointment?The appointment lady was very apologetic and convinced me to schedule a THIRD appointment. Very bad decision.
    Minutes before the appointment, exactly as had happened twice before, the appointment was canceled due to the doctor being called out an an emergency. I had to schedule 3 half days off of work. The probability that a colon doctor would be called out on emergencies 5 minutes before my appointments 3 times in a row is roughly one percent of one percent of one percent or a one in a million Provider name locked. .
    I filed a complaint with the Texas Medical Board for mistreatment of a patient.  In retaliation, somebody at Provider name locked. , the group including my primary care physician, blackballed me from all ARC doctors for "failure to establish patient-doctor relationship". This is usually used to filter out patients who miss many appointments or never pay their bills. The front desk people prevented me from ever seeing dr. Provider name locked. so this excuse is totally bogus.
    They also severed my relationship with my primary care physician with whom I have always had a good relationship. I believe it is completely unethical for some ARC bureaucrat to sever my relationship with my primary care physician for no reason other than complaining about patient abuse.
    I am filing a second complaint against dr. Provider name locked. 's office for filing a false report and for unethical patient mistreatment.

  • I was assigned to Dr. Provider name locked. after emergency admission to the hospital for a blocked intestine. Despite arriving by ambulance, I was in the hospital 3 days before she finally operated. The moment she touched my intestine it ruptured. The projected 30 min surgery became almost 4 hours. It was a bad start and the after care was dismal. I spent 18 days in the hospital and saw her less than 5 minutes a day. She was uninformative and generally unsympathetic. I developed a severe ileus (paralyzed intestine) lasting weeks beyond the more common 1-3 days after surgery. Her attitude day after day was "Hmmm. That's odd. Let's try this." Then she'd disappear. My recovery was slow and Dr. Provider name locked. 's answer to my "why" was "you're not the worst I've had...I had one other worse." I had excellent and attentive nursing by the hospital staff, but made little progress for weeks. I finally asked for a second opinion from a gastroenterologist who recommended several changes. I left the hospital feeling weak and unwell, but thrilled to get out. However, I continued to run fever daily and despite calling her office three times was told to take Tylenol and rest. After several weeks my fever increased and I asked to see her in person. When I went in, she was patronizing ("it just takes a while"). It was a bizarre conversation: I would say how terrible I felt, she would say I seemed to be progressing. I finally spoke angrily that I felt awful every day, was getting worse not better, and needed her to do something. She sent me for an MRI and found I had developed a severe liver abcess, a post-surgical complication that is symptomatic of poor care. Several days into what became 10 additional days in the hospital, I spoke with one of her partners who was covering for her and asked to change doctors. He refused but I persevered and asked the hospital for another doctor. I had lost all confidence in Dr. Provider name locked. . I am dismayed to see she is now performing bariatric surgery. Seeing her on Angie's list, I felt I had to post an entry about my surgery. My experience with her work -- including her post-op care and general communication skills -- is poor.
