    North Texas Orthopedics

    The staff is very friendly and quick to get the appointment for me.  Dr. Briseno was very helpful and showed us exactly what was going on. I have dealt with North Texas Ortho previously as my son played football all through middle and high school.  They were very kind and informative then and still remain the same, that is why I went back and will go back to them if ever needed.

    Dr. Kristen Vallery
    This place is awful!  My pregnant daughter moved to Bedford in August.  She called to see if they accepted her insurance & made an appointment when they told her they did.  It was about a month out but she had seen her previous Dr. right before they moved so she figured it would be okay even tho she is high risk -Type 1 diabetic.  She dropped off all her records from her previous Dr.
    They called twice & rescheduled her so her appointment ends up being on 9/22/15. 
    She gets there, fills out the paper work & they tell her they no longer take her insurance!  She is 35 weeks along by now & hasn't seen a Dr. in almost 2 months because of the runaround they gave her!
    Don't take a chance with these people unless you plan on paying cash.

    Dr. Joseph Mendelson
    He was a personal doctor. He was highly recommended and he is a good doctor. He is the doctor everybody is talking about. His bedside manner was very good. He is very personable and willing to talk to his patients. The office staff is fine. I had to wait 20 minutes to see him. I didn’t have any complaints none whatsoever.

    North Hills Family Medicine
    We're retired. We just retired a couple of years ago. Before that, we had gone to this clinic because they accepted our insurance. Since we had been with them before retirement, they agreed to accept us using Medicare. So we continue to go to them. Before we had Cigna, they readily accepted, "Oh we can get you in tomorrow." But now, with Medicare, they're very reluctant to get us in right away. "Oh it'll be a week and a half to two weeks." So a couple of times, we've gone to one of these places that are popping up in shopping centers and malls where you can get right in to see the doctor and this and that because you can't get to see your regular doctor. So we've had to go there or leapfrog over the primary care people to a specialist who didn't accept Medicare and I had to pay out of pocket, because my wife was sick and she needed to see a doctor. But they said, "Oh it'll be week to 10 days before we can get her in" So we didn't go to an emergency room. We went right to a specialist and the specialist was super. Even though I had to pay out of pocket, we went to them. They backpedaled on their ability to get you in right away, just because we're on Medicare, because I guess, Medicare is slow to pay or doesn't pay the whole amount or something. I don't understand it all. But I think it's because of this Obama care which I am very displeased with. The primary care physician who is a nurse, prescribed some medicine for my wife which absolutely didn't work at all. Then we tried to get in again and all she did was prescribe the same stuff. That didn't work. So that's this deal where we had to go to a specialist. We made an appointment with the specialist. She says, "Sure come on in tomorrow." We went in at 8 o' clock. We were out of there at 8:45. My wife had some new medicine prescribed and it worked like a charm. Since we've been back twice. No problem, in and out in 45 minutes. The medicine works. My wife is back to normal and we're happy. But, I had to pay $1000 or something because the doctor doesn't accept Medicare etc etc etc. I've been in contact with my doctor a couple of times, for a refill of the prescription. They want you to come in. They want you to make an appointment, just to come in, to get your prescriptions refilled. That's fine. I don't care. But if you go in, they'll give you a new prescription let's say a refill or two refills a month and then two more months worth of pills. But now, if you just do this over the phone call, you don't even get to talk to the doctor. I don't even think it's a nurse. You just talk to somebody that mans the telephone and you say, "I need a new prescription for blah blah blah" and then they fax it in or whatever and half the time, they fax it to the wrong place. We've told them a thousand times to which pharmacy - a certain Walgreens or a certain CVS or whatever, and they fax it to the wrong one, at a different location. We keep telling them which one to do it and they keep doing it to the wrong one. That's a real irritation. These people are so incompetent that they either don't listen to you or they don't take good notes or whatever. If you call them up and ask them to do it over the phone, they only give you one prescription. They don't give you any refills. You have to go in to the clinic to see the doctor and then he'll give you some refill. That's another thing that irritates me with this place. I suppose they all do it that way. But we have no recourse. If we go to another doctor they'll say, "Oh you're just on Medicaid. We don't take new patients that are just on Medicaid. Sorry." But since we went to this doctor before, they took us, which we're happy. I guess, we're happy just to have the doctor. Now, they're ranting and raving, but that's the way it is. The office environment is terrible. You sit there with other people that are hacking and coughing. They've got the TV turned on, way too loud and you ask them to turn it down they say, "Well, we don't have the authority to do that." It's freezing in there all the time, even in the summer months. You go in and it's cold. They've got the air conditioning on, but they've got to turn it down to about 60. The fans are blowing on you and you're hacking and coughing yourself. If I ask them, "Oh well we keep it down to keep the germs down." Well, I accept that too, but my god it's so cold in there all the time. We go to other doctors and it's not like that. I mean, it's comfortable, but it's not freezing like this place is. They've got two TVs, one is turned to one channel and the other one is turned to another channel. They're both so loud, you can't hear either one. It's such obnoxious programming that you wonder, "Why in the heck these people have got these channel on in the first place?" Well, because the people that tune it in, don't sit there and watch it. If you schedule an appointment which is right before their lunch, which is about 11:30 or so or later in the afternoon before it's going-to-home time, you can get right in. But, if you schedule early in the morning or right after their lunch hours, all these doctors are either late coming back from lunch or late coming in or the doctors are seeing their patients in the hospital first or something. They're never on time. You could sit there and wait for an hour. If you have a 9 o' clock appointment or an 8 o'clock appointment, you're sitting there for an hour before you see the doctor or even get called in. They call you back and they get to you. They weigh you and take your temperature and then you go and sit in the room for another 45 minutes or so before the doctor comes in. That's what irritates me. You sit there for an hour out in the waiting room and then they call you back and you have to sit there for another half hour before the doctor sees you. That's so absurd. The girls at front are fine. They always greet you and they're nice. I hate to say this about the doctors, but they just don't seem like they give a hoot. They don't care. They're just there filling your time and doing the appointment and whatever. They just don't care, especially the doctor I go to. It's always like, "Well, you're here now. Let's hurry you up and get you out of here, so I could see the next person." This is just the two or three people that I've ever seen. Maybe they've got people in there that are really nice and friendly. The admin up in the front is great. They're a good bunch of girls.

    Geoffrey Barst MD
    He's very thorough and highly knowledgeable! He's since stopped taking Medicare patients, so I'm very happy that I can be with him. I stay with him because we've built a good relationship and he's very good about talking with you when it's needed. Highly recommended!

    Fossil Creek Family Medical Center
    He would call and leave a message and they would call the wrong number, leave a message (maybe), he would call again and leave a message. you never really were able to talk to a human regarding critical blood test results so you could adjust your medication.

    We found another doctor.

    T & R Clinic
    Horrible. I was in the office 45 minutes EARLY, but because I did not have all the paperwork filled out until 5 minutes after, they refused to see me! In my opinion, this almost borders on malpractice. Had I not been able to see someone else, and run out of meds, I could have ended up in a Diabetic coma...

    North Texas Health Care Associates
    I am supposed to have A1C and cholesterol screening done every 6 months. I was hoping that the doctor would expedite that work being done. She said I would have to make another appointment for a physical in order for her to schedule the work. I found her and quot;bedside mannerand quot; to be cold and not responsive to my requests. I will not be going back, and I continue to find a provider.

    Ankle and Foot Institute of Texas

    When it was determined that the injury I had suffered would require surgery, I researched between an orthopedic vs a podiatric surgeon. As my injury was foot and ankle I choose a podiatric surgeon and found Dr Cerniglia to be the best choice for me.

    Dr Cerniglia fully explained to me the procedures that were going to be done and why they needed to be done, he answered any questions I had and I did not feel rushed or like I was taking too much of his time when asking additional questions.

    On May 8th the following surgery was performed on my left ankle:

    Modified Chrisman-Snook Ankle Stabilization with Peroneal Retinaculum Stabilization

    Arthroplasty

    Excision of Fracture Fragment

    The surgery went very well and was done on an outpatient basis so I was home the same day. The following Monday I returned to Dr. Cerniglia's office to have my surgical dressings changed out. The incision sight was doing well and I must say the suturing was incredible. I had googled the surgery and seen pictures of others ankles and incision sights before I had the surgery done and from what I saw on some of the pictures the skill in suturing my incision area was above and beyond the average.

    It has now been eight weeks since the surgery and I am transitioning from non weight bearing to weight bearing. The incision site is healing nicely and no problems with it. I can tell the difference in the strength of the ankle between before the surgery and now even without putting full weight one it and am extremely happy with my results.

    Dr Cerniglia's staff is very professional without being and quot;stuffyand quot;, they greet me by name each time I come in and there is a personable attitude there that seems to be lacking in a lot of doctors offices these days. Very satisfied with the procedure, the knowledge and skill of the surgeon and the staff at his office and will continue to use Dr Cerniglia for all my podiactric needs.
