On Friday,May 11, 2012, while visiting my sister in Houston, I experienced severe NSAIDS adverse effects of excruciating abdominal pain and spams; continuous projectile vomiting, dehydration, and blood pressure of 164/114. Within less than five minutes, Pam, the RN on duty, escorted me into an examination room and in the epitome of compassion, empathy, and professionalism, immediately performed a very thorough assessment of my vitals signs; detailed and extensive inquiry pertaining to my current pain, and relevant medical history . Three minutes later, Dr. Mark IM, (ER MD on that day) assessed and evaluated my excruciating abdominal pain and promptly rendered appropriate medical treatment which consisted of: IV fluids,(for dehydration due to excessive projectile vominiting); Lab work (for purpose of obtaining baseline of my electrolytes); and IV medications for abdominal distress, spams, vomiting. I arrived at Sacred Heart 24 Hour Emergency Center at 9:30AM and by 11:30AM was home, resting quietly. In addition, Dr. IM referred me to a GI specialist. I was a RN for 23 years and worked many speciality units, including ER. I am blatantly honest to proclaim that all Emergency Centers, ER, and Urgent Care Centers MUST AT LEAST ATTEMPT TO ACHIEVE THE OUTSTANDING LEVEL of PROFESSIONALISM, INCLUSIVE of RENDERING EMPATHETIC and COMPASSIONATE CARE to ALL THEIR PATIENTS. Therefore, it would behoove other Emergency Centers in Houston to model Sacred Heart 24 Hour Emergency Center. Lucila Leal, School Psychologist
I have been under the care of Dr. Pearsall for a number of years. Before I met Dr. Pearsall, I didn't think that my condition was treatable. Many times I have been told to "Live With It" and offered anti-depressants. It's not this way with Dr. Pearsall. She asked the right question, derived an a…
Staff is nice, they got me a travel assignment that I love, but be careful. They placed me in a very nice apartment in a great neighborhood, but now two weeks into my assignment I'm still sleeping and sitting on the floor. It is not my job to know what the problem is or try and fix it, the fur…

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY OR HOW TO START. THERE IS NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE HOW BLESSED I AM TO HAVE FOUND A DOCTOR LIKE FARHINA. SHE LISTENS TO ALL OF MY CONCERNS. I HAD SURGERY WITH HER AND I KNEW THAT EVERYTHING WAS GOING TO BE GREAT. SHE IS KIND, FRIENDLY, AND ALWAYS AVAILABLE. I LOST TRACK OF HER BECAUSE I CHANGED JOBS AND INSURANCE AND THROUGHOUT THE YEARS, I WONDER IF I WOULD EVER FIND A DOCTOR LIKE HER. I WENT WITHOUT SEEING A OB/GYN FOR ABOUT FOUR YEARS. NOW THAT I HAVE FOUND HER I CAN'T STOP THANKING GOD THAT I FOUND HER AGAIN. ALL OF MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS HAVE HEARD OF HER CAUSE I CAN'T STOP TALKING ABOUT HER. I WANT THEM TO HAVE A DOCTOR THAT TAKES THE TIME TO LISTEN AND UNDERSTANDS THEIR NEEDS AND CONCERNS. I WANT THEM TO FEEL SECURE WITH AND UNDERSTOOD WITH THEIR DOCTORS AND THAT'S EXACTLY HOW I FEEL IN THE HANDS OF IMTIAZ FARHINA.. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR KINDNESS, GENTLE HANDS AND SOFT PATIENT VOICE.
We moved to Houston three years ago, and I got sick right after we got here. I was looking for an affordable place mostly because I had no health insurance at the time. I was very surprised by the quality of care I received during my first visit; although we have health insurance now, we still go to Clinica Corazon Hispan because they don't try to do unnecessary tests just to get money out of you. They take care of you fast, and in a very friendly manner.(Nos mudamos a Houston hace tres años, y me enferme justo después de que llegamos aquí. Yo estaba buscando un lugar asequible sobre todo porque no tenía seguro de salud en el momento. Me sorprendio mucho la calidad de la atención que recibí durante mi primera visita; aunque tenemos un seguro de salud ahora, todavía vamos a Clínica Corazón Hispan porque no tratan de hacer pruebas innecesarias sólo para obtener dinero. Te atienden rapido, y de una manera muy amable.
I went to this doctor for a well women's exam October 2015 and they charged me a deductible I wasn't supposed to pay so I got a refund. The doctor was nice and informative. The only reason why I give 2 stars. I called her office January 2016 for a birth control prescription, I couldn't get it for some reason and had to go back to see her and pay additional money just to talk to her. At my appointment she got pulled into a surgery so they offered another doctor who could see me, who was nice & informative as well. Yet when I get my insurance claim they charge me for a women's exam that I only get free once a year. The doctor simply talked to me and I got charged for an exam through my insurance I never had. The reason why I give 2 stars is because they have gotten my paper work wrong twice now and when I have requested a call back I didn't get one for 3 days.
my daughter dislocated her kneecap while dancing. I'm an ER nurse but when I saw her I panicked and did not know what to do.. thank goodness the dance studio knows about this emergency center. As soon as we got there, we were taken to their beautiful trauma room and the ER nurse and Doctor were both @ my daughters bedside. Xray was done within minutes and the result was back just as fast. We were out of there in under 30 minutes with my daughter in a knee immobilizer and crutches. Being an ER nurse, I am really impressed at the quality and efficiency of their services and how thoughtful and caring they were. I got a call the following day to check on my daughter... now that is what I would call five star service!!
After an accident on her scooter, we brought our daughter to Texas Orthopedic Hospital's ER (since it was a Sunday). We were seen within 15-20 minutes, not left waiting hours and hours. After a set of x-rays, the ER md on call explained to us she had broken her tibia and a bad break. We were admitted overnight and surgery was worked in the following morning with Dr Bloome. He took her early to avoid more pain and to prevent her from having no food or drinks for too long. Surgery went great! She did therapy in the PT job for a few weeks after surgery and now, she's back to her active self. Fantastic job by the surgeon, the nurses and the rehab dept!!!!
I am thankfully blessed to have met Dr Pearsall and to be able to receive EDTA Chelation treatments from him and his team. Due to my medical history and future risks, and concerning symptoms, I have completed the initial, prescribed, 40 weekly treatments and from there continue my maintenance treatment once a month. Dr Gurney is very knowledgable and I have referred many to him already. Thank you Doctor Gurney for making this treatment available and for your monthly sign-up plan that assists us, your patients, to afford to live healthier and longer. The "very concerning" symptoms that I experienced in the beginning, are all gone!
i absolutely love Dr Pearsall for my Child. I was put into a walk-in clinic, and was hating the long waits and the uneducated help. I switched my son to Dr. Pearsall and it was an amazing choice. Hes GREAT with kids...super playful, and gets the kids comfortable with him. He also meet for a consultation about your childs health at the end of every appointment. The wait time was NOTHING i went in there for my sons 18m shots, and we were in and out of there in a matter of 45 minutes. Staff is super Knowledgeable, super helpful. All around great experience. Im So happy to have a great dr for my son.
I have been provided excellent care by Dr. Waidhofer through the years since the opening of his practice almost three decades ago. Time is always taken to explain situations and careful measures with medicines prescribed for best results. I appreciate the doctor's "old school" attitude of patient importance over how many can be seen in a day, which allows the time I need to have all my questions addressed to my understanding. Now that I live in Florida, I have been told upon my return visits to TX my dermatology appointments will be scheduled so I can keep my physician!!!
I was a bit timid coming here with my daughter because of location. Her PCP was on the other side of town and close to closing time. I must say, I was quite surprised and impressed by the professionalism and care me and my daughter received. Even after the appointment the nurse called me to give me detail instruction for the medicine the doctor prescribed. And even the next day there was another follow up! Even my PCP doesn't call to give instruction or follow up! All in all, Dr. Jose Flores and his nurses made quite a lasting impression.
