Dr. Karamanian (1) was unflinchingly honest in all of our interactions. If he said "most likely," I could bank on it. And, I presume, if he didn't think he could have helped me (and he did!), he would have been equally direct--without being painfully blunt. 2) He was always compassionate as to my feelings, fears, concerns, etc. 3) He is a uniquely gifted physician who definitely does not present as God's gift to the world. If you cite a contrary opinion, another treatment option or provider, he does not appear to have a defensive bone in his body. I happened to witness the man unfairly attacked by a competitor in a heavy-handed marketing guise, and his response was, "That really makes me mad," in the same conversational tone, seated upright at his desk, as he resumed our conversation. 4) Finally, I don't think I have ever interacted with a professional who was more passionate about his work, about being the best he can be, and about the quality of life of his clients. I have no doubt that I got the best medical care that was to be had from Dr. K, just as I'm equally certain that his next patient got just a little bit better care. I do not ever envision him ever running a medical mill or a half-dozen clinics. He's much more interested in the work than in the business.The number of walking wounded PCa survivors with which the current standard of care has left us is a disgrace on the modern medical profession, and my family and I are so grateful to Dr. Karamanian for doing something about it.

This was the best hospital ever they saved my life I want to thank all the people who helped and want to say god bless you all Susie Minnix
I had a very unpleasant experience at this hospital with the nurse practitioner (Katherine M). I went in late one night to the ER. Everyone else was nice. I was in excruciating pain due to bladder infection. She asks questions, instructs a nurse to start an IV, and then writes a prescription.I fill the prescriptions and take it accordingly.The next night, the same practitioner (Katherine M) was on duty.I explained how much pain I was in, but she tells me I'm not in pain. She offered to give me Morphine,and I told her I cannot be given narcotics. I overheard her on the phone, and I could hear the nurse practitioner (KMartinez) screaming,saying "WHAT..DOES..SHE WANT?!" This woman (KM) does not need to be employed as a nurse.She is not professional, lacks patience, and not respectful, saying "this is NOT Burger King, so you cannot have it your way".Not necessary to mention Burger King in reference to my health/ treatment.I had no intentions of "having it [my] way".
Ten nursing staff is great, by it has been my experience some foreign doctors there have little or no knowledge of the conditions they are treating patients for.I would not go back.
I went yesterday. I have stomach cancer, went in throwing up blood, and got the female PCA that the other's mentioned. I hate to say this but everything you will read about her and the care you will get is true. After me getting checked in by a very good nurse, in came the all too talked about female pca from hell!!! I was given a blue bag to throw up in and after being given some medication for nausea, about 45 minutes later I went to the bathroom while in there threw up again with total red blood. I asked for something more to help with nausea and horrid pain. My RN went to ask for something, she said tell her I will be right in. After 15 minutes the RN asked if she had came in, and I said no, he went to find her. In about 15 minutes she walked in and said I really see no reason to admit you or do anything for you, after all you have not thrown up again since you first got here. I said I just threw up again when I went to the bathroom a bit ago. She said oh well, I think you look good enough to be home, I don't see any reason to admit you here. I have terminal cancer. I had just came from the Dr's office where he had written some prescription's. On one it even said on it the I-9 code and terminal stomach cancer. When asked what medication's I was on at home, I showed her the actual prescription's my Dr. had just wrote for earlier, where she could even read what I have written by the Dr. on one of them, yet she couldn't see any reason to admit me????!!!??? I was discharged in 10 minutes while still actively throwing up blood with terminal cancer. This woman should not be allowed to even practice medicine, much less over see an emergency room (No Dr. came in to see me at all, with me being a terminal cancer patient). DON"T go and allow that woman to treat you or you're loved one!!! I am home throwing up blood and so sick I have not been able to even get up and enjoy my Holiday, when I should be in a Hospital seeing if I need yet ANOTHER blood transfusion, I've had 5 due to this type of Cancer. Yet an assistant to a Dr. not even a Dr. after being told I was still throwing up blood discharged, and falsified medical record's by saying I had not thrown up again since given the nausea medication, when I had. Simply wrote I was there due to nausea....not throwing up blood, nothing about me having cancer..... I will be contacting Administration tomorrow when they are open again, and tell them the real shame here is how many bad reports can be read and MOST are due to this PCA....
Don't go! People were rude! I went for an MRI and was told three days prior that if I owed money they would call back. After waiting an hour and them telling me that they did not have my insurance info,they tell me I owe $2,000. I told them I would pay $600. After going back and forth with manager they told me to pay $1,000 and I said I can pay $600. The manager said, "WEll Then you can leave". I left and called my insurance to explain the situation and they told me to go to Katy imaging because they only charge $425. Needless to saymy husband was extremely angry about the treatment and spokwe to the director. He apologized for the treatment,but it was too little too late. I took offf from work to be mistreated. I would have been treated better if I didn't have insurance and told them I can't pay anything. I probably would have been treated like royalty. I have found a new DR. and will never go back to that hopital and thankfully they didn,t take my financial offer because they were ripping me off.
For heavens sake, don't take anyone to the emergency room. I took my wife there after she fell, hurting her hip and back. We never saw a doctor, only a PA. She was snotty and treated my wife like she was an addict trying to get drugs. I couldn't believe it. My wife had such pain in her back and legs she couldn't urinate. The PA shouldn't be allowed to deal with patients and her supervisory doctor needs to receive a letter in his file for not doing his job. This place really is bad!
