Dr. Runyan explains the surgery and the reaons for it. Also, is very cool mannered which is reassuring. Do not feel rushed during contacts both at the hospital and his offices. His staff is very courteous.
Dr. Lewis did colon surgery back in June, 2015. He was very thorough in explaining the procedure. The operation came out good. The hospital visits and follow up office visits were excellent. He truly cares about his patients. (See Review)
My experience with Dr. Hawthorne was great from the first visit, all the way through my recovery. His office staff is very nice and accomidating. Would, and already have, recommended him to my friends. (See Review)
Dr. Longoria has been my bariatric surgeon, as well as general surgeon when I needed my gallbladder out and for an exploratory laporoscopy. He always takes the time to set me at ease, and explains things very thoroughly (even down to sketching diagrams!) I definitely feel that I make informed medical decisions when he is around. His care and bedside manner can’t be beat, and I strongly recommend him and his fellow doctors. Most importantly, he has proven himself to be a doctor you can trust. (See Review)
Dr. Anderson is very competent, spends a lot of time explaining, etc., very personable. (See Review)
I didn’t have to wait at my appointment with CTSA. When I was called back to the room, Dr. Russell arrived quickly gave me his undivided attention during my appointment. I had my umbilical hernia repaired after the birth of my baby (who was only a few weeks old) and he was able to consult me on how to return to breastfeeding quickly after my surgery. I’ve met Dr. Hawthorne and Dr. Anderson and they both seemed very nice. The office staff was friendly and helpful. (See Review)
