He was an excellent doctor, surgeon and honest human being...., May 19, 2013
Unfortunately, Dr. Michael Regan has passed away. He was my doctor for over 20 years. He was a good, compassionate and highly intelligent doctor who respected people. He will be missed by many patients and the medical community.
Short doctors office visit went really well, all things considered. :)..., Mar 28, 2013
This was my first time seeing Dr. Lazar. I had to take my kids with me because of spring break. The east Memphis office has a great kids room that is plainly visible in the waiting room. That was a great way to keep them occupied during the wait. Once I saw Dr. Lazar, things went really well. He listened to what I had to say and asked probing questions. After a short examination, I was on my way. As far as these things go, it was a pleasing experience.
Dr Shimkus is a gem, a highly recommended oncologist..., Mar 17, 2013
Dr Shimkus treated my wife's glioblastoma, working with doctors at MD Anderson. He is the most accessible and compassionate doctor I have ever had the experience of knowing. For instance, he has his cell number on his business card and responds to calls or text messages on weekends and evenings!
Unable to get the treatment that I came in for instead sent elsewhere to be treated for something th..., Feb 24, 2013
Can't beleive it. Was dismissed because of my inabvility to urinate. Was denied the option that was given to me by the nurse to come back and try again, the office manager Jeanette demanded that I leave IMMEDIATELY and that I was dismissed right, then while in the exam room, and NOT finished with my appointment with the doctor. Asked to speak to Dr. Revollo to find out why I was being dismissed and she REFUSED to let me EVER see him and that I needed to leave NOW. She threatened to call the police and press harrassment charges on me if I call there and to have me arrested if I come ANYWHERE NEAR the office. LIED to my insurance company that I was NON-COMPLIANT just because I was UNABLE to urinate at that moment. But 2-3 days later I get a referral for orthopedics for knee pain for 99 visits good till 12-31-2013 and x-rays all for my KNEES. I came in for WRIST pain and swelling and to get a referral under my new insurance for the Rheumatologist he sent me to on my old insurance. All this AFTER I was supposedly dismissed. The referral was mailed to me 4 days after the dismissal. They also refuse to release your medical records to you so you can find a doctor to get proper medical attention and treatment.
Peddles quack medicine and couldn't care less about a patient's time..., Jan 29, 2013
Doctor Masri leaves one wondering what planet he’s from regarding some of the questionable voodoo science he advocates and the dismissive attitude he takes to other specialists. He’s very big on advocating the use of a highly expensive allergy test that insurance companies won’t cover (that should clue you up) and which is largely discredited by allergy specialists and a medical community that sees it as outdated science that renders far too many false positives and verges on the kind of quackery one would normally associate with the more outrageous claims of some in the alternative medicine community.
Dr. Masri also took it upon himself to render ‘expert’ opinion on a bowel condition I’ve had for some years and which he claimed was all down to allergies and diet, thus segueing into his advocacy for the testing process mentioned above. The views expressed ran contrary to every opinion I’ve been given by a number of gastroenterologists through the years regarding my condition and how I should treat it, but what was even more disturbing was the manner in which he tried convincing me to cancel my planned appointment for the periodic colonoscopy my condition requires to check for inflammation and any signs of cancer. All of this of course from a medical practitioner I’d made an appointment to see regarding a mole on my forehead that had given me cause for concern!
To rub salt into the wound, a follow-up appointment to garner the results of a series of blood tests that were taken on my first visit showed that the clinic has as little respect for the time of its patients as it has for their intelligence when peddling garbage science. My appointment was for a little past 9 in the morning so I theoretically must have been one of the first patients for the day, yet 70 minutes later I had yet to see Dr. Masri, with no apology or explanation from the disinterested staff. What is it about doctors that they have so little respect for your own time, but wil
