Dr. Maureen Alexander
I had an absolutely amazing experience at Dr. Alexander’s office. I called to make appointments for my children and myself because we were all having allergies and irritation, and I needed an updated prescription for my glasses. I am a mother of two young children and it is never fun going to the doctor’s office. When we walked in to the waiting room, we were greeted by a warm smile from the nurse. I signed us in and sat down with my kids to fill out our paperwork. Of course that didn’t last long and my curious 3 year old began talking to the nurse and asking her questions. She was very polite and friendly which was a big help as it gave me time to fill out the paperwork. We were invited back to the exam room shortly after arriving. My 3 year old was first and sat in the chair. Dr. Alexander came in and introduced herself to us. My 3 year old is use to us going to the doctor for shots and she immediately told Dr. Alexander that she didn’t want any shots. The doctor was very reassuring and calming and told her not to worry, which really helped put my daughter at ease. The doctor showed pictures to my daughter to see if she could tell what they were from a distance. It took a second for my daughter to get the hang of what the doctor wanted her to do and where to look, but Dr. Alexander was very patient and friendly. The doctor even had to put eye drops in my daughter’s eyes and it went great! While her eyes were dilating, it was my turn in the chair. I had my one year old in my lap which made it challenging but both the nurse and doctor were patient and accommodating. One of the things I really liked was that when I was telling the doctor about the issues I was having with my eyes, she showed genuine concern and took the time to explain what was wrong and things I could do to help my eyes feel better. My 15 month old was the last to have his eyes checked. The nurse came in to help the doctor put eye drops in his eyes which was difficult but he got over it quickly. The doctor was having a hard time looking in his eyes because he kept moving. She had a variety of toys she brought out to keep his attention which worked for a little bit. I told her I was still nursing him and I could try to sooth him like that. She was perfectly fine with it and encouraged me to try. I worked like a charm. She didn’t make me feel self-conscious and she was able to complete his exam while I nursed. All of the rooms were clean, neat, and welcoming. Needless to say, I couldn’t say enough positive things about my experience here and would strongly recommend them. We will definitely make our appointments here in the future.

Urgent and Family Care at Avery Ranch LLP
I had a great experience here at Urgent and Family Care. Let me first share what happened with me- its an long review so please bear with me. We first went to other urgent Care and we had to come here when the first one did not want to work with us but I am glad we came here and it is going to be our urgent care going forward. So here is the story: It was Saturday and my 3 year old son had started bleeding in his ears so we thought we will utilize the Urgent Care of Kids at Round Rock for a quick check up. I checked my insurance website and they were not listed there as In-network. But sometime providers are not listed even though they are in network. So I called up there to make sure my insurance was accepted. The guy on phone told me that they generally accept my insurance company but to confirm if it will work with my specific plan, he asked me to come to the facility with my ID and Insurance card and he will be able to verify it. I took my son there. The two guys at the front office were cordial and were about to check my insurance when a lady working there told us that they can't check the insurance until they put me on schedule. A schedule in urgent care! I mean we go there for urgent need but anyway the guy told me they can just enter my information and see if my Insurance will work. I was okay with it but they lady again interrupted and handed me 5 -6 pages of forms and told me that I first need to fill those out and then only she will be able to check the insurance. I requested to verify the insurance information first and told her I can fill all the forms later because they would be of no use if my insurance wouldn't work and I will have to go to other urgent care (there is couple of them nearby). But the lady wouldn't budge although the two guys were ready to work with me. At this point my patience ran out and I walked out. Then I went to "Urgent & Family Care at Avery Ranch" and they verified my information immediately and provided us the care we needed. The staff, Nurse and the Doctor were very professional and super nice. They have all the equipment and very clean rooms. We were in and out of there in 30 minutes and most importantly with peace of mind. In Short, they were my second choice due to distance from my home but after the experience I had with them, they are going to be my first choice!

MedSpring Urgent Care
I went in for upper respiratory issues. I had pneumonia. I have COPD and have had pneumonia a few times. I know what pneumonia feels like. I told the dr. That I had pneumonia and I would like an x-ray and antibiotics. Not that I'm trying to tell the doctor her job I just know what pneumonia feels like. They did all the pre stuff like temperature and pulse rate and all that. My oxygen saturation was at 93 to 94. The doctor came in and insisted that I take his nebulizer and steroid shot because he was very very concerned about my oxygen saturation. I told her I would like to just get an x-ray and some antibiotics. I felt like she was just upsetting this other treatment. I am guessing she gets paid on flat rate and commission. She kept insisting so much that I went ahead and did it. Then she asked me if I still want to get the X-ray and kept insisting that I need to go to the emergency room even though my saturation for oxygen was not below the 92. I said yes on the X-ray and no to the hospital. They came back in after the X-ray and said you have double pneumonia. I said yes I knew that I told you that. And then she called in the antibiotics and such. It cost me an extra $85 for the other stuff that she did. When I told him I needed a doctor's excuse the next day they dated the excuse from the night before at 8:30 when I went in when my work didn't start till the next day at 7:30 in the morning. Then they could only do it for 3 days. So the third day is not covered. It is a Friday before the 1st of January and so I get next Monday after all for the 1st of January but now I will not get paid for it because I have no doctor's excuse for that day. I will never go back to this place again and I recommend that you read all these reviews before you do. So disappointed that it's just about the money. Donald Corder

Medi-Weightloss
I have lost 20lbs total in this program. I have been thinking of going back to my original size before I had babies for a long time. Medi-Weightloss helped me get there within 3 weeks! After that, I decided to keep losing some weight with the program. This is a medical and nutrition based weight loss program which targets fat in the body. In my case, the weight I lose is 85% from fat. It is not a hard process for me, since they provided a very practical grocery shopping list with more food options than I expected. No frozen pre-package food. This program teaches me how to eat real food and keep a healthy lifestyle to reach my goal weight. Their Nurse Practitioner Chris is very knowledgable and helpful. I have also learned a lot from Nutrition Counselor Robin about how to make tasty but low calories food for my family.I enjoyed every appointment with this clinic. Highly recommend for people who want to see the true result.

Interventional Pain Associates
I started looking for a pain management doctor after I had been hospitalized several times for high blood pressure. No one could say if my blood pressure was causing headaches or if the headaches are causing the blood pressure.I found Dr. Saleemi and she determined my headaches being caused from an old injury to my back and neck. After treating me, my blood pressure went down considerable and my headaches went away. I had have migraines for more than 10 years and they were gone after a few month with Dr. Saleemi's treatments. I wish I met her sooner. She has given me a life back and I cannot say enough great things about her. Any problem I've had has been taken care thanks to her. In addition to a wonderful doctor, the office staff is wonderful and very friendly. Thank you so much for everything Dr. Saleemi!

The Bariatric Center at St. David's Medical Center
The Cafeteria at St. David's has great food!! The people working at the food stations are always helpful & polite. The only complain I have which has become a big issue is: There are 3 cashiers that are always rude. One of the cashiers name is Shirley and she is mean and over charges customers. She never smiles and argue's w/the customers then she turns around and talks behind their back. Another cashier by the name of Veronica acts like she is the mngr and over charges customers as well. She also calls everybody Hunny. And lets not forget Jessica, bad perm, bad attiude, and over charges customers. I do my best to avoid going into their lines.Three stars for the food, the people who manage the food stations & the cleanliness of the cafeteria. No stars for the cashiers. Customer service needs improvement.

Acupoints & Herbs
Rose W. RN says: I am looking forward to having my next treatment ! I injured my knee 2 yrs ago- strained ligament not requiring surgery but still causing frequent discomfort with occasional major flare-ups. Having come from the traditional western medical background, I began to explore alternative treatments and healthier organic nutrition. I have finally found a true holistic approach at this practice. 3 words that acupuncturist -Sophia Andras stated about her practice was "Do No Harm". She certainly exemplifies that quote by her compassionate,caring and expertise style which is very genuine. Thank you Sophia for your care and getting pain relief. Rose W. RN , Austin, TX

I can not put into words how much better I am. I wish I would have found Dr. Saleemi before I had such a radical back surgery that did absolutely nothing to ease my pain. Dr. Saleemi has improved my function and pain level through non-invasive procedures. I am so grateful I found her! Also her staff are amazing. Dr. Saleemi's staff truly cares about you as a person and that just add to the experience and helps you while you are working with the doctor. You don't always got that whole package, but you do here. Thank you for all you have done to help me.

St. David's Emergency Center - Bee Cave
If you ever have an emergency near Bee Cave... Go to St. Davids! They are so wonderful, caring, and FAST! My friend dropped me off at the door and parked (parking was just outside) and before she could make it in I was already in a room with nurses checking me out! Really great service. Followed up with me to see if I was o.k. and just to let me know they would remove my stitches at no additional charge! I hope I never have to go to the emergency room but if I do I will choose them!

Westgate Skin & Cancer
The friendly and professional atmosphere was wonderful. I felt I was in great hands. The team made me feel comfortable and important. The doctor and staff did an excellent job treating my issue. I recommend them 100℅.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
