Sacred Heart Emergency Center
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

Manny Molinar - State Farm Insurance Agent
When our previous State Farm agent relocated her office to another part of the city, we decided to look for a new agent located closer to our home. We called Manny’s office and were greeted by a very friendly and professional staff. We met with Manny in his office that same week to discuss transferring our policies, and adjusting our level of homeowners coverage due to a recent major renovation of our home. Manny was very attentive and had several good ideas as to how we could better calibrate our coverages and save some money. Especially helpful was his suggestion to have our remodeling contractor sign a certification statement confirming that our plumbing, electrical and heating & cooling systems had been updated. This suggestion alone resulted in a significant decrease in our annual homeowners premium!Any time we have a question about any of our eight State Farm policies (homeowners, 2-life, umbrella, 2-auto, personal articles, and long term disability), all we have to do is pick up the phone or email Manny…he is very accessible, extremely knowledgeable, and always quick to respond. We highly recommend Manny and his team!

Manny Molinar - State Farm Insurance Agent
Through acquaintance, we met Manny prior to him becoming an agent. Because of his excellent marketing and networking abilities, came to know of him becoming a State Farm Insurance Agent. Manny Molinar’s State Farm agency in Houston, Texas (we are in Dallas, TX) whether through Manny himself, or one of his staff: (forgive me if I leave anyone out) Alicia, Alejandra, Jennifer, Jorge, or the excellent State Farm after hours support, reassures we can trust Manny and our insurance needs through State Farm. Manny is the consummate professional, and after being with State Farm for years now, I know that he and his team, will take care for our insurance, and financial needs in a timely, professional, and highly admired level of communication or Customer Care. I strongly recommend Manny Molinar, and his State Farm agency, regardless of where you are located in Houston, another city in Texas, or out of state. Consider this as my endorsement for Manny, and his continued success!

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.

Clinca Corazon Hispano
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.

WOMEN'S OBGYN CARE PLLC
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.

SKECHERS Factory Outlet
I WAS LOOKING FOR A PAIR OF BLACK SHOES FOR WORK, WHICH YOUR STORE HAD A HUGE SELECTION. BECAUSE OF THE BOGO THE STORE OFFERED I DECIDED TO LOOK FOR A SECOND PAIR OF SHOES AS WELL. HOWEVER I FELT REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE, BECAUSE SECURITY FOLLOWED ME ALL OVER THE STORE. WHEN I ENTERED THE STORE HE WAS IN THE CORNER ON HIS PHONE. BUT IT SEEMED THAT AFTER HE NOTICED ME, HE SUDDENLY HAD THE URGE TO WALK ALL OVER THE STORE, BUT ONLY IN THE AREAS WHERE I WAS TRYING ON SHOES. NOT TO MAKE THIS A BLACK THING, BECAUSE HE WAS BLACK AS WELL. BUT BEING THE ONLY BLACK CUSTOMER IN THE STORE AT THE TIME AND HIM ALWAYS IN MY VICINITY, I FELT A LITTLE OFFENDED. I'M SURE HE WAS JUST DOING HIS JOB. BUT I WONDER WHY HE WAS'NT FOLLOWING THE OTHER CUSTOMERS IN THE STORE. I BOUGHT THE SHOES THAT I WANTED, BUT I WILL NEVER RETURN TO THIS STORE AGAIN.,

Baker's Shoe Store
Not that there's anything wrong with it, just that we're middle class. I went in the Galleria for the first time in August 2007, when I first moved here and I heard raves about it from work. Unfortunately for me, when I walked in I was quite embarassed. I felt like I didn't belong and the sales personnel gave us dirty looks and wouldn't help us. Granted there's so much to do, and the apartments there are $5 Mill each, it's just not meant for anyone less than upper class. The worse thing of all, are the rich snobby teenagers with their roaring voices, they're so loud and abundant that it's hard to carry on a conversation. Other than that, it's gorgeous and you can walk for 4 hours at least and still not be done with the mall.

Mike Harris - State Farm Insurance Agent
I was looking around for my first auto insurance when I was around 19 years old. When I walked into her facility I was greated immediately and respectfully. She sat down with me and I was nervous at the beginning but Renata explained everything beautifully and thoroughly. Made suggestions on what things I should have, what things are included in my coverage, and the different kinds of discounts I can receive from State Farm. There was a team member working for her that denied me a discount because she thought I was giving her a form that was not correct, but then Renata looked over it again and recorrected it. I am impressed as this was my first insurance I applied for and I am utterly impressed. Recommend Renata Pennington

Sacred Heart Emergency Center
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!!
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.
