Texas Plastic Surgery - Dr. Jaime Garza
Hello. This is Dr. Jaime Garza responding to the review written on 7/14/2011 by "beautiful":I am so sorry that you didn't get the results that you wanted, and I'm sorry that you didn't have the positive experience most of my patients have. I certainly remember you and your surgeries. I first performed a rhinoplasty on you over 7 years ago. It is my understanding, reviewing our records, that you were quite happy with your results at your three month and twelve month postoperative visits and that you even requested a second operation after your three month visit on another facial structure to further enhance your appearance, which I performed to your satisfaction. I certainly wish that I could have your permission to post your photographs so that you would be able to see that your ethnicity was not only maintained but enhanced as you requested and I agreed with. There is no evidence in your postoperative photographs of a crooked nose or a pointy tip. I last saw you 2 ½ years after your initial surgery and all was well at that appointment. We never heard from you again until my office saw this review. If I fail to provide the best result possible given the limitations of the patient’s individual features, I'm always willing to make things right. Unfortunately, unless a patient tells me they're not happy with their results, I cannot address the problem effectively. Because of the disparity in our views of your results, I want to make sure that we do not have our wires crossed and that you are actually the patient that we are referring to in this response. I am more than willing to make every attempt to address and resolve the issues you have raised to your satisfaction. Every patient matters to me, so I hope that you will call my office to clear up any misunderstanding that may have occurred. Sincerely and respectfully. Jaime R. Garza, MD, DDS, FACS

Saw and was treated by this doctor for a bilateral inguinal hernia repair. Truely amazing doctor. Office wait was moderate length. Told me from the very beginning in good detail what he was going to do with the mesh. Listens and responds extremely well which seems to be somewhat rare for alot of doctors. Went to NE baptist to get my surgery taken care of by him. The hospital wait was 2-3 hours overall but once I was wheeled in and put to sleep, I was awake before I knew it with 2 scars on my groin. Hospital staff was very courteous and friendly, great nurses, as well as his own staff at his office. Pain was alot for me at first, but this was my very first surgical procedure. Was put on some basic hydros and the doc put a pain belt on me that was connected to my 2 nerves in my groin that greatly eased the pain with regular set injections of numbing meds. Overall I'm greatly satisfied with how it went and how I feel now after 2 weeks recovery and am very pleased to not have any of the problems I've currently had for years now with my 2 hernias and can now live a normal active healthy life again. It does take a while for your body to get used to the mesh though. Would recommend this doc to just about anybody. 5 stars.

Gonzaba Medical Group
Was planning to change to another practice until I found out we were moving out of state. I originally switched to this office because it was closer to our home. I've had three doctors and a couple of them spoke English with such a heavy Hispanic accent that even I had trouble understanding them and I've lived all over the world and have been exposed to many accents. My next complaint is that almost every time my prescriptions were changed or I changed pharmacies and gave them the new one, they'd send the prescription to the old one or fail to renew at least one of the prescriptions. The people were all friendly, but friendly doesn't help if they continually get something else wrong. There is a huge turnover in the Gonzaba Medical Group from what I can tell in doctors. One of the best they have is Dr. Denise Tarver. She only takes Medicare patients and is wonderful and thorough. Unless you get her first appt of the day or after lunch, expect a long wait because she doesn't herd her patients through like cattle and is constantly running late. But I'd rather she take her time and study my mom's records, although it's hard on the elderly to have to wait that long though, especially when a patient is over 90.

Laurel Ridge Treatment Center
I see that a lot of people are upset with this place, and I'm so sorry that happened to you! But my experience was really good. I was in Colorado Unit and the staff there was sooo nice. I told them before I left how much I appreciated them. One of them talked me through a breakdown, and assured me everything was going to be ok. Then the day before my discharge, another staff member saw me crying and took time to give me a charming pep talk. The daily groups throughout the day are pretty cool. Some of them are not so useful, but I felt the majority were really fun and worth attending. Of course there were some pretty awesome patients I got to meet too, but even if they hadn't been there, I still would've enjoyed my time at Laurel Ridge. My psychiatrist there was good about giving me "homework" to do to boost my self esteem, and he seemed to genuinely care. I saw another patient have a bad experience with another doctor there, but that was the only "bad" thing I saw. I sort of miss it there, actually. So for everyone who had a bad experience, not ALL of this place is badly managed. :) I only gave it four stars because yes there are some things they could do better but overall I am satisfied

San Antonio Center for Physical Therapy
I've been to a few Physical Therapy Centers over the years, but nothing compares to San Antonio Center for Physical Therapy! The staff is second to none. They are super friendly, and ready to help in any way possible.I really enjoyed all of my visits. It felt like I was working out with friends! Brian Nietz is an amazing Doctor of Therapy. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and an absolute blast to be around. I am a 40 year old athlete. A few months ago, I tore some ligaments around my ankle to go along with previous ankle injuries. My ankle was in pretty bad shape. The first doctor I went to said I needed multiple surgeries to repair the damage, and that I would never walk again. So I went for a second opinion. This time the doctor recommended Physical Therapy. To make a long story short, I went to San Antonio Center for Physical Therapy, and here I am playing basketball a few months later. Running and jumping after the first doctor said it wasn't possible. I will be forever in debt to Brian and his staff for literally getting me back on my feet! They are truly the best Physical Therapy Center in town!

Bandera Family Health Care
Bandera Family Health Care with Dr. Ramon Reyes and his wonderful assistants and staff provide the best health care in the San Antonio, TX Metro area. Reyes is a wise and capable doctor. His rapid dianosis and actions very possibly prevented my death when he determined I was infected with an e-coli infection. He initiated action and treatment that brought my temperature down from 105 to normal and continued treatment and medication till the terrible issue was resolved.. Over the past several years he continues to treat any of my ills with great success. Furthermore, his assistants and staff provide me fast, friendly, and excellent care and attention. He continues to add medical facilities/staff that provide one-stop examinations; thus, many times, eliminating the need to drive around the medical center area seeking exams. His facility is growing and expanding and I recommend my family and friends utilize him and his facilities. Again - Dr. Ramon saved my life. To me, he and his facility/staff are number one.

Nix Specilaty Health Ctr.
Do not go or send your child here. Thank God I was able to get my 17 year old son out of there after only 2 days. The nurses and aides are great, but beyond that this place sucks. Only two groups a day and all they talk about is how your day was. No teaching of coping skills or how to maintain on the outside. No programs on weekend. Only one 5 minute call home per day. Only 45 min visitation from 6pm to 6:45pm. He never saw his doctor, they have advocates that supposedly tell the doc how things are going. The one time he saw the doc, the doc said the advocate had not talked to him about discharge despite her basically promising him discharge today. I had to call about ten times today to finally get him out. I should say the advocate who always treated I and my son with respect, was out ill today. But there should have been better communication. Finally they keep the big kids in the same unit as the little kids like 5 year olds. My son said this was the worst psych hospital he had ever been to and he has been to several.

Dr. William, So sorry that I’ve gone to urgent care. Never thought they could have received me with a doctor, but God knows no energy is. I really have suffered. Also maybe because I didn’t want to have heart surgery that has never bothered me. The cardiologist told it was from birth. I hear they call it a murmur. I hardly never read the papers that I get at my appt. Only I started off balance than on top of it I fell. Luckily I didn’t break my ribs and Melissa Gonzales saw me at Urgent Care. But you don’t know how much I’m grateful. I should have gone to the hospital. There’s no words to express myself to all your employees. They’re very kind and willing to help me. I was an orphan. My Dad died when I was 3, my Mom in 1938 so I didn’t have any school. I would go to the field to pick cotton. Those times were hard, but at least I learned a little 3rd grade. Well again, I just wanted to thank you. May the Lord richly bless you. My God I brought back the 30. Sra Dora Villarreal

Firefly Pediatrics Pllc
I just moved to San Antonio and had some problems with my old Dr keeping up with records and really even listening to my concerns over my children. I called firefly because I needed help with my children's shots before school even though I though my kids old Dr had already done it, seeing as though I took them just for that reason and was told they were up to date. The Dr and staff at fire fly listened to all my problems and concerns about my children and immediately tried figuring out the problem and fixed everything withought a problem. I loved every staff member I met that day and the Dr came in several times asking different questions and just really taking the time to get to know us. It was quick,enjoyable, they took our insurance and I'm excited to finally feel like we have a Dr who pays attention. It's worth the 30 min drive from my house and I'm so please I found a good Dr in San Antonio for my babies. They deserve the best!!!!!

Dr. V has been my OB/GYN doctor for 16 years, since I was 20 years old. He is incredibly patient and caring. He looks you in the eye when he talks to you and when he is listening to you. He asks you if you have any concerns and addresses them professionally with educated answers and information. He has taken care of me many years prior to pregnancy, during my pregnancy, and now afterward. He was previously part of a practice with other OB/GYNs, but opened up his own individual office about 2 years ago, i believe. He told me personally that he wanted to do this because he wants to better serve his patients which he is able to do with his own practice. The hospital he delivers babies at is right across the street from his office. I have always been comfortable talking with Dr. V as well as during my exams, My mother has seen Dr. V for many years now as well. We both just love him! He is wonderful!
Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
