McLane Children's Hospital Scott & White
I have been taking my daughter to Dr. Stephen since 2010, over 7 years. We live in West Austin so we see him in Round Rock which is close to a 1 hour drive. Recently we missed 1 appointment in this 7 year period, in which I got NO reminder calls plus my phone had been recently stolen so I had lost my calendar which was stored on my phone and now Dr. Stephen is refusing to see my daughter anymore at the Round Rock clinic and stating I must drive to Temple to see him from now on. I explained what happened and apologized however I am told it is Scott & Whites policy that if you miss 1 appointment you can only be seen at temple clinic or find a new provider! I even asked to see a different doctor and they will not let you change doctors either! I explained I can not drive 4 hours to and from to take my daughter to the doctor on top of pulling her out of school for almost the entire day. This is ridiculous and now I have to find another doctor to treat my daughters diabetes. This is not good service and even worse is my daughter has Scott & White insurance therefore there are very very few pediatric endocrinologist doctors in Austin or the surrounding area that accept S&W insurance

Female vets in need of counseling, watch out for Mark Awdykowyz. He is a sexual predator blacklisted on several adult websites. This man pays for sex and sex related activities. Can be found under his full name at and I'm sure he's fine with male veterans, but he needs to be kept away from the females.

This morning at 4:32a.m. I called the VA emergency room after hours number that is listed and waited 18 minutes on the phone to get through... Holding one phone in one hand and it ringing and ringing... I then also got my other phone and dialed the VA operator and explained my emergency and was put right through... I explained that I had been seen earlier in urgent care for Poison ivy and was prescribed Steroids yesterday, but when I went to pick up my medication the Pharmacy was closed. This morning I woke up with my eyes closing up due to the blisters forming and I am having difficulty breathing and they said there was nothing they could do for me and to wait the 4 hours for the pharmacy to open... Total lack of professionalism. They could at least answer their phones properly.

Screw Ups! Can't even get their appts. straight.Tell the Vet (and his wife) you are going to have a major procedure done and find out you are coming in for a consultation. I cancelled the appt and waited half the day for Dr. Wang to call me. He told me some thing totally different than he had told my wife and I earlier. Consultation today and procedure in 6mo. I've had the procedure before. The consultation was 3mo ago and procedure was to be today. He dictated notes wrong or sometning. My wife and I know what we heard. NOW I have to wait longer to find out if I have CANCER! AND, it won't be at Temple VA Hospital. Going Private! Screw this!
Tips & Advices
Many hospitals have their own websites that include information about services offered and how to contact personnel. But you can also search online, in the phone book, and through health and medical-focused review websites.
Medical service prices vary according to the hospital, the type of procedure, and many regulations. The price that a patient actually pays will depend on their insurance coverage policies. If they do not have health insurance, patients may establish payment plans with the health care provider directly.
Most Americans older than 65 are insured under the Medicare program for emergency hospital visits and basic medical care. Whether you are about to turn 65 or already have, you should familiarize yourself with the Medicare program and the benefits it provides. Medicare can work in conjunction with a workplace or other private health plan. Seniors should also take the time to establish legal documents concerning future medical care and end-of-life procedures. These include a living will, advance medical directive, and related documents.
Visitation rules vary by hospital, but in general, any biological or legal family member of a patient is allowed to visit them at an appropriate time and at the patient’s discretion. Friends are typically  allowed to visit at the patient’s and their caregiver’s discretion. A patient may also designate a support person to make decisions on their behalf regarding visitation.
Ambulances are driven and staffed by medical professionals who will transport patients to the closest hospital that can provide the specific services needed. Some hospitals specialize in certain types of emergency care - facilities that specialize in trauma, heart attacks, stroke victims, and children are a few common examples. The patient being transported has the right to request a particular hospital, but the ambulance personnel may refuse this request if they have reason to believe treatment is required as soon as possible. Paramedics may require you to sign a waiver before transporting you to a hospital that you request.
