Dr. Ray was very nice and I was able to ask questions and understand what's going on.
He gives a very prompt diagnosis, this is my second visit, a follow up. At my first visit two weeks ago, he set up all my tests immediately, and was really thorough.
My first visit, I moved to Houston, have chronic kidney disease, he saw me within 20 minutes, I went down to the 1st floor, and had labs done, and have an ultrasound scheduled next week. It just doesn't get any better than that. Thanks to Dr. Ray, and his staff!!
He is very good and laid back. His bedside manner is excellent and he explains things to you. You don’t get the feeling that he is in a hurry or a pill pusher or looking at you as if you are his next Cadillac payment.
I had a 230 appt time. His office called and asked me to arrive at 1 pm instead. I arrive at exactly 1 pm. The office itself was different. A weird atmosphere and it didn't smell very good, not awful but not good either. There were 2 windows with notes plastered all over them to patients like "don't tap on the glass", "don't do this or don't do that"... etc. There was so much to read about what not to do that I didn't know what to do. It was kind of overwhelming for a first timer. After trying to read through all the plastered instructions, I finally found one that read sign in and take a seat. I did just that. After 5 minutes and not one had responded or acknowledged they knew I was there, I noticed a bell so I rung the bell. Still no one. I could see shadows through the window but no one acknowledged me. Even though, I was in pain, I had just decided to leave when someone finally greeted me at 1:19. When I mentioned that I had been there since 1 and it was now 1:19 there was no apology. She just looked at me and claimed that she had been there the entire time. I didn't say much but it was quite upsetting because I could clearly see through the glass window when she had walked up to that desk and took a seat. At 1:40, I asked how much longer will I have to wait to see the doctor, I was told that he was with another patient. Oddly, I was the only patient in the waiting area and there seemed to be one way in and one way out, No one ever left and I was finally called at 1:56pm. I'm not sure yet how I feel about the doctor. My visit with him was about 5 mins. I guess I will see at my followup appt.
His office staff is extremely nice. Dr. Ray seems very knowledgeable.
Excellent care! Dr. Ray was very professional and informative. I am definitely going to become a regular patient.
