Dr. Antoine Albert, MD

Primary Care Doctor

Professional statement

Dr. Albert grew up in French Canada and graduated from the University of Laval medical school at 23 years old. He practiced family medicine and worked in the emergency room for 9 years before leaving Canada for Texas due to weariness from battling socialized medicine. His first home in Texas was Ballinger, where he had a very busy family practice, worked the emergency room in San Angelo, and owned and operated a vineyard and winery. He lived and worked in West Texas for the next 13 years until he moved to the Metroplex and started full-time in Emergency Medicine, where he worked for 6 years until attempting retirement. Apparently, he was not good at retirement and returned to family practice in 2005. He bought Texas Medical Home in 2007 with his Physician Assistant, Shandolyn Story. The practice grew so quickly they had to move to a larger location in 2011. The list of services provided at the clinic is extensive, and in addition to treating acute and chronic illnesses for men, women, and children, there is a long list of procedures performed as well. All the clinical personnel at the clinic, including Dr. Albert, speak both English and Spanish, and although Dr. Albert’s native language is French, after living in Texas for the past 32 years, he is now fluent in Texan as well. His patients describe him as smart, funny, compassionate, and approachable. He doesn’t have much free time outside of work, but when he does, he enjoys spending time with his children and grandchildren, as well as driving fast cars, playing classical piano, and relaxing at the lake. His true passion in life is medicine, which is clear after you meet him, and he has no plans for attempting retirement again.

I would go in for a yearly physical and wellness check and he would just generally check me out. I'm used to doctor's running blood work. It felt weird to say "Could you please take my blood?" so I'm just lookingfor a different doctor. Also, the waiting room was a bit run down and gross. I'm pretty sure it was from all of the kids who came to visit but I didn't like to put my white purse on the chairs, to give an example. Everyone was really nice and his bedside manner was great, though.

Dr. Albert is very encouraging and a kind-hearted person. He cares for his patients, and told me that he would "cheer me on" to get better. He went over and beyond! Dr. Albert graciously gave me his time and greatest effortsto serve. I would highly recommend him and his medical team!

The doctor and his staff were great. However, I showed up at 12:20pm for a 12:30pm appointment. Was told they had me down for 1pm. Showed them my 12:30pm confirmation from ZocDoc and asked if I should reschedule since I didn'thave time to wait around for 40 minutes for 1pm to roll around. They said no, but then I sat in waiting room for about 15 minutes and in the back room for about 20 minutes before seeing doctor. It was well after 1pm by the time I saw him. With all of the waiting around, I wasn't out until 2pm. Needless to say, my employer wasn't thrilled since usually the visit doesn't take more than an hour.

I was a bit annoyed with the wait time but really appreciated Dr. Albert acknowledging the wait without my having to say anything and apologizing for it. The wait isn't usually near as long as it was today (about 30 minutes)and he explained how they had been busy after the holiday weekend.

My visit was pleasant and fast but maybe a little too fast. I don't feel like enough time was spent with me as a patient to really undercover all of my concerns and needs especially since I was a new patientto the office. Nevertheless, everyone was every nice and professional at al time so I would definitely recommend to friends and family if they need immediate care but not sure if I would recommend for primary care doctor.

Doctor was fantastic, his staff seemed to have little to no no knowledge about how to use the online system they referred me to. Also, would have to keep calling to finally get results from testwork since it couldnt be posted to the online system.
