Knows his stuff! I had basal cell cancer on my nose. Though it was painful to get it removed, it was removed completely. Dr Sedrak is very busy, but still gave me enough personal attention to satisfy my needs.

The office should explain the expectations of what an "appointment time" means! Waiting 15 mins AFTER my appointment time to be taken to a room, 25 mins for the doctor to come in, and only seeing the doctor for 1 minute is ridiculous.

The doctor and the nurse were amazing! They were friendly and took care of my son. The front receptionist is a different story. She was rather rude because we showed up only 15 minutes before the appointment and not 20. She acted like I was going to have to reschedule!

I love Dr. Sedrak. The check in clerk was rude because I was 10 minutes late. She said she would check to see if the doctor could still see me because I was late!! I was the only patient in thewaiting room. She never checked with Dr. Sedrak. She said this to purposefully make me feel bad.

I loved the doctor and his assistants they were great! The only thing that really upset me was that I showed up early to my appointment and was seen AFTER my scheduled time. They had even taken someone who showed upafter me first. I was starting to get very upset.

I arrived 10 minutes before my appointment and after filling out the new patient forms, I only had to wait 5-10 minutes before I was called it. After my initial discussion with his assistant, I met with him and went overeverything I told his assistant. I specifically told him that I was hoping for a solution that was non-prescription to deal with my acne but every solution was strictly a prescription. I was hoping to receive suggestions on a lifestyle change to attain controllable results without the aid of prescription drugs. Thinking that he misheard me or just did not understand what I was saying, I stated again that I was looking for a solution that was non-prescription. Again he recommended prescription drugs/creams as the only alternative. I understand it was late in the work day, but I just was not being heard or my concern did not get addressed. He seems like a good doctor, but what's the point of going, if my needs are not going to be address.

I could tell that Dr. Sedrak was not in as good of a mood as my first visit with him, but he remained very professional and still attempted to show compassion for my concerns. In his profession, it is understandable andacceptable to be tired and stressed at the end of the day. I commend him for treating my minor concern with such great care and attention during a late afternoon appointment. I highly recommend this physician for both competence and bedside manner, two attributes that aren't often found in this generation of doctors.

I was not satisfied with the service I received at the Katy location. My appointment was on a Friday so the office was very busy. I was called back for my appointment after about a 30 minute wait. The physician assistancearrived promptly and asked me about my concerns and evaluated me but once I asked her about a particular prescription medicine for treatment she immediately agreed to put me on the medicine. There was no further consultation nor discussion of any other options. It was like I diagnosed myself and recommended my own prescription. She left and stated the doctor would be in for further discussion. After 10 minutes Dr. Sedrak came in and told me he was informed by the physician assistant on what meds I wanted to take. He then asked me did I sign the I-pledge packet and I explained no I didn't. He stated to go ahead a sign the forms and he would be back in. Later another tech arrived to do a urine sample and told me to complete all the necessary forms to take the medicine. No one thoroughly explained the medicine and it's side effects but I was told to just sign all the forms and do the urine sample. I never visited with Dr. Sedrak. I was rushed in and out and informed to pay $164 for the visit due to being a new patient. I was told to come back in a month to do more lab work and begin the medicine. Needless to say, I felt robbed and to make matters worse the front desk didn't verify my insurance information and as a result I was charged when they should have just billed my insurance company due to having a medical re-imbursement account. Don't go to the Katy, TX location especially on a Friday because you will be rushed in and out after recommending your own treatment plan. What a rip off.

First let me just say how incredibly sweet and nice the staff was at this facility. I work in the medical field just as these guys do in this facility and I must say after getting off of work listening topatients holler and scream at you all day it sure was nice to see smiling faces at the windows as well as the doctor's room once they took me back. When I got there I was 4 minutes late for my appointment. I didn't mean to be but I was looking for the correct building and suite number. When I got there they initially told me that they would need to see if the doctor could still see me because as a new patient I needed to be there 15 minutes beforehand. So what they did was ask the doctor if he would still see me since I was late. That aggravated me a little bit but if that's their policy, that's their policy! :-). I am very grateful that he decided to see me anyway but for my next appointment I will have to do something a little different pertaining to the time. I was there well before my schedule appointment time but I hope not to have this issue again since I now know where the facility is. It would be nice if they would be a little lenient on their policy pertaining to timeliness. While in the doctor's office , the doctor asked me what I was there for , I told him my reasons , he gave me some prescriptions and that was it. The entire appointment lasted between 3 to 5 minutes and that's only because I kept asking questions. What would have made my experience a perfect 10 what if the doctor would have spent a little bit more time with me explaining why my skin was the way it was at my age, things to avoid it etc..., other than that he's a very pleasant man, and the nurse that was with him was superb in my book. I will definitely be following back up on this blog to let you know how the medication works. Overall experience was a A-.

Physician was fine- initially. Front office Staff not knowledgeable. Incorrectly overcharged. Did not look at insurance card or verify correctly Left a message and was told someone would call the next day. No return call. Actually went backto the office and was told the office manager would call me back. Still waiting. Lab work results were sent within one day; have called the office and told they are still waiting. Not impressed.

I actually think I was confused about my appointment date. My wife and I both had appointments with Dr. Sedrak on different dates, and I think I showed up for her time. I saw the doctor and all went well. Hopefully her appointment has not been cancelled because of this.
