Family Nurse Practitioner, Nurse Practitioner

Professional statement

Innovative Urgent Care and Family Practice Clinic is a local, privately-owned, health care clinic. We are not owned or managed by large corporations or hospital systems. Therefore, you will always visit with the same professional who takes great pride in providing personalized services in an efficient and very friendly environment. It's sole owner, John, has lived in Helotes for over 13 years and considers the San Antonio area to be home. He has been married to Irma, who is a nurse, for 23 years and has two children who are also very supportive and involved in his business. He has been working as a clinician in various ERs in the San Antonio, Corpus Christi, and Victoria areas, but has also worked in urgent care and family health settings. His passion, however, is in the ER and Urgent Care settings and the business aspect that comes with each. Before becoming a clinician, John owned and operated 7 outpatient physical therapy clinics located throughout South Texas for over 10 years. As a non practicing owner, the challenge and reward of not providing direct patient care was missing, so in 2009 he sold the business and enrolled in school with the goal of becoming a clinician and opening an urgent care practice. When not striving to keep his patients happy and healthy, he enjoys reading, golfing, snow skiing, and traveling with his family. He recently graduated from The University of Texas at El Paso with a doctoral degree as part of his continued commitment to providing the highest level of care in a cost effective manner.

My visit was great, the 4th Dr I've seen in San Antonio of the 4th he is the only one that really seemed to care in a city saturated with doctors who treat patients like cattle. His system pulled up previousmedical history, that helped him offer me some other treatment options for my migraines and other helpful medical advise. I feel very lucky, he is open late. Not a lot of options for patients that need to be seen after 5. So I hit the Dr Lottery here. The nurses were awesome which also a big shock. I am grateful, I feel 80% better and I know I will get to 100% by close of week.

Represented themselves as in network for my insurance. Took my insurance info and copay then send me a bill for hundreds of dollars a few weeks later saying it was out of network. Be careful before you visit.

Do not go here if you need Psychiatric care...it is an urgent care clinic. Actually, based on my experience I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone for anything! Schanen was very rude to me and made me feel stupid. When Ishowed him the medications I’m taking (2 of which are controlled substances), he was appalled and insinuated that I was doctor shopping. And “you shouldn’t be on all these medications at the age of 23”. He informed me multiple times that he was not a psychiatrist and refused to fill my medications. I told him that he popped up on Zocdoc under Psychiatry and he looked puzzled. Finally after grilling me about why I had moved from California to Texas he agreed to fill all but one of my medications. On the way out he gave me 2 pieces of paper, one of which was a referral to a psychiatric facility. A waste of my time and a 30-minute drive.

No wait and quick diagnosis. I was a little surprised it was an urgent care facility but the front desk was kind enough to re-assure me it would be billed as though I was visiting the family practice.

I had barely sat down in the waiting room before i was called back. Kristin took my vitals, and she was great! I only waited in the room for maybe 5 minutes before John came in. He listened to my concernsand offered advice. Wrote me a prescription for what i needed, and provided documentation for my workplace. I was in and out in less than an hour. Great staff! Wonderful experience. Will definitely be rebooking!
