    Hopefully a new CEO will help that place. I just recently had a pretty terrible experience at the one in Plano. Their incompetence almost killed me. Thank God my FATHER was able to rescusitate me in their hallway. Where we sat for an hour and a half for no reason. I was supposed to have surgery but, they kept saying I had a balance when the fee was paid in full the day before. Meanwhile, I’m having seizures like crazy because the surgeon wouldn’t let me take my seizure meds for 24 hours. I said, you must not really want to do this surgery! I said, don’t be mad at me when you have to cancel the morning of, which is what ended up happening. They kept taking my father off to different places while I’m seizing by myself. I stopped breathing multiple times and thank God dad noticed from across the room that I wasn’t breathing and rushed over and gave me rescue breaths. You never leave someone that is actively seizing by themselves! How stupid are these people?! NOW they don’t want to give me my money back! I’ve already called a lawyer. I’m giving them the chance to do the right thing first. I was an O.R. nurse at one time, I know the ins and outs of a procedure so, I know that they did everything wrong, wrong, wrong. I’ve also reported them to the board. Beware of this place!
