Nice and clean office staffed with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Chris Quirante PA takes the appropriate amount of time to ask and answer questions related to your healthcare. He also reviews all current medications to ensure they are appropriate. They offer weight loss programs/products, and facial rejuvenation products/procedures. Courtney comes once a month to perform Pap smears and she is very nice and makes you comfortable, I have no complaints, only good things to say. Labs and X-ray on site is definitely a bonus! Thanks guys!

Great staff, short wait time unlike other local offices where you'll wait upwards of and hour. Not to mention Chris goes above and beyond to listen and help you. They treat my whole family including my kids.

Dr Chris is the best. He listens and really cares about his patients. The staff are wonderful and there really isn't much of a wait time to be seen. I agree with other patients, who needs to drive to Beaumont and use half of the day only to be rushed through. I am so grateful for the Heart of Texas doctors and staff, I hope that they are here to stay.
