I was a patient of Dr.Hagler for 5 years. In the beginning,he was a very good doctor who cared about the wellness of his patients. For the last year and a half,I noticed that all he does now is sign off on prescriptions and you don't see him unless you have a new illness. He is seldom in the office and the staff is always calling to reschedule appts. He also misdiagnosed a patient with a chronic illness that they in fact didn't have. In my opinion, whatever is going on with Dr.Hagler should be addressed because he no longer seems to care about the patients, has misdiagnosed a patient, and is never at the office.
Dr. Hagler seems to be a caring doctor but is overwhelmed by his patients. He is not afraid to prescribe medication for his pain patients which has established a large practice for him. Unfortunately he has a hard time following up on his patients. After a medication change that left me in withdrawal, I was unable to contact him (he was out for several days?) and his staff was of no help. I learned how important it was to have a doctor knowledgeable about the medication he is prescribing as well as a doctor who is available during a crisis.
Dr. Hagler is a nice guy who seems interested in me as a patient. I have no doubts about his medical credentials. However, since I've been going to him, I've not actually seen him until two hours after my appointment time. It usually takes an hour to an hour and a half to be taken back to a treatment room, and then he'll come in a half hour or hour later. Just can't afford the time required to be treated by him.
