Ratings for Dr. William Black
Dr. Black has been excellent with my son. He has been our pediatrician for 5 years. He is great at calmly explaining his opinions and putting my mind at ease. My son loves him. His nurse is excellent at administering his vaccines and does a great job of distracting my son and keeping him calm. We highly recommend him.
Dr. William Black at Texas Childrens Pediatrics Katy, Texas is not the type of doctor I want my children visiting. He is very detached and perhaps shy, not the fun happy kid-friendly type of doctor that we all want. I went to him because of all the good reviews he had but found out that he's not as good as people make him out to be. One time I went in because my son had a rash and I expressed what I thought it might be- heat rash, while he went on to ensure me that its just excema WITHOUT LOOKING at the rash first. I asked him to check it out and he said "Oh yea that does look like heat rash." Another time we were in for a regular check up and he suggested DRILLING INTO my sons bone marrow because his (slight) speech delay at 1.5 years old must be due to iron deficiency anemia, DESPITE he takes iron in his daily vitamins and is way more active than any other toddler I've seen. He wanted to perform completely unnecessary intrusive procedures on my son for no reason. My son hated this doctor, he cried every time he came near him. My son currently see's a different doctor now and has no problems, no "iron deficiency" and never did, no speech delay, and actually smiles at our new doctor because she doesn't hold him down just to look in his ear. She's actually is good with kids and approaches him in a much more friendlier manner than Dr. Black as ever done. And she doesn't make silly diagnosis's either.
I highly recommend Dr Black. I have never seen a Dr as attentive and concerned as he was with my son who had pneumonia. Not only did he spend a lot of time with us each visit, he called me several times to check on him even a week after he was released to go back to school. I also have only positive things to say about the whole staff at TCP. The nurses were great too.
He's a great doctor, I like that he takes his time and answers any questions you have without rushing you. I couldn't have picked a better doctor than him. I honestly recommend this doctor for anyone who is looking or thinking of changing doctors. I believe my daughter couldn't been in better hands than Dr. Black. Thanks.
What I like about Dr. Black is that he really takes his time to examine your baby and answer any questions that you have. He is very reassuring and is quick to schedule a follow up for you if you still have doubts. He is very kind, loving and gentle with all the children and is an all around wonderful person.
