Ouch, that is awful - I have had a nail removed before and it hurt WITH anesthesia.

I've always been very pleased with the service there - he is so "no nonsense". And the one time I tried to change to someone closer I was VERY unhappy with the DR and the staff (children of tx pediatrics on bandera rd) so figured I shouldn't mess with a good thing and just kept going back to Dr Lantry.

I do wonder why none of his partners ever stay very long though.

But then there was that magazine article.....

hmmmm

I would not recommend Dr. Weise or Dr. Dupaquer (not sure of spelling) at South Texas Pediatrics located in the St. Mary's Hospital. Dirty place. A bunch of sneezing and coughing kids, and there is no way to get a separate room for an infant unless he is under 1 month old. There is no way to wait outside because there is no outside area acceptable for waiting. The receptionist messed up every name in my family. The doctors are cold and not responsive. My child had a big issue after 2 month old shots were done. The doctor said it is a coincidence and refused to send us to a specialist or to do any lab tests (like he pays out of his pocket for it, dah). I was not able to get brand names of vaccines given to my child to do a research myself. Also my child has bluish around lips and nose after being active or after bath. The doctor said it is OK, and refused to refer us to cardiologist or other specialist. It is a bad place to take your child.

I haven't been completely satisfied with my experience at Tejas. When they move the practice to the new office they're building in Stone Oak, I don't think we will be following them.

Thank you very much for the replies guys, I really appreciate them. In fact, I gave birth to my baby boy 3 weeks ago. And it just happened that they had list of pediatricians in the hospital that my doctor gave me but I don't know about her. So hoping that somebody can recommend me the good one here.

Ditto, A friend recommended Dr. Lantry when I was expecting your youngest son. My husband and I called his office made a "new patient interview" appointment, and LOVED him from the get go. Our son is now 8 and we've since moved to the Hill Country, and I don't hesitate to make the drive.

No matter who you choose, do call their office before you deliver and schedule a time to talk.

Default Dr. Lantry looking in kids best interest

As an RN and a parent, I would recommend Dr. Lantry to any parent in town. He does his research and tries to do what is in the best interests of your children. I am sorry to hear that you left the practice because of your situation...what you probably don't understand is that the injection to numb up the toe would probably have hurt much more than just yanking the toe nail out. And...in many instances, you can give the injection and it still does not numb up the toe and you have to keep poking and poking a very sensitive part of the body. I have known Dr. Lantry for a long time and he would not do anything to hurt a child because he was "in a hurry"! After 4 years, you loved going to his office...then you left for that. I would feel silly posting a comment like that.

I think it is important for parents to share information about their experiences, but please make sure you have communicated properly with the medical professional and their staff before risking the reputation of someone who has worked for YEARS in school and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to learn to care for our children.
