"Dr Hischke has a great bedside manner, and clearly let's you know what's going on without talking down to you."
"My wife and I moved to this practice, as patients of Dr. Jeffrey Stewart, back in 2016. I was sick and my internist’s staff in Dallas told me to go to a ’doc-in-the-box’ or wait 3 days. Couldn’t do that, and it happened twice in a period of 2 months during flu season, so we decided to change doctors. Looking through our plan, we found this practice not far from us.We also found that Family Medicine Associates could see me that day and I was assigned to Dr. Stewart. Later we discovered they have Saturday office hours and at various times both my wife and I have been there on a Saturday if we were ill and didn’t want to go to the urgent care center or wait until Monday.A couple years ago Dr. Stewart began treating my wife’s high blood sugar and at a certain point her case became more complex so he referred us to an endocrinologist. This was a life-changing moment that probably saved my wife’s life. I’ve just been referred to a urologist for an issue that requires a higher level of specialty, the outcome of which is uncertain at this point.What you should take away from this is that it is comforting to have a physician who knows when it’s time to call in a specialist. Doctors don’t know everything about everything, if they are the right kind of person to know their own limitations and we respect this in Dr. Stewart. He has not steered us wrong yet and we have no reason to expect he would.I’d rather go to him knowing that if he feels we should dig deeper he will send us out to a professional colleague whom he knows for a higher level of care if it’s needed. It’s about what each type of physician is trained for.And for physicals, I have my annual physical every year, in 2 parts, with Dr. Stewart. This is not this medical practice’s policy, it’s standard procedure for a complete physical. Get your blood and urine work done first, and return a 2nd time to review the results and develop a plan of action. We are fortunate to have very good health care coverage and it covers the 2-part physical 100%. A lot of this depends on your coverage, so know your policy’s parameters before you go somewhere and think you are being taken advantage of.We’ve never had issue with the office staff, either, nor any billing issues. Don’t rely on others to know your coverage. Learn what is covered and for how much and pay attention, ask questions, and always review your EOBs. Especially in this tough time, this practice is well-organized to handle your needs in person or remotely and they seem to be a group of caring professionals who have just one interest - your well-being."
"He is an awesome doctor! Very knowledgeable and personable! I also, love the nurses and staff here, too. Just went in last week and they went above and beyond. I really appreciate them. I would definitely recommend Dr Hischke."
"Great facility, eleven years in a row for me. Most of the original staff is still here all these years. Taking great care during Covid to screen patients. Easy to use telemedicine platform, same great care. Shout outs to Braden, Hischke, Stewart and the many nurses who make it all happen."
"Dr. Hischke is a superb doctor. He is a very effective listener and pays attention to what I am saying about my particular issues and provides meaningful feedback and recommendations. He always follows up with an opportunity to discuss any other issues at the end of the session as well."
