You need a referal to a specialist by your primary doctor because he knows which one you need if you even need one at all . Lets say your lower back starts bothering you and you run to see a specialist in lower lumbar spines , he checks you out and says it's not your back , i think its your kidneys , you may need to see a specialist in urology . thats why you need a referal from a primary care doctor who can run a few tests/ blood work and send you to the appropriate specialist instead of you running around wasting time and money trying to diagnose yourself .

to Maryaguilarv You do have the right of choice so does everyone else ,so why has pgc denied everyone in the county the right and choice to have their heart surgery done by dr. yahagi . People who have heard of dr.yahagi and his skills have ask pgc if he (yahagi) could do their operation and they are told no for various reason. several patients have had yahagi do their operation anyway and then they were fired by pgc ! thats just wrong ! so wheres their freedom of choice ? You refered to HEB ,so here you go. HEB stops selling your brand of trash bags , what do you do ? you get a different brand or you go where your trash bags are . so looks like you need to shop at detar where your trash bags now are .
Ex , you especially should wake up . None of what i have said is " hear say " and a real savvy lawyer for that group would want to stay as far from me as possible . BUT , I am ready for it when your wish gets granted :)
page 3 of 3 sorry theres a limit on words.cont.several dr.s have left victoria and it wasnt for greener pastor , it was because they wanted to practice medicine not be harassed with mob style tactic by pgc . so in a nut shell after years of pgc telling patients cmc doesnt offer that surgery & continually disrupting the hospital setting and transfering all heart surgeries out when dr yahagi was standing by ready for them , it was the staff and medical staff that finally said mr. brown you have to stop this and now he is trying.this may cost cmc some money by pgc being out of cmc and only at detar if that the way it works out, but really victoria its not about the money , its about the quality of service you provide . I will stand behind cmc and the honor of dr. yahagi . Have a good day :) his and now he is trying.this may cost cmc some money by pgc being out of cmc and only at detar if that the way it works out, but really victoria its not about the money , its about the quality of service you provide . I will stand behind cmc and the honor of dr. yahagi . Have a good day :)

pgc then recruited dr.picket and dr.bhatia from houston and pawned them off to our community as some super hero surgeons from houston . These two surgeons were kicked out of most of the houston hospitals and had over a dozen complaints with the texas medical board but pgc thought they were good enough for you ,but too bad it wasnt about you . they brought them here to compete against taylor and yahagi . how do you feel now victoria ? This lasted a year until most ( IF NOT ALL )of the dr.s at detar said , "enough , get picket and bhatia out of here !" but they were here long enough to divide the business 4 ways which eventually was enough for taylor to leave as well. now we still have dr. yahagi who stuck it out through all of this , his record is better than any of the other three that left and better than any of the surgeons that pgc have sent their patients to in houston . they (pgc)will never send dr.yahagi a case because he choose to work with everyone and at both hospitals . By not joining their club exclusively they pgc began to send all heart surgery out of town as a means to choke out dr.yahagi . they (pgc) have denied patients in victoria the right to see one of the best heart surgeons this town has seen in 15 years by telling them that dr yahagi is new, he's no good , they dont like him , he's a crook .etc.... now detar has a heart surgeon who from what i hear is pretty good (dr.sikenhorse)not sure on the spelling and now he has some friction with pgc as well because pgc still sends some of there heart cases to houston to their friends . so tell me residents of victoria do you like pgc enough to help their friends in houston survive financially as well? why would you travel to houston put your family out time and money to have a surgery done by a dr. who has a higher mortality rate than the one you were denied access to in victoria ? you think mr.brown is trying to tell you who you can and cant see ? these guys pgc have been doing it to you for years by telling patients they could have their heart surgery at detar or in houston , why have they denied most of their patients access to dr. yahagi's surgical services ? ill tell you why , their concern is running dr.yahagi out of town not what's best for you . You victoria residents ,have and are paying the price for this messed up game with your health . you trust your dr to be on your side , with only your best interest in mind , so next time ask your dr. point blank " why do you not like dr. yahagi ? " it's not about you, it's about them
page 1 of 2 To happy girl and the rest who only know one side of the wonderul cardiologist p/g/c who have saved their loved ones lives at some point , 2 of these 3 cardiologist are good doctors and 1 is the worst iv ever seen , but i do understand your point . if my life was saved by a dr.(any doctor) i would defend him to no end as well . but good or bad does not give you the right to do what these guys are doing to dr. Yahagi which is why this all started.Dr. Taylor did not bring dr. yahagi to town . It was dr.'s chandna ,parikh and galla who sought out a surgeon to compete against dr. taylor because the two groups had a falling out and p/g/c wanted to choke taylor out by sending all there business to what ever cv surgeon they could get to come to victoria. They (pgc) heard of an outstanding surgeon at UTMB galveston (dr. yahagi) and they contacted him for an interview. during that interview dr. yahagi was told by pgc that he wasnt to help , talk to or even look at dr. taylor. , Dr. Yahagi was set back by this because he was recently out of training , didnt want to be on call 24/7 and he felt like having a partner would be a wise thing . since dr.taylor was looking for a partner and pgc seemed real fishy about the whole taylor thing he went and spoke to taylor and they became partners . this set pgc into a rage and they vowed to run them both out of town .
