My neighbor was having a hypertensive crisis and I thought she was having a stroke. I called ahead to Spring Branch, was told the ER was quiet and to come over right away. We arrived and were triaged immediately. She was seen by the nurse, brought to a room, vital signs, labs, and ekg were done quickly and professionally. Everything was carefully explained and my friend was made comfortable. The doctor came in soon after. She was given some meds, her pressure came down and she was soon ready to go home. She saw her family doctor the next morning and is on a program of diet, exercise and meds and is doing fine.
Pros: great care
