We were there for 4 hours today. We had an appointment at 9:20 but didn't get in until after 10:30. Then, the doctor didn't get in to see us until after 11. He asked very minimal questions, and wouldn...'t even look at me when we spoke. He gave no advice on how to best help my child, nor asked if I had any concerns. This has been the worst service I have encountered here. See More

My daughter goes in for surgery on her leg two weeks ago. Surgeon takes one look at it and says it's cancer even though our pediatrician already told is it's not. After cutting the spot out of the leg... the surgeon uses quick dissolving stitches. Three days later the stitches are gone and now my daughter has a gaping open wound on her leg. We have to go to a wound care specialist who tells us that leg wounds can't have quick dissolving stitches because they take a long time to heal. My daughter can't even walk now. She's 11 years old and has a gaping open hole in her calf. Stupid Texas Tech surgeon totally botched her leg. We are now looking at physical therapy and possibly another surgery to fix it. Oh and when the biopsy came back it was a water wart they cut out of her, not cancer. See More

Shitty nurses who have no clue what there doing after what I heard about what my bestfriend just went through and put emotional stress on her. Your nurses are awful and obviously don't know what there... doing and refused to let her schedule her c section. And your nurses have no business in asking why she chose a c section.
I hated your services from the first when I got my birth control. Don't go to Texas Tech!!!!!

These people will not listen to you, I told them multiple times that my thyroid was messed up, only 1 time did they run blood work and they told me it was fine. We'll needless to say here I am a year ...later with graves disease, addison's disease, and neuropathy all because they didn't know how to read bloodwork!!! Thanks for making me have to take all kinds of meds for the rest of my life and now I'll also have a scar due to having to have my thyroid removed. Do not go here! See More

The interns, nurse's and doctors are some of the most amazing I have ever had in a hospital. We were far from home when my grandson got sick. They went above and beyond to make our experience as good ...as possible. I truly believe they saved his life. See More

Physicians on the Amarillo campus are using tele-medicine to detect skin cancer from a distance without making patients from rural areas travel. Skin cancer rates are high in the Texas Panhandle, especially among farmers and ranchers who spend extended amounts of time in sunlight.

New equipment at TTUHSC is making it easier for rural patients to see a dermatologist in Amarillo or Lubbock.
