Meet Our Texas City Team
Every member of our team is hand-picked by Dr. Hackbarth, who insists on hiring professionals who demonstrate competence, caring and, most of all, integrity. He believes that a person's trustworthiness and commitment to excellence are every bit as important as his or her technical skills.
We survey our patients regularly, and the words that come up most often to describe our staff are "kind," "gentle," "thoughtful," and "friendly." The staff is very talented technically and because we have worked together a long time, we've developed an easy rapport that helps treatment go more smoothly. Patients tell us they can sense this, and relax in the knowledge that they're in good hands.
