Review of Dr. Martinez


I question many of the doctors who treated my grandfather at VBMC. Am very disappointed with overall care. However, Dr. Martinez was the lone exception. Was compassionate, took time with my grandfather, and caught issues the other doctors did not have time to find. Very impressed by her knowledge and interpersonal skills. Highly recommend. Jon

Review of Dr. Martinez

- in TX |

I'm so upset. So we're here waiting with my dad. And a physician named sonia Martinez walked in with an attitude. My kids are in the room watching TV w my dad and she turns it down which is fine but my 6 year old messed with the remote and it turned up again. She storms off saying that she wasn't going to put up with the patient walking off on her and rude kids. My dad( 73 years old) was going to the restroom. He was already up when she walked in he smiled but obviously he cannot control it.

Review of Dr. Garcia

Almost killed me by not ordering, and by lying repeatedly about ordering, vital iron infusions. DO NOT TRUST YOUR HEALTH TO THIS PERSON

Review of Dr. Schwarcz

- in Rogers |

I want to recommend Dr. Schwarcz to anyone who has respiratory problems. He is a fantastic doctor and has vastly changed my life. I was recently diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension and diabetes. I am now on oxygen therapy and doing physical exercise thanks to the encouragement and support of Dr. Schwarcz and his team. Thank you!!

Review of Dr. Schwarcz

- in San Benito |

After many hospital visits, no doctor had been able to specifically diagnose me until Dr. Schwarcz saw me. I was about to be sent back home while I had a constant cough and chills throughout the day. Dr. Schwarcz saw me that same day and diagnosed me with Tuberculosis; I immediately started treatment. I am very disappointed with the doctors who were about to send me home. Dr. Schwarcz saved my life!

Review of Dr. Hoover

- in Texas |

This is the doc if you want someone who really cares, is patient and humble but knowledgable, always ready to take the time to answer or find answers to your questions. She is so helpful when it comes to making simple lifestyle changes that really work! And...she is readily available! I can even call and speak directly with her when I need to!

Quiero agradecerle al Dr. Schwarcz y su equipo, por la atención dedicada a mi madre en los cuidados intensivos. Quien ya está en la casa de regreso y muy bien gracias a Dios y a los doctores y enfermeras que la atendieron y cuidaron con tanta dedicación. Gracias y que Dios me los bendiga! Familia De la Rosa.
