Review of Dr. Varughese

-

Dr. Varughese was prompt, polite, thorough, knowledgeable, and respectful in communicating why he was coming to his conclusions after looking at my records. I so appreciate doctors explaining in a way I can understand why they are making the recommendations which are different from what I had heard. I could not more highly recommend him. He has impressive credentials and more than lived up to my high expectations!

Review of Dr. Dumitru

-

I've seen Dr Dumitru many times in the past four years, she's the best endocrinologist I've worked with in 32 years as a type 1 diabetic. Adjectives I'd use to describe her include: classy, informative, friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I frankly don't see how a person could enjoy a more effective doctor, I'm most pleased.

Review of Dr. Jogi

-

His front office staff told me they would be able to squeeze us in on Monday. After that, cancelled our appointments with other doctors. I called the office 3 times to ask for a time window. Said I would be given a call back. Nobody called me and when I called them again, they said we can schedule you for 6 months from now. I am meeting with him to schedule a 15 minute ultrasound. People visit doctors because they are sick and the least they can do is treat people with respect and integrity.

Review of Dr. Elhaj

- in Lake jackson, TX |

I may sound a bit over dramatic but I had been misdiagnosed for so long when I found Dr. Elhaj (from reviews). My first visit I remember crying uncontrollably and thinking I was crazy. He immediately diagnosed me. He had medical equipment in his office so he could test me along with my bloodwork. He helped me have a life again. I can never thank him enough. Yes it can be a wait sometime, But he gives me the time I need. The office personnel assists me with anything I need. Thank you Dr. Elhaj

Review of Dr. Jogi

-Lovelady , TX |

Dr. Jogi had thoroughly reviewed my records from another doctor prior to my first visit. He covered all of my concerns with patience and clarity. He is an awesome doctor with a kind heart.

Review of Dr. Elhaj

- in Houston |

All of the women in my family have thyroid issues. ALL of them except me until my late 30s. I have all of the symptoms but my test results only showed very low thyroid levels but not officially hypothyroid. He completely ignored my symptoms and my family history and told me that as women age most of them just gain weight (NOT my only system at all). FTR, I've never had a weight problem in my life until I hit my very late 30s and I don't eat bad food except on occasion.

Review of Dr. Elhaj

-Houston, TX |

While Dr. Elhaj will spend time with his patients, he won't really work with you to come up with a treatment plan. I would only go to him if your issues are textbook. I was unable to reach the office after leaving 3 messages on the patient portal and could not leave a voicemail for the nurse due to it being full. Also, my 2017 and 2018 appointments had a wait time of 1 hour telling me they are over-scheduling.

Review of Dr. Suresh

- in TX |

Setting up new patient appointment was challenging because the office does not take phone calls. Online communication is required. Although very polite, Dr. Suresh was dismissive of concerns and requests. We also had issues with billing. Overall, a waste of time.
