Review of Dr. Karaviti

-Houston, TX |

She is knowledgeable and has been more thorough than any other endocrinologist. She has terrible bed side manners though. She does not take the time to educate the parents nor does she partner up with them for the best care of the child. Every time we ask her a question she acts annoyed and gives very brief answers. She also seems to rush through the appointments and never takes the time to explain lab results.

I would recommend him. He explained everything very well and the surgery went well.

Review of Dr. Muscal

-Houston, Texas |

Visited for my daughter's condition. Pleasant in office, however, does not follow through with coordination of care. He assured he would follow up with further testing/retesting of abnormal results. I repeatedly messaged him for status of such, 3 months later, still no follow through. Very disappointed with the Rheumatology department at this #4 children's hospital in the U.S.

Review of Dr. Motil

- in Lumberton, TX |

Dr. Motil has great bedside manner and is thorough. She not only explains things and answers all my questions, but she does with my 9 y/o also. We were thrown to the side with the pediatric gastroenterologist in Beaumont. We were beyond happy after our first visit here. The lobby is always clean and I have never seen it over crowded. The staff at the front desk and check out desk has always been nice. Dr. Motil's nurse is always smiling and friendly. The parking is as expected. Cafe is nice

Review of Dr. Muscal

-Magnolia, TX |

Dr Muscal was kind and spent quality time with us; however he did not listen. He made assumptions and failed to react to signs and symptoms. Consequently, my child suffered and conditions exacerbated. I would never recommend him.

Not trustworthy, did not share full details of the treatment options and would not pursue the appropriate treatment.

Review of Dr. Chiou

- in Friendswood, TX |

Dr Chiou is always very patient and kind. He listens to my concerns and answers every question I have. He once told me it is also his job to make the parents feel comfortable as well.

Review of Dr. Chiou

-Dayton, TX |

Dr. Chiou was very knowlegeable and took his time explaining to both the patient and parent. He seemed concerned for the patient's well-being and comfort. He asked questions to find out about progress and provided needed information during the follow-up.
