New Braunfels, TX |
I have come in 3 times. Have had to wait hours. This time appointment was for 9:15 am and checked in at 9. Didn't see him till almost 11:00. Missed other appointments I had that day. Thought early appointment would be better wait time. Think I will find another doctor. Can't sit here for hours each time.
Spring, TX |
He is condescending & rude. Xrays showed both my knees bone on bone. In his three minutes that he spent with me, his response to me was that I needed total knee replacements in both knees but that since I was fat he wouldn't do surgery on me and suggested I go get bariatic stomach stapling surgery done instead. OMG. Stunned me. He knew nothing about me, didn't bother to ask any details. Big NO. Never never, ever go to this doctor. Thank god I have found a diff. dr. now that cares about me.

The appointment was for 1015 did not see dr. Cuellar until 1220. Nurse working with him isn't not exactly the friendliest person you will ever meet. The staff at the front desk is nice and efficient. I would not recommend this doctor, because of the wait time and unprofessionalism. Spent a total of 3 minutes.

He was very rude to me and completely ignored what I was saying to him. By the end of the visit, he was convinced that I had no idea where my hip joint was, but he does because he's a surgeon, a hip surgeon! He also told me that there was nothing wrong with my hip joint. I went to another doctor a few days later and apparently, I know exactly where my hip joint is and there is truly an issue going on with it.
Very cold, non sympathetic, rude, sarcastic. I would recommend this provider if someone is seeking all of the above care
