Patient Comments (2)
in San Antonio, TX |
Dr. Angel Tamez is an excellent and outstanding surgeon who goes the extra mile to treat his patients with utmost care, genuine compassion, and heartfelt kindness. My family and I are very Blessed and grateful to have had Dr. Tamez perform an emergency surgery on my father for a gastro-intestinal perforation. In essence, he is truly a prominent surgeon with an invaluable dedication to his profession, and he has a wonderful, dedicated, and friendly staff at his lovely professional office.
Wait time is horrible. 2 hours to see the damn doctor. My insurance is paying for this. The office is way to small to see patients. I could not find a chair so I'm sitting on a bench in front of the elevator. The building looks like a flashback of the Brady Green clinic.
