He runs around the office telling everyone he is broke. He has a horrible bedside manner. If you get two minutes with him you’re in luck. He manages everything with a referral and see you in two weeks. He yells at patients. Just horrible!!

Dr. Poonawala is an excellent doctor. He is one of the top 10 best doctors in Houston. He is very friendly and has a great sense of humor. He has a great bedside manner. He takes time to listen to the patient and answers all the questions and concerns that the patients might have. He gives enough time for the patients to ask questions and spends 20 -30 minutes talking to them. His staff is very friendly and helpful. They can get you in within a couple of days. I would highly recommend Dr. Poonaw

I can not answer all the questions below, as Dr. Poonawala is my mom's PCP and I only dealt with him in a hospital setting. I couldn't disagree more with the only other review posted here. He was very caring and had a great bedside manner when dealing with my mom. He would explain any question I had about her condition. He would ask me to step outside her room to talk to me about her. He said that when we were in her room we would talk TO her and not about her.
