Dr. Araujo was my doctor at Tomball hospital while I had COVID. His bedside manners are horrible and he's so quick that you can't get a question in at all. After I was released, I scheduled a follow up visit and his office staff lied to me and were very rude.

I called to schedule an appointment because my mother was not doing well at all and her PCP stated she needed to see him as soon as possible. The lady that answered stated she couldn't do nothing I told her the situation and she said well you can go to the hospital if you want. I was shocked. I told her Dr Araujo stated that if she needed to see him she would be able to get an appointment when she needed it. She refused. She is a critical pt but she didn't care. Good doctor but bad staff!

In many years of seeing medical professionals at work I have seen a lot. Unlike so many I have seen Dr. Araujo is very thorough and caring. He listens and explains carefully so I know exactly what is happening and what if anything can be done for me. I do so appreciate having a doctor with all these qualities. Any patient under his care can depend on him to get the best of care.
