I picked Dr. Contreras for my wife and liked her enough to switch my PCP. Dr. Contreras has gone above and beyond to help my wife.

Love my doctor!

First, the wait was more than an hour, second she missdignosed my case, I had to do an ultrasound and pay for it only to turn out I don't have what she said and she was so sure about it, and that the ultrasound will show it. Third one of my blood test level was high and she prescribed the wrong medication that would make it even higher.
Dr. Contreras' practice doesn't open until September 6th. It's impossible for this to actually be a patient. Dr. C hasn't practiced this month.

Dr. Contreras is, with much certainly, the best physician I've ever met in my life. Being the only physician in the clinic, I'm astounded by the sheer amount of care and compassion she provides to every patient. Sure, wait times will vary, but you're waiting for one of the best physicians in south Texas.

I arrived at 1:39 for my two o' clock appointment. After a full hour of sitting in the waiting room waiting to be seen I left at 3:00pm.
Dr. Contreras is no longer associated with the practice where this took place.

As nursing professional, I was very pleased with her bedside manners, intelligence and great knowledge. She answered all of my questions. Her staff was excellent.
