Dr. Dieguez took the results from my echocardiogram and did an excellent job, in terms I could understand, of explaining the meaning and consequences of those results. He also, immediately, made an appointment for me to do the next steps necessary. He is personable, friendly, knowledgeable and kind. I highly recommend him.

The only doctor that spends quality time with me and is genuinely interested in my problems and progress. He even called my insurance to see why they would not cover my medication and weeks later they began covering it.

I was referred to Dr Dieguez by my Amarillo cardiologist and was very pleased with our initial visit. He took time to explain each step I would go through and explained how COPD could be diagnose. I was very happy to learn from him that this was not a concern for me. He and his staff were very welcoming and calming. Each explained everything to me and to my family and took time to answer all our questions. I will recommend him to anyone need a pulmonologist.

Dr. Dieguez was referred to me by my Amarillo cardiologist a few years back, and from the very beginning Dr. Dieguez has fulfilled all of my pulmonary care needs in an above excellent manner. He is professional, but friendly and approachable. At every appointment he solicits in-depth discussions about my overall physical well being. He is a life-saver, and I don't know how I got along without him earlier.

I was sick for 3 months with a respiratory illness, he ran some tests but they all came back fine so. He called to explain the results even though I had already received the results from his nurse and understood them fine. I wanted to know what needed to happen next and he seemed to have an issue telling me that. Even raised his voice to me on the phone and told me I could find another pulmonologist when all I wanted to know was what to do next. Why's that so hard?
