Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Condescending, rude, and all around unprofessional. Claims I was “imagining my symptoms”. Hung up on me when I had to call after hours for antibiotics. My experience was so traumatic that it made it difficult for me to go back to the GYN for years. Would not recommend.

I would never recommend this man to any woman seeking OBGYN services. Instead of simply telling me that a tubal would not be feasible in his office, and that I’d have to go to Mission, I was stuck there, having different forms of birth control “mansplained” to me for over an hour. This occurred even after I explained I am in my mid 30’s and have tried every form of birth control, and that was why I was pursuing a tubal. To boot, when I started getting agitated, he turned to his nurse, and talked about me, in front of me, as if I wasn’t even in the room. It would have been fine if he had just told me to go to Mission and sent me on my merry way. Adding in that I may want to consider gastric bypass, and then being so blatantly rude, was unnecessary and unprofessional. Now I am stuck with a $100 bill, and two hours of my life I can never get back. I will never go back to his practice. The saving grace was his nurse who was so nice and empathic to me after his blatant lack of respect.

I have been a patient of Dr. Cuellar for 26 years. He saw me through my pregnancy and birth of my daughter and now is helping me get through menopause! He is patient and kind and will answer any question I ask him. He takes the time to help me understand all of my options when making a decision about my health. He is professional and knowledgeable. Simply the best! His nurse, Melissa, is wonderful as well!

Overpriced! Save yourself and seek a better place. Difficult to contact the doctors on a emergency.

I could not ask for a more compassionate, empathetic, courteous or professional health care provider. His willingness to sit with me and answer every conceivable question I can come up with, reassures me of his desire to help me make well thought out decisions. If there were a sixth star, I would happily rate Dr. John Cuellar with it. Additionally, I couldn't ask for a better nurse to work along side Dr. Cuellar. Thank you, Melissa, for all you do!

Dr. Cuellar saved my uterus! It's true. I transferred care to his office when my ob/gyn at the time was pushing me to have a hysterectomy based on one fibroid that was 2 cm. One fibroid! I qualified for an endometrial ablation instead which not only removed the fibroid but shortened my cycles from 7 days to 3 days. Dr. Cuellar always takes as much time with his patients as needed. You will feel as if you are his only patient when he is with you. I can highly recommend his excellent care!
