Dr Defriece is the best! I would not want to go anywhere else!

I started seeing Dr. DeFriece in 2011 or 2012. He has changed practices since then, but I follow him because he's such a great MD. I have several family members that also see him.

Dr. DeFriece is a very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive doctor. The office staff is friendly and wonderful as well. I see why he gets such great reviews, he definitely deserves them. I just found my family's doctor of choice!

I have been a patient of Dr. DeFriece for about 4 years. He is very personable, takes his time with you answering your questions and explaining medications and alternatives to taking medication with diet and exercise. I never feel rushed. He has a very kind demeanor and makes me feel at ease. He has moved from Katy now so I am following him to Cypress.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. DeFriece since he practiced in Fulshear and will follow him, any where he practices, in the Houston area. As everyone has mentioned in other reviews, he IS young, he IS very knowledgeable, and he takes his time with his patience, but above all else he explains things in terms that you will understand. He is a down home Doctor in the big city with his focus being on his Patients above all else!

Dr. DeFriece, being a younger doctor, is more in tune with today's medical information and practices. I was pleased with the time he spent with me at my first visit and his interest in conversing with me each visit afterwards. I found Dr. DeFriece to be personable and friendly at each encounter. I am glad that in changing his hospital affiliation that he is closer to my work and residence. I highly recommend Dr. DeFriece as a family doctor. The quality of care will please you.

For being such a young doctor, his quality is like the doctors of yesterday. He takes his time with every patient and listens to you. He cares more for the patient than I think the money. My wife and I have been seeing Dr.DeFriece for 6 or 7 years now followed him twice and will follow him again to Cypress that's how good a doctor he is.
in Katy, Tx |
I called after seeing all of these reviews about ease of scheduling. I called, nervous about a lump that has me scared, and was told it would be more than 2 months before they could get me into the doctor. I'm sure cancer would wait 2 months. Thanks Doc!
