What People Say About Dr. Julio Peguero, MD

I have loved every Physician I have met but he is by far one of the worst Doctors ever. It is clear he writes his own reviews in order to boost his rating on this website. He mocks his patients in front of Student Physicians who follow him. An embarrassment to an otherwise incredible Oncology treatment center.

He is all about money and numbers and even though he acts like he cares but his mind is on the outside life. He thinks highly of himself and his office is nothing short of Chaos. People come in, get on chemo (money maker) once office figure they are risk to bring the overall number down they stop communication and become non responsive. The worse decision I ever made was picking Peguero up as my oncologist. Be smart do not make the mistake I made. They make you lie to new patients as how good...

Doctor Paguero’s staff was informed this week that our family had filed a complaint with the Texas Medical Board for the Standard of Care and lack of my dad has received from Paguero and his staff. His staff Clarece asked if we wanted to change doctors? We told he we need their help getting my dad the necessary orders from Dr. Paguero for a hospital bed and other health care at home. Because of our complaint Dr. Paguero’s office has completely stopped communicated with us.

Dr. Peguero’s standard of care for our father is not acceptable after he administered chemo. He and his office failed to aid us in Home Healthcare to deal with the after affects of chemo therapy. Our Dad was is scheduled for a CT Scan on January 24, 2018 by Dr. Peguero. We were told by Brenda in his office that when we bring our Dad for the scan we would need to bring family members to lift our Dad on the bed to put him in the machine? This is UNACCEPTABLE and we need the scan.

Diagnosmy with terminal cancer only with imaging CD that I took when I went to the emergency hospital told me that I have one year to live. Have to be careful with that cause there are patients that may act crazy and finish with their life with a diagnostic like that good thing my son decide to get a second opinion and make an appointment in another hospital now I have a big bill for that reason.

My mother enrolled in his study and he was only concerned about his numbers, not her overall health. He bullied her into staying in his study, even though she had lost 15lbs. and was not recovering between treatments. He was manipulative and had no regard for her quality of life, only his numbers. The Memorial City office is mismanaged and a nightmare to deal with. The nurses were wonderful! The treatment nurses were kind and helpful.

I went to Dr.Peguero for my cancer. I got down to last chemo and I was told my Medicaide cancelled because the papers I sent to renew it they supposedly never received at the Medicaide office. They waited almost 6 weeks to tell me. So I had to wait for them to send me papers in the mail to start all over again. In the meantime I was told by the staff (Mary), I could no longer be treated and Mary told me to go to LBJ. So unless you have regular insurance I don't suggest you go here.
