The waited in his office an extremely long time. Someone commented that is normal. Only in the Valley. Look I work and have a busy schedule. Im a customer. In Houston you have an appointment at 9:00am guess what? You get seen at 9:00am. You have insurance. Pick up the phone and let them know the crappy service your getting. It's their money too. Medicare or Medicaid same thing. I told him my family doctor had done a so organ of my thyroid. Dr. Twahira said he did t need it. "Pretty Cocky!"

I have never been dismissed by any Dr. like I was by Dr. Twahirwa. Neither the Dr. nor his staff took down a medical history, much less write down the medications that I take. He walked into the room saying why was I there because there wasn't anything he could do for me. He refused to let me explain anything to him. I would never recommend him to anybody due to his behavior and arrogance.

I went to visit him because it was recommended by a friend, she did warn me about his attitude but the main reason I would not come back is because he made me feel like I was wasting his time because according to him my illness or symptoms were not related to my illness(I have been told otherwise) and were somewhat made up by me. I left feeling like my health issue was nothing and not important to him. Dr. Twahirwa may be very knowledgeable but his attitude and manners are bad!

Terrible, bad manners, couldn't answer none of my questions and he is so arrogant. I pay him to see me not to treat me like a number. In my time going with this doctor not once did he care about my health. I could had die or gotten worse..keep changing my medications and experimenting on my health. He made me feel like it was my fault I was like that, not knowing it wasn't. Honestly he is just there for the wrong reasons. This is my personal experience and honest opinion, not a patient anymore.
