This woman prescribed a migrane medicine to me that is banned for heart diseases. I had an infarction 4 years ago and was rushed to the hospital with a new one!. My wife and I submitted a complaint to the medical board of Texas and patient liason!

Dr. Pleitez is not ontime, doesn't believe in follow up and honestly, never gave an answer to my questions. Thumbs down!
in Tomball, TX |
The Dr. & Staff was very direct about having the muscle biopsy. The told me it would be very painful & it was! Thank God it is over! I do appreciate direct information that I was given about prep & the biopsy itself. They were both very helpful during the biopsy & kept talking to me the entire time. They also gave me very good info about what to expect after the biopsy. I just have had what is left of my sutures out with my local Dr. I think Dr. Pleitez & her staff were kind & very helpful.

Difficult to get along with as your physician.
in Houston, TX |
Short tempered. She is hesitant to share your test results. Wondering if Methodist is aware of her behavior!! Its all about the money :))
Not friendly amd does not respect patient's time. Does not explain the condition as well.
in Tyler, TX |
Regretfully she smirked when I asked about the prognosis of my condition and hushed me when I repeat myself. I am not sure how she is allowed to see patients!
in Houston Texas |
Excellent bedside manner, very clear when going over health problems, explaining tests needed and test results as well as treatment options. Very personable doctor and takes her time with you for questions and explanations. I would recommend her immediately to anyone needing a good doctor and neurologist.
in Friendswood, TX |
Very difficult to get an appointment for procedures when the Dr. tells you she wants you to come in. Office staff does not call to schedule the procedures when the Doctor tells you they will call you.
