I was recommended by one of the local ERs. I called and the receptionist seemed quite concerned, actually her customer service was on point. Unfortunately, when I arrived to the Baytown office for my appointment , my wait time was an excess of an hour. Keep in mind, I am in excruciating pain, and the dr finally called me in. He spent no more than 5 minutes with me, only to write a prescription and send me to have an MRI. When I called to get my results, still in major pain, I was not able to get anyone to answer the phone nor a return call after several messages. I finally tried to see if sending an email would work. Wow, someone responded only to tell me I had to go back to the MRI location and mail the CD, the results of the MRI, mind you, still in pain. This entire experience began on Oct 4 and today is Oct 27, with no updates. I must admit this is the worse any dr has ever treated me, but I’m sure he’ll want his pay a lot quicker than the best dr. A 0 rating is too much!

Mufaddal Gombera, MD consistently exhibits all the traits of an OUTSTANDING physician. He is passionate about helping others, appropriately empathetic, speaks respectfully in straightforward and understandable terms, listens intently, and above all, is knowledgeable and thorough in patient care. Although this is my first encounter as his patient, I have witnessed for several years his successes with my wife as his patient. I recommend Dr. Gombera as one of the absolute best orthopedic professionals in the Houston region!

Dr. Gombera is always pleasant and professional. I received his help in a complex hip arthroscopic surgery that has given me much needed relief. He has also did an outstanding job on treating my shoulder and he is a highly skilled surgeon with a great support staff.

Great visit from start to finish. 10 minutes of paperwork instead of 1 hour like some places. Good listener, did not wait long, sensible, cost effective solution.

I am always very comfortable talking to Dr. Gombera. He is attentive and patient with answering all my questions. I appreciate that he feels surgery is the last choice after using all other methods for treatment. I drive about 100 miles to see him because I trust him.

I came to Dr. Gombera after another specialist recommended a full hip replacement. Dr Gombera explained my imaging, the mechanics causing the problem and gave me a stepwise approach to save my hip with odds of success. After a 1 day surgery and 4 months of rehab my labrum is repaired, my hip is pain free, and I am back to triathlon training. Dr. Gombera is the complete package of skill and empathy. This is the doctor you can trust to do the right thing masterfully.

Hands down one of the best clinical/surgical experiences I have ever had in my life. Dr. Gombera listened to me and provided me with a full detail explanation of what was wrong with my hip and the treatment/surgery plan. From Dr. Gombera, to the pre-op team, to the OR staff, and lastly post-op staff, my experience was so professional, easy and comforting. I would highly recommend Dr. Gombera and Texas Orthopedic Hospital!

Dr. Attention, knowledge and interest in my condition; very good. He explained my options and treatment accurately and with the right expectations. Office a bit overwhelmed, despite my appointment being first thing in the morning. I was left in the waiting/consultation room for quite a while after the Dr visit, just to receive an informative pamphlet. They basically forgot about me.
