What People Say About Dr. Mufaddal Gombera, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
Dr Gombera is an excellent physician and surgeon who was well prepared for my visit with all previous diagnostics received and reviewed beforehand. He was able to answer my questions, and he really listened to what I had to say, which in my experience is rare for a doctor. Pre- and post-op instructions were accessible and clear. I feel like my hip surgery was almost miraculous. I've went from 10+ pain to 0 pain in a matter of days. I still have recovery time to go, but wow! Highly recommend.

Had a long lasting problem and with one visit to Dr. Gombera's office he was able to reassure me and with tests identify the problem. Now I have had a procedure and am recovering nicely. Appreciated the professionalism of the staff and the involvement of Dr. Gombera. Excellent team at the hospital.

Great Doctor very knowledgable and understanding. I could barely walk before I went to see him. He accessed my problem and treated it accordingly. The results were life changing. He has given me a couple extra years before I need to seek a surgical solution.

This was my 3rd knee (meniscus repair) surgery. The first performed by Dr. Gombera. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and focused. Always taking time to answer my questions and didn't seem hurried to move on to the next patient. The last two surgeries performed by highly rated surgeons took 3 months and 6 months respectively to return to light running. This time I am back within 8-weeks. I realize it is case by case, but i am extremely pleased.

I can’t thank Dr. Gombera and his staff enough with the experience we had at the Fondren Group. We had been dealing with a hip problem for 2-1/2 years and everyone at Beaumont Bone and Joint kept telling us nothing was wrong. After seeing Dr. Gombera, he knew right away what the problem was and we scheduled surgery. 3 months post op from a labrum tear, and she is at 100%. I highly recommended Dr. Gombera, and I highly recommend making the trip to Houston if you live in the Beaumont area.

Dr. Gombera's passion for his profession is evident. He is personable, professional, and an excellent doctor. He will uncover all options before opting for surgery, but once chosen will take the utmost care to completely restore your health issue. I highly recommend Dr. Gombera.

Dr. Gombera is truly one of the best. I suffered with a misdiagnosed hip issue for many years. Within 5 minutes of my first office visit he had a diagnosis that he later accurately confirmed and we scheduled the necessary surgery. He was thorough, competent, and took the time to fully explain the entire process. I am glad I had the surgery as it was Dr. Gombera that performed it. I am almost totally recovered. Give the circumstances again, I would not hesitate to trust him. He is truly great!

My sister recently had knee surgery with Dr. Gombera and he made her and our family feel as if she was his only patient. He is incredibly patient and listened intently to all of our concerns. We always felt well informed and continue to recommend him to our family and friends.

After having the injury, there was no time for "Doctor choice" decisions and Dr Gombera was available - so he was the choice. From the first meeting until the last, he was always pleasant, friendly, professional, interested, informative. The surgery itself seems to have been successful - and thus he deserves high marks for his skills as well. I wish him the best of luck. Texas Orthopedics Hospital & Staff were all excellent (as expected from the reviews).

While visiting us in Houston, my mother in-law was experiencing some joint pain and contacted Dr. Gombera for a consultation. She was so impressed and felt so confident and comfortable with his diagnosis and treatment plan that she now travels to Houston just to see him and follow his treatment plan. Thank you for excellent service and continued support. We appreciate it!

My care was excellent. Dr. G. really impressed me the first time i met him; he actually listened without interrupting while actually looking at ME not his I Pad or whatever. I felt completely confident in him and his ability to take care of me. he explained everything beautifully and answered all my questions, no matter how insignificant they may have been Great smile, great skill, great surgeon. I am an RN.

I had a very pleasant experience with Dr Gombera. My needs were met in a cordial, competent and careful way. My concerns were addressed and Dr Gombera arranged for treatment for my painful condition immediately that same day. I would recommend him enthusiastically.
