I was nervous the entire time. Dr. Tamez and staff assured me everything was going to be okay. I trusted them and the procedure went very well. I followed his advice for post procedure and I breathe great now! I swear I can hear better too. The billing staff was knowledgeable and very communicative, as well. Thank you Dr. Tamez and staff.

Professional and very courteous staff! Two friendly young ladies greeted me the moment I stepped in the door ??. Followed by Andrew ( FNP-C) who was thorough in explaining my diagnosis as well as reviewing future recommendations for treatment. His friendly demeanor needs to also be noted ??. Thank you ALL for making my first impression ( 10-8-2020) of Tejas Ear, Nose, & Throat a GOOD one!!!

This isn't a direct review of Dr. Tamez but it does relate to his practice, Tejas ENT. I have only had my initial visit where I was scoped and provided meds and a f/u surgery consult was indicated. I haven't even met Dr. Tamez yet. My frustration is that is wasn't disclosed to me how difficult the scheduled appts and follow visits would be to get on the calendar. I guess it is great that his practice is so busy and that his services are in demand but, when you have an original appt and put on meds and have been told a f/u visit would occur in 4-6 weeks but, then you call and learn the EARLIEST available appt is 9 weeks out (this doesn't include the additional/possible 2+ months that would be needed to wait for a possible surgery), I find that very frustrating. Had that been known, I wouldn't have taken the first visit. Lesson learned and money lost....back to square one.

I couldn't have been more impressed with Dr. Tamez and his entire staff! I am so grateful for their kindness, attentiveness, and perseverance in finding out a solution! If you care about fixing the real problem and not just fixing the symptoms, I'd recommend Tejas ENT 10/10 times! :)

we came in for basic evaluations and were sent home with a complex array of sprays and antibiotics to try when there was no infection, snoring, apnea or any sign of breathing problems. I do not put my children on antibiotics unless there’s a good reason. Next The lady who checked us in and out was slow, rude and tried to cram a 5* review post down my throat before I had even finished checking out. His support staff are horrendous at their jobs. After noticing an omission on my child’s chart notes (1of the main reasons we came in!) I called and asked for a nurse. Had to leave a msg. Called back again and this time a rep transcribed my msg for a nurse to call me back. Now it’s been 2 days. I finally get a call back and the nurse didn’t even get a correct message and had no clue why I was calling. called to ask for records and images taken. The rep tells me that Elizabeth isn’t there but will call me back. NEVER CALLED. Be aware of patent care quality -it’s all volume here

Although my initial consultation was very informative and well conducted by a APN, I was very disappointed in the lack of response to a problem I developed. After starting 4 new meds, I developed vertigo. Called the office for assistance and never received a return phone call.

Dr. Tamez performed Sinus and Nose surgery with GREAT RESULTS. I'm 67 years old and I've had allergies since the age of 3. My allergies got worse with time, ended up in St David's ER. After 15 hrs, & 41/2 hrs of steroids, then dismissed me with a bunch of meds & a referral to Dr.Tamez. He ordered XRAYS & MRI and did a thorough exam. Outcome; After the 2nd week of the surgery I was able to breathe deeply and comfortably thorough my nose without any issues. I never breathed like that before!

I can’t express how much relief and knowledge I walked out with after my FIRST visit. I was so happy to know that my initial thought wasn’t the issue but something else and I was able to breathe fully for the first time in 38 years - my entire lifetime. The science behind and seeing firsthand through scope, I understood my issue and what can be done! I’m so grateful!
