Horrible Doctor
My 70 year old mother saw this doctor for results on an ear infection/biopsy. When she returned for the results the doctor was rude, my elderly mother felt intimidated and very uncomfortable. She says he was very dismissive and never explained what the results of the biopsy was. Shame on you for treating the elderly this way!

I took my son to see this doctor for a chronic ear infection. He was really good with him, really gentle, and you can tell he likes kids. I felt very safe having my son's medical treatment in his hands. Today so many doctors just prescribe tests and more tests and I felt like he really cared and listened to us and when we went back for follow-up checkups he remembered us and remembered that my son plays little league even though who knows how many patients he has. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!

I honestly thought he was a good doctor the 1st visit. I recently went for my follow up appointment and found him to be the most horrific doctor. He currently has a Texas Tech Student doing clinicals in his office. I personally don't mind having students around, they have to learn too! Well, after Dr. checked my ears, nose and throat and said everything looked fine, he continued to say "YOU KNOW YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL, BUT YOU WOULD ATTRACT MEN IF YOU WERE TO DROP ALL YOUR WEIGHT". Then he has his staff set an appointment with a Bariatric Surgeon. I politely said "WITH ALL DUE RESPECT SIR, MY INSURANCE AND I PAY YOU TO CHECK MY EARS, NOSE AND THROAT, NOT MY PHYSIQUE, AND IF YOU FEEL THE ONLY THING ATTRACTIVE ABOUT A WOMAN IS HER BODY YOU SIR ARE A VERY SHALLOW MAN". He then turned to his student and said "SEE I'M A GOOD GUY, I DON'T JUST CARE ABOUT WHAT MY PATIENTS COME TO ME FOR, I CARE ABOUT THEY'RE ALL AROUND HEALTH". Needless to say I will never return to see this insensitive man.

Horrible man! He is rude and doesn’t like when you ask questions! After being rude he says God bless you as if that excuses his rudeness. Wouldn’t recommend him for anybody.

Dr. Gomez is very impatient with children. He would prefer to charge you thouseand for an OR visit and put your child under anesthesia for a routine procedure that a skilled ENT can do in their office. Do not take your child to see him.

As soon as he walked in and saw my mother he said the same thing-it’s “old age” without asking a question or examining her. My mother stood up slowly because she has problems with her knees; his comment was “she is too heavy”. It was so insensitive. We are not going back! Sorry excuse for a doctor! He forgets one day he’ll be old too. I have several doctors in my family and they would never treat anybody in that manner.

This guy diagnosed my mom with “old age.” Instead of spending the time to try and find a diagnosis he instead provides an incentive response to the issues she is having and he goes about his day. He should of provided an alternative specialist to go see. He’s a horrible excuse for a physician.

This office double books and is ALWAYS LATE. Expect VERY LONG WAIT TIMES. My first appointment was at 9am, I didnt get seen until 10:45am. My surgery was scheduled at 9 am, I didnt see the doctor until 11am, then he had left for lunch before I woke up, he did speak with my husband for 2 minutes before he left. Then, I called and confirmed my appointment was at 9am, showed up 10 minutes early and still not seen at 930am. HE IS A NICE GUY, BUT NOT WORTH THE HASSEL.
