Best psychiatrist I have ever had. He cares about his patients and will go the extra mile. I will never go to any other psychiatrist. When I found him 7 years ago I decided he was the perfect doctor for my needs. In fact, he has saved my life.

Dr. Noel is awesome, caring, empathetic, sensitive to my needs, and I feel like he practically reads my mind sometimes! I truly feel heard, validated and respected for who I am as a person and not just based on my diagnosis. The front staff is efficient and professional and make you feel comfortable! So if you are looking for a good doctor, this is the place to go!

Dr. Noel is without a doubt one of the top psychiatrist in Houston and for good reason. He is extremely knowledgeable about any and all conditions in his field along with all medications that may be required to treat those conditions. He is an incredible listener and has an excellent bedside manner. He is so caring and compassionate to both my 12 year old daughter and me. If you need to speak to him he ALWAYS returns your call that evening. If you are a new patient it is worth the wait to get in

I trust his knowledge of medicines. My internist even defers to Dr. Noel with my medicines. If you are not an established patient, the wait time to get into see him for the first appointment is long. I usually schedule my appointments 3-4 months in advance, then I have no trouble getting the day and time I want!
