in Mcallen, TX |
In my opinion, Dr. Hurtado is one of the best gynecologist I have ever met. She was able to save two of my pregnancies. Even though other doctors would tell me that my pregnancies could not be saved Dr. Hurtado always new what I needed and took immediate action. Sometimes I had to wait a while in the waiting area BUT it was well worth it.

This office overbooks patients. I was 15 min. earlier for my appointment and there were already 3 patients ahead of me waiting to be seen. After I waited for over 1.75 hrs I left the office without seeing the doctor. The office is old, the furniture is worn out and there is a bad musty smell.
in Cypress, TX |
I thought she was a good doctor but as my pregnancy advanced she told me she had plans to go to Africa on the date I was having my first baby! She obviously Knew she was going to travel when we 1st met. I had my son with a stranger even though she was back in town. She came early next day and apologized for not being there. Of course I was done with her at that point. I would not recommend her nor her staff which I was not very nice. I was a number. Bad experience for a first time-

Dr. Hurtado is an excellent gynecologist. She treated my 15 yrs old daughter of an ovarian cyst, She conducted a laparoscopic cystectomy with excellent results, the aprox 5 cm cyst was extracted without complications (leaks, rupture, etc) and the recovery of my daughter was very fast. Dr. Hurtado was very kind and accessible during the treatment and recovery.

waiting and scheduling time is ridiculously long

She may be good for delivering babies but I feel not for Menopausal women at least not for me. Nice enough but waiting time and staff are another thing. I had two GREAT GYN doctors there for 25 years. Both retired. Their nurses were TOPS. I lost my best friends when these doctors retired and their nurses left too.. I literally cried. I was told that since I had a total hysterectomy and normal paps, my file is now archived and I do not need to be seen by Dr. Hurtado. The door was closed.

Dr. Hurtado is an excellent physician who takes her time with patients and is very knowledgable. The system she works in is the problem. Not enough support staff and seemingly always excessively over booked. Things fall through the cracks when this is the situation.
Houston, TX |
I highly recommend Dr. Hurtado. She saved my life and my baby girl. I wouldn't trust anyone else with such delicate job.
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Hurtado is very caring and explains things very well. Only problem is that waiting times are ridiculous and scheduling an appointment is pointless since it's usually rescheduled.
