Dr. Armstead is by far the most caring doctor I have ever met. She truly cares for her patients. I have been taking my mother to her for over two years now and she has been nothing but respectful and my mother's kidney failure has improved because of her care. I just can't say enough about this doctor. Anyone would be lucky to have her for their nephrologist.

This physician/nephrologist is a great asset to us nephrology patients, who reside in Cypress. I no longer have to journey to Katy, to visit a Nephrologist that I did not like, nor one who showed any special interest in my medical needs. Dr. Armstead arrives in Cypress, and my prayers are answered. She's very knowledgeable, kind, patient, listens to your needs and problems and treats you with dignity and professionalism. I very highly recommend Dr. Armstead.

Dr. Armstead is an amazing doctor and is a rare find. I've never had to wait long but I would wait to see this doctor. She listens and is truly interested in making a difference in my health. She is very easy to talk to and takes the time to understand all the factors. She works well with my other doctors and is knowledgeable. I feel blessed to be her patient.
