Jul 2, 2022
Used online scheduling only to find via a phone call physician not available at time chosen. Online scheduling templates should be kept updated. Resulted in having to schedule into the next month.
Jun 28, 2022
Trying to schedule appt,,,,, finally got someone to answer that I could barely understand. I asked them if they were in Texas, and the person said "WHY" I said because I'm having a hard time understanding.
Jun 24, 2022
I was a new patient and the scheduling of appointment is bad. Went mid week of May, was seen June 20Could have been sooner.

Better directions to get to the office, I ended up walking all over the building trying to find the clinic
Mar 9, 2022
Extremely helpful!
Mar 9, 2022
I usually bring a book to read when I visit any Dr and I didn't read any of my book this visit!
Mar 9, 2022
Very friendly and efficient.
Feb 28, 2022
Seemed distracted.
Feb 28, 2022
When I arrived for my appointment, there were several people filling the waiting room and many people waiting in the long row of chairs in the hallway.
Feb 28, 2022
Required I wear a mask, even after I told her my oncologist advised me NOT to wear a mask to keep my oxygen high.
Feb 22, 2022
Hardly any wait
Feb 22, 2022
Very good
Feb 20, 2022
I felt the Doctor did care about me and that I was not the treatment was not simply rote, mechanical treatment
Feb 20, 2022
Once I found the correct tower and the suite I experienced no delays. Would have appreciated having directions
Feb 19, 2022
Professional and listened to my concerns

Feb 18, 2022
Everyone wearing masks
Feb 16, 2022
I have known Dr. Poulos for decades. He's wonderful.
Feb 15, 2022
It is very difficult and exhausting to have someone from the clinic answer the phone. 90% of the time an answering service takes a message and it may take up to 2 days to receive a call back.
Feb 15, 2022
Dr Poulos is outstanding
Feb 15, 2022
I think this surgeon and staff are the best I have encountered.
Feb 15, 2022
Dr. Poulos was very good in all regards on my first visit. My second visit with him was brief and I did not get advise on dealing with the nighttime pain, and I failed to ask a particular question, i.e., at no time did anyone say, "Do you have any questions?"
Feb 15, 2022
There was a Monday morning line-up and it seemed each patient had some sort of Issue in getting registered. As for me, it was my clumsiness with broken arm and the fact that I hadn't finished the process on the app. Receptionist was very patient. We weren't informed of any delays. The waiting time seemed good considering the number of patients waiting.
Feb 15, 2022
Struggled a bit with the app. Receptionist helped me complete process.I am retired, so daytime office hours work for me.
Feb 13, 2022
It was all good.

Dr. Poulos is probably the best in this area of medicine (arthopedic Issues with the hands and fingers) in the entire RGV.
Feb 11, 2022
Excellent nurses. I actually had 2 separate nurses come for me on the waiting room. Wait time very minimal.
Feb 11, 2022

I would recommend this Dr. But would not recommend the hospital he is affiliated with.
Jan 20, 2022

Dec 8, 2021
Unfortunately, Dr Poulos was called away for an emergency. Since my hand was hurting, I decided to wait. I was brought water and treated very kindly which made the long wait easier.
