Dr. Wier is a great psychiatrist, but I will be leaving his care due to his receptionist. She has been not just short but flat out rude and insensitive, called me names, and has gone so far as to hang up on me without ever asking why I was calling. I have never met someone that treated people with such disregard in my entire life. She has no business being in the health care industry, especially one that deals with people that are already unstable. It seems as if her sole goal is make people cry or snap. She will not connect you to the doctor, and belittles you when you show up for an appointment. I know I am not the only one that has had to deal with this. I urge all of you to voice your concerns to Dr. Wier. His other receptionist is great, I have no idea why he hired this additional woman, but she needs to go before all his patients do. It is a shame to have to lose a doctor you really admire and trust because dealing with this woman is unbearable.As for Dr. Wier, he is a great psychiatrist. He really works with you to find a treatment that works for you. If you have already found medication that works for you and are just switching doctors, he listens, reads your files, and doesn't make you restart the whole process (which in changing health insurance companies I ran into that problem a lot with doctors wanting to start the diagnose process all over rather than listening to what has and has not helped you in the past). His appointments are a little shorter than some as he seems to deal more with people that have seen a psychiatrist for years and are already set with a treatment plan or are also in other forms of therapy, BUT if you do need additional time just to talk you can schedule it and he will gladly listen to you and help. He is very caring, compassionate, and understanding. I know some people at times need to just be able to talk for a hour or more, and if you need that additional therapy he will give good recommendations for doctors and centers that specialize in your condition. As for someone who knows medication, listens to you, and works with you, Dr. Wier can't be beat.

Mididoddi, Ravi, MD
I'm writing this review from the perspective of both my mother - a patient of Dr. Mididoddi - and myself - as a family member of one of Dr. Mididoddi's patients. My mum is a kidney transplant patient who experienced some difficulties, including hospitalization, in the first few years after her transplant. During one of these hospitalizations, my mum had the good luck of being seen by Dr. Mididoddi. He took the time to familiarize himself with her history and the facts and circumstances that caused her hospitalization. Upon meeting with her at the hospital he was compassionate, competent, and knowledgeable. Dr. Mididoddi continues to be my mum's favorite doctor. He is concerned about my mother's overall well-being and not just the health of her kidney. Dr. Mididoddi has done a wonderful job of referring my mum to additional doctors, when necessary, and strives for a cohesive and balanced approach to her healthcare.

Young, Ryan Carter, MD
I trust Austin Retina Associates with my eye care. Fifteen years ago I experienced a critical retina separation in one eye. My vision was eclipsed as the retina was separating. Dr. Lyle Koen of Austin Retina Associates met me in his office on a Labor Day holiday weekend within 15 minutes of the time I called his office to report my symptoms. He acted very quickly to save me from blindness in one eye, and now I have 20-20 vision with my normal eye glasses in both eyes. Now, I see Dr. Ryan Young at Austin Retina Associates. At the time of my last two annual check ups Dr. Young took plenty of time to listen to my questions, answer them and to examine my retinas and to evaluate the health of my eyes. Dr. Young and all the staff are professional and helpful. I am grateful to excellent doctors and staff like those at Austin Retina Associates for my healthy eyes.

Do not go to the YMCA in Austin. There are too many better options Austin has to work out in a hassle free environment. Staff at town lake and north locations would tell me I couldn't use the equipment or I needed to purchase special certification to participate in group exercise. Never go there alone. People exaggerate and make things up about you. Its like their picking a fight. Always keep your bags within sight. Someone stole a resistance band out of my bag before a class started at townlake. In the winter someone stole my pants at east. The website and app are not always correct. Sometimes the instructors don't show up. Staff followed me to Walmart and around Austin on several occasions. Granted there are some good people there but there's no guarantee you can walk into a harassment free environment and just workout.

Downtown Doctor
There's no other place like this in Austin. I moved here from Dallas, where there's three great, well-staffed LGBT practices near Oak Lawn. My first physician in West Austin flipped out when I expressed an interest in PrEP and treated me very unprofessionally afterward. The entire practice at Downtown Doctor is LGBT-friendly and professional: the staff, the nurses and the doctor herself. They're also pretty likable, efficient, diverse in every sense and not judgy. Dr. Freeman remembered small details from my first visit almost five months ago. She also gave me options on treating my blood pressure. It's also staffed on Saturday, like my favorite LGBT clinic in Dallas. My sincerest advice to readers: Take these reviews with a grain of salt. My not-so-LGBT-friendly first doctor has a 4.5 rating.

Prisacaru, Genoveva N, MD
I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Prisacaru at Seven Hills Women's Health. She is intelligent and so well read and the best communicators of medical information that I have ever seen, with a natural talent for breaking down any difficult topics.Each interaction with her during my pregnancy was an opportunity to learn and take away a treasure chest of unique insights. Behind her brilliant mind is a very caring individual. Many people are intimidated by her because she is so incredibly smart. I am grateful and fortunate to have been her patient. Let aside, she saved my life twice. Once in ICU, when I was admitted with severe pelvic sepsis, and second time when she operated on me for my fourth cesarian section. I am one of her living legacies.

Hill Country Allergy and Asthma
My son has been suffering thru allergies for over a year and we just dealt with the sneezing and coughing. When we decided to take that step toward seeing a doctor, Dr. Mery was recommended. As a parent, I am so satisfied we took that step. Dr. Mery not only took the time to answer my concerns but also explained our options to my son's better health. I am submitting this review when I usually do not bother, however I am compelled to share due to my son's much improved health with the allergy shot therapy. Being on the allergy therapy is a commitment, but the gains we have seen are huge.

Cordoba J Bernard MD
Dr. J. Bernard Cordoba is an outstanding, gifted psychiatrist. He has offered me the most healing, help, and hope since my diagnosis of bipolar disorder in 2006. Dr. Cordoba is a very good listener and at the beginning of each appointment takes the time to talk with me and ask me questions before making recommendations about medication and self-care. Dr. Cordoba is extremely well-versed in prescribing the most effective yet least intrusive medical cocktail. We make all decisions together regarding my treatment. I absolutely trust Dr. Cordoba and am truly thankful for him.

Victory Medical Center
These ladies are really the best! They are both consistently pleasant, polite, professional, efficient, competent, friendly, and kind. I have been so impressed with the way they have handled my appointments amid my crazy schedule, always finding a way to make things work in a way that works for me. I have always felt that they go above and beyond or me at every turn. Check in and scheduling are always smooth and quick. I really appreciate them! They make me feel like this is "my" place and they are always here to help me. Thank you!

Martinez George
My wife and I have been seeing Dr Martinez for over 20yrs. He has been a great Dr and we're both very happy with him. I get a physical every year at work and as I got older my cholesterol went up. I had two doctors recommend that I get on cholesterol medication as a way to fix the problem. Dr Martinez talked to me about changing my diet first which I did and I was able to lower it and haven't had to take any medication. I'm very thankful for his guidance and happy that I don't take any cholesterol medication.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
