always feel cared for by staff & physicianSep 11,2019
Very good and very niceSep 03,2019
Dr. Caryannoupoulos is first rate. I am so glad that I got to see him at last, and I am glad that I will be able to see him in the future. But UTMB physicians are at the mercy of less than helpful clerks making--or not making--appointments for them. I called after I was discharged from the hospital on 4/1/19 to make an appointment with Dr. C to follow up on the 30-day cardiac monitor I had to wear. The person making appointments for him refused to make an appointment for me in a timely manner because I had not seen him before and my hospital discharge papers did not say I needed to see him It was 5 months before I could get an appointment. Meanwhile, I saw a cardiologist at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston x 3. The BCM cardiologist is also excellent, but I would have preferred to see someone at UTMB who had direct access to the results of my 30-day cardiac monitoring reports.Sep 03,2019
I can't say enough positive things about him. I have never met a doctor with more compassion for his patients. He listens, that is so rare in some doctors!!! Thank you so much!!!Jul 30,2019
