Overall patient rating for UWH of Texas:

Pellets (Hormone Therapy)

On time, she listens & follows up.

Annual Well Woman Exam

Efficient front office and I love Dr. Petrowski!!

Office Visit / Follow-up

Dr Allen listened to my concerns and explained my options thoroughly. He prescribed medication in line with my plans and goals

Obstetrical Appointment (routine)

I love the office and staff- everyone is always kind and helpful. However, I arrived 15 minutes early for my 4pm appointment, and didn’t even see the doctor until 5pm. It was first prenatal appointment and her machine was super blurry so we couldn’t really see the baby anyway. I’m sure it will be better next time, but this appointment was a really exciting one that ended with more disappointment than I expected.

Pessary Insertion / Removal

Morgan had no problem addressing my situation with my pessary.
