Verified Patient Reviews
Staff was very friendly and helpful. They made me feel very comfortable!
She is so calming and I recommend her to anyone. I have gone to her the last few years.
She's a very nice and sweet Dr. Highly recommend her. Answered all my questions in a professional way. Made me feel very comfortable. The nurses were amazing as well.
It was painless. No waiting time.
I feel like my appointment was rushed and my concerns were not addressed I will not be back to this doctor.
The Doctor was really nice, and the appointment went fine, the doctor was cleared from the beganing about the hospital affliations and she may not be available at time of due. But the only things I want share, The doctor left us some Vitemans at here office, and after we checked all of them were expired. This could be very series issue, if we didnt checked the expired date.
Professional and caring doctor. Very short wait for exam. Bilingual doctor and staff are very efficient and helpful. I highly recommend.
Everyone in the office was friendly and professional. Dr. Pellicena was great! I am very happy with my decision on picking her to be my OBGYN.
I'm a long time patient of Dr. Pellicena and have complete confidence in her which is why I drive from Katy to see her.
Very attentive, polite and understanding.
I went it for my well woman. Thorough and efficient. Talked to me about some things I'll be facing as I age towards 40. I really liked her.
I love Dr. Pellicena! Her office staff is friendly, repectful and quick to get patients back to a room. Dr. Pellicena has an excellent bedside manner and is very thorough.
I am planning to go back next year.
I am very glad I chose Dr. Pellicena as my OB/GYN. She is very nice and considerate. She gives clear explanations and takes the time to answer questions. Her staff is also friendly and efficient.
Dr. Pellicena is an excellent doctor and she actually sits and listens to you and does not rush you! Her staff is very nice and helpful.
My daughter is 16 yrs. old with terrible cramps..we have been to 2 different adolescent doctors and they both treated my daughter like she was 12 yrs. old. Dr. Pellicena is the first doctor who actually listened to my daughter, spoke to hear in a clear, non-condescending manner and treated her like an adult. I can't tell you how much this meant not only to my daughter, but also to me. Thank you!!!
Nurse used post it notes to record answers to questions. Doctor told me I would have to make another appointment to discuss a concern I mentioned because this was my wellness visit. Her overall communication lacking professionalism. She in no way communicated an interest in anything I said.
the appointment went quick. Didn't feel personal. She didn't even use the light when she performed the exam. Didn't do urine test. I'm not sure what was supposed to be the standard of care so just telling my experience. Overall, it was average.
I recently switched insurance providers, so this was my first visit with Dr. Pellicena. My entire experience was great. Dr. Pellicena and her staff were extremely nice and informative.
Dr. Pelicena has been my doctor for 11years ... I've always appreciated her great bedside manners and care durring the birth of my children. I wouldn't ever think of seeing anyone elss
I really liked Dr. Pellicena! She was very friendly and knowledgeable. She made me feel completely at ease.
She is great and she gives you all the information that you need to know
The doctor was very pleasant. The office staff wasn't very friendly. But I was seen right away. Wish I was asked if I had any concerns but I wasn't asked. Over all I would recommend this doctor.
Fue muy buena, la dra. me parecio muy amable y me inspiro tranquilidad.
Quick and efficient!.. Staff was super friendly!!
She seemed busy and preoccupied with another matter while seeing me.
I absolutely loved it!
I do not recommend this doctor. It's very frustrating when you complete an online very detailed information form and then have to complete a paper copy of similar questions in the office, then answer the same questions with the med. asst. and then the doctor. What's the point in completing an online & paper questionnaire if no one is going to read them? I made an appointment for an annual visit and sterilization consultation, but I was rushed and while asking questions the doctor is heading for the door to walk out. Didn't make time to consult or answer questions, very rushed. The examination room was extremely unsanitary. Very dust and small, the foot rests are covered with a fabric covering that was stained and doesn't look like they're washed at all. It's very unsanitary! They have no hooks or hangers to hang your clothes after undressing. The bathroom was unsanitary as well, with two uncovered urine samples sitting out on the small table. I should have walked out when I had the initial feeling, or the second or third feeling. Listen to your gut and don't worry about hurting anyone's feelings.
The visit was good. This is my second visit to her, she addressed my concerns quickly, the visit didn't last long which I prefer since I typical use my lunch hour to see her. Her office staff is nice as well.
Ella entro y se presento. Fue muy amable pero cuando le dije quien era mi gynecologa y que estaba buscando una segunda opinion le di el nombre de la doctora y dijo "ella no es especialista en fertilidad" y yo no entendi si me estaba diciendo o preguntado. Asi que yo conteste no? y ella me dijo de una manera muy despota no!, te estoy dicendo que ella no es especialista en fertilidad y la verdad yo te recomiendo que sigas con ella pues ella es la que a llevado tu caso. Ni si quiera me checo, simplemente me dio el corton y eso a mi no me gusto ya que yo llevaba tiempo buscando una ginecologa y ella no fue lo que yo esperaba.
It was so quick and easy! And the doctor was the sweetest lady. I think I found my forever gyro in Houston!
Always efficient, quiet, personal, and informative.
Actually quite pleasant for a gyn appt. Staff is super friendly and professional!
I've been seeing Dr Pellicena for years. She is very thorough. She always takes time to answer questions and she is quick to recommend further testing to put my mind at ease if I come to her with any concerns. I would recommended her to friends looking for an OB/GYN.
Doctor doesn't want any kids or baby in the room. So I can't ultrasound because I have my baby girl 8months old with me. She ask me to rescheduled and I can't. I have to find other Doctor.
The professionalism was outstanding everyone was so helpful and very welcoming.
This was my first time trying out a new OBGYN in a new city. After reading the reviews on here, I set an appt. I am so glad I did! When I arrived, they had the times mixed up. I'm sure it was b/c I changed it on here, and they hadn't gotten the change in their office. Despite the confusion, the wait time was less than 15 minutes. Dr. Pellicena was GREAT! She is so personable, and very knowledgable. I will recommend her to all of my friends!
It was my first time to see for a well womens exam. I was nervous and not sure what to expect. The ladies in the front were well mannered. Dr. Pellicena was well mannered and did explain the procedures. I asked for birth control and which would be best. She told me she would prescribe some. I thought after the exam she would take time to explain different types of birth control pills available and directions on how to take them but she did not. I asked at the front if I could talk to the doctor before I left. The assistant went to ask if I could ask her a question but I over heard a hesitance. As I approached her office to ask my questions she was not rude but didn't seem eager to answer my questions. I asked one question but did not ask the many other questions I had because I did not feel she wanted to be bothered. If you its a routine check for you and don't have any question just for exam she is well mannered and good but if your wanting a more in-depth visit she lacks in this area. I would go again for an in and out but I would not go for a pregnancy.
Was really impressed with my first visit. The entire office staff was friendly and professional. Very organized office. Dr. Pellicena was very nice and easy to talk with. Puts you at ease instantly.
I like her. I think I will start my prenatal care with her.
Waited a bit but she is worth it!
Office wasn't reopened from lunch at 1:30, had to wait in hallway about five minutes along with a very pregnant woman. No apology, no greeting from office staff. Pellicena was direct and efficient but her nurse (?) clearly hadn't looked at the forms I'd submitted, didn't introduce herself. Checkout was just rude. No thank you, no follow up, no instructions on how to schedule my mammogram, no goodbye. It's a small office. I'd suggest Pellicena retrain staff or rehire.
Great in every aspect.
Very friendly, professional and made me feel very comfortable. Took about 15 minutes to be seen, but the Pap took seconds once the doctor got in there. Definitely the fastest assessment I have ever had.
Dr. Pellicena is a very caring, compassionate doctor. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Pellicena is a knowledgeable doctor who truly cares about her patient. As a physician myself, it is easy for me to identify a doctor who genuinely cares versus a doctor who is simply "going through the motions." Dr. Pellicena is genuine, honest, and empathetic in her approach to her patient. I highly recommend her and trust her explicitly in all areas of women's health.
I love her and her practice! I recommend her 100%!
Very thorough and takes time with patients to answer all questions.
Excellent customer service from staff. Doctor was understanding and provide me with various alterbative for my medical condition.
this was my first visit with Dr. Pellicena. She was fantastic ! Let me know everything she was doing and explaining why she was doing it. She does ultra sounds in her office and tells you what she is seeing and any and all concerns, then asks if you have any questions or concerns. By the time I left there, I felt like I have been seeing her for years. She has a wonderful bed side manner !
I been going to Dr.Pellicena for about 5 years
I had been to Dr. Pellicena before, but she was very rude this time around. I drove from LA to see her because I liked her that much. I wanted her to continue to be my doctor. Instead she tells me she will only give me three months of birth control and that I need to find a doctor in my new city. OBVIOUSLY if it was an issue coming to she her, I would have found a doctor in my new city, but that didn't matter to her. She also had the audacity to agree that I had gained weight and that I should try the weight loss drinks she sells there. Ladies, basically she's good because of her tiny hands and paps are quick. Other then that, she's turned quite sour since I last saw her a year ago.
I didn't have to wait long at all. Dr. Pellicena is always pleasant and empathetic to my concerns.
She made me feel very comfortable. I will continue to use her.
Dr. Pellicena is excellent. She is patient and takes the time to really listen. It was not a rushed appointment. I am happy to have her as my doctor.
I always get the best care and she always gives me the best advice. I had recommended my sister to her and my sister had a high risk pregnancy I'm fortunate to say my nephew is here and healthy.
Excellent Doctor highly recommend her to anyone!
Dr Pellicena is an excellent doctor, been seeing her for years! I highly recommend her!
She's a very nice doctor
My visit was great as always. ????
Es muy agradable y profecional.
I loved it! Super clean and friendly environment. I hadn't been to the doctor in so long and was afraid of it being awkward and uncomfortable but it went really well.
Very informative easy to talk to. I really like her.
I just had one visit with Dr. Pellicena, but I had a really good experience. She is really nice and patient, and answered all my questions without rushing me. I love that she speaks perfect Spanish!
A great appointment overall. Staff there is great!
Me sentí muy tranquila respecto a su opinión profesional sobre mi problema ginecológico, y suplió todas mis inquietudes de manera tranquila y profesional. Es bueno contar con la calidez de la persona.
She was very friendly made me extremely comfortable. Office was nice staff was personable. Will definitely be returning
My visit with Dr. Pellicena is always pleasant, comfortable and very informative.
The doctor is a nice person, and I lake it. she is so friendly
I am always very pleased with Dr. Pellicane and her staff. I wish the visit was longer, because she always has great advise and experience. I drive 30 mins to see Dr. PELLICANE.
She seems like a very busy doctor. she was polite and friendly, but I didn't feel like I was a priority and the visit was so quick I felt that she didn't fully understand what my issues were or ask or answer questions. I also didn't like that you pre fill out all these question and she didn't even read them. I thought that was not professional. If I took my time to reveal my history than you should take your time to review my information. I don't know if I will be back.
I arrived about an hour early for my appointment and was seen and out of the office before my true appointment time. Everyone was very friendly.
Son muy amables todos
We arrived early but were seen right away and the Doctor was with us in a matter of minutes, she was very professional and helpful, pricing is not bad, the staff was very friendly as well, place was clean and upkept.
The doctor is very friendly and professional. She made me comfortable during my exam and explained everything. I have been to see her 3 times and never had to wait more than a few minutes in the waiting room or exam room. The office is clean and the office staff are friendly and efficient. I have recommended Dr. Pellicena to family and friends.
I liked Dr. Pellicena very much-- I felt I could ask her all the relevant questions without embarrassment, which is important for an OB-GYN.
It wasnt the doctor it was the staff or receptionist. They called me and confirmed a price a week ago and before they even asked for my information they collected my payment. Only to find out ten minutes later the payment went up. This was highly unacceptable and wrong! The staff needs to get their acts together!
Not as thorough as I would have liked. Did not ask me one question. Lectured me about not using bc but didn't know that I have been with my one partner in a long term relationship.
I understand that there is a war between insurances and doctors, but refuse to be a victim who is paying to both side of the barricades. Insurances pretend they are paying and doctors pretend they are working.. I came in, walked in, and walked out in 3 minutes. I was repeatedly told that I am in for Woman's Well Exam only, and any other concerns can't be discussed at that appointment... This is my first visit, yet no one made a slightest attempt to make me or my business welcomed. I felt like I visited a factory on the running belt.. I work and my time is valuable, to ask for prescription, I have to make a separate appointment. Not acceptable for me, sorry.
The doctor was very cheerful told me things to improve my health.
She's a great doctor: very kind and quick.
She is a really nice and professional person... answer my questions and made me feel confident that she'll be with me thought the journey I'm about to start... really nice and friendly staff as well.
Always great and informative.
I highly recommend Dr. Pellicena. She answered all of my questions, takes time to listen and is very friendly. Staff was also friendly and professional.
Dr. Pellicena is a great ob/gyn who I have been seeing for the past 13 years. She is caring, knowledgeable, and thorough.
Dr. Pellicena is very professional and a very personable physician. She makes me feel very comfortable. I feel she really cares about me as a person.
Dr. Pellicena is great with explaining testing, as well as reasoning, which makes me as the patient more comfortable.
Excellent!!!!!!!!; I don't have any complaint.-
Dr Pellicena is very friendly and teally shows how much she cares for her patients. Her staff is very efficient and personable as well. I highly recommend Dr Pellicena and her staff!
I've seen Dr Pellicena for about two years. Her office is a no frills get in and out type deal, but she is friendly enough and I haven't has any negative encounters.
They didn't ask for a urine specimen, and as a healthcare provider myself this isn't standard procedure in an ob/gyn office
Me hubiera gustado una atencion mejor estoy tan acostumbrada a la atención con mi ginecólogo en México el en la consulta te hace ultrasonido para revisar todo por dentro aunque no estes embarazada. Hoy solo pork tenia prisa no viaje a Mexico pero definitivamente la proxima vez mejor viajo voy con ni ginecologo en Mexico
Dr. Pellicena was prompt, professional, and thorough. She took extra time to speak with me in detail regarding risks and benefits of different birth control options and helped me decide the best option for me. I highly recommend her.
She seems to always be rushing, hardly takes any time to explain anything, I'm changing Dr for my next year exam.
It was excellent and Dr answered all my questions.
I liked this doctor a lot. She was very kind, caring and answered all your questions. I would love to continue going to her but my company switched insurance and it happen to be one she does not except. :(
She is a great MD. I felt very comfortable with her. Thank you do much.
I will be back. :)
She made me feel very comfortable, and she gave me lots of info and explained things the whole way through my pregnancy check up. Very nice and friendly doctor. So glad I made the switch to her!
Just had my first visit. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Pellicena is also very friendly & professional.
She is my regular OB-GYN. I love her and her staff, never a wait, always professional, exceptional doctor! She recently made my pregnancy concerns all at eased, so glad I found her
Dr. Pellicena was fantastic! I was very nervous about the visit, and she was so reassuring! Her professionalism and expertise put all my fears to rest. Her office staff and nurses were very friendly, courteous, and efficient. I would definitely recommend Dr. Pellicena.
My doctors visit went fantastic. Aside from the fact that they forgot about me in the waiting area for 30 minutes everything else flowed smoothly. I really loved this OB-GYN!! She's a WOMAN, she's bilingual and she's incredibly friendly. She made me feel so comfortable, explained everything clearly, suggested a great birth control for me, gave me a free months sample of it, and a savings card for future prescriptions. Excellent experience overall!
Nice doctor and very cheerful.
I enjoy my visit and am excited for next visit!
Dr. Pellicena was extremely nice. The entire office staff was very professional and attentive. I arrived almost a hour before my appointment time, but was still seen right away. I will definitely recommend Dr. Pellicena.
Very thorough and quick.
I have been going to Dr. Pellicena for years and she delivered my baby. She is always kind and takes time to talk to each patient.
She's wonderful. Answers all my questions & provides information & reference materials.
Dr Pellicena was very friendly and professional. She discussed my issues frankly and made me comfortable before the exam. The office staff were friendly and efficient. It was easy to fill out the history forms before the appointment online. I can get my test results online also as soon as they are ready. All around better experience than my last doctor where I routinely had long waits in paper gowns in cold exam rooms.
Satisfied, professional, and no waiting time!!!
It was good, fast, informative, easy
Very nice, welcoming & professional.
Very pleasant and addressed questions and concerns.
She is definately approachable and professional. She is very thourough and consise. She inquired about my history and ensured me that our communication will be ongoing. Thanks for being a people person Dr. Pellicena. Have a great new year! ...and i commended ZOCDOC. :-)
Attentive staff. Professional office. Dr. Pellicena was very caring.
My prior doctor was in the med center and I always waited an average of an hour or over to be seen. Dr. Pellicena was refreshingly friendly and made you feel very comfortable. As a new patient, I was surprised on how fast I was seen and in and out of the office in no time. I'm new to the area and am happy to keep her as my doctor for the years ahead.
Very prompt, nice, and professional.
Sweet efficient staff. And Dr. Pellicena was very sweet, gentle and genuinely cared.
Wonderful! Dr. Pellicena is an excellent doctor that is quite thorough and professional.
Well woman exam
She speaks spanish.
Very friendly and through!
Nice doctor. Professional but caring. Very friendly staff as well!!!
She had to go for an emergency C-section during my initial appointment, but Dr. Pellicena made sure to get me in as soon as she could the same day. Incredibly kind and easy to talk to! I am definitely glad I chose this office for my visit.
She is very professional, cares for her patients. I would highly recommend her
She cancelled on me twice. I took time off work for my appointments and she thinks it's simple to just reschedule with her limited hours. Nothing before 10 am or after 2:30 pm. If you work a regular M-F job, don't bother booking with her.
Awesome. Staff and Dr always kind, friendly and professional.
Initial visit went fine. I liked that Dr Pellicena wanted to receive the results of a test before she treated the condition I came in with. I reserve judgement of this doctor's ability until then.
I was very pleased with her level of knowledge and her ability to help me put aside my worries
Great! Love her attitude and no judgement! IN AN OUT!
She is an excellent OB-GYN. Cares about her patients.
She was incredibly nice.
Very friendly! I will definitely go back.
I was very satisfied with Dr. Pellicena's demeanor; she was very patient, answering all of my questions. She was thorough and very helpful. I am keeping her as my OB/GYN as long as I can. She's a true professional.
Ive Staye WiTh Dr Pellicen Since My Last Child Was Born, 8Yrs.Now. She Is.A.true Professional and Friendly. Same Goe For Her staff
She is very personable & was great, listening and answering any questions I had.
Dr Pellicena had a great bedside manner. Some of the office staff I think needed to be more friendly.
Alexandra Pellicena was very nice! She's super sweet and explains everything really well!
I LIKED THE DOCTOR, JUST NOT THE OFFICE STAFF (ONE EMPLOYEE WAS VERY RUDE TO ME)
I love her! Have seen Dr. P for many years and she delivered my 3 1/2 yr old son. She's very sweet and truely cares about her patients.
Great Doctor and staff.
The doctor has a very calm, soothing bedside manner and is practiced as an ob-gyn. She is thorough and made sure nothing was missed or overlooked (like the mammogram I'd never had before!). She was such a good doctor I intend to send my daughter and Mother for their annual exams. Thank you Dr. Pellicena!!!
Unpleasant and aggravating!
My visit was a professional and efficient pleasant experience.
The staff was efficient, courteous and I saw the doctor right away. Dr. Pellicena was friendly and swift in her procedures but took the time to discuss my needs. Very pleased for my first visit to this practice.
Dr. Pellicena is an excellent doctor. Very knowledgeable, thorough and patient. Highly recommended!
It was terrible! Went in with a problem and I'm still having the same problem.
Dr. Pellicena was excellent. Super caring and understanding. Would recommend it to anyone!
Excellent beside manners and very caring. Great listener!
I love her
Very professional and friendly.
I think she is a good OBGYN however she needs to ask her patients if they have questions before, during and after any examinations. I wanted to add another test but was too late in asking because she rushed through the exam. While I understand that most people are concerned with the amount of time they spend in a doc's office, I need to feel like the doc is really concerned about me.
she was FANTASTIC!
IT WAS GREAT,,,,,? I LOVE IT? SHE WAS NICE & SWEET?
She was friendly, warm, and knowledgeable.
Very thorough. Wonderful bedside manner. I have been seeing Dr Pellicena for over 10 years and won't go anywhere else!
She was very informative and helpful at every visit. Her staff showed great hospitality and very professional. She enjoys her profession and her patients!
I love how she listens and explaines everything in details.
It was great might make permanent
