Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Splenser took the time to ask about all my health issues, not just endocrine related issues. He emphasized taking care of all of me...not just thyroid problems.
He was thorough in asking questions, as well as letting me know about side effects of potential medicine to take.
Impressive first visit. My family member is sometimes long-winded so Dr. S was very good at listening and cutting the conversations short.
Really took time to get to know me as a patient. He was very interested in my case. I would recommend to others looking for a caring physician.
Positive visit. Looking forward to working with Dr. Splenser to better my health.
I did not have to wait to be seen. I strongly recommend Dr Splenser!
Dr Andres Splenser along with his staff were very professional and nice
I was a new patient and am SO glad I found Dr Splenser. I don't think I've ever had a doctor listen so well, or felt like they took me and my issues more seriously than Dr Splenser did. He was kind, attentive and I really felt like I was getting fantastic care and on a path toward feeling much better. Office staff as well as the phlebotomist were friendly and prompt. Again, I'm just so pleased I found this office.
We had a wonderful experience with Dr. Splenser! He truly doctors by looking at the whole picture not just numbers on a lab result. He has a great disposition and treats his patients with respect. We look forward to working with Dr. Splenser in the future.
It was wonderful to meet someone so friendly and actually interacting with you in a friendly and nice manner. I had the pleasure of him explaining me well and made sure to ask me from every angle. I'm glad I went to him and he checked for things I didn't know and I found out what was really wrong with me and not what others had been treating me for. I'm so glad.
Dr Splencer has a wonderful energy about him and is very personable. He asked lots of questions but never jumped to conclusion and was very thorough in is examination. I also liked that he is budget conscious with his recommendations in medication and listened to my observations and provided his own feedback in response with clear explanations for everything. His staff was pleasant and courteous. Although I did have a minor hiccup with my lab form missing some coding and because of it had to reschedule to do it another day.
Excellent Dr. He was very thorough and informative.
Very pleased. Definitely felt comfortable with him. Will be going back for on going care.
Quality care -- this is what it looks like. Great doctor and staff.
I thought he was fantastic. I didn't have much luck with other Endocrinologists listening to me about my symptoms. He took time with me and listened. I finally have a good game plan and am feeling better.
Dr. Splenser is very thorough. He listens and provides options for course of treatment. He is very understanding and focuses on all symptoms presented instead of just one or two. Highly recommended!!
Es en español!!!!!
Buen doctor . Sabe lo que hace y tiene un trato encantador
My first visit was amazing. He welcomed me with open arms and a very kind manner. Very caring and understanding. Listened to everything I had to say. Helped in every aspect during my visit. He went out of his way to make sure my prescriptions were sent and that I had a copy of each to take with me, just in case. So glad I found Dr. Splenser.
Dr Splenser answered all of my questions and was very thorough. I was seen very promptly and the doctor spent enough time with me so that I didn't feel rushed or that I was taking up too much time with my concerns. I've already recommended that my husband see Dr Splenser. And would recommend him to my friends as well.
He is extremely friendly, easy to talk with, very understanding, very patient, shows lots of care and concern for me and family. He is handsome, jovial and spends quality time with his patients. He is concerned about patients rights and privacy.He makes accurate diagnosis and examined me fully.
They moved to a new location and it is very nice. Dr. Splenser is always very nice and reassuring. I've always had a good experience with him.
i really enjoy my visit with the doctor today. A few things, they want new pts in their office 45 mins before the appointment or 30 mins if you have your paperwork filed out early. You can find the form on their website. When finding the place, you would think that memorial office building 3 would be in the same area as all the office, but no, it actually on beechnut, so no need to get into the southwest memorial haze. i waited about 15mins to see the doc. Dr. Splenser is really personable. While i was waiting i can hear him talking in spanish to someone outside, and he sounded very friendly. And when i met him he was.. He likes a through background on your health, as all specialist should do. After doing what he needs to do, he comes with him a plan. We will see what happens as time goes. Overall, i enjoyed my visit.
This was my first visit with Dr. Splenser and it will not be my last. My favorite part of my appointment was when he said he like to get to know his patience before he started my evaluation. But the best part was the bedside mannor and the overall service.
Dr. Andres Splenser has a great bedside manner & easy to talk to. He decreased my diabetes medications from 5 to 3. Hoping to get it down to 2. He is kind and seems to read people well. I hope to get motivated to keep my diabetes in control. The staff are professional, competent & efficient. A++++
Loved the super friendly staff anf Dr. splenser is personable and amazing!!!
Dr Splenser genuinely cared to help me find the root of my problems even when we ruled out every cause within his scope of care. He was extremely knowledgeable, took the time to explain in detail the details of what can cause symptoms I had, and recommended several next steps as options to pursue to resolve my issues.
Dr. Splenser himself is a very cheerful doctor with good "bedside manners". I felt very comfortable with him and our dialogue. Unfortunately, we got started one hour after our scheduled appointment (to be fair, I did arrive 12 minutes late mostly due to difficulty in finding parking and the building). So overall I did not enjoy the experience. What would take this up a few stars is two things: - NO paperwork, and I mean zero (electronic is okay if it can be done in advance) - Provide specific directions on how to find the building. It is close to a HUGE medical complex and it is very difficult to locate exactly how to get to the building and associated parking just by punching in the address.
He was very nice knowledgeable and welcoming. The receptionist/medical assistant is very nice.
Dr Splenser is very knowledgable with an awesome manner. He listened to what it was I had to say and seemingly understood every symptom and put me at ease, which was so refreshing after a year of being undiagnosed, misunderstood and on the defense- just fighting to be heard, let alone treated. Dr Splenser is heaven sent right along with my neurologist Dr. Evans, who's also heaven sent. The nurse assistant here was very helpful and nice as well, she has a very calm manner. Highly recommended.
Dr Splenser is extremely articulate, informative and puts it in layman’s terms; his bedside manner is excellent. Dr Splenser’s nurse is also proficient and friendly.
Good profesional and polite
The wait time was more because I was a new patient but every one else was being called in right away.
Son muy amables en la clínica con la asistente y el doctor los recomiendo
Awesome Doctor. Listened to all concerns and answered all my questions. I have been to several endos and he is the best by far.
Great as usually! Highly recommend Dr. Splenser.
He is very thourough, he listens and then talks. He listened to my suggestions and what I though regarding the research I had done regarding my medical issue. He asked me lots of questions and considered my recommendations for test to satisfy my concerns and questions. He explained symptoms and how they relate to the body and other issues of the body.
He was very nice and showed concern for my well being
Best Doctor I ever Saw and I have major issues with my hormones. Never Saw more through doctor in my 36 years of history
The doctor was attentive and showed real compassion and concern for my health. He took his time with me and didn't make me feel rushed. I truly feel like I have been taking care of and would highly recommend him to any family member or friend
Dr Splenser is an extremely knowledgeable physician with a very progressive approach to medical treatment. In particular, I strongly value that he takes the time to interact with patients. His bedside manner is instructive. In this day and age of managed care, many physicians rush through patient visits. This physician does not. - Extremely satisfied patient.
I'm fairly new to Houston, and this was my first visit with Dr. Splenser. Of course, he was very knowledgeable as expected. He was very professional, and pleasant. He took the time to actually explain his findings during my visit. He's very caring, concerned, and helpful with his patients. I really appreciate that. I was so comfortable with him. It felt like he had been my Endocrinologist for years, so I highly recommend Dr. Splenser!
Dr. Splenser himself was attentive & professional. Unfortunately, his staff was unreliable, inefficient & lacks any genuine concern for the patients. After 3 weeks of repeated calls, the staff kept on telling me that my test results have not been back (one that only takes 2-3 days to receive). I had to call the imaging center myself to resend it before the office acknowledged getting the results. At this time, the nurse supposedly left me a message- which I never got - to tell me results were Normal but needed me to take another procedure. Having multiple nodules with an abnormal lab results is NOT NORMAL! I've decided to go to another endocrinologist at Methodist TMC and found an excellent physician. Never would I go back to this office again.
He was thorough and I felt very comfortable discussing my conditions with him. He was personable and efficient - qualities that make an excellent doctor!
He is a very professional and likeable doctor
Dr Splenser was very knowledgable. He was very through, helpful, informative and kind. I left the office feeling hopeful and at ease that with his help I can get my diabetes under control.
He listens. Researches. Seeks to find answers.
I moved to Houston recently and found Dr. Splenser through Zocdoc. He is the best endocrinologist I have ever had. He is up-to-date with novel medicine and medical practices. He put me on a new medication, which helped me to lower my A1C and I loose some weight. I feel great! Dr. Splenser is a very pleasant and caring doctor and I highly recommend him. His staff is also very nice and helpful.
Dr. Splenser was an excellent doctor. He made both the consultation and the procedure very comfortable. He did a very thorough job with the biopsy he conducted, which I appreciate because sometimes doctors do not get it right the first time from what I have heard from other people who have had the same procedure. I would recommend him to anyone who need an endocrinologist.
I was very impressed with the Dr. and how caring he treated me. But after I called (Friday) my pharmacy I found out the wrong Rx was called in. So I called the Dr. office to informed them the lady that answered said she would informed the Doctor. Called pharmacy (Saturday) was informed my Rx was still not called in so I called the Dr. office and got the answering service so I gave them the information.
6 Stars if they had them!!! I was able to schedule an appointment within 24 hours. Dr. Splenser is amazing doctor, nothing I can say really does justice to the man: he is extremely intelligent, a compassionate and caring person, and a truly outstanding doctor. He is very kind, considerate, calm, positive, thorough, attentive, flexible, personal, and automatically makes his patient feel comfortable. I count myself truly lucky to have found him. I strongly feel that Dr. Splenser is sort of the ideal of a doctor. He genuinely cares, he is professional and he makes an investment in the health and well being of his patients. That is as rare as hens’ teeth in today’s world. If you are looking for a doctor, you could not do better.
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit, he was extremely knowledgeable and made me feel totally comfortable and not judged.
