Looks like I have found a new primary care doctor .The staff was great, check in and out. The lab work was done right there in the same office. The facility is new with up dated equipment. Doctor Licon answered thequestions I had and I hope I answered his. I recommend this facility, staff and doctor Licon.

Dr. Licon is awesome! He is a friendly person, so I definitely believe he cares about how I am doing. He is also very good about explaining things so I can understand them. His staff is great, too. Like almost everyother doctor office, the wait time gets longer and longer. I did not sit in the lobby a long time, but did have a pretty long wait in the exam room between the nurse and the doctor.

I had an initial visit with Dr. Licon earlier today, and it went well. I am new to San Antonio, and he was able to provide me with particular referrals I needed, one of which he made sure I had beforeleaving the office. The others were sent via email only an hour or so later. Most impressive. Obviously his staff are well trained and efficient. I am already referring a family member to him.

Went to my first appointment ,Waited over an hour to be seen and when the Dr finally visited with me , it was very rushed. I didn’t get to ask questions and he seemed uninterested in my concerns. I was prettydisappointed in my experience and felt like i wasted my time.

He was finally able to solve my problems I had been having with numerous doctors over medication management! He listened to me, and cared about what I had to say about what works and what hasn't for me. I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Licon, seemed like he would be a wonderful MD, however we were quite disappointed when we got there, waited, filled out all the paperwork only to find out that we needed a geriatric doctor. We would’ve thought with all theon line information we gave as well as my initial walk-in visit to inquire about new patients letting the staff I spoke to know my mother was overweight and almost 80 yrs old with health issues coming from another state. I have to always seek out locations beforehand for accessibility before I take my mom anywhere. I think they would’ve told me they’re not taking patients at my mothers age and size. So it seemed like a great waste of our time. But otherwise the service, staff was great and the doctor was wonderful during our short visit with him. So we went home and I scheduled another appointment with a Geriatric MD for next week. Overall I recommend it for younger people and to ask more questions before filling out all the paperwork and scheduling an appointment.

He listened to me, as well as reviewed the notes in chart. (You'd be surprised how many doctors don't do this.) I was very comfortable with our conversation about my health. He was compassionate, encouraging, and asked questions, and didn'torder unnecessary blood work. It seemed as though he takes an active role in the office management, as I saw him interact with several staff members. I find this a sign of respect for his staff as well as a sign he is personally vested in the practice. His demeanor with all, including my young child who was with me for my appointment, was pleasant, respectful, and kind. A+

I like that I can schedule same day appointments. I don't like that everything seems to be in a hurry. I get time efficiency but not at the cost of feeling like I have been checked in and off of alist. I do come regularly. So it's the only negaitive. Knowledgeable doctor. All staff needs to slow down and smile.

Dr. Licon helped me with a physical required for electroconvulsive therapy. He did recommend me to a cardiologist based on a slightly off ECG (the cardiologist took one look and let me go), but I commend the attention to detail.

Dr. Licon was great.I am new to Texas and in search of a new doc. Listened to my concerns, discussed how best to move forward, and was very friendly to boot. Since I am getting up there in age, middle fifties,nice to have someone explain what all the little aches and pains could be and offer the best ways to remedy. Office staff and nurse were very nice as well.

Extremely upsetting! On my first visit he referred me to a psychiatrist who completely lied in her notes! I swear she was writing about a different person & she advised me to continue to get my anxiety meds from Dr. Licon.He has refused to believe me & has referred me to a different psychiatrist, but due to my previous referral he sent me to, I'm terrified to see anyone he sends me to. He refuses to continue to fill my anxiety meds & today my kid asked why. He said I was under psychiatric care, which I am not, due to her lying & what she wrote in her notes & I have told him this at every appt since & he has told me to get a new psychiatrist! My kid got upset due to him starting me on the meds & now refuses to fill them. I saw that quack psychiatrist for maybe 15min & she barely listened to me! She even took a lunch order during this time & our appt was 1 day after the anniversary of my son being killed! How she came up with what she wrote, I may never know, I do know it wasn't me & she DID tell me to continue to get my anxiety meds from my pcp. I will be finding a new pcp who trusts me & understands my illness, not only my physical, but mental, also.

Dr. Licon's staff was friendly and courteous, they took the time to ask questions and actually understood what I was saying. Dr. Licon himself seemed to keep up on current research, after my exam he took me off of one ofmy medications and scheduled a followup for next month, without my having to ask about it. This was by far one of the better experiences I've had at a primary care physician's office in a VERY long time, I really think I've found a new doctor.

I was looking for a new Primary Care Provider. Dr Lincon was upfront in telling me that my healthcare was too complex for a Family Care Provider and that I needed to select an Internal Medicine Specialist as a Primary CareProvider. His office provided me with a list of qualified specialists to consider.
