Verified Patient Reviews
I showed up early for my appointment, and the nurse got the "preliminaries" (vital signs; blood draw, etc.) done right away. Dr. P was a few minutes after the appointment time, but well within expectations. As usual, Dr. P addressed my concerns and suggestions compassionately and authoritatively, deferring to my wishes whenever practical.
First time visiting Dr. Paulsel and I have never experienced such a professional, proficient doctor's office before. The facility was nice and clean, I was seen as soon as I arrived. All the staffs including nurses and doctor made the visit very comfortable. They definitely know what they're doing!

This was my first visit to Dr. Paulsel. I chose him because my insurance changed, once again. I think he is through, experienced, asks pertinent questions, and knows what he is doing. He didn't seem to be in a rush, but covered a lot of ground. I plan on staying with him.

I thought it was strange Dr. Paulsel didn't use gloves while examining me and I also thought he seemed a little dismissive of some of my concerns.
Very nice and thorough. The office runs like a well oiled machine. Great staff. Lots of friendly people.
Dr. Paulsel was kind and thorough. Also, the nurse who drew my blood was very good at that - it was fast, pain free, and there was no bruise at all. I would be comfortable to be the patient of either of them in the future.
Annual physical was very efficient, no waiting whatsoever. I felt fortunate to have access to a doctor with so much experience.

Excellent Doctor! I would recommend him to anyone!
I like his calm and conservative approach. He's a doctor's doctor.
Excellent facility and Dr. Paulsel is a very good and competent doctor.
I have just moved to Houston and was looking for a good primary care physician. I found one with Dr. Paulsel! Everybody was professional and courteous. I had my blood test done within 10 minutes from being shown to the examining room. The wait was very short for Dr. Paulsel and the initial interview was very professional yet warm and courteous. Dr. Paulsel has a gentle personality that can relate to people. He was not hurried in giving me a physivcal exam and spent time sincerely wanting to learn my past health history. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
This was probably one of the best medical experiences I have had. The nurse showed me to my room right away, she was very friendly and professional. The Dr. Paulsel was very professional I was very impressed and being a nurse I have worked with a lot of doctors he was the best!
He was terrific. Seemingly thorough, but also a calm temperament and personable. He listened attentively as well. Finally, if he didn't know an answer to my question, he said so. I would recommend him.
I always feel very comfortable talking to Dr. Paulsel and he makes sure he spends as much time I need in order to address any issues. I've never felt rushed. Highly recommended!
Very courteous, thorough, and patient. Willing to take the time to make sure all your concerns are addressed and gives clear and concise direction in dealing with whatever problem there is. Staff is very pleasant and quick. His nurse exceeded expectations in every aspect and is willing to answer any questions you have. A great experience all around. You would be hard pressed to find a better PCP.
Dr. Paulsel went into detail explaiining my medical problem. He had a very cordial bedside manner. Staff was also very pleasant. Overall a very good experience.
Dr Paulsel is very professional and very thorough.
Dr. Paulsel and his nursing staff made my annual physical a very comfortable experience. Paulsel referred me to a pulmonologist for some additional testing and scheduled my chest X-rays all during the same appointment and within the same building, with very little wait time in between. I'm extremely pleased with the speed and efficiency with which my appointment was carried out, as well as the manner in which I was treated... Highly recommended!
the visit was great , everyone was freindly and professional the only thing that after I was seen by the nurse ,I waited quite a long time untill the doctor came to see me . My whole visit took about hour and half
I was very comfortable with him. He spent the time to answer all my questions, and did a thorough annual physical. Best doctor I've been to in years.
I was very pleased with the appointment. I had a very short wait, if any, to see the nurse practitioner and get started on the appointment. After that was complete, I had a few minute wait at most to see the doctor. We talked for a pretty long time by modern doctor standards and I felt my needs were addressed. I recommend Dr Paulsel for someone looking for a new doctor.
A highly regarded physician in a highly regarded practice. He's a "doctor's doctor, and I first heard about him from other physicians who he treats. As a physician myself, I'm always glad to refer my patients to him. I appreciate his experience, knowledge, and conservative approach. The clinic itself checks me in quickly. I love how it's close to the Medical Center but away from it, which makes a visit more relaxing in terms of traffic and parking.
This is the nicest/newest office I've been to. There are a lot of tests and specialists in house so it's convenient. Everything is clean and modern and the staff is very friendly. My only complaint is that everything is expensive compared to other doctors/specialists, even though I have good insurance. I guess you get what you pay for though.
