I had a pleasant first and second visit with her. She was nice and had a good bedside manner. She took her time with me. Asked me lots of questions and wanted me to ask her lots of questions. As faras my treatment goes she told me what would be best for my situation but I wasn't able to do it. She gave me another option until I am able to the other one. I think Dr. Bethea is great!

The wait time for initial consultation is long, but expected and they told me in advance to prepare for it. Dr. Bethea did a great job taking a holistic approach to my concerns and not trying to zero in on anyone thing. I appreciated that she considered as much as possible. She is very detail oriented and asked lots of good questions of me.

I was very happy with my first visit with Dr. Louise Bethea, for my food allergies. Her staff were very nice and professional. She has a great bedside manner; unlike many doctors I have met, she was attentive, comprehensive, and seemedto actually care about what I had to say instead of rushing me out the door. I felt very comfortable in her presence, which I can't say for a lot of people! She also didn't pressure me into undergoing tests for which I'm not sure my insurance would cover at the time. It was a longer wait compared to other doctor offices I've been to recently, probably because she does give the patient a lot of one-on-one quality time, so just make sure you budget that into your schedule to be safe. I would recommend her to anyone in the area seeking an allergist. :-)

It was great to be able to make my appointment online. Dr. Bethea's staff takes complete notes and reviews any changes between this visit and your previous one. She reviews it before she comes in and goes over everything with you.Sometimes you have to wait a while to get in to the examing room, but it is okay because you know she will spend whatever amount of time is required to handle your case.

She was very thorough but I wasn't very happy when she walked out of the room to let me put on a gown and didn't come back for 20 minutes. My time is just as important as hers. Other than that she was good.

Dr. Bethea has been my allergy/asthma doctor for 18 years. I was really sick and had been to the ER a few times for asthma when I came to her. I have not been to the ER since. She worked withme to get it under control, and was the first doctor who listened to me. I am so much healthier now. She is also so smart she has diagnosed what other doctors have missed. She has also kept some very good staff for years, which shows stability and a well run office.

I like that Dr. Bethea takes a lot of time to ask questions, to answer questions, to get all of her facts first before she does any type of diagnosis. And then goes over all possible solutions with you before she starts throwing pills at you.

This was my initial visit. There was a little bit of wait. But the process was very thorough. The nurse took detailed notes. The doctor took the time to understand what might be causing my allergic skin reaction, prescribed meds andsuggested the path forward. I would certainly recommend this doctor.

Very good visit with extensive allergy questionaire. Very professional, nice understanding Dr...I did mention I was self pay & would have appreciated them telling me prices before running tests, but my fault for not asking- was just out ofit with feeling sick and all. I did have to go back to pick up new RX because I was allergic to first steroid inhaler, so that worked well- however could not get a refill called in because they wanted me to come in for a skin test before refilling any medication (but i did get a refill from my previous dr) I just couldnt afford another approx $400 appointment at the time...I was concerned about not having the medication on board...but now I just dont mind driving to Kingwood for my previous allergy Dr. Also New patient visit for me lasted about 2-3 hours, if you are short on time, make sure you know first time visits take a while.
