Dr. Padilla, the Nurse Practitioners and his staff are all remarkable. I have been going here for 5 years, and am never disappointed in the treatment I receive. Sometimes I make an appointment, and sometimes I have to walk in, but I am always pleased when I leave! Not only do Dr. Padilla and the NPs listen to what your need is, they get to know you and really listen to anything you are concerned about, or wanting more info on medicines. I cannot recommend this office highly enough!

This office always gets me in and out so fast. I have never seen a ‘quick care’ like this be so efficient, clean, and friendly. I’ve seen the Dr and his Nurse on separate occasions and they always prescribe what I need and are compassionate and funny.

I am so glad I found Dr. Padilla in an internet search for my husband to go to for his preventive care, I think 5 or 6 years ago. I read the good reviews, the medical back ground and his picture in their website says it all. That smile is not just for the camera, even in person he has that pleasant aura about him, excellent bedside manner, very patient and considerate. I work in a facility with at least 7 doctors and when the management decided to have in their policy that employees have to look for preventive care outside the facility, I had no second thoughts about going to him. Today was my second PE though I had seen him for a few minor issues before. Oh and not to forget about the staff, they are all nice. And the location is perfect.

God send. He was so friendly and made me feel super comfortable and explained what I had right away. I moved to Dallas three years ago and I hadn’t found any Doc that I knew I wanted to keep seeing until him. Highly recommend. Michael at the front desk was also amazing- helped explained my insurance without me even asking. I’m grateful that there are still doctors and staff who genuinely care!

The receptionist Michael is TERRIBLE. I loved dr Padilla and valued his medical expertise.. however, he lost my business because of how unprofessional, un organized, and flat out disrespectful his receptionist Michael was. If you are looking for a doctors office to manage your prescriptions and to send monthly refill requests to your pharmacy, STAY AWAY! Trust me on this one. Unless you enjoy having to call their office 5-10 times asking them to send your refill to the pharmacy (most of the time your call won’t even be answered or returned nor your voicemails listened to.. another red flag). And when your call is answered, it might as well not be because of how un helpful and lazy Michael is. If Hillcrest got a new receptionist who is actually capable of doing their job, I would recommend this practice but as long as Michael is employed there, STEER CLEAR
