Francis is just so amazing! My husband and I both see him. He truly does care about his patients and their well beings.
My visit was today and I couldn't have been more impressed. I was nervous about finding a new medical provider and have been putting it off for far too long but I am SO glad someone recommended this place to me! The staff was great and Francis was literally the best! Never felt so comfortable and hope I never have to go any place else. If anyone is looking for a transgender friendly medical provider, this is the place for you!

From checking in to checking out, everyone strives to make your appointment stress free. A fabulous team.
Very well mannered and understanding. I felt at ease with him helping and treating me. All of the staff was nice, would definitely be seeing him for future care!
He did a great job listening and assessing my concerns. He explained details thoroughly. Friendly staff. Very nice office.
Great listener. Was a good partner in helping to resolve some medical issues.
Great bedside manner. I never felt rushed like I usually do at appointments with other providers.
Nurse Francis and his staff don't make my family and I feel like just another patient walking in, but instead he cares for our health like a family member would care. Always answers all questions in depth, also takes the time to listen to how we really feel and what is going on. I highly recommend Zest practice!
Great clinic. Great customer service. Clean
Francis is the best healthcare provider around. Going to the Dr. is not always a fun thing to do but it is always a pleasure to see Francis and the entire staff at Zest Family. I wouldn't just recommend Zest Family Practice to my friends and family, I'd insist they go to Zest if they needed a new healthcare provider!
Staff was friendly and Dr. Francis was very nice. I will be returning for other treatments : )
Always takes his time to talk to his patients. He really cares unlike other practitioners who treat you like just another sick person. Staff is always smiling and very nice. Him and his crew are always ready to answer any questions with no rush.
So It was one of best medical visits ever. The office staff are extremely nice and helpful. The office itself is very clean, stylish and comfortable. Now to the important part, NP Francis is beyond amazing. He truly cares about his patients and their wellbeing. He spent more than an hour with me explaining every and each single issue i have. He is going to be my primary care doctor as long as i live in Austin.
As always, my visit was outstanding. Francis always has the best bedside manner and is always informative and understanding. My family actually loves going to this office.
Just moved to Cedar Park and didn't know what to expect. Promptly greeted by staff member. Well mannered and well spoken. Great staff. Friendly. No feeling of being rush. Explain things in plain language. Clean facility. Overall, extremely great experience on initial visit.
Very satisfied and I will go to him when necessary.
Excellent facilities, kind staff, open to hear your concern and to manage them in the best way.
Robert was very friendly, professional and efficient as he performed my annual physical. He explained the process very well and answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend him.
I was in so much pain and completely uncomfortable and the entire staff at Zest made me feel right at home. No one wants to be sick—but they made the best of it for me. So glad that I found these wonderful people. ...not being sick anymore isn't bad either :)
Francis is funny and frank and always concerned, no matter the issue. Health problems can be tricky but he talks through possible causes and a range of treatments with you. He is always very upbeat and makes me feel empowered by having options to try right away whenever I have a problem. The nurses are very personable and make me feel very comfortable. Whenever I call the office needing help changing pharmacies or making an adjustment to my prescriptions they always call back within an hour or two and are very proactive, even with small things. They get things done fast and are extremely supportive. On top of that, I've never had an insurance/billing issue as a result of a mistake (which happens to me all the time at other clinics). Francis is a great practitioner and has a great team!
I don't know where this office came from but they are beyond amazing. Very compassionate and concerned. I have never been treated so well before!
Francis is very professional, courteous and kind. The staff is very friendly and warm. A very good experience.
Such a nice man and very knowledgable, with a good sense of humor!

I just love him He's caring and makes me feel important, something I haven't had with healthcare professionals. :)
Very informative and kind! Didn't feel rushed at all ! Best doctor I have ever gone to by far!
As always wonderful!!
.I felt like he really listened and asked lots of questions. He made me feel very comfortable. It was very refreshing. Will definately be a returning patient.
He listens, cares, and makes sure all of your questions and concerns are taken care of. The best practitioner I've ever seen.
Francis was great! He was thorough and friendly and made me feel at ease during the visit.
My partner and I had our first appointment with Francis and he was very patient and took the necessary time to go over all our needs and concerns. I would highly recommend him and his practice.
Very thorough and professional . It was great!
I drove about 20-25 minutes to visit Dr. Francis Mijares! And it was so worth it! He made me feel comfortable, he was very personable, and understanding. I'm so glad I made the appointment with him.
This is a fantastic office with caring professional care. Every interaction has been world class with the respect and concern shown to me and my children off the charts amazing!
Robert is a wonderful listener !
Hands down most comfortable visit I've had at the doctors. Great bedside manners, professional but also has empathy. Don't be fooled by the trendy office environment, which caters to their cosmetic line of services. They are the real deal when it comes to general family practice with a trendy/high-tech twist. I've never had a health professional spend so much time explaining the details of your health results. Never felt rushed by anyone in the staff. Robert, Brenda and David are all great! I will be using them moving forward for all my health care needs.
Thought Robert Francis Mijares was a refreshing change from prior clinic visits. His personality was very warm and his knowledge unmatched. The Clinic was also amazing! A very comfortable environment. I recommend highly.
I drove over an hour and a half to see Robert Mijares and I was not disappointed. The staff is great and Dr. Mijares really listens and cares about how you're feeling. I highly recommend Dr. Mijares!
Absolutely wonderful! He is an artist in his work. I can't wait for my next visit!
Robert is one of the best doctors I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. His knowledge and focus was entirely focused on what I need! I am reccomending my entire family and friends to see him!!!
Dr. Francis is extremely competent, capable, and above all, he's a nice guy - fun, friendly, and empathic. He's honest about his pricing and his treatments, and he's always made me and my family feel comfortable and welcome. Zest Family Medicine has a great staff, all of whom we've gotten to know over the course of the last year - each of them are as competent as the doc himself and they greet us by name when we walk in the door. I can't recommend them enough!
Great experience, made to feel right at home! Everyone on staff was extremely nice and caring. Will definitely be going back!
Best doctors appointment I've ever had. Had to get blood drawn as well, and Brenda did a FANTASTIC job. Definitely going here from now on, everyone was excellent.
best doc I've seen in years I do mean years always friendly knowledgeable goes out of his was to help! Great office staff to
Francis is amazing! He is truly concerned, listened to everything I had to say and is doing everything he can to help me get well. Great find!!!!
Dr. Mijares was very helpful. He had great staff and very good bedside manner!
This was an excellent medical experience. Starting with the beautifully decorated office and the calming atmosphere. The staff were wonderful and extremely helpful and polite. Francis answered all of my questions and it was very professional personable and friendly. I will definitely recommend him to all of my friends and get my husband in there ASAP for his annual exam.
Great service and very good attention.
The most comprehensive medical treat I have ever experienced!
I usually hate going to the doctor, but Francis is different. He was professional and at ease. Very knowledgeable and he did not judge my lifestyle. Loved his comment " you only live once, make the best out of it". Have recommended him to all my friends so far.
Robert Francis Mijares throughly explained my options and answered any questions I had. I had a chemical peel and during the process he constantly asked if I was ok. I had peels done before at other places but this is now my place I will use. Great experience! K.M.
What a pleasant experience to have a FNP that actually CARES! Francis took the time to do a thorough physical, and recommended blood work with an insanely good bedside manner. He spoke to me with genuine interest that made him feel more like a friend than a medical professional. I've found my permanent health care guy finally!
I've known Francis for several years as a friend and as my primary care provider back in Beaumont before I moved here. I'm actually glad I get to have him as my PCP again. He is an awesome FNP that knows his stuff and I would recommend him to anyone that needs to see him.
I am very pleased and impressed with their facility as well as the kind, pleasant folks working there.
He was absolutely FANTASTIC. Very intuitive, listened to my concerns, and took great care of me. Even the office staff was magnificent! I am so pleased that I found him and my husband will be scheduling an appointment with him for his physical soon! :)
my visit with the Dr & staff was exceptional, in my opinion. He was caring, and professional, listened to any needs or concern I had and I was out of the office in no time
I think he is wonderful and very caring
The most comprehensive medical experience ever.
Took time to listen. Great bedside manner. I felt he was really concerned about me. Best experience I've had at an office visit anywhere!
Awesome guy! Very professional and easy to talk to...never felt rushed. I'll definitely be coming back
We have just recently found Robert. We were in need of a good family practice physician. Good medical care and confidence in our physician is extremely important. We have been through many doctors and have finally found a home with Zest. I would recommend it to anyone and will... going forward. I can't say enough on his bedside manner and getting to the issue in a timey manner.
Friendly, informative, explains whats happening and how medicine will work in great detail.
He was very down to earth, easy to talk to about my concerns, and approachable. It's very important gay men to be able to talk to a medical professional about issues affecting us.
Very personable, I believe I like him as a primary care physician . Good "Bedside manner"very informative about my condition and the treatment plan.
Francis is great!!! Attentive, knowledgeable, caring, makes you feel comfortable and has a wonderful welcoming personality! His office guy, was as nice as he was! I am beyond excited to have finally found someone I like and That i can schedule an appointment within days and not weeks out! He is close to my home, his office is beautiful and has the latest technology, spotless clean, it just exceeded all of my expectations! Congrats Zest Family Practice!
Courteous, friendly, professional. Definitely a find. Plan to use again when needed.
Excellent service! Francis addressed my medical needs professionally.
Very easy to talk to , very knowledgable would reccomend him to anyone!
I thought that he and all of his staff were very warm, friendly and attentive in a highly progressive looking and well equipped office!
He was informative and genuinely helpful. Very personable and friendly. I felt I could talk openly with him regarding my issue.
It was great! I will be back for sure!
I had met him at another facility several months ago and like him immediately. When I heard he had opened an office I, needing a new primary care physician (because of the difficulty of being seen) called and was able to see him right away! He makes you feel comfortable and listens to all you have to say. Advises on prescriptions and gives you the info you need. (He is also good and smooth with giving injections!)
Francis is very thoughtful, caring and compassionate care giver and everything I could want in my healthcare provider! He addressed every concern I brought in and went above and beyond in dealing with my health issues. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to find a healthcare provider than can truly connect with.
Great with my five year old daughter. Very knowledgable and patient
