My daughter has been dealing with severe stomach cramping for two weeks once we were referred to Dr. Narvaez within 10 minutes of looking at the labs and the tests that we had done he knew what was going on and set into motion a plan to take care of it. As a parent I can't begin to explain how hopeful I was that my daughter would start feeling back to normal.

Always a good experience
Dr. Narvaez has been my doctor for about 15 years now. He is so professional, knowledgeable, and has a great bedside manner. He knows his business and is well known within the medical community.
Liked that he was not in a hurry to get through the appointment and even had labs done immeadiately in office to avoid having to wait longer for test results. He treats you like a person, not a number- very personable.
Surprised that he discussed other options and ways in which I could better myself so there would be less doctor visits. Real professional!
Excellent procedure. All staff were very professional and happy, nice people! I was finished and on my way home an hour early!
He is very honest with you,explains everything with you and listens to all your concerns and questions. Never rushes you no matter how busy he may be.
Very professional staff and very caring individuals
Very professional, explained everything he was doing and what he would do at next appointment. Set up follow up visit. Also gave advise on eating habits, exercise and diet.
Endoscopy at SAGEC. Great staff. Went very well.
Great visit. Highly satisfied.
This visit was great! Dr. Narvaez is personable and gracious.
The wait wasn' t worth the end results. This is not good business for Veterans. The VA should investigate who they are having treat our Veterans. This Dr. Has a practice which requires Vets to travel from way North of SA all the way to Stone Oak. No thanks.

He's very knowledgeable and informative. He explains everything where I can understand. Very compassionate.
On my first visit Dr Narvaez is an outstanding doctor. He explains everything to you. If you need a liver doctor I would chose him
Explained what was going on and mapped out a plan for treatment.
I was very disappointed in the long wait time! I was instructed to arrive at 8:15 am today, for a 9:15 am Colonoscopy. My husband & I arrived an hour early, due to the inclement weather & that today was the first day back to school for most of the SA area. I can understand why I would've had to wait till 8:15 - 8:30, before being called back, but there is no excuse as to why I had to wait 40 minutes! All my paperwork was in order, with my completing the pre-registration forms on-line as recommended. I was brought to the back, & to the pre-op bed around 10 a.m.! I had been the second patient to sign in, with numerous patients signing in after me. Yet I was the very last one to be called back! One of the other patients, who also was a patient of Dr. Narvaez, signed in just a few minutes before me & was taken to the back promptly. As I am hypoglycemic, weak and my stomach was queasy, I was most uncomfortable and irritated with the long wait of 40 minutes. Again, there is no excuse for the 40 minute wait, as I did have a scheduled appointment. I do understand that some patient(s) may have had difficulty with pre-Op, but that shouldn't have affected my wait time to this degree.
Dr. Narvaez has cared for my wife and myself over the past six years. He is extremely caring and compassionate, he listens and addresses any concerns you as a patient may have. We have recommended Dr. Narvaez to other family members. His office staff are very pleasant and helpful.
Visit was excellent, he was very concise and to the point. Spent time explaining lots of necessary procedures we should be aware of.
He was through yet I don't know much yet, til after test results.
He listened to everything I had to say. Never felt rushed. That's hard to find in a Doctor now days.
Dr Narvaez has always listened to my concerns with my on going UC issues and this visit was no different. He changed my meds as needed.

I am very relieved to know that my tests were normal. I still have acid reflux but I think I will be able to manage it better after discussing it in depth with the doctor. I am glad that he is a very thorough doctor. We have ruled out any major problems. Now I just need to continue to take medicine twice a day, be conscious of my diet and take a liquid antacid when needed. I am hoping that over a little time that my acid reflux situation will be resolved. Thanks, Karen

Very friendly and listens well. He shows that he really cares and is willing to do what it takes to care for you. My case is complicated and complex and its important that a doctor values their patient. He focused on what I needed and what would be the best plan for my care.
Dr Narvaez has amazing interactive skills ("bedside manner") with his patients - I'd say better than most doctors - in addition to his excellent diagnostic skills. I find him to be most definitely worth the wait.

Dr. Narvaez and his staff were truly amazing and helpful!!! His bedside manner is excellent. Very good Doctor who has a great relationship with his staff.
This was a follow up appointment to review test results an develop a treatment plan. I arrived a full 30 minutes early, having resigned myself to the fact it would be better to wait in the doctor's pleasant office as opposed to being cold outside in the car. The receptionist immediately greeted me and signed me in within a minute of my arrival. I sat for less than a minute when a staff person took me inside to get vitals. From there, I was escorted to an examining room and the doctor came in within a very few minutes. The doctor reviewed my case, fully answering all questions and clarifying in layman's language the issues that troubled me. A treatment plan was completed. I was more than satisfied and can highly recommend Dr. Narvaez.
Dr. Narvaez is very thorough and I appreciate that he wants to check all avenues before making any major decisions.
Dr Narvaez is very personable. He explains to where you can understand. He listens and he does not rush you
Dr. Narvaez spent quite a bit of time with me. He was informative, friendly, honest, and offered sound medical advice. It's not often a doctor can or will invest that much time in educating a patient and offering helpful tips to healthier living.
Impresses with high quality of the facility and staff. Was seen right away and staff very courteous and professional. The doctor listened well and then gave me a clear explanation of my situation.
Frist visit was a good experience.
He is very attentive,explains everything and listens too.
Incredibly attentive and really cared about getting to the bottom of my ailment and getting me better. I wish I had come across Dr. Narvaez sooner. The world would be a much better place of all doctors showed the type of care and attention that this doctor has.
Have been a patient of his since 2004. Very pleased with his professionalism and thoroughness!!!
Dr. Narvaez loves his profession. He's always up to date with new information & science involved. I'm glad he's my doctor.
