At Texas Colon & Rectal Specialists, we pride ourselves on exceeding patients’ satisfaction. Discover what our patients are saying about our physicians and staff.
Dr. Crim is one of the best doctors you can ever meet––he is the best. He cares about his patients and he listens to them on what’s going on and he knows what’s going on and his staff is awesome. I went to see Dr. Crim after seeing 3 other doctors and I explained what was going on and he fixed it. I rate Dr. Crim 10 stars. Thanks, Dr. Crim for being the best.”
Dr. Downs is very direct but gentle. He takes a lot of time to explain the process so when you leave his office you are fully armed with information.
Very satisfied with Dr. Odom. Our family has used him for years. He removed part of my brother’s colon and he has been cancer free for 15 years now. Our family uses him for our colonoscopies.
Dr. Stadler, I may not have told you while I was hospitalized what a wonderful, caring, great bedside- mannered doctor you are, but I am praising you for all your care and thoroughness through all that I went through. I was apprehensive and scared to death about my surgery, but you made me feel at ease. You never missed a day visiting me for 16 straight days. You never sent a colleague or another associate to check on me, it was always your caring self that came to visit and for that I am so grateful.
His technique was excellent. I feel like we received the best care possible. He always gave us his undivided attention, answered all our questions and we were very impressed with his bedside manner. Dr. Burleson went out of his way to work with our schedule and even performed reversal surgery on his day off. I highly recommend Dr. Burleson.
Dr. Flores was very knowledgeable and made me feel listened to and cared for. I feel fortunate to have such an excellent, compassionate doctor.
Dr. Lowney has been so very accommodating, warm, very thorough and exceptionally good at her work.
Dr. Simmang is amazing. During my visit with him, I was very nervous. I was new to my colostomy pouch and my visit was to schedule my j-pouch operation. Dr. Simmang was very calming, he is easy to talk to and overall a caring doctor. I had my successful j-pouch surgery and Dr. Simmang has been great. I would recommend him - don't think you'll be disappointed.
Dr. Crim is the gold standard. Had my colon resection done by Dr. Crim and I'm on the road to recovery. You don't know how good a surgeon is technically, until the hospital nurses can't praise his surgical skills enough when examining my surgical area. He takes time to answer our questions and went beyond the standard working hours to get us answers and results. I would definitely use him again if needed and recommend him to anyone looking for a great doctor.
Dr. Hurley and his associates saved my life. He is warm, very kind, well bedside mannered and very knowledgeable about his specialty. He stayed with me as a patient until he could fix me when other doctors could not.
Dr. Kandel made me feel at ease. He was very patient and kind, and he explained everything in detail, including all my options. He is very professional. I will definitely see Dr. Kandel again.
My experience with Dr. Novosad has been positive. She is thorough in explaining the situation, while maintaining a pleasant attitude. She listens well which is a rarity among physicians these days.
Always kind and concerned. Couldn’t be happier with the outcomes and couldn’t be happier with Dr. Downs.
I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Macaluso!!! He was so great with my teenage daughter after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. He saved her life and our family’s life. He is a top surgeon who knows his stuff! He is very personable and always treated my daughter good. I've had to wait for over an hour in his office before. But remember, you usually have to wait for the best ones!!!
My primary care physician, Dr. Jeffrey Stewart, recommended I see one of the doctors at TCRS for a colon cancer screening. First, it impressed me how many locations they had in the Dallas area to choose from. I picked the Carrollton location as it was in the same building as my primary doctor and was convenient from my house. Additionally, I wanted to get the colonoscopy done before I left for a vacation - only two weeks out. Dr. Hughes and his staff were extremely friendly, professional and accommodating in getting me in for the initial visit and then the procedure. He was very helpful and also educational in walking me through the entire process and follow up. At 55 years old, I am very confident they were thorough in their screening to ensure I had no issues. I wish all doctor offices had this same ease of access.
I was referred to Dr. Gregorcyk and was very impressed with her knowledge and professionalism. I was seeing her for an issue that was not the most pleasant for a patient to discuss and she made me feel comfortable and at ease. When explaining things, she didn’t talk down to me, as some doctors do.
I just celebrated 20 years since receiving an ileostomy under the gifted hands of Dr. Don Read and Dr. Randy Crim. I have been disease free and live a normal married lifestyle. Thank you for having me as your patient, may God continue to bless and keep you.
Dr. Dwyer is very personable and takes the time to put you at ease. He has an excellent bedside manner and very accessible. Highly recommend!
I called with an immediate need for treatment and the office accommodated me without hesitation. Everything about my treatment and the courtesy and compassion of the office staff was outstanding, and greatly appreciated. Dr. Hughes is a gifted and dedicated professional.
I can’t emphasize how much of an amazing surgeon Dr. Hurley is. The pain was minimal, the recovery was quick, and the scarring was minimal for what was performed. I had a good amount of anxiety before each surgery and then he would come in to greet me with a calm and confident demeanor that really helped calm me down.
This was the best doctor I’ve ever been to. The environment is great. All the receptionists were polite and respectful. Dr. Macaluso made you feel like you were special and that he cared about your well being. He even personally called me when I was having problems just to make sure I was healing well. So I give Dr. Mac 10 stars for helping me make the right decision. I tell everybody about him, and this is the doctor you need to choose.
I had a radical colectomy with J pouch performed by Dr. Cline in February of 2004 due to a long history of ulcerative colitis. Dr. Cline explained all my options, the risks and the benefits of the procedure. My quality of life has been excellent ever since and I thank him for giving my life back to me. He is an excellent surgeon, compassionate and always takes time to make sure his patients are well informed.
Dr. Fleeger was very calm, easy going, efficient and professional when explaining the colonoscopy procedure during office visit. Waited 15 minutes to see him and he was in and out in another 10-15 min. Procedure itself was not much different (although 15-20 minutes longer) than a rectal exam for prostate cancer. A little sedative (I did not go to sleep but no pain at all) and you are done. Nice nurse staff also. I would highly rec. because if you do have colon/rectal cancer he is the expert in this surgery.
Dr. Fox is amazing. My 30 year old son has colorectal cancer and she is his surgeon. Dr. Fox is competent: she has his chart memorized and is able to discuss what is going on with us in detail. I feel my son is in such good hands. Her bedside manner and her concern are excellent. She said she chose this area of medicine because she can use robotics and save lives. That she has done for us. I am eternally grateful to her for her skills and compassion.
Dr. Graves is a well experienced surgeon and he made an accurate diagnosis the very first time I visited the clinic (my primary physician had misdiagnosed my condition and had sent me to the clinic for a specialist’s opinion). He was really kind, and had an excellent bedside manner. He explained my condition very clearly, walked me through my treatment and answered all my questions patiently. I would definitely recommend him if you are looking for a professional colorectal surgeon.
Dr. Lakshman is the perfect combination of knowledge in his field as well as having an outstanding bedside manner. He makes you feel extremely comfortable during your office visit in what can be an uncomfortable situation. I was extremely fortunate to find what I consider to be the best Colorectal doctor in all Central Texas. I highly recommend him to all my friends and family. He is quite simply the best in his field.
Dr. Mangione saved my life! He detected a cancerous growth before it metastasized and removed it before it could ruin my health. Highly recommend his skills. He always explained everything in an easy-to-understand language and was just the best. I am cancer free!
Dr. Andrew Miller is one of the best in the business! His knowledge and connections make him on the forefront of colon and rectal surgeries. The advanced davinci robotic surgery saved my life and made me cancer free! My level of comfort after the surgery was remarkably good. I went home within 4 days and was able to function fine at home. I highly recommend him! I would also like to note that he prepares your significant others to understand the process as well! The best of the best!
Dr. Shah is absolutely amazing. He has made the experience quick and smooth. He creates a comfortable environment so you can be open about your issue. He is very efficient with his work and listens to everything thoroughly to properly diagnose and treat. He is truly the best!
Dr. Solis has been working with my family and I for over 10 years now. He is an excellent doctor who is very knowledgeable in his field. He has treated my wife for colon cancer through surgery and continues to provide the colonoscopies as scheduled. His office staff are the best as well. I would HIGHLY recommend this doctor for care, especially if you are being treated for colon cancer.
