"Dr. Tal Raphaeli was the best for my procedure. I literally haven't felt like this since I was a teenager. I truly thank Dr. Raphaeli for getting me back to normal. I would definitely refer him to anyone."

"I visited Dr. Azmuddin for a routine colonoscopy, and he did an excellent job. He is very competent, intelligent, and friendly. For the first time, I experienced almost no recovery time from the procedure. After a short stay in the hospital, I walked out with my husband to enjoy a large breakfast. I am also pleased that Dr Azmuddin gave me a choice of 2 good hospitals: Houston Methodist-Willowbrook and St. Lukes. I chose Houston Methodist, and was very happy with all of their services."

"Excellent experience. Dr. Raphaeli & his Staff are EXCELLENT! One suggestion. When one is required to fill out new patient paperwork they should be advised when the appointment is made and then be given the option to have said paperwork mailed to them so they can complete at home where all of their records and information is at. That would speed thing up for all concerned and make it the requirement more much patient friendly !!"

"Dr. Raphaeli took his time at our initial appointment and explained the causes and concerns with my hernia and the mesh repair implant surgery that he recommended. He answered all my questions and made sure that I had a full understanding of the procedure and recovery process. For the surgery we chose Houston Methodist Willowbrook and he and the staff at the hospital took excellent care of me both pre and post op. He and his staff offer the best care I could ask for I highly recommend Dr. Raphaeli. "
