Avoid at all costs!!! Terrible doctor who imposes conservative beliefs on patients!..., May 21, 2013
I had slim pickings with my new HMO so I chose Dr. Galiano because he was downtown near my office. I was always in/out in 30 minutes which was great BUT he would always make snide comments to me. He asked "Why would you need a blood test for STDs? Are you promiscuous?" All I wanted was to get a checkup and figured I could test for STDs since they were already taking my blood. I didn't need a judgement. Recently I went in to get a blood test to see if I was pregnant. This was an unplanned pregnancy so it was really scary. He proceeded to lecture me by saying "The body is made for reproducing and you should not be having sex if you do not want to reproduce." I have never been more offended in my life! He also refused a blood test because he said it would be a waste of money and I needed to wait longer than 2.5 weeks. 2.5 weeks or not I was scared and needed medical guidance in which I received judgement and lectures. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!
Waste of my time, poor attitude, service from staff..., Feb 22, 2013
I had to make at least 12 calls before I was able to reach the office and schedule an appointment. At times the line was not working. Other times the person left me on hold so long I had to hang up. Finally, I spoke with someone able to answer some basic questions and I accepted the first appointment available 2.5 months later.
Before agreeing to request her services I requested to meet the doctor and pay for her time. Her staff person said she didn't know what the cost was that the price was up to the doctor.
The morning of my appointment the office seemed geared for high volume and low personal attention. I found staff behavior poor. When answering the phone no one identified who they were. None of the 3 women I met after I arrived introduced herself. I saw no name tags. The reception desk person scanned my license without explaining or asking permission. With all the ID theft taking place nationwide that made me uncomfortable. The young woman who escorted us from the reception to the exam room addressed a lady that was there at the same time and I as "dear" and "girls."
After I waited in the exam room an unhappy looking woman introduced herself as the office manager and closed the door. She said she was sorry (she didn't appear sorry but rather in a hurry for me to leave). She went on to say that the doctor and her colleagues in the practice never meet people before they become patients, implying I should leave. She waited to make sure I left the exam room.
The Best Plastic Surgeon in Houston, TX Thank you so MUCH!!!!..., Jan 11, 2013
Thank You for so much of your time and care. . I am a thirty seven year old, professional woman and I feared of looking like a clown. Your reassurance and surgical touch made it worth it. You picked the excellent size and shape for my body structure, THANK YOU! You also got rid of that “12 year old” look I had. My breasts have never looked more natural, healthy and just down right pretty. You can’t imagine what that has done for my self-esteem. Thank you for being a wonderful surgeon and changing my life!
Extremely rude, arrogant and uncaring. I would not recommend her to anyone...., Dec 20, 2012
Dr. Kubica is not only rude and uncaring, she is very rough when doing exams. A complete physical with her lasts a couple minutes with her barely examining the patient and not knowing the patient's history at all even if you are have been a patient for years. She is cold and distant and will not listen to questions much less answer any questions. She walks out of the room while the patient is still talking and asking questions. I would not recommend her to anyone. She is completely uninterested in her patient and actually had the worst bedside manners I have every experienced. Very poor Doctor.
