Any time you’re new in town, you have a whole laundry list of chores to tackle, including finding a new gym, plotting the quickest route to work, and looking for a grocery store near home. But one of the most important tasks on your to-do list when you’re moving to Galleria, Houston should be finding a team of doctors and health professionals that you trust. Even if you’re all up to date on annual exams, it’s always smart to have medical experts on call in case of emergency. Here’s a list of the best doctors, dentists, optometrists, and other health practitioners in Galleria, Houston, at least according to reviews by their current patients.
Where to Go for Your Yearly Checkup
Now that you’re a resident of a major metropolis, one that’s home to many hospitals, you really have your pick of the litter when it comes to general practitioners. But one of the most popular primary care doctors in your neighborhood is Dr. Camille Goff, MD. She has a 4.5-star average on Yelp and a 4-star average on Health Grades, with many customers citing her bedside manner and obvious expertise as the main reasons they entrust her with their health. They also appreciate the friendliness and efficiency of the office staff. Dr. Goff practices as a general family doctor, but specializes in sports medicine, so athletes have extra incentive to schedule a visit with her.
Where to Get Your Teeth Cleaned
Even adults usually have to cope with a certain level of anxiety leading up to a dentist appointment, but the seasoned pros at Briargrove Smiles Dentistry will likely ease your nerves, at least a little bit. Of more than 30 Yelp reviews, there are only a handful that rate Briargrove Smiles any lower than 5 stars (and most of these are still 4-star reviews). Patients gush about the friendliness and professionalism of the staff and dentists, the affordable services (even sans insurance), and the cutting-edge technology. You can even watch TV while your hygienist works, making it easy to ignore any potentially unpleasant procedures happening in your mouth.
Where to Schedule an Eye Exam
You might not expect to find a skilled, highly educated optometrist at an eyewear store, especially a chain, but Dr. Ehsia Wang of Today’s Vision Tanglewood is basically rolling in rave reviews. Not only is she professional and intelligent, but her and her team are also well versed in the ways of insurance. So they’ll make sure you get the best price on your exam and a pair of prescription lenses—unlike other eyewear stores, which may just try to unload the most expensive pair of glasses on you. And since Dr. Wang practices right out of Today’s Vision, you can order a pair of prescription lenses as soon as she’s finished assessing your peepers.
Where to Naturally Combat Aches and Pains
It’s not every day that you find a chiropractic doctor who also has a background in healing drumming, a 4th-degree black belt in Tang Soo Do Karate, and an actual degree in leadership. But Dr. Jackie St.Cyr does. She helms Innate Chiropractic Healing Arts Center, a holistic health practice near Galleria. Along with traditional chiropractic services, Dr. Jackie and her team use massage therapy, nutritional counseling, body-breath integration, and other alternative forms of healing to tackle health issues naturally, working from the inside out.
