Rating Feedback for Dr. Cordoba (2577650)

The rating:
'It is with great sadness that I write this review. Please note this my opinion and is based on my experience. Dr. Cordoba is a nice person, but in my opinion, treated me with incompetence. He could never remember what medication he prescribed to me, he failed to follow up on medical conditions I have, and I believe he over-medicated me on multiple benzos. I have been advised by two other psychiatrists that I was over-medicated. As a result, I have been a zombie for a long time. I am just now getting my life back. I would never recommend anyone to Dr. Cordoba. Seeing him is one of the greatest regrets of my life.'

In my opinion, Dr. Cordoba is NOT incompetent. His knowledge of medications and their usage is unsurpassed. He would never over-medicate; on the contrary, he is very cautious about the types of medications he prescribes. Dr. Cordoba saved my life 4 years ago and I will continue to see him for all my medical needs as long as he is here in Austin. He is a wonderful, caring, doctor and I am really surprised to see the above rating. It is so not true for me, personally.

Sorry that happened to you.

Sorry that happened to you. I've been a mental health patient for a very long time and I can tell you from experience that on new meds you have to stay in constant contact with your professional. With benzos if you feel overly medicated perhaps stop taking them until you talk with the doctor? Not sure it is fair to blame just him. Psychiatry is defiantly not something that is pinpoint accurate. I know he has always followed up with me and adjusted any medications appropriately. Regardless, best wishes to you and here is to getting well.

I ave been a patient of Dr.

Star I ave been a patient of Dr. Cordoba for 10 yrs. Because of my major depression he had to change
medications and the combinations, numerous times and frequently. When I called about a new medication he immediately, removed or changed the medication, I have never been overly medicated due to his presciptions. He is extremely knowledgeable of medications and their effects. IfI explained my symptoms he always knew which medication was responsible and made the necessary changes.

There were numerous times that due to my extreme depression, that he had to use his professional
judgement because I could not think appropriately, or express my symptoms.

I am sorry this happened to

I am sorry this happened to you. I have been a patient of Dr. Cordoba for over 20 years and I have never had a bad experience with him, in fact he has been the only doctor that I trust. He is up to date on medications and have helped me to find the medications that work for me. Dr. Cordoba has always been professional and always has known what medications that I am taking. As part of my treatment he always asks what are my symptoms are from my last visit, not just how I am feeling the day of my appointment. Dr. Cordoba has truly saved my life with his knowledge and care. Dr. Cordoba has been careful in prescribing all of the medication that were given to me. I was shocked to see this comment about Dr. Cordoba and would recommend him to everyone because of my 20 year experience.

Seeing Dr. Cordoba is the

Seeing Dr. Cordoba is the best thing I've done in my life. I'm sorry you had a bad experience but I have to believe that with all the positive ones that the negative one shouldn't be given any attention. Too many times we are quick to complain and forget to compliment. Dr. Cordoba is one of the best doctors in Texas! He came highly recommended to me by two other well-known and highly respected Austin doctors.
