“We had the best customer service experience at Neighbors. Our 2-year-old son Wesley woke up at 6AM with a fever of 102°, coughing and just not acting himself. We took Wesley to Neighbors Emergency Center Odessa and they were so nice and helpful from the moment we got there. My arm is in a splint so the Administrative Assistant that greeted us was very helpful and accommodating. She asked me questions at our check-in and filled out the forms for me. The Medical Technician Tabby was super sweet and gentle with our little guy. Manny was our nurse and he was awesome! He had to swab Wesley for the flu, and of course, Wesley was very upset with him. Wesley kept telling him “No, go away!” but Manny was patient. Manny returned with a Neighbors football for Wesley. How did he know Wesley loves football? After the swab, Manny gave the football and a high five to Wesley. Lab results came back fast and the doctor confirmed Wesley had Type A Flu. We were in and out in a total of 30 minutes. Hopefully we won’t need ER care again, but if we do, Neighbors Emergency Center Odessa is where we will go.”

"I feel Neighbors saved my life because they treated the whole person. I would bypass every other freestanding ER out there to get to a Neighbors. It was truly a great experience. I’m an active 64-year-old realtor in Missouri City, Texas, and had been feeling ill. I visited a competitor’s freestanding emergency center where I was diagnosed with pneumonia. Still not feeling better three days later, my daughter suggested I visit Neighbors Emergency Center Pearland for a second opinion. I was impressed with Neighbors from the moment I entered. The exam room was spacious, calm, and prepared with all the equipment I would see in a hospital-based ER. I was treated by a board-certified physician that asked all the right questions that weren’t asked at the competitor. I was exhausted from the several days of experiencing difficulty breathing. The Neighbors doctor had X-rays done and bloodwork performed. By the time I was discharged, I had been prescribed medication for my severe congestion and left with all of my X-rays and lab results so I could follow-up with my primary care physician. Knowledgeable, efficient and effective. That’s what Neighbors Emergency Center Pearland is all about."

"Wow! I could not believe how attentive and helpful the staff was. No waiting. I was in and out in less than an hour. My back is feeling 100% better after receiving a steroid shot which was the best option for me. The doctor provided me with a couple of options and next steps if back pain persists over the next couple of weeks. Welcome to the neighborhood!"
— J.R.
"The nurses and doctors that cared for me were so nice and made me feel like a person, not a number. My situation could have quickly developed into something more serious, but thanks to the fast care I received at Neighbors, it was taken care of much more quickly."

"Thank you for the professional, prompt, and expert care you provided our daughter with at the Bellaire center a couple of weeks back. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by helpful nurses and staff who were genuinely concerned about our daughter’s health. We were not sure if our issue was an actual emergency or not, so I appreciated the staff telling us that they would not run unnecessary tests and poke and prod unless they felt it was required. This eased my mind and immediately created trust. It took less than 10 minutes from the moment we walked in to be seen by Dr. Patel. He was thorough in his line of questioning to try and get to the root of the issue, and then provided detailed explanations to my husband and I about what was going on with our daughter. I felt that he was able to make a confident diagnosis and then he followed up by performing some simple tests to confirm his assessment. All in all, he provided us with excellent care which I am very appreciative of. This was our first time at an emergency care center, and I walked in unsure about the level of care we would receive. I left the center thoroughly impressed by the technology that is available if needed, the experience level of the staff, and the facility itself. My daughter was in a kid-friendly room where she was surrounded by Disney characters and a TV to keep her distracted. In fact, she has asked to go back to the doctor several times in the last week! Thank you to the entire staff, especially Winnie our nurse and Dr. Patel, for being so kind and caring! If ever faced with an emergency in the future, this is the place I will go."

Word of mouth speaks volumes and because of your excellent facility, staff, and healthcare, I will be singing your praises throughout our wonderful community in Kingwood."

"Everyone who treated me was so understanding and informative. I had never had a CT scan before and I was a little scared because I didn’t know what to expect. My doctor took the time to explain everything beforehand, putting my mind at ease."
— Kate Stockton
"It was nice to see a doctor in such a timely manner. My oldest son dislocated his shoulder playing football, an injury that would have had us waiting for hours in a standard emergency room. At NEC, it was a matter of minutes before we were seen."
