Although stories about terrible docs boost TV ratings, the VAST majority of docs who have graduated from accredited institutions both possess the desire to help people over filling their pockets and training that goes beyond what most of the public can imagine. Dr. Davidow has had decades of experience on top of somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 years of formal medical training. He used to be a plastic surgeon but decided to take a massive reduction in pay to work as a GP. Did he do this because he is greedy or possibly because he actually cares about his patients?

$25 for office visits? Come on! That is dirt cheap. And how does this patient determine the visits are unnecessary? Also, a doc that has been practicing this long doesn't need a biopsy to tell if your kid has a cold or strep.

The best bet for your continued health is to find a doc that you respect on a personal level and then literally trust them with your life. That is their job, after all. Web-MD and the like are great patient-educational resources but only if the person using them has their brain working. Second-guessing a doc who is both trained and has your best interest at heart based on anything other than actual medical training is a recipe for disaster.

I had very good experiences of Dr. Davidow. He is very personable, spends a lot of time explaining to you the situation.

I don't know what the problem is with these other reviews. I am a fairly new patient to Dr. Joe Davidow, have only been seeing him for a couple years and have no problems or issues whatsoever. He always listens and provides feedback in detail. I have been able to make last minute appointments with no hesitation or problems and even have been able to "walk-in" on occassion a well. I am able to get prescription in 3 month increments, where my previous would require monthly visits. No greed here as mis-portrayed in the ealier posts. My daughter also sees Joe and believes he is an awesome doctor and she will see noone else. As far as the comment the doctor does not look healthy, not true, so he wears a hearing aid. I wear contacts, doesn't make me unfit. All this info is current as of July 2011. I have gotten diagnosis that was not what I wanted or expected but this wan't the doctors fault. Just telling it like it really is - keeping it real. The dude has over 40 years experience - need i say more...

I have taken my daughter to Dr. Davidow several times for various ailments. Ususally a cold or sore throat. He does spend time speaking with her and we have never felt rushed but I dont believe he is diagnosing her correctly. The only equipment I have seen in his office is a stethoscope. Its the same thing everytime we go in, he will listen to her chest and check her ears and throat and tell us that she has strep throat. He will send us on our way with antibiotics. I have never seen him do a throat culture or even mention it. His practice seems a bit outdated. She no longer see's him and I wouldnt recommend him to friends either.

GREEDY, GREEDY, GREEDY!
I was repeatedly forced to pay $25.00 for office visits that were NOT necessary. I can't imagine how much my Insurance has been billed just for blood work and ridiculous return visits for results that could have easily been given over the phone. It was painful to separate from them also. I had to go to the office in person and threaten legal action to have my records forwarded to my new doctor. RUN away from these people. The wife (Also a DR in the same office) treated me the same way!

Wouldnt recommend this doctor. Greedy. All positive reviews are probably from the lady who sits at the front desk. She was nice and helpful though. Doctor not so good. Kept calling me for repeated visits- charged my insurance big $$$. I got fedup and changed the MD. Didnt feel comfortable at all discussing things with him.

Disappointed with level of care. Dr. Davidow seemed to want to rack up doctor visits rather than help me as a patient. In addition, the doctor himself looks extremely unhealthy. I think this would fall under the same logic of "don't trust a skinny cook". Don't trust a doctor that looks sickly.

My father used to be one of Dr. Davidow's patients until he changed locations and it was no longer convenient for him so when I moved back to Houston and found Dr. Davidow listed on my insurance I started seeing him. Dr. Davidow is an outstanding doctor. He listens, he takes time with each patient, he cares about his patients personally, he is available, and he explains things in a way that is understandable and comfortable to you. I have never gotten such great care or attention from any other doctor. Dr. Davidow trusts his instincts in his diagnoses. Dr. Davidow is very careful not to over medicate his patients. Dr. Davidow is very intelligent. I could not give him higher recommendations.

PROS: Listens, Explains in a way you can understand, Caring, Smart, Kind
CONS: There can be long waits for your scheduled appointment

I have been going to Dr. Davidow for several years now. He is a great listener! He also thoroughly explains his diagnosis and treatment decisions. He even draws pictures to help explain what he is talking about. It never takes more than a few days to get in to see him. There is plenty of parking outside the building. Be careful, the office does not take credit or debit cards! Cash or check only! All in all, he's a great doctor who has earned my trust. Even though I live in Pearland, I continue to make the drive to see Dr. Davidow!

I see Allison Davidow and I think she is the most thorough general practioner I've ever seen. The practice is small, just her and her dad, and I never have a long wait and can always get in, usually on the same day I call. Dr. Allison Davidow spends time asking you questions and trying to make the best diagnosis. I highly recommend her. She is very caring and makes all her patients feel at ease.
