Self-verified patient of Dr. Jenifer R Donnell Kowalik - Posted on December 29th, 2017
I am advanced maternal age with diabetes and other risk factors. Dr Kowalik has the highest standard of care I have ever experienced! I like her to the point manner and had a fantastic experience in my delivery. My baby was over 9 lbs and her patience and care enabled me to deliver with no tearing or episiotomy.

This is my first child and I did not feel like a patient. I felt like I was just another appointment on her list to check off. The wait to actually see the doctor was ridiculous! And when I finally got back to the room I had to wait an extra 20 minutes even though I had an 8:30am appointment and I was the only one in the entire office! When she came into the room she was not welcoming and was very routine with me. I probably only spent 30 minutes tops with the actual doctor and I was in the office for almost 2 hours! At checkout the ladies at the front desk were just as cold as the doctor. The front desk lady just scheduled me an appointment without asking when I would be available next and when I asked for another time and day she replied with "that's what we got take it or leave it". Honestly I ended up changing my doctor.
Needs to be investigated by the State

Unprofessional and unethical staff. Absolutely the worst customer service for a physicians office that I have ever seen. Potential HIPAA violations as the staff openly discusses treatment, codes and patient issues that can be heard from the patient rooms and the lobby. The physician has zero capability or capacity for empathy and care. She lacks the basic overall knowledge to treat various illnesses as a physician board certified in Family Practice and a specialty in OB. This does not include the billing issues and wrong claims, coding and various other insurance/billing issues we've experienced. I could go on but I will leave it to the professionals in the State of Texas to review and identify all of the various issues with the facility, staff and physician.

Although this was the only office in san marcos that i found took traditional medicaid they would not schedule my appointment until dr kowalik looked over my records from ctmc because i had recently gone there for spotting which i thought was odd i hv never had this much trouble scheduling an appointment. I let the lady at the front know i needed to get in asap because of the problems i was having and because ive had a miscarriage before but tht didnt help a whole day later and still no call from them so now going to my visit in seguin where they scheduled me right away. Oh and the front desk very messy ghetto if you will papers thrown everywhere not very inviting!

Let me begin by saying that I've worked in the medical field for the last 9 years. This is a customer service based industry just like any other. Dr. Kowalik, her office staff, tech and nurses should be truly ashamed of the quality of care they provide. It is the most unprofessional group of people I've ever encountered. From the personal phone calls by front desk staff (which you can clearly hear from the waiting room), to the disgustingly unfriendly lab tech (I completely agree with the other reviewer about her lack of compassion), to the judgemental Dr. Kowalik. As we explained why we were there to see her she made it very clear that she didn't have the time to listen. She rushed us through by claiming she would make an appointment on our behalf with a specialist. The appointment was never made. We promptly changed doctors and were told that there was NEVER a need for a specialist. It terrified me that a "Doctor" would put this fear into the hearts of a pair of first time parents who were being told our baby had " a failure to thrive". Our child is fine and didn't need ANY additional testing. Turns out we just needed a new competent Doctor. Please avoid this office...especially if you have a child!
Very rude staff

I went here for my first baby. We found out we had lost her at our 16 week check-up. The doctor is very sweet and helpful. I am pregnant again and am going to her office again. I hate the staff, they are so rude. Last time they forgot to tell me about an appointment they had made for me, didn't fax papers to another office they sent me to, we had to wait almost 3 hrs for them to do it and one of the nurses laughed when I told her I had been super sick for a while now, had not been able to eat for 2 days because I kept throwing up and had lost weight. She basically said it was normal and to suck it up. She gave me no recommendations of what to eat or take. The only reason why I keep going is because I really like the doctor. But I am considering changing.

Keisha Lang the Medical assistant is rude and insensitive to the needs of the patients and referred to them as Uneducate low income medicaide patients. and she curses all the time. her bedside manner is horrible. and I dont understand why a doctor would want someone like that working for them.

I usually have to wait about an hour for other specialists. I see Dr K for my pregnancy. I am high risk due to diabetes and previous failed pregnancies. Dr K was very thorough in finding out my history and explained in detail the risk of my pregnancy with diabetes. She told me straight up that if I did not control my sugars I would put my baby at risk. She monitored me closely and we have finally been able to have a healthy successful pregnancy.
Don't believe all the negative

So for all the negative reviews below...I just left Dr. Kowalik's office and was totally 100% pleased. I was about 15 minutes early for my appointment and only had to wait about 7 minutes before being called back. Once in the room my vitals were taken and the nurse was nice. Dr. Kowalik came in within 5 minutes or so and easily spent about 10 minutes with me going over why my BP was up. Very nice and easy to talk to. The nurse that took my blood for a test was amazing...I always have a hard time giving blood but she took her time and only had to poke me once. Checkout was easy and fast. They only person I encountered that seemed unhappy was the lady that checked me in...but then again I have never seen her smile. Give Dr. Kowalik a try....I know you will like her!!!

After a thirty-minute wait in the lobby I was finally called back for my Essure consult. Took another twenty minutes for Kowalik to actually get in the exam room because they FORGOT I WAS THERE. During the consultation, Kowalik repeatedly injected her unwanted personal opinion into my medical decisions, forcing me to conclude that she is neither professional nor ethical enough not to "accidentally" botch my procedure. I am currently seeing an ACTUAL gynecologist for my Essure procedure and have declared a new PCP with my insurance. I will NEVER go back to Kowalik. She is a poor doctor and a judgmental person.
