TESTIMONIALS

I am in general happy getting my medical care at Padilla Clinic. My experience has been very pleasant in all aspects. There are always things we may not like at certain point, of course. I’m a person who always look at the big picture. Looking at that, Padilla Clinic does a great job for our Community. Thanks you all at Padilla Clinic for the good care.!

INFORMATION

ABOUT PULSE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM EAST DOWNTOWN 

Dr. Guillermo Padilla founded his East Downtown Clinic location @ 2502 Canal St in 1959 after he fell in love with the location.  He established the office and worked there with his son Dr. William Padilla and his Daughter (a Pharmacist), who eventually opened the Canal Street Pharmacy on location.  The Clinic was expanded over the years and has been a center for wellness for many generations of families in the East Downtown area.  The Clinic is situated one block from the METRORail in the East End District and several bus routes for those who enjoy utilizing the various transit systems.  This historic location is within 5 min from Minute Maid Park, Toyota Center, BBVA Stadium, The Original Ninfa’s, East End Farmers Market, and Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church.  Pulse / Padilla clinic accepts most insurance plans but has a wonderful cash pay option for those not currently in a plan.  Most of the Staff and Providers speak Spanish for those who feel more comfortable communicating that way.  You will find staff who really love where they work, many of whom call EaDo home.  Pulse Healthcare System has added new modalities of care and access to Multi-Specialty Doctors to bring even more services to the community.  We hope you will agree that heritage like this is something extraordinary.  This Clinic is open every day of the week and accepts walk-in.  We desire to see your entire family for all your medical needs.  Welcome to Pulse / Padilla Clinic EaDo.
