Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

Kristen was amazing. I am a diabetic and had to reestablish a provider at Baylor Scott and White. What a blessing it was to have my appointment with Kristin. I feel like I'm going to be in extraordinary hands with Kristen. She was a tentative to listening to all of my concerns. She truly seem to care about my healthcare moving forward and was very strategic about establishing a plan for me to work to improve with my diabetes. This is the first time that I'm actually very excited about my primary care provider.

First time establishing care with a new practitioner in seven years, and all I gotta say is I wish I switched sooner. Kristen actually sat down and listened to me without any time restraint. It was nice to be treated like a person rather than a task compared to my last healthcare system. I really appreciate Kristen and the staff's time and energy into my care. Thank you!
