PA Garza and staff were awesome! I am new to Texas and new to BSW. Everyone was exceptional from when I checked in, then to the X-rays, the nurse who did my vitals, and then PA Garza.To add more, I sent PA Garza an email about the status of when I would be receiving the images from my old medical provider, the nurse responded within a very short time as well as PA Garza! Now that is great patient care and great follow through. Thank you for a great experience.
