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.

I have had the Blessing of this provider for years now. I can't begin to express the ease and comfort I feel under her care. I for once DO NOT feel like a farm animal just being put through the chute with the rest of the cattle Finally someone that brings back the family doctor values and principles. We are so caught up in making the dollar we forget that patients are human! Ms McGrade is why we still use Scott and White! God Bless and please don't run her off, she cares tremendously for her patients

The doctor was very nice told us what was wrong answered all my questions and allowed me to get my child better with medication. Otherwise she may have gotten worse and being able to find out what was wrong with my little in a short time was ideal so I could bring her home to rest without sitting at the hospital for hours like I normally have to do.
