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.

This visit was exceptional. Checkin was fast and smooth, checkout was the same (hasn't been in the past). The MA, which is the first time is saw her, was very nice, personable, and professional. And of course my Dr. McDonough was outstanding. As always. Best Doctor Ever.

Dr. McDonough is a kind, caring, attentive physician. That is why I tolerate a 45-minute wait to get in to see her. There are but a very few doctors who are worth waiting for that way. Because she cares so much for her patients, please help her to solve the time problem by allotting more time for her patients by spacing their appointments further apart.

Dr McDonough really cares about my health and what happens to me. She takes everything seriously and cares about what I say. She's always willing to answer questions and discuss any concerns I have. Considering what I went through with my last rheumatologist (he wasn't with BaylorScott&White) I'm very lucky I was able to get in with Dr McDonough. I highly recommend her to anyone needing a rheumatologist.
