I've been nervous to see a surgeon regarding my abdominal scar fearing they would push surgery. She was the most caring, patient, thoughtful, and knowledgeable surgeon I could have hoped to speak with. I have had nothing but positive experiences with my Baylor Scott & White Doctors. You all are wonderful and transforming the healthcare space.
