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.

We remarked after we left that Dr. Schwartz was thorough, caring, and patient at answering all our questions. I see another doctor at a different Baylor Scott&White clinic and the entire transaction is the exact opposite of this Thoracic clinic.

My appt was at 1:00 pm. The Dr walked in to the exam room at 2:00 pm. But I'm ok with it. Shows he doesn't rush patients in and out. He took the time to explain the procedure and stayed with me until I had no further questions. I like Dr Schwartz very much and so glad he is the provider for my upcoming procedure.
