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.

Dr. Bass is always willing to discuss whatever questions or concerns I may have. For instance, My daughter had sent me an email concerning family medical history. I forwarded this to Dr. Bass and she had not only read it, but was ready to discuss it. She ordered the necessary tests and made a referral to the appropriate doctor.

I have used dr Bass as my PCP since we moved to Texas and she is amazing. This is also the ONLY medical person I see for any member of my family that is very good about being on time and making me feel like my time is also valued. Every other doctor seems to have endless waits and delays and I have NEVER experienced this with Dr Bass and staff. So a big THANK YOU for that!
