He told me what I had expected, he was honest with me, in which made me feel good about being there. He used a soft voice when talking to me and therefore didn't make me feel so dumb. He's a keeper.

Dr. King, the entire staff, and are friendly, knowledgeable and obviously care for their patients. This isn't an easy combination to find. The staff at the front entrance were friendly and explained the necessity for the protocols. The check-in is always easy and quick - the E-check In is a valuable time saver for patient and staff. Baylor Scott and White are a model which other hospitals and care facilities would do well to imitate. I know I sound like a gushing fangirl, but y'all ROCK!

Dr. King was very knowledgeable about my situation and gave me indepth descriptions of what was going to happen. During evaluation, he and his staff were very gentle and careful not to cause me any discomfort or pain. I am very happy with the care I received and if it is any indication of the upcoming surgical procedure I have coming, then I have no doubt that I am in very good hands. If possible, please share this with Dr. King and his staff and extend my deep gratitude and thanks.
