I've never had such an incredible experience at a primary care provider as I have here at Scott & White. From having my temperature checked at the front to the receptionist, to the nurse, and then to Dr. Hernandez. Everyone was so friendly and they seemed like they love their job. Which takes the ease out of 'going to the doctor'. I was treated with respect and Dr. Hernandez addressed every concern I had without question. On top of everything, the clinic is super clean and I felt safe. I feel so grateful to have found Dr. Hernandez & Scott & White.

For me, coming to BS&W has simplified all aspects of my care, everything is in one place from my records to labs and radiology and the processes are streamlined, and the focus is always on providing excellent customer service along with the best medical care to the patient.

Dr Hernandez is a very caring physician. she listens and gives feedback and together we were able to make sure I am on the right path with my health. I have three months to make the agreed upon changes to improve my health and I felt empowered to succeed in the goals agreed upon. She is also a doctor for my husband and we both are more than pleased with our new care provider. We are new to the state and have no doubt we will be cared for the rest of our lives living in TX.
