He was very thorough when explaining results of testing so that I understood everything. Which I appreciate very much. On another note: The front desk nurses were the friendliest and most helpful staff I've encountered at Baylor Scott & White; I hope they are recognized for their dedication to Customer Service and Respect towards your patients. Thank You.
