I like Dr. Townsend. Very knowledgeable, and explains my condition and treatment. But, he seems rushed and when he's ready to end the visit, he walks toward the door, his way of letting me know the visit is over, and opens it. Weather I'm ready, or not. I never get asked if I have any more questions or concerns. He does this at every visit. I'm considering another doctor.

Dr. T is one of the good ones. My wife knows I hate going to see the doctor, but I don't mind seeing Dr. T. He does not seem like he is in a hurry to rush me out the door, thus I don't feel like I am in a herd of cattle.

During this time of staying alone for days, I started getting panic attacks. I was afraid of my health, no one to talk to, and trying to eat a decent meal. Finialy I emailed and said what the problem was. Dr. Townsend took the time to see me, asked questions, made positive ideas and I FELT so much better. I know he was busy, and yet he took the time to talk to me. I felt like trying to eat more and different things.

Dr Townsend is by far the best provider I have had through the years. i have been a patient at Baylor for over 25 years! When I say he is the best ever, I do have a reason for my praise. He managed my care for this period of my medical needs with the utmost professionalism and assurance for my peace. i was dreading surgery for something he detected about 3 years ago. He also communicates using all of the tools that work best for his patient during a virus pandemic that has been an additional burden on our health care system staff, and I especially thank Dr Townsend for my care!
