I\'ve been going to a Scott & White doctor and facility off/on for over 30 years and think very highly of HMO. This new Cedar Park clinic is very nice. I\'ve been seeing Dr. Patel for several years since my last doctor moved to Dallas area and I\'ve been very happy with Dr. Patel too. She always gives me her full attention and any fully diagnosed problems I\'ve had last few years (bouts of divriticulitis and recent symptom she thought might be due to thyroid issue which blood test collaborated) so I\'m very happy with her.
