Have been a patient at Scott & White and now Baylor Scott and White since the clinic was built on University Drive. Dr. Wade Richardson has been my doctor since 1997. Couldn't ask for any better care from the facility, any doctor's I've been to at S&W and BS&W nor from Dr. Wade Richardson!! Most of my family living here in B/CS go to BS&W. The rest do except for when they have to go out of town to specialists.

Over 20+ years I have received professional, compassionate, exemplary care with Dr Richardson. He has gentle hands and a gentle heart and I have a feeling of comfort with him and nurse Rachael. I don't go often, but each visit provides the answers that I need to confront health issues and move forward. I particularly remember a visit 2+ years past when I was very concerned about a bulge in my lower abdomen. In moments Dr. Richardson had me at ease by identifying the hernia and explaining the options for fixing the problem. An appointment with the surgeon, followed by surgery, soon had me completely recovered. Great work by all!
