I would like to take a break from this challenging time and give you a gentle reminder to fill up and submit your 2020Census questionnaire sent to you by US Census Bureau. Your response will make our community better! Every one matters!!
Unbelievably bad care from Dr Tario Mallick, at the AUBREY location I went in for severe lower back pain and 2 days later nothing helps and I keep calling asking for something to help with the pain so I can at least get out of bed!!and they tell me to take a hot shower! I didn’t even get any relief while I was in the office. I spent $1,200.00 for zero care. Left a message for the manager to call me, I realize they have to be careful with pain meds, but this is horrible and I don’t abuse them. The last time I had anything resembling a narcotic was when I crashed cycling last October and broke my nose in 2 places and fractured my face!
My son, Emery, was inspired to send a Thank You note to all the doctors and nurses. Baylor Scott & White Health

Last October, my wife had a single visit to our family doctor at BSW Northside Temple. The clinic submitted double bills with different codes to Blue Cross, and said she owes two $30 copays. We have written, had two separate joint telephone conferences with BSW and Blue Cross, who says BSW is violating its contractual agreement. Yet, BSW will not fix it. They just sent another notice that says they will report the $30 to collections, while Blue Cross says do not pay it. What is wrong with BSW that they cannot bill correctly and then harass people for something they do not owe?
Please fill and submit your 2020census questionnaire sent by US Census Bureau in your mail! Your response can help our community get better!! Every count matters!!!
Baylor Scott and White is no longer accepting Humana Advantage Plans in it's rural hospitals. This doesn't sound like stronger together to me, but penalizes residents in rural Texas
So my wife is a caregiver for elderly people and she has symptoms that could be COVID-19 so we filled out the screening on the mybswhealth website and that took us to the evisit stuff. We filled out that information and got results. We kind of need the information that was included in those results for the testing for COVID-19, but we can't get back to them. We have called multiple times and keep getting sent to the evisit support but have to call dozens of times before I get something other than "the subscriber you called is not in service" and when I do get something else I end up on hold for 45 minutes before the line goes dead. This has been for more than a day of trying to get this information and have gotten nowhere. This is kind of a critical situation as the people my wife has cared for are definitely high risk and should know as soon as possible.
I did the online corvid 19 questionnaire today and got an e-mail saying it's ready for me to review but can not find out how to do that.
Thank you for listening to me today and treating me like a person!! The entire staff from the ER to CT were wonderful!
I'd suggest that BSW should look at the partnership with Dallas Morning News and Covid19. The paper suggests that they provide FREE to the public the latest information for public safety.... they do if you give them your email. Then they send subscription offers and coupons. This is not free.

Finally, today the home page says in a headline "Your most frequently asked questions." But you can only see it by signing into an account. Is this what you are paying to help DFW be safe?

A father’s love motivated Jim to heal his heart. After having difficulty finishing a tennis match, experiencing shortness of breath and falling asleep at work, Jim went to see a doctor. To his shock, he learned he had coronary artery disease with five blockages in his heart. He needed bypass surgery.

With just a month until his only daughter’s wedding, Jim wanted to wait, but he knew before caring for his daughter’s heart, he had to care for his own.

At Baylor Scott & White Heart and Vascular Hospital – Dallas, Jim had quintuple bypass surgery to restore blood flow to the heart muscle. He was determined to not let heart disease or this surgery slow him down. Nothing would keep him from walking his daughter down the aisle. During his recovery, he made it his goal to walk as much as he could, using motivational music to give him that extra push.

With his health back on track, Jim had one last milestone to accomplish—he walked arm-in-arm with his daughter on her wedding day.

Wishing all the dads out there a happy Father’s Day as we celebrate all you do for those you love!
