“My experience with the Physicians of TIPS has been nothing short of outstanding. Notonly have my patients enjoyed excellent direct care from the service, but I have alwaysfelt welcomed when I have sought advice from the Physicians regarding the managementof patients that I personally admit. I recommend and will continue to utilize this service.”
- Michael William Mann, M.D.
“I have had several patients covered and cared for by TIPS Physicians for over 5 years. Knowing I can have a Hospitalist follow my patients when I send them to the Emergency Room if they need admission allows me the Freedom to know that they can have excellent care.”
- Carmen T. Garza, M.D
"Hospitalist programs are here to stay, they do good work, are always available to families, and many studies have concluded that they shorten Hospital stay.”
