"Choosing Waco FHC for residency is one of the best decisions I have ever made. It prepared me well for private practice by giving me a large variety of clinical experiences and providing an appropriate amount of autonomy & clinical guidance with world-class faculty. FHC taught me how to be a wise, diligent & compassionate physician. FHC will always be family."
