"Very happy"

I was in Richardson for nearly six months of 2013. From getting there to leaving I was very well treated. My care by the nursing staff was as good as it gets. The doctors barring two have no bedside manner and had very little feeling toward me. I have to say that the nurse's made up for this, they seem to know which doctors to follow around to then add comfort. The hospital as a whole is second to none. No where is perfect but barring three doctors Richardson would be nearly there.
