Specialties

Dr. Walter J Bridges has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Wonderful doc, nurse has no communication and social skill.

I love Dr. Bridges, I however do not care for his nurse-Angela. She will be the reason we do not continue care with this doctor. After telling others my experience with her, I've learned many people take issue with her. An LVN that's clearly 'burned out' is not worth a wonderful doc in my opinion. We will continue to go to specialists in Lubbock where the nurse is fresh, excited about helping others, and concerned about patients and has friendly and genuine interactions with patients. TTHSC needs to re-evaluate a nurse that is not welcoming, gives wrong info, and is outright rude. As a nurse as well, and also a former counselor, I can be thankful I don't have the reputation she does in the community. A career of causing parents stress in already stressful situations is a sad career. Last time I checked myself and my colleagues, nurses were about love, kindness, helping. Not the case apparently at this office and I should've asked more parents before even having interactions with her and we would not have never contacted Dr. Bridges' office.
