"Having grown up in East Texas, it has been very special for me to return to this community as a physician and have the opportunity to take care of the people in this region. I've seen a lot of changes in medicine in Tyler over the years, but I never cease to be amazed by the compassion, kindness and work ethic that I see in this medical community. I feel privileged to be part of that culture."
Board certified in both internal and hyperbaric medicine, Dr. Rydzak brings a unique perspective to his practice. "Hyperbaric medicine is used to treat a number of things, including non-healing wounds. I can offer something to my patients that's not available anywhere else in the area."

Quality of care is important to Dr. Rydzak. I have been a patient for a long time, about 25 years. During those years, he displayed compassion, he listened to my needs, he diagnosed problems accurately, and he spent whatever time was needed to accomplish those things.

Dr. Rydzak has been my doctor for a little over 6 years. He has always spent an adequate amount of time with me and listened to what I had to say. He always gave me good advice and made sure that I understood and was in agreement with his treatment plan. I have always trusted his care and decisions.
