Stephen Rydzak, MD, FACP, CWSP is a board-certified internal medicine physician who has many specialties. He is an internist, a diving medical physician and medical director of the UT Health East Texas Wound Healing Center.

"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."
