About

Bio

Carlos E. Quezada M.D. OBSTETRICS & GYNECOLOGY Carlos Quezada is a Diplomate of the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology. Carlos is a San Antonio native, raised here since moving from Laredo, TX at age 4. He attended South San West Campus High School, attended college at Palo Alto College and graduated from the University of Texas San Antonio in 1995. He completed his medical school training at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio in 1999. His training continued under the U.S. Navy and completed his residency in OBGYN at the Naval Medical Center San Diego in California. He served 12 years abroad from the U.S, Europe and Japan. He has come home to take care of his extended family-South Texas. Carlos is board certified OBGYN and Fellow of the American Congress of Obstetrics & Gynecology. He is a member of the American College of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Texas Medical Association, Bexar County Medical Society and the Mexican American Hispanic Physicians Association. He is married to a devoted wife for 16 + years and has three wonderful and inspiring children. “My professional mission in life is to provide safe, caring modern medicine to the women of San Antonio and South Texas. The U.S. Navy has taught to me to be a great surgeon, being stationed overseas has taught me to be a proud Texan. I have been stationed overseas for 6 years and despite meeting a lot of interesting people and cultures, nothing beats being in San Antonio, especially the Mexican food. You don’t realize how wonderful, warm, compassionate the people of San Antonio and South Texas really are until you’ve been everywhere else. I want to bring all my knowledge and dedication to helping women find or maintain health and happiness. Whether from modest or luxurious backgrounds, I want each patient to feel special and respected. Nothing would satisfy me more than providing care back to the part of San Antonio where I grew up in.
