About

Bio

I attended medical school at Texas Tech University split between Lubbock, TX for 2 years and El Paso for the last 2 years. It was a great experience. I later returned to Houston to finish residency training in Internal medicine. I'm in a small practice with a family medicine doctor and currently see patients in the hospital and in an office setting. I like to accommodate patients who are trying to reduce the amount of medications they are on. I explain to patients that I am like a general contractor and use subspecialists like subcontractors to help them in their health issues.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
