About

Bio

I am a specialist in Newborn infants (Neonatologist). I have been caring for sick newborn infants for the past 35 years. I consult with High-Risk OB's (Maternal-Fetal-Medicine specialists) all the time. We plan in advance as much as possible to give the infant the best chance. Sometimes that is not always possible and we do the best that we can under the circumstances. I am a Professor Emeritus at Texas Tech University School of Medicine in El Paso where I taught Neonatology for 32 years. I recently worked at William Beaumont Army Medical Center as Chief of Neonatology running their Level II Special Care Unit. While I do not have an established office, I am now the Director of High Risk Clinic at Providence Memorial Hospital Children's hospital in El Paso Texas. We see NICU graduates.
