Bio

Greetings! My name is Dr. Edgardo Ordonez. I'm currently a practicing Emergency and Internal Medicine physician in the state of Texas. I recently moved here after having completed my medical training in the northeast. I have expertise in handling both acute and chronic medical conditions and I look forward to continued service to the patient community.
