About

Bio

I grew up in a small town in west Texas. I decided to go into medicine when I was a teenager due to a family member with cancer that I was helping care for. I feel that I have one of the best jobs in medicine. I'm able to meet people from all aspects of life. I treat them and their family members. I'm able to treat a large spectrum of illnesses.

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.

This was very helpful. Thanks! Thank you very much. A part of my issue is my primary doc is hesitant in general. It just doesn't seem worth the hassle. Thanks.
