Our Approach

We are a teaching clinical practice of CHRISTUS Spohn. Our resident physicians have completed four years of medical school and are completing a three year residency to become board-certified family physicians. A major aspect of residency training is taking care of patients in an office setting, which is under the supervision of experienced faculty physicians. Our care extends to the hospital setting, where we deliver babies and care for our patients requiring hospitalization. Therefore, our physicians may not be in the office every day. Although we strive to have you see your personal physician in certain situations, you may need to be seen by a covering physician.

All patient care is supervised by faculty physicians in the office and at CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital-Corpus Christi to ensure that you are receiving comprehensive and up-to-date care.

Our team includes:

  • Faculty Physicians
  • Clinical Psychologists
  • Resident Physicians
  • Medical Staff - MAs, CMAs, LVNs
