COMMUNITY DESCRIPTION

Pearsall, Texas, the county seat of Frio County, is located along Interstate Highway 35 and the Missouri Pacific Railroad fifty-four miles south of San Antonio in the central part of the county.

Nestled in the rolling plains south of San Antonio, Pearsall was the prehistoric home of a band of Coahuitecans known as the Pachal. These hunter-gatherers left us few archeological remains of their harsh subsistence lifestyle. There were several artesian wells in the area, one of which was located at the present-day Moreno Park and later became the first permanent habitation. Meanwhile, at crossing on the Frio River later to become Frio Town gave access to this area. It brought the French explorer La Salle in 1685, the Camino Real (The King’s Highway) of Spanish Texas in 1691, and in 1731 the Canary Islanders on their way to San Antonio.

Patient Care Is Our Priority

Medical organizations throughout North America understand that our rigorous certification standards prove that ABPS Diplomates are capable of delivering the best patient care possible.

I feel truly blessed and grateful to be an internal medicine board-certified diplomate with the American Board of Physician Specialties. Their ongoing, steadfast commitment to physician board(s) enhancement, forward focused vision, and tenacity is second to none. ABPS has become a recognized choice in Physician Board Certification.

To be the best, you must measure yourself against the best. Achieving Board Certification in Emergency Medicine by the ABPS gave me the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of the art of EM in an objective way. The high bar that ABPS sets for candidates to be allowed to take both the written and oral exam is a testament to ABPS's rigorous vetting of one's ability to practice Emergency Medicine at a high level. By maintaining these credentials, I've been able to instill confidence in my abilities at the department/employer level and ultimately with the patients that choose to seek emergency care at the facilities at which I practice.

The American Board of Physician Specialties has supported the entire field of Integrative Medicine in sponsoring our board. It has been so validating of the importance of prevention-oriented and holistic approaches to care while emphasizing the scientific basis of this specialty to have it recognized by ABPS. I am proud to have been one of the first groups to be board certified by ABPS in Integrative Medicine, leading the way for others committed to training in this specialty.
