Services - Prickly Pear Family Medicine

Our Houston Health Services

Our goal is to enhance your overall wellness, not just treat your symptoms. That's why all of our memberships include comprehensive primary care.  Each patient gets long term preventative care and routine treatment for most common illnesses and conditions.

As part of our commitment to patient choice, we offer a variety of treatment plans to choose from that fit your lifestyle and health needs. Our wellness-on-demand services means you get access to your physician where-ever and when-ever you need it.

Wellness-on-demand means we go above the traditional telemedicine offerings.  At Prickly Pear Family Medicine, you are connected to your physician via email, text, phone or video conference 24/7 with no additional fees or hidden costs.

The benefits of being a member are not just limited to increased access to primary care, we minimize visits to the ER by handling minor injuries, some emergencies and guidance through the healthcare system.

Out of all our services, the most valuable is the patient-doctor relationships we cultivate. We believe that involving our patients more in their care not only improves health, but saves patient's money.

Treating Patients, the Way I Treat My Abuelita

As a kid, I saw firsthand how families struggled accessing healthcare and finding a bilingual doctor. I founded Prickly Pear Family Medicine because healthcare shouldn't be a privilege and everyone should have a doctor in the family.

As a doctor, only spending 10 minutes with a patient doesn't cut it.  That's not the way I practice medicine.  Patient visits at my clinic are always unrushed. I'm looking to earn your trust, not the blessing of an insurance company.
