San Augustine, Texas
San Augustine is considered the “cradle of Texas independence” for its role in the struggle for Texan independence. Once home to Sam Houston and several other leaders of the Republic, it is now a place of great natural beauty, architecture, and cultural beauty. This home of the first Texas university and first American settlement is located about 36 miles east of Nacogdoches near the Louisiana border and has a population of about 2,500. San Augustine is less than 20 minutes from both Toledo Bend and Sam Rayburn Reservoirs and between the Angelina National Forest and Sabine National Forest; it is a good area for fishing, boating, camping, hiking, cycling, and bird watching.
Our community faculty member has been teaching UTMB students for more than a decade, and is a patient, progressive physician who enjoys teaching and interacting with students. He has been in practice in San Augustine for 25 years, and his patients are mostly adults. He sees patients in the office, hospital, and nursing homes. While he generally sees the normal primary care problems, the physician is known for enjoying researching and identifying unusual problems, and so his patients bring them to him. Procedures done in the office include casting, skin cancer removal, suturing, large joint injections, and other common procedures. The hospital is located about a block from the office.
