“I consider it an honor to take care of my patients. They’re putting their lives in my hands and I don’t ever want to let them down,” said board-certified family medicine physician Dr. Eleazar Vera Jr.
He has been caring for patients in Lindale for much of his career. “I would not want to practice in any other place. I know the families here. I’ve helped them through many medical problems in the past and hope to continue to help them in the future.”
Dr. Vera became interested in medicine in his teen years, when he grew to admire the physician who treated his grandmother’s cancer. “I try to treat patients the way I would want my family treated. I think if you do that, it all works out.”
