Board-certified family medicine physician Dr. Eleazar Vera Jr. feels the responsibility of being a family doctor: “I consider it an honor to take care of my patients. They’re putting their lives in my hands, and I don’t want to ever let them down.”
After practicing in Lindale for 11 years, he looks forward to caring for patients at ETMC First Physicians Clinic in Lindale with Anthony Davis, MD.
“I would not want to practice any place other than Lindale,” he said. “My patients are here. 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 traces his interest in medicine to his teen years, when he grew to admire a physician who treated his grandmother’s cancer. “I try to treat patients the way I would want my family treated, and I think if you do that, it all works out.”
