Maureen Gutierrez, MD, Opens New Private Practice in Dallas
Gutierrez is now accepting patients at her internal medicine practice open Aug. 1

DALLAS – Aug. 14, 2012 –Dallas-based internal medicine physician, Maureen Gutierrez, MD, opened her new internal medicine practice on Aug. 1 and is now seeing both new and current patients. The Dallas Comprehensive Medical Care office is located at 8220 Walnut Hill Lane, PPB II Suite 314 in Dallas. Gutierrez brings five years of experience at Harvill-Tschumy Internal Medicine Clinic to her new endeavor while remaining part of the medical staff at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.

“I am very excited to explore an innovative side of medicine through a practice that uses modern amenities such as the Internet and social networking to connect with my patients and provide great healthcare,” said Gutierrez.

Gutierrez began her medical career at the University of Virginia where she completed her pre-medical training and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry in 1997. After teaching math and science in Houston, Texas, for three years, she continued her studies at the University of Texas at Houston where she received her medical degree in 2004. Gutierrez spent the next four years in specialty training and residency in internal medicine at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C., where she was appointed chief resident and served one year as an instructor to internal medicine trainees. Now she is a board certified internist through the American Board of Internal Medicine with her own private practice.

In addition to attending medical school, Gutierrez was involved with Teach for America, HISD (Houston Independent School District) and KIPP Academy. “From these experiences I learned that first and foremost my job as a physician is still that of a teacher. You cannot simply tell someone what to do, you have to explain and educate,” said Gutierrez. “This has influenced the way I approach my patients.”

Gutierrez moved to the Lone Star State in 2008 where she joined Texas Health Dallas. When she’s not treating patients, the dedicated and loyal doctor is like every other mother. She enjoys spending free time with her husband and two sons, and loves a good book. She is currently training for her first half-marathon in the fall. Gutierrez has exceptional time management skills – while each of her patients has her full attention, she still makes time for her family.

 “At the end of the day, building relationships with each of my patients is most important. I am a people pleaser so my goal is to answer every question and address every complaint while still spending the right amount of time with my family,” said Gutierrez.

Her long-term goal for her practice is plain and simple - to provide great healthcare to the Dallas community. To make an appointment, call (214) 865-7001 or visit www.dallascare.com for more information.
