Roxana Rhodes recognized as UTMB “Top Doc”

AUSTIN, TexasNov. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Internist Dr. Roxana Rhodes was recently distinguished as one of 14 physicians to receive a 2019 Top Doc Award by the UTMB School of Medicine. Founder of Partners in Health Concierge Medical Practice, Dr. Rhodes was honored at a celebration in October at Moody Gardens in Galveston, Texas.

Dr. Rhodes graduated from UTMB in 1991 and has been part of the community faculty for over 10 years, serving as a mentor and teacher. “As a fourth-generation physician, I understand the importance of preparing the next generation,” said Dr. Rhodes. “I am happy to devote part of my time to their training, and I also get tremendous value from being part of this program. My patients and I benefit from having the energy and enthusiasm of UTMB medical students in my practice.”

Dr. Miles Farr, Assistant Dean of Education Affairs, School of Medicine at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB), notes that community-based educators are an important part of training the future generation of physicians. Each year, the UTMB School of Medicine awards the Teacher of Distinction Award to a select group of community-based educators. The recognition is based on several criteria, including student evaluations, time and commitment to community-based education, quality of the educational environment, and participation in faculty development and community services. “We are so proud to recognize Dr. Rhodes, for the second time, with the Teacher of Distinction Award,” said Dr. Farr. “We are so proud to have her on our team and extend our deepest appreciation.

First Anniversary Celebration – Thursday October 10

Roxana Rhodes MD would like to invite all patients past and present, colleagues, and friends of the practice to an Open House event. This will be a fun event with snacks from locally famous TacoMan 512, wine and beverages, healthy living door prizes, and more. Stop by if you can!

Home Health Care Kit

Many of my patients are doing virtual office visits these days. With the traffic in Austin such as it is, it can save a lot of time for minor illnesses as you will not have to visit the office. I have created an Amazon idea list of the basic items need for this. Note that the exact features and brands are not important – any medical grade version will do.

The Blood Pressure Monitor is the most important. You can use this to take your blood pressure and pulse. A good thermometer and pulse oximeter is also good. You should be able to get all three for less that $75, and you can generally get reimbursed by your FSA plan.

Remember we will also make house or hospital calls if you are too ill to travel – just ask.
