Our diverse array of specialties and experiences help us provide excellent, comprehensive geriatric care to the many seniors living in the Rio Grande Valley. Like all of our other patients, they are treated with gentle care and dignity.

After Hours

We realize that our patients sometimes need us outside of regular office hours.  That's why our clinic is open every night starting at 6 pm and every Saturday from 9am -12 pm.  Next time you need us, we are there for you.

Sports Medicine

Injuries are one of life's unpleasant experiences and  unfortunately, injuries can occur when we're having fun.  The VMAC staff understands this and is well equipped to handle sports injuries such as sprains, strains, and fractures.  We work closely with physical therapists to enhance our patient care.
