Sugar Land physician selected for DSHS panel

Joe Anzaldúa, M.D.

TAFP member Joe Anzaldúa, M.D., recently received an invitation to be a member of the Texas Department of State Health Services Crisis Standards of Care Panel. The panel will develop a standards of care framework to address ethical issues and priorities during a crisis situation.

“This is one of several benefits of being a family physician,” Anzaldúa says. “We have the unusual opportunity to use our training and experience outside of traditional family medicine, especially with respect to community health and services.”

After receiving his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical School in San Antonio, Anzaldúa completed his residency training at Memorial Hospital in Houston. He has been practicing in the Sugar Land area since 1985 and is the Medical Director of Emergency Medical Services for the cities of Sugar Land, Stafford, and Missouri City.
