HOUSTON (July 29, 2009)

Family Medicine Specialist Abigail F. Wynne, MD, has joined Memorial Hermann Medical Group in West Pearland, a physician-led subsidiary of Memorial Hermann Health System.

Dr. Wynne joins the West Pearland clinic’s two other board-certified family medicine specialists, Quang D. Bui, MD, and Chieu Y. Foo, MD. “I am very excited about joining Memorial Hermann Medical Group,” said Dr. Wynne. “I look forward to providing the full spectrum of care to individuals and families throughout this growing area.”

A graduate of Texas A&M University, Dr. Wynne received her medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. She completed residency training in family medicine at Memorial Family Medicine Residency Program in Houston/Sugar Land.

She is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and Texas Academy of Family Physicians and most recently practiced at Physicians at Sugar Creek Urgent Care.

Dr. Wynne functions as a primary care physician for the entire family, which includes providing a complete medical perspective that looks at the whole patient, recognizing a patient’s specific care needs, then tailoring and coordinating treatment plans accordingly.

“Memorial Hermann places high value on the role of primary care physicians because we believe that patients who have an ongoing relationship with a primary care physician are more likely to receive the preventive care they need,” said Dr. Doug Ardoin, physician-in-chief of Memorial Hermann Health System. “Primary care physicians can manage their patients’ entire health care program because they know the patients’ needs and history, they can help make important health care decisions, and they can provide referrals to any needed specialists.”

Practicing within the Memorial Hermann Medical Group will allow Dr. Wynne to focus on patients’ personal healthcare needs while enjoying access to the resources and innovations of a respected healthcare system. Dr. Wynne will continue to grow her medical practice while Memorial Hermann provides business office and technology support services, including deploying an integrated electronic medical record, billing and collecting, insurance reimbursement contracting and information technology.

Dr. Wynne will see patients of all ages and has an interest in pediatrics and women’s health, including well-woman exams and other preventive medicine.
