Primary care provider Dr. Valerie Serrano is board certified in family medicine and holds certificates in basic life support (BLS), advanced cardiovascular life support (ACLS) and advanced life support in obstetrics (ALSO). She treats patients of all ages and speaks fluent Spanish,

After finishing her undergraduate degree in nutrition and foods at the University of Houston, Dr. Serrano earned her medical degree at Ross University School of Medicine in Portsmouth, Dominica. She completed her residency at UT Health San Antonio Medical School, where she was academic chief resident.

Dr. Serrano treats a range of conditions, including obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, and offers immunizations. Another primary clinical interest is adolescent medicine.

Her nutrition degree was Dr. Serrano’s first stop on the way to a medical career. With three physician siblings, she wanted to take a different path, but when she realized she wanted to take care of the whole patient, she decided to attend medical school. Her early training remains the basis of her interest in nutrition, weight loss and health maintenance.

Dr. Serrano takes a holistic approach to care, looking at patients as individuals. She wants them to know what’s going on and that they have autonomy over their bodies. She ensures that they can not only understand lab results, but also follow her reasoning behind ordering tests and medications. To help them interpret written information and online charting, she uses a variety of explanations and illustrations. When they leave her office, she wants them to have a grasp of things they may not have previously understood.

Her favorite part of practice is celebrating patients’ successes—improved diabetes, lowered blood pressure—as well as seeing them reach life milestones like high school or college graduation.

Dr. Serrano is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and Texas Academy of Family Physicians.
