J. Cary Moorhead, MD, FACS – President


Dr. Cary Moorhead’s passion for education is evident in his medical practice. He enjoys the constant problem solving that medicine demands as well as the technical challenges of surgery. He’s constantly studying the latest research and learning new techniques. Dr. Moorhead also enjoys the personal interaction with his patients. He considers listening to patients and designing a treatment program to best suit each patient to be one of the most important facets of medicine.

The prestige of the Texas Medical Center brought Dr. Moorhead to Houston to attend medical school at Baylor College of Medicine, one of the top medical programs in the country. It’s no surprise he wanted to seek the best of the best. Dr. Moorhead graduated cum laude with a bachelor of arts in German literature from Princeton University, one of the top ranked colleges in the nation.
