David Sloan, MD, is a board-certified internal medicine physician who, after practicing independently in Tyler for 30 years, has joined the ETMC First Physicians internal medicine clinic on Fifth Street. He enjoys interacting with his patients, age 18 and up, and getting to know them helps him keep them healthy.
"I always emphasize personalized care, trying to put value in preventive care and improving the patient's quality and hopefully quantity of life," he said.
Medicine has changed during his career, he noted, with more paperwork but also more availability of services. "The medical community has evolved where in East Texas you can receive excellent care without having to drive to the larger cities."
Dedication to patients is a constant for Dr. Sloan.
"I always try to render the same care for my patients as I would want my own family members to receive."
