Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cathey Jr "George V. Cathey Jr., MD, is a board-certified family medicine physician at UT Health East Texas Physicians clinic in Quitman with a simple philosophy of care: "I put the patient first and always do what's best for them."

While growing up in Quitman he was encouraged to pursue a career as a physician. His family doctor told him if he'd go to medical school and come back to his hometown, he'd turn his practice over to him. "It took me about 15 years to get there, but that was my goal, and I achieved it."

During his three decades of providing care for families in Quitman, Dr. Cathey has treated many patients. "Knowing my patients well and helping them coordinate their medical care is very important to me. I'm able to refer them to the highest quality specialists I know, because I have a lot of experience with them.""
