Dr. Brewer says...

Dr. Brewer was born and raised in Texas.  He grew up in an active family of three brothers while excelling as an All-District varsity athlete and Eagle Scout.  He graduated from Belton High School finishing 2nd in his class out of 450 students.   He went on to complete his undergraduate degree from Baylor University with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology and Chemistry.  After Baylor, he was recruited as a researcher and lab manager for the Texas A&M College of Medicine Cardiovascular Research Institute.  Here he cultivated his love of medicine and the passion to heal the body through surgical means. 

With an opportunity to advance his medical knowledge and a keen since of adventure, Dr. Brewer decided to attend medical school in California, graduating among the top in his class from Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine.  He completed his internship in General Surgery from Harbor-UCLA, Los Angeles County Medical Center.  As he continued to gain experience and skill in the operating room, he strengthened his desire for the surgical subspecialties.  He admired vision as a vital gift and his interest in the anatomy and physiology of the visual system combined with the challenge of ophthalmic surgery made ophthalmology the perfect match.

Upon completion of surgical internship, Dr. Brewer became a flight surgeon for the United States Air Force in San Antonio, TX.  Here he worked with the Ophthalmology division of the Aeromedical Consultation Service at the USAF School of Aerospace Medicine.  He was then accepted into the Air Force ophthalmology residency program, San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium, a training institution consistently ranked among the finest programs in the U.S.  As a resident he was scrupulously educated in ophthalmology and learned the latest technologies that the field offers.  He finished his training as one of the top national performers on the ophthalmology in-service board exams.

As a first military assignment, Dr. Brewer was selected to lead the ophthalmology department at Keesler AFB.  Here his team would be recognized as one of the most productive surgical elements in the USAF- performing more refractive surgeries in 2015 then any other Air Force hospital.  He currently holds multiple academic appointments as a clinical professor of medicine- teaching residents and fellows the art of ophthalmic surgery.

Dr. Brewer truly values the physician-patient relationship.  His primary goal is to establish a good rapport with his patients and discuss in detail the findings of the eye exam and thoroughly explain the rationale for medical and/or surgical treatment if indicated.

His interests include small-incision cataract surgery, glaucoma, diabetes, refractive surgery and comprehensive ophthalmology, including medical and surgical treatment of many diseases of the eye.  He enjoys teaching residents, fellows and other trainees the arts and science of vision correcting surgery. 

Dr. Brewer enjoys spending his free time with his wife and family, as well as running, golfing, weightlifting and cheering for COLLEGE FOOTBALL!
