Dr. Ralph's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ralph "Dr. Stephen Ralph is a primary care physician at Elms Creek Family and Urgent Care Clinic providing care for Killeen and the surrounding central Texas communities. He relocated to Killeen in 2012 after practicing for 25 years in the Long Island/New York area. Dr. Ralph's education started at Fordham University and then to Guadalajara, Mexico for medical school. He adopted the language and culture, which has been invaluable in caring for the Hispanic community. His post-graduate training in Internal Medicine was at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, attaining Board Certification. The majority of Dr. Ralph's experience has been in Emergency Medicine attaining Board Ceritifaction in that specialty as well; serving as Assistant Medical Director in Bayshore, Long Island. His experience extends to serving on the staff of Long Island State Veteran Home, on the campus of SUNY/Stony Brook University Hospital, several years in a multi-specialty group practice and additionally with his father, a General Practice physician. He credits growing up around both his father's and grandfather's practices, both General Practitioners, with his love for medicine; "I never really considered any other career." "The most common question I am asked is 'How did you end up in Killeen?'" In 2010, Dr. Ralph went to Zambia, Africa on a mission trip. It was there as a member of the medical team that he met Dr. Charles Mitchell, a long time physician in Killeen. "We became friends and I was ready for a new chapter in my life." Dr. Ralph's most recent enthusiasm is in aggressively pursuing lifestyle changes to impact his patient's health. He has witnessed that many of our country's western diseases are provoked by our lifestyle choices; the foods we eat, our physical activity, and our emotional well-being all heavily-influence our health. Dr. Ralph encourages his patients through personal counseling, recommending books, movies, and online material. He is a member of the Metroplex Hospital Staff and is proud to be a member of the Elms Creek Family and Urgent Care Clinic and desires to provide care to our community for many years to come.

Sad when your turned away because you can't pay office visit in full because you haven't met your insurance deductible. I was told that Dr and hospitals can't turn you away for not having funds guess it's not true in Killeen. All I needed was a refill I only take once in awhile.
