Jerry Jurado, MD

  • Family Medicine

I strive to understand my patients’ cultural and personal values, so that together we can create an individualized care plan. I particularly enjoy caring for patients from diverse backgrounds and prioritize educating them about their conditions and treatment options, and helping them to make informed decisions about their health.
