Robert Wessman, MD, is a board-certified family medicine physician at UT Health East Texas Physicians in Carthage who enjoys interacting with patients of all ages. "It's rewarding to see patients benefiting from the care I've provided over time."
He began his career with a surgical residency, but quickly switched to family medicine. "In surgery, you don't get a lot of patient contact. I missed the daily interactions and challenges of solving problems with a variety of patients."
