Karen Wies, MD, FACP, is a board-certified internal medicine physician and wound specialist at UT Health East Texas Physicians on Fifth Street who begins caring for her patients by listening. “I spend a long, first visit with patients. Once I know their side of the story and what their main concern is, I can focus on what I need to do.”

 

A retired colonel in the U.S. Air Force, Dr. Wies previously served as chief of staff at Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio, the Air Force’s largest hospital. Today, her goal is a partnership with her patients. “I want my patients to feel positive about their healthcare, so that they are proactive and involved in their treatment plan.”
