Medicine is our passion. Helping people is our calling.

We don’t treat symptoms. We treat people.

Perhaps when you have visited other medical facilities you have been made to feel as though you are simply a "medical bill." You have felt no real overall progress in your health and no true benefits in your lifestyle that come from being a healthy person. We like to take care of people and help them create an individualized health plan with achievable goals. With us, you will be cared for and guided throughout your health journey.

Our Mission

Our goal is to bring high quality service to our patients and to make them feel comfortable when they visit us. We take the necessary time to get to know our patients and understand their needs. We want them to feel understood, respected, and cared for, all while providing the best medical service.

Our Vision

Many people feel like they are simply out of options to turn to for medical assistance and services. Behind every patient there is a person with very real needs. On many occasions it is difficult to find the necessary help, which is why aim to expand our services to reach as many people as possible in the Dallas-Forth Worth community. We don’t want to be your only option. We want to be your best option.

Meet the Doctor

Cesar Peña, M.D. has over 20 years of experience in the medical field. His love for medicine began at a very young age. You could even say that it’s in his blood. Doctor Peña comes from a family of doctors. As a young boy he would spend time in hospitals and medical offices absorbing in his surroundings. As he grew older, he had multiple opportunities to observe operations and all sorts of medical procedures. In truth, his training began before he even stepped foot in medical school. When it came time to make a decision about what his future would hold, there was no question. Medicine was his calling, and he was very enthusiastic about one day being able to help many people achieve their optimum health.

This path then took him to the Technological University of Santiago, from which he obtained his medical degree in 1989. From there, Doctor Peña spent a few years in medical training at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago. He has been practicing medicine in the Dallas-Fort Worth area since 2004.
