In the 42 years I have lived in Galveston, I have had only three personal physicians at UTMB, Dr. Jamie Newman (now at the Mayo Clinic), Dr. Fritz Zuanbrecher (retired), and Dr. LaForte; all of whom have upheld the highest professional and ethical standards. I feel fortunate and privileged to have had my health in the hands of these men.Dec 04,2019
