The people of West Texas are my people. I want to care for them and help them be well. My driving force is to give the best medical care I can give, hands down. My goal is not to just be the best gastroenterologist I can be, but the best physician.– Dr. Sameer Islam
It is important to always be growing and learning new things. That is true in life, but is especially true in medicine. There are always new studies coming out, new procedures being pioneered, and new treatments changing the lives of patients across the country.
We are proud to offer cutting edge procedures that are unique and found in large city teaching hospitals, all right here in West Texas. It's about being ahead of the curve. Recently, report after report has been issued warning of the dangers of chronic use of PPIs, the medicines used to treat chronic heartburn. Suffering through it is not an option either. So what can you do if you decide to avoid medications? Untreated heartburn can lead to permanent scarring in the esophagus and even cancer. There is an incisionless solution (TIF) to ending chronic heartburn and you don't have to travel to have it done.
Always learning, always advancing.

My experience at Dr. Islam's office is what I envision all doctor's offices should be like. The office reception was wonderful. They have very nice, helpful and informative receptionist.
