the New Girl & Other News

We have enjoyed watching our patients grow through the years, and we are humbled and grateful that you have allowed your family to grow with us.  As our practice continues to grow, we want to ensure that the exceptional care you deserve and have come to expect from us never waivers.  With that in mind, we have added a few new faces to our staff, and today we’d like to introduce to our registered nurse, Abby Mertz. She joined our office in July and has already become a favorite amongst patients!

Abby graduated from Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing and has brought an abundant amount of energy and enthusiasm to our office. When she’s not taking care of our patients, she enjoys trying out new restaurants (her favorite food is Italian or cheeseburgers), exploring the outdoors, spending time with her friends and playing with her new wiener pup, Daisy. Pre-Covid-19, the last place Abby visited was Mexico, and the first thing she plans to do when things return to normal is … you guessed it … travel. Or go shopping … or  both.

When Abby was a little girl, she wanted to be a veterinarian. That desire to care and heal evolved in to a passion for taking care of humans. Abby loves building ongoing relationships with patients and their families, and she literally thinks POWB patients “are the best.”  We kind of feel the same way about her. Please join us in giving a warm welcome to Abby!


Flu vaccines have arrived, and this year we are offering both the mist and shots. This year it’s especially important to make sure you and your families are vaccinated. 


“People who can avoid the flu will help reduce the burden on a U.S. health care system already overwhelmed by COVID-19,” said Mark Thompson, an epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Quantities are limited (espeically with the mist), so be sure today to schedule your shot: 972-781-1414.


We are pleased to announce that Saturdays are now availabe for office visits.

This month, our office will be open on 9/12 and 9/26 from 8:30-11:30.

Stay tuned for future Saturdays in October, November and December!
