Meet Our Doctors

UT Southwestern’s Richardson/Plano Primary Care team strives to help patients maintain optimal health and well-being throughout their lives, treating each patient with attentive and compassionate care. In Fall 2013 the Primary Care team will grow with the addition of a Primary Care specialist and expanded medical support staff.

Rudy Lea, M.D., Assistant Professor of Family and Community Medicine, views health care as a partnership between physician and patient, through which he can educate his patients about their health care issues, motivate them to make positive lifestyle changes, and help them achieve and maintain optimal health.

Dr. Lea sees the new Clinical Center as an opportunity to deliver the high quality health services of UT Southwestern into the community at the primary care level, while always having the support and expertise of UTSW when needed to address specific medical needs such as cardiovascular care, cancer care, neurology, minimally invasive surgery, and traditional surgery.
