Houston Neurologist Dr. Desiree Bobino Thomas


– Hello, I’m Dr. Desiree Bobino Thomas. I’m a neurologist here
at Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. (gentle piano music) The thing I like most about being a doctor is getting to know people, so I treat my patients like
they’re friends or family, so a lot of people wonder, well, why am I asking about
their job or their kids or what they do in their spare time, but I think when you get to know somebody, then it really makes you
understand that person, and then you can more individualize the approach that you’re
gonna take with their care. When I was growing up, my
mom had terrible migraines, and watching her suffer, going
to her doctor’s appointments, I ended up deciding to be a neurologist which encompasses migraines,
which is what my mom had, and I was able to help her
meet with Kelsey doctors to help in coordinating her care. That’s when I really
understood the Kelsey family, how they treated my mom as a patient. That was very special to me. When I learned more about Kelsey-Seybold, how we have everything under one roof, how we have specialists and internists and family doctors and
pediatricians all together, I realized what a good
model it was for practice, and it would help me take
care of my patients better, to have everything together, so I was excited when they
offered me a position here. Being a doctor, it’s a
calling and it’s a challenge, and it’s always a privilege
to take care of people. The most exciting thing
is sometimes I have people refer their friends or
people bring in their spouse or they bring in a
family member to see me, and it always warms my heart to know that I’m not only taking care of that person, but also their family and friends, and it’s a honor to work
here, and I look forward to continue to do this
for many years to come.
