Shi-tze Lu, M.D.

Personal Statement
I graduated from Baylor College of Medicine in 1994, and completed my internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Texas at Houston. I have been Board Certified in Internal Medicine since 1997, and have recently been recertified in November 2007. After completing my training in 1997, I practiced at MacGregor Medical Association until 2002. Although I thoroughly enjoyed my 5 years there, I always felt that things could be done better, and that I could provide better service in a smaller, more personal setting. I believe in providing my services through comprehensive quality medical care, attentive listening, and patient education.

With these goals in mind, I started a new clinic in the Hermann Professional Building in the Texas Medical Center in 2002 with a colleague, Dr. Joseph O'Dwyer. I worked extensively at three of the major hospitals there: The Methodist Hospital, Memorial Hermann Hospital, and Texas Orthopedic Hospital, in addition to maintaining and managing a busy clinic schedule.

Ultimately, however, my goal has always been to get back to the community and focus on outpatient and preventive care. As of September 2013, I have relocated to Associates in Medicine. In this setting, I hope to provide easier accessibility and continue to provide the level of health care that I feel you deserve.
