The practices expand STHS Clinics’ presence in McAllen with the system’s fifth and sixth locations in the City of Palms

South Texas Health System Clinics is committed to treating patients – not diseases or illnesses. The staff at the nearly 50 STHS Clinics strive to provide quality, compassionate care to their patients, who are warmly welcomed like family. In maintaining high standards for patient care and the overall patient experience, STHS Clinics has become the top choice for thousands of patients across the Rio Grande Valley for health screenings, primary care and advanced specialized care.

To keep healthcare accessible throughout the region, STHS Clinics has launched several new practices — ranging from general surgery to cardiology and more — in the past year alone. On Thursday, February 17, it celebrated the grand opening of its sixth and seventh with a socially distanced ribbon cutting ceremony.

Located in McAllen’s Trenton Crossing Shopping Center, STHS Clinics’ newest family medicine and outpatient clinics give North McAllen residents and those in the surrounding areas a new quality, convenient option for their medical needs.

The practices share a 6,500+ square-foot space. Dr. Luis Uresti and Dr. Chris Casso serve as the attending family medicine physicians and treat pediatric, adult and geriatric populations; the rehabilitation side offers speech, physical and occupational therapies and is staffed by Anthony Esquivel, DPT, Jonathan Arias, DPT, Corina Gonzalez, OTR and Ana Vallejo, SLP.

“Growing up in the RGV and being able to serve my community as a Family Medicine Physician is humbling and rewarding,” Dr. Casso said. “I help diagnose and treat a diverse range of illnesses, including common colds, skin conditions, diabetes, hypertension, asthma, and many others.

“I am excited to be able to provide preventative care from our new beautiful, state of the art location in McAllen.”

The STHS Clinics Outpatient Rehabilitation Clinic and Family Medicine Clinic, located at 7900 N. 10th St., McAllen, TX 78504, Suite A, are open Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit STHS Clinics.
