A short, yet colorful story about our humble beginnings
Four decades ago, a small-town Texas physician practicing solo family medicine decided it was time to change his career path. Ken Teufel, M.D.’s practice was busy, excessively so at times, and since it included a heavy dose of obstetrics, there was no time for vacations or weekends off. It was the same in many other surrounding towns. Many of his colleagues practicing in rural and small communities around the state also had to be available at all hours of the day, seven days per week.
