Qualifications and Experience
Innovative Urgent Care and Family Practice Clinic is a private clinic. We are not owned or managed by large corporations or hospital systems. Therefore, you will always visit with the same professional who takes great pride in providing personalized services in an efficient and friendly environment.
It's sole owner, John, has lived in Helotes for over 11 years now and considers the San Antonio area to be home. He has been married to Irma, who is a nurse, for 21 years and has two children who are also very supportive and involved in his business. He has been working as a clinician in various ERs in the San Antonio, Corpus Christi, and Victoria areas, but has also worked in urgent care and family health settings. His passion, however, is in the ER and Urgent Care settings and the business aspect that comes with each.
Before becoming a clinician, John owned and operated 7 outpatient physical therapy clinics located throughout South Texas for over 10 years. As a non practicing owner, the challenge and reward of not providing direct patient care was missing, so in 2009 he sold the business and enrolled in school with the goal of becoming a clinician and opening an urgent care practice.
When not striving to keep his patients happy and healthy, he enjoys reading, golfing, snow skiing, and traveling with his family. He is currently enrolled at The University of Texas at El Paso as a doctoral student as part of his continued commitment to providing the highest level of care in a cost effective manner.

No waiting and he was professional and informative
Great staff the visit was great very informative and reassuring that we are working toward the same goals . Would highly recommend this office
He was courteous and promptly examined me, refilled the prescriptions I needed and had a pleasant bedside manner. The office environment was friendly.
I had barely sat down in the waiting room before i was called back. Kristin took my vitals, and she was great! I only waited in the room for maybe 5 minutes before John came in. He listened to my concerns and offered advice. Wrote me a prescription for what i needed, and provided documentation for my workplace. I was in and out in less than an hour. Great staff! Wonderful experience. Will definitely be rebooking!
