A new family doctor is now practicing at Mercy Clinic Family Medicine – Mt. Vernon. Mauricio Gomez, MD, is accepting new patients.
Dr. Gomez received his medical education from Universidad Autonoma de Ciudad Juarez in Chihuahua, Mexico. He completed both an internship and residency in family and preventive medicine at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, Arkansas.
“After training in Arkansas and visiting Missouri, I knew I didn’t want to travel too far from this area,” Dr. Gomez said, just a few days into his tenure at Mercy. "I feel very humbled to be part of such a wonderful team. My co-workers and the community have made me feel right at home."
Dr. Gomez looks forward to building strong relationships with his new patients. His motto is the William Osler quote, “A good physician treats the disease, but a great physician treats the patient that has the disease.”
In his free time, Dr. Gomez likes to take in the scenery of the Ozarks. “I love nature and being able to go hiking and camping, and I really enjoy water sports like skiing, fishing and boating.”
Even though he’s very familiar with the region, Dr. Gomez says Mercy is his new starting point. "Just having finished residency, I am excited about entering this new phase of my professional career with Mercy and I picture myself in the area for a long time to come."
Dr. Gomez’s office is located at 1319 South Landrum, Suite A. To schedule an appointment, call Mercy Clinic Family Medicine – Mt. Vernon at (417) 466-2001.
