Matthew Vela, FNP-C

Advanced Practice Clinician

Mr. Matthew Vela was born and raised in the Corpus Christi area but he and his family have called San Antonio home since 2011.

Mr. Vela began his medical career as a ICU nurse. He noticed many patients came in with end-stage organ dysfunction. He felt that those patients could have avoided this stage if they had proper direction and teaching in the primary care setting. He took it upon himself to help the patients and their families with treatment and education instead of waiting until the patient was at the hospital in need of critical care. Mr. Vela enjoys the opportunity to help his patients maintain their optimal health from a primary care setting.

When not caring for patients, Matthew Vela enjoys traveling, exploring new restaurants and coffee shops around the greater San Antonio with his wife and two boys. He also volunteers as a youth sports coach for his oldest son.
