Dr. Ana Arroyave


I am Ana Maria Arroyave, a board certified Family Physician from el Paso Texas. I was born in Colombia, South America and graduated from the University del Valle in my home country. I finished a family residency program at Texas Tech University and a Preventive Medicine residency program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I started my career in academics working as a medical educator at the Texas Tech Medical School in El Paso. After 2 years and a half, I decided to go into clinical practice. I work in an outpatient setting, emphasize clinical prevention and lifestyle change with my patients. I developed a strong interest in integrative medicine during my clinical and personal experience with disease, and believe this concept best fits my practice philosophy.

My passion is to help my patients to live healthier through lifestyle modifications and judicious use of medications when needed. I am a firm believer in prevention and I have came to understand through many years of clinical experience that good health starts with a healthy diet, regular physical activity and effective management of stress. It gives me great satisfaction to see lives transformed or improved with small changes that patients often incorporate in their everyday routines as a result of the encouragement they find during a doctors' visit. It is my goal to provide some help to my patients during their journey towards finding a good balance that allows them to live healthier and happier.

My work is a great privilege. My greatest reward is when people tell me they like to see me because I listen and I care. It makes me sad to see how patients are gradually more frustrated with the fragmented and complex health care system. I have stablished professional relationships with clinicians in different specialties and this allows me to deliver acute, chronic, and preventive care. I believe in good communication, personal interaction and continuity of care to work for a common goal. "
