UT Health East Texas Physicians in Tyler announced certified physician assistant M. Shawn Gonter, PA-C, has joined the group. He specializes in orthopedics.
Gonter originally found interest in medicine while serving as a special forces medic.
“After getting out, it was only logical to pursue a career in a field I already loved,” he said. Between his military and civilian careers, Gonter has more than 28 years of medical experience, according to information from UT Health East Texas.
Working closely with patients has always been a priority for Gonter.
“My care philosophy is to treat all my patients as if they are family or friends; that way I know they will always receive my undivided attention and the best care I can provide,” he said.
Gonter earned his bachelor’s degree in sociology from Dixie College in St. George, Utah. In addition, he completed his master’s degree in physician assistant studies at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.
He is accepting new patients at 700 Olympic Plaza Circle, Suite 600. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 903-596-3844.
