Adam D. Switzer is a board-certified family nurse practitioner who sees patients of all ages at UT Health East Texas Physicians in Quitman. "It is very rewarding when you get reports back from your patients and they say 'I feel so much better!'"

Working as a nursing-home aide in high school, and later becoming a paramedic, is what increased his interest in working as a nurse. In addition, Switzer's training as a nurse has helped him serve and educate patients on mission trips to Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Haiti and Guatemala.

At home or abroad, he believes a provider should always be able to tell patients the unvarnished truth about their health. "You need honesty - having the guts to be honest enough to tell them what they need to hear."
