MPC Indian Hills Welcomes Dr. Andrade

Published: Sept. 26, 2016

Having provided medical care as a physician and surgeon in Venezuela since 1995, Dr. Ferdinando Andrade is continuing his medical career and sharing his expertise with Methodist Health System.

Dr. Andrade is now seeing patients at Methodist Physicians Clinic Indian Hills where he specializes in family medicine.

Fluent in both Spanish and English, Dr. Andrade knows the importance of being multilingual when it comes to patient care. It’s a benefit for both he and his patients.

“When people are sick they are looking for someone who understands them in their first language,” Dr. Andrade said. “I am here to understand them and provide care for them as well.”

His medical experience in Venezuela is impressive.

He worked as a kidney harvest surgeon, a kidney transplant surgeon and primary care physician. He also served as a professor and faculty member at the University of Zulia School of Medicine in Maracaibo, Venezuela.

“I have many favorite moments during the course of my medical career but they all have one thing in common,” Dr. Andrade said. “It’s the face of the patient when you realize our interaction has had a positive impact on his life and sometimes on the life of the entire family. There is nothing that compares to that.”
