Benjamin Perez is a certified Nurse Practitioner and that has been in the healthcare field for 28 years. He speaks English and Spanish, he has a Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Texas, and he is board certified in Adult and Geriatric specialty. He has worked with seniors in both inpatient and outpatient settings as well as working closely in their homes, and with their families in home health for over 15 years.
His nursing career has spanned a variety of roles and patient populations, in multiple settings, including clinics, hospitals and home health.

It was his desire to maintain and improve the health of individuals and health care services that drew him to the healthcare field. He believes that patients are unique individuals and should be treated with respect and compassion and that they deserve to be included in all healthcare decisions. He enjoys contributing to the well-being of his community, educating people to better manage their health and promote healthy living.
Ben is proudest of his family; he is married with three children and comes from a family of six, which has made him an uncle to 15 nephews and nieces. When he is not caring for patients, he likes spending time with family, enjoying nature, practicing sports, reading, or watching a good movie or documentary.
