The American Health Council is proud to elect Dr. Pedro Blandon, Associate Professor of Nephrology at Texas Tech University (TTU), to their Board of Physicians. With 22 years in the healthcare industry, including 11 in his current position, Dr. Blandon shares with the AHC a wealth of skills and expertise in Nephrology and Medicine.
Dr. Blandon attended Universidad de Guadalajara Faculty of Medicine, where he obtained his MD (1995) in Nephrology and Medicine and graduated with Honors. He is Board Certified in both Nephrology and Internal Medicine. He became involved in his profession because he felt the Nephrology field had many treatment options to offer patients who suffered from chronic kidney disease. Dr. Blandon cites his ongoing success to hard work and perseverance.
Dr. Blandon has been invited to speak at several regional events in New Mexico and Corpus Christi, as well in several local conferences. From 2009-2015, he was named Residency Program Director of the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Paul L. Foster School of Medicine at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.
Dr. Blandon is bilingual – exercising his fluency in both English and Spanish. He looks forward to starting his own private practice in February 2018. While launching into the private medical sector, Dr. Blandon will continue to treat new Nephrology patients and perform the duties of Aviation Medical Examiner in El Paso, Texas. He is also a licensed pilot and owns a small plane, enjoying traveling and exploring new sites in his spare time.
