Big Plans for a Heart-Healthy Valley
With the addition last year of a second full-time Rio Grande Valley pediatric cardiologist, the Driscoll Health System – Pediatric Cardiology clinic, located at Driscoll Children’s Medical Plaza-McAllen, has big plans to help improve the quality of life for the children and parents of the Rio Grande Valley.
Born in New York and raised on the west coast of California. Like so many of us, Dr. Honrubia moved to the Valley in search of greater opportunity and, in doing so, brought hope and growth to an underserved region. Dr. Honrubia came at a time when there was limited availability of otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat) specialists in the area, bringing a certain level of prestige to the Valley’s medical system by earning his degrees through the University of California system and doing his internships at Northwestern University and at Columbus Hospital, both in Chicago, Illinois. He was also the first otolaryngologist to offer advanced endoscopic sinus surgery in the Valley.
