When neighbors turn to us in their medical emergency, there are many people they meet at Neighbors Emergency Center. But it’s our doctors who are the foundation of the Neighbors experience. These compassionate, dedicated, board-certified professionals care for our patients and have the experience that thousands of people have trusted when injury or illness strike.
March 30 is National Doctor’s Day and we are honored to share with you some of the finest physicians in Texas that have chosen to be part of the Neighbors family.
Dr. Roberson in Pearland
Neighbors Pearland is led by Medical Director Dr. Eric Roberson. A native Houstonian, Dr. Roberson grew up just 10 minutes north of Pearland and is a proud graduate of James Madison High School. A United States Air Force veteran, Dr. Roberson is a board-certified Internal Medicine physician and been practicing medicine for 20 years. Dr. Roberson joined the Neighbors family in 2014 and was drawn to the freestanding ER industry because it would allow him more time to interact and treat his patients, as well as work in a special environment that is customer service driven and patient-centered.
“Dr. Roberson embodies the Neighbors values and culture on a daily basis,” said Neighbors Pearland Facility Director Tina Levert, RN. “His bedside manner is second to none as it puts the patients at ease by taking the time to thoroughly explain his treatment plan and procedures. The patients and staff can easily see his compassion shining through.”
“Dr. Roberson is not only knowledgeable in health-related issues, he is also a savvy businessman with many spectacular ideas in moving our Pearland team forward. It is evident Dr. Roberson has a passion for his work as an ER physician.”
Dr. Mitchell in Orange
Doctors lead busy lives and Dr. Lylieth Mitchell, Neighbors Orange’s Medical Director, is no exception as she also supports the operations at Neighbors Beaumont and Neighbors Port Arthur. Her extensive ER medicine background and her focus to always keep the patient first is what members of the Neighbors family appreciate most about Dr. Mitchell.
“She is sympathetic, empathetic, caring and acts in the best interests of the patient,” stated Neighbors Beaumont Marketing Liaison Kim Cao. “Dr. Mitchell has a great bed side manner, is a good communicator, she’s current with latest scientific information and is a natural leader. I know how respectful of others she is and that she goes out of the way to help patients.”
Dr. Jaiyebo in Brownsville
As a child Dr. Omotola Jaiyebo of Neighbors Brownsville couldn’t stand the site of blood, but she wanted to be a physician. She was able to overcome that fear and is now a leader at Neighbors Brownsville as well as in her local community.
“It gives me joy seeing the smile on my patients’ faces when they start feeling better after an illness,” Dr. Jaiyebo said. “I particularly enjoy working at Neighbors as it affords me and other physicians the quality time we need to address each patient’s concerns and issues.”
“As a doctor we don’t feel rushed. We can actually sit with the patient at the time when we are seeing them and take our time to explain their diagnosis and treatments unlike the traditional hospital ER, which is so busy.”
Dr. Hott in Kingwood
A career path that started in Chicago has led Neighbors Kingwood’s Medical Director Dr. Kimberly Hott through nearly a decade of academic Emergency Medicine at a Level 1 trauma center. She then spent seven years as the Assistant Director/Director of a busy Level 2 trauma center in Waco, and seven years in busy community hospital ERs, including three years in administrative roles. For the past eight years Dr. Hott has had the opportunity to practice medicine in freestanding ERs.
“I came to Neighbors during a time of personal crisis and found an amazing group of people who not only embraced the philosophy that we can provide better care for our patients, but also offered their friendship and support,” commented Dr. Hott. “At the end of the day, being surrounded by people who respect and appreciate you makes all of the challenges feel like hills not mountains. I am truly blessed to be part of the Neighbors family.”
Dr. Hubbard in Amarillo
An Amarillo native, Dr. Donald Hubbard is Neighbors Amarillo‘s Medical Director. A proven leader with years of ER experience, Dr. Hubbard’s Neighbors staff calls him the voice of comfort and reason. He always makes himself available when needed and he has never missed a staff meeting. His dedication to Neighbors Amarillo has been evident as he has personally paid for and built the Neighbors Christmas float for the city’s holiday parade.
“For the last two Christmas’ Dr. Hubbard has gifted every employee and opened his house to the staff for a Christmas Party,” shared Neighbors Amarillo Facility Director Christopher Heath. “Dr. Hubbard is not just a great doctor, he is a good person. He truly cares for his patients as well as for his staff. We all feel honored to work alongside him and we do it with a smile.”
Dr. Thomas in Copperfield
Dr. Bobby Thomas, Neighbors Copperfield’s Medical Director, decided to become a physician because he wanted to help people in their time of need. With a reputation as one of the nicest people to meet, Dr. Thomas is also the first to lend a hand and pitch in.
When he’s not at Neighbors saving lives, Dr. Thomas enjoys spending time with his wife, 7-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son.
Dr. Miryala in Porter
Dr. Radheshyam Miryala, Neighbors Porter’s Medical Director, is an amazing doctor but also a stand out in his community, as well as a strong supporter of the New Caney ISD Education Foundation. What his Neighbors family admires most about him is the dedicated person he is and how he gives so much to everyone around him.
“Rarely do you meet someone that shines a light on the people around them by uplifting them through their examples and positive actions,” commented Neighbors Porter Marketing Liaison Claire King. “Dr. Miryala is such a supporter of all people. He is always available to help out a cause and feels passionately about always doing what is right for his fellow man.”
“He literally encompasses every core value that Neighbors stands for: a friendly smile, a compassionate heart, a nurturing mentality, a creative spark and always accessible and transparent. His actions truly speak louder than words. We are so lucky to have him at Porter.”
We celebrate each of the nearly 200 physicians that are part of the Neighbors family and thank them for the work they do for their patients and for the communities they work in. It is the effort and dedication every Neighbors Emergency Center physician possesses that helps each of us, or someone we love, in a medical emergency. Thank you doctors for being behind our patients and enriching the Neighbors difference.
