Moiz Tajkhanji, MD
Founding Physician Chairman / Chief Medical Officer
Growing up as a child in India, I was greatly influenced by two people, who inspired me to choose medicine as a profession. One was our own Family Physician, who was my role model as I dreamt of becoming just like him, in the manner that he always conveyed hope and serenity as well as sound advice to all of his patients. The other was my mother, who nurtured my natural curiosity and passion. Her wish for me was to become a physician so that I could truly help humanity as she believed that the ultimate service to God was by helping His people.
After I completed my schooling in Mumbai, India I attended medical school in the city of Bangalore, often known as the Medical Mecca of India. Upon completion of my training I met my wife who shared my dream of practicing medicine and so we migrated to the United States. I was able to secure a residency in a community hospital program where I had the opportunity to acquire the skills in various sub specialties such as Internal Medicine, Ob-Gyn, Pediatrics, General Surgery, Dermatology, Allergy Medicine, etc... I was fortunate to have very experienced attending physicians who believed in me and recommended me for the position of Chief Resident in my final year. After completing my residency I then moved to Texas to be closer to my extended family.
I started my career working with a Family Practice group on the south side of San Antonio, where during my two years there I enhanced my skills as well as acquired the business acumen that would help me when I eventually opened up my own practice. Throughout my journey of my practice I found myself often stumbling on questions from patients that I just could not answer. However as I researched further and further, the direction I wanted for my own practice became clear. I understood that to truly help my patients I would have to treat them holistically rather than just focusing on individual systems and concerns. My style is defined by listening dedicatedly to my patients, and trying to discover the root of their problems. From this I found I was able to truly help my patients.
In a further effort to offer the most optimal care to my patients, I came across A4M, the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Wellness Medicine, and I began a fellowship to learn methods offering many more alternatives to my patients rather than just traditional medicine. My future dream is to continue to sharpen my skills as I truly believe one never stops learning in life. I am hoping to put together a robust anti-aging and preventative wellness based program for my dedicated patients to truly give them the best choices for improved health and a better quality of life.
