WE CARE Clinic
Owner: Dr. Sergio Alvarado
“Thank you SBDC. The assistance I received was extremely helpful in starting my clinic.”
After graduating from college, Sergio Alvarado began teaching middle school and coaching girls’ soccer. During his time as a soccer coach, he observed how an injury hindered an athlete’s potential. Sergio did not want student athletes to lose their motivation when faced with a physical injury. So he began his career in medicine. He graduated from Autonomous University of Guadalajara Faculty of Medicine, completed his residency at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center; and is board certified in family and sports medicine.
Dr. Alvarado wanted to open his own sports medical clinic. He wanted to allow himself time to talk to his patients, get to know them and not feel rushed. The SBDC assisted Dr. Alvarado with industry data, a business plan, and financial projections. In addition to being a business owner, Dr. Alvarado is also a volunteer team physician for many area high school football and wrestling teams.
