Serving physicians in Sugar Land, Katy, Richmond, Missouri City, Rosenberg, Stafford, Fulshear.

 

Our future is bright. Fort Bend County continues to grow and the quality of medical services provided by our medical institutions is now on a par with the Texas Medical Center. Physicians are continuing to seek out practice opportunities in the County, and new Surgery Centers, emergency facilities, and specialty clinics continue to spring up each month. A vibrant medical community such as ours needs strong medical society that is part of the Texas Medical Association.

FBMS wishes to proactively engage members of the public and keep residents of Fort Bend County satisfied with their health care services. FBMS wants to the best services to its consumers and member physicians. However, the society can only be effective if our members support each other and step up to take on leadership roles.
