Deborah Stokes MD
- Gender: Female
Deborah Stokes MD is a licensed physician from Texas. For nearly forty years she has studied, researched, and practiced Internal Medicine. Nearly twenty (20) years ago, Dr. Stokes attended her first laser training and purchased from (MKW) in Baden-Baden, Germany a Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) device at a time when laser technology was truly in its infancy stage. Now, with the advent of High Intensity Laser Therapy, she can more effectively treat her patients without resorting to medication, injections, or surgery.
The technology available today allows us to use non-invasive ways to relieve pain without medication or surgery. Utilization of the FDA cleared (and most powerful) High-Intensity Laser Therapy (HILT) in Texas and other recently FDA cleared equipment such as the Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT) device or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) has become a saving grace for many of Dr. Stokes’s patients. For years, Dr. Stokes and her peers have had growing concerns about the long-lasting side effects of some of the more common treatments, especially pharmaceutical medications and many needless surgeries.
Dr. Stokes uses an integrated approach to patient care that involves both traditional and alternative measures to treat her patients’ conditions, like neuropathy, extremity nerve problems, and degenerative and musculoskeletal conditions. This is to ensure the highest chances of successful treatment, and more importantly the highest rates of recovery.
Deborah Stokes was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas and obtained her medical degree at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. She continued her training with an internship at University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston Texas, followed by an Internal Medicine Residency at Texas Tech Health Science Center. She advanced her education through a preceptorship in Echocardiology Level 3 at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston Texas. She has been practicing medicine for nearly 40 years.
