The physicians of the Southwest Association of Nigerian Physicians can help people in the El Paso and Las Cruces communities with all kinds of disciplines, from general practice to different specialties so you can stay on the right track to a bright and healthy future. These practice areas include:

Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases

Our primary care physicians are equipped to help you with internal or general medicine, which focuses on general health inquiries, including asthma, routine checkups, allergies, and vaccines. They can also help you with adult infectious diseases, including the flu, UTIs, and strep throat. It’s important to stay on top of your health, in general, to avoid serious complications from happening later on.


Our association is also equipped with trustworthy pediatricians. Pediatricians work primarily with infants, children, and adolescents. Because the body of a baby, child, and teen are all different than an adult’s body, it’s important to find a doctor who knows specifically how to treat injuries and illnesses in an infant or adolescent body. Our pediatricians are happy to help you!

Emergency Medicine

When you’re experiencing appendicitis, a stroke, or any other kind of emergent issue, your best bet is going to an emergency room. Emergency medicine serves an important role because people can never know when they might need to be treated for something life-threatening. Our emergency medicine doctors can help you in your time of need.


Neurologists work primarily with the nervous system and brain, treating disorders like migraines, epilepsy, and sleep disorders. Neurologists are specifically trained to treat these kinds of disorders, which frequently overlap with psychiatric issues.


Psychiatrists are slightly different than neurologists in the sense that they treat mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. This can include depression, OCD, and anxiety. It’s important to note that there are both adult and child psychiatrists who can help in different ways.


Cardiologists work with the heart and cardiovascular system to treat issues like cardiac arrest, anemia, and heart abnormalities. This branch of medicine is especially important and our cardiologists are always ready to help you on your road to recovery.


Nephrology deals with disorders of the kidneys. If you require kidney dialysis, treatment for kidney stones, and so on, our nephrologists can help you feel better.


Radiologists use imaging technology to create images of body parts beneath the skin to analyze, diagnose, and apply treatments without having to perform surgery. Common forms of radiology include X-Rays, ultrasounds, and MRIs, which can be used to analyze broken bones and to check on the health of babies while they’re still in the womb.
