Alan J. Vela, M.D.
Alan is passionate about patient education and preventive medicine. He is particularly interested in the neurosciences, and has published research related to improving smoking cessation therapies.
When choosing a doctor, Alan looks for a welcoming staff + office environment. Most importantly, a physician who listens and speaks in a manner that fosters mutual understanding. His favorite part of woking in the medical industry is the opportunity to help entire communities understand all they can about their own health and how to improve their quality of life.
Outside of Gupta Gastro, Alan enjoys following professional and college football, attending live music shows, and writing about himself in the third person.
