Dr. Peter Lazzopina is a board certified family medicine physician leading a movement to redefine health care. He graduated from Thomas Jefferson Medical College in 2008.  Called to Texas to serve Jesus through medicine, Dr. Lazz completed residency at Valley Baptist Family Practice Residency, where he learned to treat people, not just diseases. Since 2011, he has cared for thousands of patients and taught physicians in training to do the same as a teaching physician at the same residency program.  He founded Frontier Direct Primary Care to help restore and renew a patient-physician relationship focused on bringing healing to people rather than on generating data and profits.

Sandy Valdez is the executive nurse at Frontier DPC. She joined Frontier DPC in December 2018. She earned her licensed vocational nursing degree from El Paso Community College in 2009. She became a nurse because she loves helping people. She is married to John and has four children. She loves working at Frontier because there are no barriers to patient care. Instead of spending time talking to insurance companies and government bureaucracies, she has the time to really get to know Frontier members. β€œIt is so rewarding to be able to help people on their terms and not to have the interference from outside parties that slow down other clinics,” Sandy says.
