R Brandon Harrell, MD

General Surgery
After graduating from Abilene Christian University with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology and a minor in chemistry, Dr. Harrell studied medicine at Texas AM University Health System Center College of Medicine. Dr. Harrell completed his residency in general surgery at Scott and White Hospital in Temple, Texas. He spent two years with the Seton Family of Hospitals in Luling and Kyle, Texas, before joining a large group practice in Nashville, Tennessee, where he worked prior to joining Alamo City Surgeons in 2013. In addition to his work here in the United States, Dr. Harrell's medical mission trips to Guatemala and China underscore his passion for helping heal his patients both physically and spiritually. Inspired by his parents who ministered to South San Antonio's indigent population, Dr. Harrell hopes to continue serving those less fortunate in future mission trips. Dr. Harrell is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and is board certified in general surgery. He enjoys the breadth of procedures he performs as a general surgeon and, like his colleague Dr. Richard Fischer, is experienced in endocrine surgery-both thyroid and parathyroid procedures.
Care Philosophy

"Having a surgical procedure is an intimidating experience for most people. It is my goal to lessen these fears by listening to my patients and building a relationship of trust with them. As a young surgeon, I consider it a privilege to provide my patients with the most current surgical techniques and advancements. Furthermore, I strive to serve every patient in a manner that I would like my own family to be treated. It is my strong belief that God is the author of all healing, both physically and mentally, and I hope to be used as his instrument for all people who are in need."
