Cooper Clinic Physician Named Preston Hollow People’s Choice Winner
We are thrilled that Christopher Abel, MD, Executive Vice President and Medical Director at Cooper Clinic, received the People’s Choice 2012 Award by Preston Hollow People Newspaper and Park Cities People Newspaper. They noted that Dr. Abel is “a regular on local ‘best’ lists” as he also received the award in 2010.
The People’s Choice Award is the paper’s way of letting the community vote for their favorite dining, services and people in the city. Contenders for the award are chosen based on previous year’s ballots as well as recommendations from their staff. The staff decides who makes it on the ballot, but then the community votes to pick the winners.
Dr. Abel joined Cooper Clinic nearly 13 years ago. As a preventive medicine physician he sees patients for their comprehensive physical exam and helps them improve or maintain their health. He also oversees laboratory operations, Cooper Clinic Platinum direct medicine practice and the specialty areas of preventive and cosmetic dermatology and gastroenterology. Dr. Abel received a Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Medicine from Texas A&M University and completed his internal medicine residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. He is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
