Dr. Jeffrey Munoz is a board certified Family Medicine Physician who was born and raised in San Antonio. He completed his undergraduate work at UTSA earning a Bachelor’s of Science degree in biology. He went on to complete medical school at UT Health Medical School in San Antonio, where he also completed residency training in Family Medicine.
After residency training in 1998, Dr. Munoz joined Community Medicine Associates as a primary care physician and cared for patients in the University Family Health Center in southwest San Antonio for five years. He then joined Texas MedClinic in San Antonio in where he practiced urgent care and occupational medicine for 14 years. He has returned to primary care with Sage Medicine continuing his passion in medicine in helping and caring for patients in their journey of improving, restoring and maintaining optimal health.
When he is not caring for patients or studying, he spends most of his time with his wife and daughter. He enjoys cooking and has become an avid cook trying and developing recipes of various dishes of clean whole food cooking. In his cooking adventures, he has learned many different diet types including Mediterranean, vegan, vegetarian, paleo, keto, autoimmune protocol, and many others. Through the years, Dr. Munoz has learned the importance of food in maintaining health in himself and his family as well as the patients he cares for. One of his primary goals in medicine is to educate patients of the importance of dietary choices in optimizing their health. One of his favorite quotes from Hippocrates tells how this important fact of health was known 2400 years ago: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
Knowing the importance of food, as well as exercise and many other factors that impacts our health, Dr. Munoz has shifted his paradigm of his approach to patients. He has taken a special interest in preventative medicine in helping patients to prevent disease to avoid chronic illness. He has completed specialized courses in evaluating and treating patients by seeking out and treating the root cause or causes of their ailments. With this approach, patients may be able to avoid chronic illnesses, medications, and in some cases, even surgery.
As he continues to learn and expand his knowledge and experience in medicine, Dr. Munoz is looking forward to helping each patient achieve their best health possible.
