“While doing my medical training, I realized the high incidence and prevalence of kidney disease in disadvantaged populations, particularly in the Hispanic population. I faced many challenges and witnessed a poor quality of life in dialysis patients. Therefore, I made it my goal to provide hope and better quality of life in renal patients in the Rio Grande Valley,” said Dr. Valdes. 

The multidisciplinary team of physicians, surgeons, pharmacists, social workers, and other healthcare providers at DHR Health Transplant Institute provide specialized and compassionate care for patients with kidney, liver, and pancreatic disorders. As the only CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) and UNOS (United Network for Organ Sharing) certified kidney transplant center in the Rio Grande Valley, the transplant team provides patients with the comprehensive care they need for a new chance at life. 

Dr. Valdes is accepting new patients. His office is located in McAllen at the DHR Health Medical Tower, 1100 E. Dove Avenue, 2nd Floor. To make an appointment, please call (956) 362-5433.
