A PERSONAL NOTE FROM DR. ASANA
Greetings! My name is Juliette Asana. I am originally from Cameroon, Africa but moved to Katy, Texas in 2004 and Texas has been home ever since. I received my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, TX and earned my Doctor of Medicine from St, George’s University in Grenada, West Indies. I have traveled across the country for my clinical rotations in different hospitals and outpatient settings and have had the privilege of taking care of patients from diverse backgrounds and cultures, mainly underserved communities.
Coming from Cameroon, the importance of quality primary care and health outcomes in the community is near and dear to my heart. I have a keen interest in compassionate, understanding care for patients who may feel underserved. I am happy to be at UTMB Health in Galveston and be a part of this Family Medicine program. Not only am I close to my fiancé and my family, I also get the support of faculty, staff and co-residents, and I get to be trained at a world renowned institution exposed to a diverse variety of patients and pathologies.
I have a special interest in dermatology and preventative medicine and outside of medicine, I love Pilates, trying new food, spending time with my fiancé and family, and traveling with my friends.
