Meet Our Nurse Practitioners
At Texas Heart & Vascular Specialists we are committed to providing a personal and caring approach to our patients. Our experienced nurse practitioners help us better serve our patients.
Mr. Erik Huezo was born and raised in Houston, attending Westside High School and Strake Jesuit College Prep. He attended The University of Texas Medical Branch where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing. Following graduation, he began his nursing career in the Coronary Care Unit at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital. Throughout the years, he rose through the ranks of nursing becoming a charge nurse, gaining certifications, and was awarded the prestigious Nurse of the Year award. After gaining years of bedside experience, he attended the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston where he graduated with a Masters of Science degree in Acute Care Nurse Practitioner.
Being an intensive care nurse that specialized in cardiology, it was only natural for Erik to transition to a role with a similar specialty. Erik joined Texas Heart and Vascular Specialists to further gain knowledge and experience to better serve patients by using a combination of medicine and nursing care to provide the highest level of care that patients and their families deserve.
Erik is an avid baseball fan. He spends his free time eating at local restaurants, playing with his two dogs, and watching the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Ballpark.
