Daniel Brudnak, M.D., FAAFP, DABMA
Dr Dan has been making his way to Gorman since fifth grade. That’s
when he decided to be a doctor in order to take care of a community.
He graduated from University of Texas Health Science Center at
Houston on a scholarship from the United States Air Force in 1991.
Before he graduated he was selected as one of two exchange students
to the Republic of Chile. Dr Red Duke was the faculty member that
presented him his doctoral cape at graduation. Upon graduation he
was stationed at Patrick Air Force Base and was a Flight Surgeon in
Space Command supporting the Space Shuttle missions, Combat
Search and Rescue missions, and Atlas, Delta and Titan missile launch
After he left the Air Force he opened a family practice in Corpus
Christi, TX and was asked to be the team physician for a Professional
ice hockey team, the Ice Rays which he did in addition to his practice.
(…Ice hockey in Corpus Christi?) He stayed in the Air Force Reserve as
the Chief of Aerospace Medicine for his Reserve Squadron in Florida
for a year until he transferred to the 307th RED HORSE Squadron in
San Antonio as their Flight Surgeon.
Dr Dan has two board certifications. He is a Fellow of the American
Academy of Family Practice (FAAFP), which is an advanced
certification in Family Practice, and he is one of the first 70 doctors in
the world to be board certified in Medical Acupuncture (DABMA). Dr
Dan used his Acupuncture extensively in the Air Force on the Space
operations crews and Combat Rescue pilots and crews, but he insists
that acupuncture is only one of the many tools he uses to help his
patients stay healthy. If you don’t like needles he won’t stick you.
Dr. Dan is also Advanced Trauma Life Support Certified (ATLS), an
instructor in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), a CPR instructor,
the medical director of Girling Hospice, and the medical director of
Gorman, Cisco, and Olden Volunteer Fire Depts as well as being a first
responder for Gorman where he goes out on ambulance related calls.
