Enrique “Ricky” Quiambao, RN, FNP-C, is a certified family nurse practitioner who sees patients of all ages in Quitman. He has developed a style of care built on trust. “I like to spend time talking with patients so they have the information necessary to make better healthcare decisions. It’s not about the provider telling the patient what to do. We have to work together as a team.”
After working as a registered nurse, he decided to further his education and become a certified family nurse practitioner. “I wanted the opportunity to form lifelong relationships with patients and be more involved with clinical decisions.”
A longtime resident of East Texas, Quiambao is committed to the community. “I look forward to providing the people of East Texas with excellent healthcare for years to come.”
Enrique also conducts Department of Transportation (DOT) Physical Exams.

Enrique is a very kind, caring, listen to you kind of person. If he is not sure, he will send you to someone that can answer your questions. He stays on top of things that have to do with your care. Takes his time with you, which I really appreciate.

Mr. Quiambao is caring, thorough, friendly, gifted, highly intelligent once you get through his office staff, My experience was that they reported his day was fully booked but did not offer to help me with my dental infection. I was in pain for 3 days before I got to see him.

He may not be an M.D. but he is the best "general practitioner" I have been to in 15 years.
