USMD Adds Four Physicians To Support Growing Healthcare Needs Of Communities And Patients

USMD Holdings, Inc. ( NASDAQ: USMD), a physician-led integrated healthcare system, announced today that four new physicians — Karen Klatte, M.D.; Aungel Evans, M.D.; Robin Johnston, M.D.; and Ayesha Khan, D.O. — have joined USMD Affiliated Services. These new physicians have been added to support the growing healthcare needs of the communities USMD serves.

“I am very pleased to welcome these four physicians to USMD,” said John House, M.D., chairman and chief executive officer of USMD Holdings. “The DFW area is growing rapidly. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Dallas ranks seventh on the list of cities with the largest population increases, and Fort Worth ranks tenth. Adding these physicians will allow USMD to continue providing our patients with high-quality, affordable and personalized medical care.”

Dr. Klatte, a cardiologist, has joined USMD at its Midlothian location. Adding a second cardiologist to USMD’s growing network of physicians was necessary since heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death worldwide.

Dr. Evans and Dr. Johnston will join USMD’s team of obstetrics and gynecology physicians, bringing the total number of OB/GYNs at USMD to 34. Dr. Khan will join USMD as a family practice physician, bringing the total number of family practitioners at USMD to 26.
