Dr. Geetinder Goyal is the Founder and CEO of First Primary Care. He studied medicine for over a decade, and then realized—our healthcare system really only takes care of the sick and no one is looking out for a patient’s overall health and well being. And that was kind of a bummer. So, he started First Primary Care to turn the system upside down and provide patients with genuine healthcare and not just “sick care”.
Dr. Goyal attended medical school at the Government Medical College in Chandigarh, India. Following that, he completed his residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Texas Medical Branch – Galveston. Dr. Goyal then went on to Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, CT where his fellowship was in Pulmonary Medicine and Critical Care Medicine.
In addition to his work at First Primary Care, Dr. Goyal serves as the President of the Houston Chapter of the Free Market Medical Association.
When he is not caring for his patients, Dr. Goyal is an avid runner, loves watching sports, and spending time with his wife, Dr. Le Vo, and their two young daughters.
Dr. Goyal’s practice uses a team approach for your healthcare. He works with Peter Del Buono, FNP-C and Tehemeena Dhukka, FNP-C.
Peter Del Buono has been a part of the First Primary Care team since day one. His path into medicine began with a passion for physical activity and an interest in human physiology. He began with an undergraduate degree in exercise physiology and worked as a Division I collegiate strength and conditioning coach while pursuing a masters degree in sports psychology. After seeing friends and loved ones struggle with maintaining their health, his interest shifted from elite athletes to helping everyday people live their healthiest lives.
Peter then began a fifteen-year transition from a peak performance specialist to a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). He obtained his BSC in Fitness and Human Performance from the University of Houston Clear Lake. He then went to the University of Texas Medical Branch for his Bachelor of Science, Nursing as well as his Masters of Science, Nursing.
As Peter puts it, becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner was the best choice that he’s ever made; it’s rewarding and enjoyable to be a key part of people’s efforts to achieve and maintain better health.
In his free time, Peter enjoys trying new restaurants around the Houston area and traveling.
Tehemeena is a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) who is passionate about high quality, holistic care. She is keen on building strong patient-provider relationships that allow her to understand the backgrounds, needs, interests and healthcare goals of her patients, which help her in customizing the care. As a provider she also aims to empower people with the knowledge and resources to proactively make better decisions regarding their health so they can have happy and healthy lives.
In addition to her work as a FNP, she serves as a member of the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. Whenever she’s not busy providing care (and loving it), she enjoys traveling, skiing, exercising, spending time with family and friends, and volunteering with various local organizations.
