South Park and the Sunnyside Area are known and often times categorized African American communities that lack the essentials that a thriving neighborhood needs.
Fresh market grocery stores, and clinics that are affordable are in high demand. Dr. Bernadette Iguh, R.N., M.D. saw the need and prayed to God for the chance to bring health to the African American community and so she did.
July 12, 2014, Dr. Iguh held a lavish Grand Opening Ceremony for Cullen Family Practice Clinic 7710 Cullen Blvd Houston Texas 77051. As a practicing Registered Nurse (R.N.) for 14 years, Dr. Iguh believed in quality health care and with a spiritual touch.
“Bernadette had her own ideas on how to do treatments so she went on to medical school. She became a doctor,” said a close friend and colleague of Dr. Iguh.
Many people stood up and spoke on the quality of person and work that she represented and what a blessing she would be to the South Park and Sunnyside communities.
Dr. Iguh has practiced as a Medical Doctor (M.D.) since 2005. She saw the need in the particular area and vetted for a place to open shop.
“I am very familiar with this community, I worked in the South Park area for five years” said Dr. Iguh. “I have donated services to the community and I felt the need to be here.”
Her community service now extend beyond food giveaways as Cullen Family Practice will be open Monday through Friday 9 am- 6pm and on Saturdays by appointment only.
Dr. Iguh accepts all types of insurance.
Inside the clinic there are six exam rooms and an immunization room. It is a family medicine clinic that treats pediatric to geriatric patients.
Iguh’s husband and children are a part of her working environment as her husband helped restructure the building to become a clinic and her daughter is a nurse.
“This use to be a feed house for animals, now it is a place of health for humans,” said Dr. Iguh’s husband.
Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee read a proclamation before the ribbon cutting and dignitaries from Africa flew all the way to South Park Houston, TX to celebrate the opening of Cullen Family Practice.
