Meet Our Doctors
SUSAN FRENZEL, M.D.
Dr. Frenzel is a native Houstonian and enjoys practicing in a free-standing ER because of the personalized care she can give to each patient. She went to medical school at McGovern Medical School and completed her residency at the McGovern Emergency Medicine Residency Program. She enjoys trying new restaurants, going to museums and attending sporting events with family. The Astros, Rice Owls Baseball and Cougar Basketball are among some of her favorites.
TERRY J. LETSINGER, M.D., F.A.C.E.P.
As an athlete himself, Dr. Letsinger is a favorite among our high school and college students. While musculoskeletal and long bone injuries are his bread and butter given his extensive knowledge of human anatomy, having trained at both the University of Cincinnati and Scott and White, there is nothing he can’t diagnose and treat. A great doctor with a great talent in caring for patients and their families with the compassion and warmth you’d expect from a big teddy bear like him.
ANDREW S. BUTLER, M.D. MEDICAL DIRECTOR
Dr. Butler trained at University of Cincinnati’s prestigious emergency medicine residency program and with almost a decade of experience as a practicing ER board-certified doctor, Dr. Butler is fully prepared to handle anything that comes through our doors. His friendly smile and gentle demeanor put every patient completely at ease.
RICK G. LORENTZ, M.D.
Always steady as a rock, there is no emergency situation that rattles Dr. Lorentz. His straight to business, no-nonsense clinical style and friendly bedside manner match his abilities to keep a calm and level head during the chaos of the emergency room. With tens of thousands of hours in the ER and a background in trauma surgery, Dr. Lorentz’s vast clinical skills are a valuable asset to America’s ER.
For children or the young at heart, our Magnolia & Woodlands location features a soothing underwater themed pediatric room featuring our friendly ER octopus named Bubbles.

As the summer nears its end and local stores stock up on school supplies, what will the 2020-21 school year look like? There are so many questions and confusion about going back to school this year, we decided to go directly to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and find out the real answers. Here’s what we found out.
An increasing number of doctor visits are caused by what some are calling zoom fatigue or zoom exhaustion. My most recent visit to the doctor showed that this fatigue and stress caused by communicating largely by technology has exacerbated my fibromyalgia symptoms, which in turn increases depression and anxiety. In fact, people all over the world are suffering the effects of not being able to meet face-to-face, the communication method most suited to humans.
“Summertime, and the livin’ is easy…” The music plays softly on the old turntable, conjuring up the sound of Ella Fitzgerald and easy jazz. Takes you back, all the way to 1934, when George Gershwin wrote the classic song for “Porgy and Bess.” Summertime was lazy back then—the heat made everyone move slower. No air conditioning, but no coronavirus, either!
If an alien were to visit the Earth, it might at first think that since men are generally larger and stronger than women, males must be the dominant sex. In fact, plenty of humans think that, too. But does the science of medicine back that up? Since our focus is on the novel coronavirus dubbed COVID-19, we want to take a look at why it seems to have a worse effect on men—whose physical prowess should give them more protection—than on women.
Now that parts of the country are beginning to open up after weeks of shutdown, spikes in Covid-19 cases and deaths are making people fearful. It’s important to know that the incubation period for the novel coronavirus is 2-14 days, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services.
Everyone is tired of the confinement that has slowed the spread of Covid-19, but some people have it tougher than others. This group of people are America’s Veterans of war. Especially those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. This already under-served segment of our society has unique needs that are difficult to address during the pandemic.
