Jordan Pastorek, M.D.

Internal Medicine

Dr. Jordan Pastorek received his Doctor of Medicine from Louisiana State University, Health Science Center, in New Orleans. He is board certified in Internal Medicine. He is currently the Supervising Physician at The POTS Treatment Center and Health and Behavioral Center. Dr. Pastorek has a passion for Preventative Medicine.

His interest in Preventative Medicine began when he attended Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training through the Air Force. After Dr. Pastorek was awarded his Air Force Pilot Wings, he returned to finish his last few months of residency training. During that time, he was first exposed to Preventative Medicine, when he earned his Air Force Flight Surgeon Wings at the Aerospace Medicine Primary Course at Brooks City-Base, San Antonio. He also works as an Internal Medicine Hospitalist in Plano, Texas.

As the Supervising Physician, Dr. Pastorek reviews the patient’s medical history initially and delegates the alternative treatment plan to our team of providers. He monitors patient progress and consults with Dr. Kyprianou, Dr. Townsend and our counselor Andrea Baum, making any additional recommendations needed.
