BHS Physicians Network continues to invest in the health of our community by welcoming Carlos Carretero, MD to our expanding network.

Dr. Carlos R. Carretero completed his medical training with New York Medical College, after attending to the Universidad Autonoma of Guadalajara, Mexico. It was a great learning experience, combining the training from Mexico and completing my last year of medical in New York City in 2001, “the contrast of both settings gave me a broader perspective in medicine, and understanding of cultural diversity, and empathy to my patients”.

After medical school he completed his residency in internal medicine with the Ponce School of Medicine, and started as a medical consultant with the Mayaguez Advance Radiotherapy Group, and opened his private medical practice providing care to the patients of the west coast of Puerto Rico. Dr. Carretero is board certified in Internal Medicine since 2005 and recertified in 2015. He relocated to San Antonio in January 2014, practicing at the Nix Medical Center until 2019. He is a dedicated Internal Medicine Physician with a proven track record of accurately diagnosing patients and providing successful treatments. He is fluent in English and Spanish.“I believe that the role of the internist is not just diagnosing and treating, but to orchestrate their medical priorities, especially with patients with multiple conditions. I have been in San Antonio for almost 6 years and love its people, their warmth, and look forward to continue on their care and have a positive impact on the community”.

Dr. Carretero is fluent in both English and Spanish.

Dr. Carretero is welcoming new patients, and accepts most insurance plans.
