Dr. Payne, after completing his medicine degree in California, returned to Texas to begin training in general surgery at Texas Tech University Health Science Center, El Paso. During Dr. Payne’s time in El Paso, he traveled several times to Juarez Mexico to treat underserved children with cleft lip and palate deformities. This experience further confirmed his passion to pursue craniofacial and plastic surgery.
After completing his chief year of surgery training, Dr. Payne was accepted to the University of Texas at Houston to complete plastic surgery training. During his two years in Houston he learned about the need for helping children born with craniofacial deformities in the Houston area. Dr. Payne finished an additional year of training in Dallas at Medical City Hospital in the subspecialty of craniofacial surgery. During his time in Dallas continued participating in humanitarian mission trips to India and Zimbabwe to treat children with cleft and craniofacial deformities.
Dr. Payne and his staff are so genuinely kind and extremely helpful. I had to have surgery on my thumb in January, Dr. Payne was very thorough on the procedure and did a wonderful job. (Minimal scaring) Anything I ever needed, questions / concerns, the ladies in the office were always so helpful. Always remembered me every time I had to come into the office, worked with my schedule to squeeze me in on busy days. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars. THEY TRULY ARE WONDERFUL.
Thank you for making this decision one I am delighted I followed through on. I really am pleased with the results and am considering one or two more surgeries.
