Kirk is a hometown graduate of Robert E. Lee High School and TJC. In addition, he graduated from The University of Texas at Tyler in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. His passion for nursing led him to care for the acutely ill at ETMC Tyler and various other hospitals throughout East Texas until he felt God calling him to the mission field. During one of his many medical missions in Central America with Mercy Ships, he was moved to further his education in order to better serve his patients. Returning home to Tyler, he began the pursuit of a Physician Assistant degree.
Mr. Gautier graduated summa cum laude from The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, and placed in the top 3% in the nation on the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam. Mr. Gautier gives credit to the Lord for his success and desires to contribute to the skin care of East Texans. When you’re in Kirk’s care, you can see his interest in your needs, you can feel his compassion for your welfare, and you can trust his ability to make the right decisions for your health.
