Best Physician, Dr. Ghassan Fanous

Best Nurse, Laura Weathers



Dr. Ghassan Fanous graduated from Richardson High School and received a biology degree from Baylor University. In 1991, Dr. Fanous received his M.D. from The University of Texas Medical School in Houston. He then completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology in Memphis, Tennessee. Dr. Fanous returned to Houston, Texas, in 1995 to join Kelsey-Seybold, a major multi-specialty group in Houston and the surrounding communities. Here he built a large and successful practice and was known for his attentive and nurturing style; however, he longed to find a community where he could build his own practice.

After searching for over a year, Dr. Fanous moved to Odessa, Texas. In Odessa, he found a community where he could give his patients the time and attention they deserved, one where his family could thrive as well as serve. He enjoys privileges at both ORMC and MCH. He has served on the board of the Permian Basin Health Network. He is most proud of the simple achievements of every day practice: helping women to bring new life into the world and being in a partner in their healthcare.

Dr. Fanous married Jennie Stinebaugh in 1991. They are raising five children: Erika, Luke, Mark, John Paul, and Matthew Jude. They are actively involved in their church, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, and in serving on various charitable boards.
