Saving Patients’ Lives

Dr. Klem Katrina

Local Cardiologist & LifeVest are Life-Savers for Romayor, TX Woman

In 2015, Katrinia Brunson realized something was wrong. She was suddenly tired all the time, regardless of the amount of sleep she obtained. She would experience dizzy spells where she felt like she was about to pass out. She had an unexplained weight gain and her legs would swell. It got to the point where she could no longer tend to the 15 head of cattle on her family’s 17 acres just outside of Romayor, Texas, the tiny town just north of Houston where she had spent almost all of her life. She was only 43 years old.
