About Dr. Turbay



Dr. Turbay is a native of Barranquilla, Colombia and attended medical school in Bogota, Colombia where he graduated first in his class and then won a national prize for the best medical student in the country.  This honor earned him a scholarship to Harvard, where he did basic research for five years in Molecular Biology and Genetics.  After learning English and contributing to determine how the cardiac cells differentiate and become mature, he completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Boston University.  He trained at both Mass General Hospital at Harvard and Baylor College of Medicine in Houston for his Cardiology Fellowship with special emphasis on Nuclear Cardiology and Heart Failure.


Currently, Dr. Turbay has a solo-practice in General Cardiology in El Paso, Texas.  As one of a select few physicians board certified in Advanced Heart Failure in Texas, Dr. Turbay collaborates with academic centers to provide the most advanced care available for heart failure patients in the El Paso borderland region.


In his free time, Dr. Turbay plays guitar with his friends, plays tennis and enjoys hiking and biking in our nation's beautiful state and national parks while also traveling to new and interesting vacation destinations with his family.
