Pain Management Physicians Treating Residents of Van, TX
Van, Texas is a small city located between Dallas and Tyler. School-aged children living in the city attend Van Independent School District, and many college-aged young adults attend Tyler Junior College if they decide to stay close to home. Because of the city’s small size and limited jobs, many workers must commute each work day to larger cities, such as Canton and Tyler, in order to provide for their families.
