Biography

     Dr. Hale was born in Monroe, Louisiana, but lived in Colorado while his father battled (and defeated) cancer before finally moving to Dallas, Texas.  His father's illness had a lasting impact on his desire to practice medicine.   During his medical school years, structural cardiology piqued his interest after his beloved wife underwent valvular heart surgery.  

      Dr. Hale thrives on educating his patients and improving their quality of life.  He lives in Texarkana with his wife and two children.  A true outdoorsman, he loves to hunt, fish, and play golf.
