Adam Suchecki P.A.


  • Indiana University: B.S. in Management from Kelley School of Business
  • Nova Southeastern University: Master’s of Physician Assistant Studies

After graduating from business school, I began my career as an orthopedic sales consultant for Smith & Nephew Inc. While working in the operating room daily in both trauma and total reconstructive cases, I developed a strong interest in surgery and decided to attend PA school. Upon graduation, I practiced in neurosurgery in Tampa, FL for 2 years and am now excited to be back in the orthopedic field working for Dr. Fox and the Fox Team.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Alex, and daughter, Avery, attending church, running, cycling, swimming and watching Indiana Hoosier sports.

 Mari Gutierrez, Nurse Project Manager

Mari GutierrezHaving lived in Houston for a few years, I returned to my native San Antonio to pursue my nursing career. I knew I wanted to become a nurse after participating in the delivery of my niece, 19 years ago. I have worked in labor & delivery and skilled nursing. From 2004 to 2011 I worked as an orthopaedic surgical nurse. I find it very rewarding helping people regain their active lives. I especially enjoy working with Dr. Wilcox as he has an abundance of knowledge and is so eager to share that knowledge both with me and his patients. I am a member of the National Association of Professional Women. On my free time I enjoy spending time in the Texas Hill Country and love cooking. I listen to all genres of music and try to take every opportunity to go horseback riding as I believe that any time spent in a saddle, is never wasted time. Dr. Wilcox and I look forward to meeting and taking care of your orthopaedic needs.

Valerie Andrew, MA - San Antonio, TX

"I have been a registered medical assistant for 12 years, 10 of which have been in Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine. I feel that this is my field of passion and I value the knowledge and experience I have gained over the years. This allows me to confidently educate my patients.  Currently, I work with Dr. Simon as a back office clinic assistant providing direct patient care and coordinating surgery. When I am not working, my time is spent with my family and loving dogs. My three sons play year-round football and basketball, so I really enjoy watching them compete and having orthopedic experience gives me peace of mind when it comes to their injuries."

"Having accumulated 15+ years of experience in the medical field, I have spent the last seven years as clinic assistant. I work hand-in-hand caring for patients. The knowledge I have acquired from him provides me with the skills necessary to assist our patients with the recovery process, ranging from arthritic pain to the postoperative patient recovering from total joint replacement. I thoroughly enjoy caring for people and bring a very friendly and enthusiastic attitude to Northeast Orthopaedics. When not working, I volunteer at St. Gerard’s Catholic Church and enjoy the cultural experiences San Antonio has to offer with my family."

“It’s been a year since Mom’s surgery, and I wanted to send some pictures to show you how great she’s doing. In October, she went to Ft. Walton Beach, FL , with my brother and sister-in-law. She truly enjoyed herself. In December, she and I flew to Seattle, WA, to visit our cousins.
