Peter Del Buono has been a part of the First Primary Care team since day one. His path into medicine began with a passion for physical activity and an interest in human physiology. He began with an undergraduate degree in exercise physiology and worked as a Division I collegiate strength and conditioning coach while pursuing a masters degree in sports psychology. After seeing friends and loved ones struggle with maintaining their health, his interest shifted from elite athletes to helping everyday people live their healthiest lives.
Peter then began a fifteen-year transition from a peak performance specialist to a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). He obtained his BSC in Fitness and Human Performance from the University of Houston Clear Lake. He then went to the University of Texas Medical Branch for his Bachelor of Science, Nursing as well as his Masters of Science, Nursing.
As Peter puts it, becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner was the best choice that he’s ever made; it’s rewarding and enjoyable to be a key part of people’s efforts to achieve and maintain better health.
In his free time, Peter enjoys trying new restaurants around the Houston area and traveling.
