Sandra Maerzacker, MD

Hello, my name is Sandra Maerzacker and I am a graduate of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine. My path to becoming an MD is a little different than most.


I went to college at Northwestern University as an international student. After graduating summa cum laude with a BS in Communication Sciences and Disorders I was accepted into the Feinberg School of Medicine through their highly competitive early admissions process: NUPSP. After completing my first two years of medical school at Feinberg in Chicago I transferred to Texas Tech for family reasons. I have been involved with advising premedical students both in Chicago and Lubbock. Furthermore I have interviewed prospective students and sat on selection committees. 

I completed a residency in pediatrics at UTMB and went on to serve as a chief resident. In this role, I also served as a member of the resident selection committee. I now practice as a general pediatrician.


I enjoy working with premedical and early decision students and am eager to advise and help the next generation of physicians.


Neil Doctor, MD

Hi, my name is Neil Doctor, and that really is my last name! A little about myself: I was born in Chicago, lived most of my life in Midland, went to undergrad at Northwestern University where I majored in biomedical engineering, and am a graduate of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine. 

I completed a residency in anesthesiology at UTMB and further went on to do an interventional pain fellowship at Texas Tech. I currently practice as an interventional pain physician. 


I was a reapplicant to medical school and was accepted my second cycle after having gone through both the AMCAS and TMDSAS systems. I have participated in interviewing new students and have been involved with selection committees. I am always excited to help premedical and non-traditional students in attaining placement into medical school.
