Professional Background

Dr. Yang Zhou earned his medical degree in 2016 at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He completed his Internal Medicine residency training at Baylor College of Medicine in 2019. He joined Kelsey-Seybold in August 2019 as an Internal Medicine hospitalist and cares for hospitalized patients.

Fun Facts

Dr. Zhou has hiked through mountain caverns in China. He says his guilty pleasure is eating tortilla chips with any type of dip.  

​In the hospital setting, I believe in addressing the active issues, but more importantly, I believe in finding the underlying reason that led to the hospitalization in order to implement changes to prevent future events. I view my role as a guide and educator, and I aim to empower my patients to understand and take control of their health.
