About Us

Mell Gutarra MD


Dr. Gutarra decided to pursue a Rheumatology fellowship after his Internal Medicine training due to the challenge the specialty presents. It is one of the last pure clinical fields in medicine relying on a good clinical history and physical exam of the patient. Rheumatology is a field that allows the physician to see and evaluate complex cases in patients who may have been waiting for a diagnosis for years and providing long awaited answers for them. “Above all, it allows me to provide relief to one of the most common but insidious complaints… chronic pain.”

Dr. Gutarra received his medical degree from Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia in 2003. The highest rated and very prestigious medical school in Peru.
He did his internship and residency training in Internal Medicine at Texas Tech University Health Science Center at El Paso in 2012. Then Dr Gutarra went to Indianapolis to do his Fellowship in Rheumatology at Indiana University in 2014.
