May is National Stroke Awareness Month, and physicians affiliated with Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital are encouraging people to know the symptoms of a stroke and get help immediately.
“There’s a saying, ‘time is brain.’ It means that every moment counts when it comes to stroke care,” says Marco Garza, M.D., a board-certified emergency medicine physician and Medical Director of the Emergency Center at Memorial Hermann Cypress. “The faster a patient can get to a hospital and be treated, the greater the chances of a positive outcome.”
According to the American Stroke Association (ASA), stroke is the 5th leading cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States. On average, someone in the U.S. suffers a stroke every 40 seconds, someone dies of a stroke every four minutes, and nearly 800,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year. Read more ›

Bridgeland has added a new level of character to its already popular Lakeland Village Center in Cypress. While tenants continue to move into the community’s first commercial village, this new layer of Texas charm is not simply found on display inside a shop, but is an integral part of the Center’s vision.
Designed to showcase traditional small-town architecture, Lakeland Village Center now includes a series of murals and signage painted over the center’s reddish clay brick. The artwork is distressed to give it a vintage flavor, in a process that artist Anat Ronen calls a ghosting technique. It’s a new feature for the community and one that highlights the unique charm of the center. Read more ›
Bridgeland is a community built on the concept of getting outside and exploring all that it has to offer. Riding a bike is an ideal way to take in the natural beauty in Bridgeland. With that in mind, Bridgeland wants everyone to remain safe as they explore the community.
When it comes to bike safety, It’s never too early to learn the rules of the road. This important lesson was shared with Bridgeland residents earlier this month during the community’s annual picnic.
Lieutenant Mitch Hutter and Deputy Danny Stovall of Harris County Constable Precinct 5 helped the Cypress community launch the Bridgeland Bike Safety Club, designed to teach young children the rules of the road as they bicycle through the community and beyond.
As Bridgeland’s youngest residents looked on, Lt. Hutter and Deputy Stovall presented their safety program, which focused on five main precautions: Read more ›

What is your favorite thing in your career?
“Purchasing and/or selling a home can be a stressful and grueling process and is typically the biggest expense a family will ever make. The most rewarding part of my career has been guiding people through that taxing journey and fighting to make sure they are neither taken advantage of nor without proper knowledge of the process. I feel like I bring a calming approach to what can be a very nerve racking few weeks, months or sometimes years. There’s no better feeling in my industry than when a closing is complete and the client is fully satisfied with their decision and happily moved into or out of their home.” Read more ›
