Mark Moran failed to make his seventh grade basketball team at Hobby Middle school. He will be the first to say this was a blessing in disguise. The valuable lesson he learned was perseverance. And after working tirelessly over the next year, he earned his place as a starting basketball player at Hobby Middle School and Clark High School for the rest of his basketball career. He even became the Clark High School Team captain and was selected for All-District and All-City teams. He turned his failure into success. And carried this perseverance through college, graduate school, and medical school.
Mark attended Adams Hill Elementary for three years before moving to Locke Hill Elementary. He then went to Hobby Middle School and finished his Northside education at Clark High School. In addition to basketball, Mark was Student Council Vice President, a member of both Mu Alpha Theta and National Honor Society, and was voted Best All Around male and Homecoming King by his classmates.
Today, Dr. Mark Moran practices Pain Management and is the acting President of Consultants in Pain Medicine, PA. He received his undergraduate degree from Southwestern University before obtaining his graduate degree in Biochemistry. He attended the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio for his medical degree. He completed his residency in Anesthesiology and then was fellowship trained in Pain Management and Penn State. Mark believes in a multifactorial approach to treating his patients and encourages all of them to be "active participants, instead of passive recipients" in their health care.
Mark and his wife Melissa, whom he met in the fourth grade at Locke Hill, are proud parents of two children, Emily and Ethan. Both children attend Northside schools. Mark sits on the board of directors for Geneus Health and Kalypso Wellness, two national businesses for which he is also a founder. In his spare time, Mark enjoys basketball, tennis, coaching and spending time with his children.
