Our Providers

Marcelo Brito, MD

Marcelo Brito is a family medicine physician with a passion for preventive medicine and endocrine/metabolic disorders. Early on, Dr. Brito knew that he wanted to make a difference in people’s lives.

As a doctor with over 10 years of experience, Dr. Brito is always willing to go the extra mile to help his patients achieve their health goals. He appreciates the impact that a healthcare provider can make in a person’s life by simply listening to their concerns and offering a helping hand.
When he is not seeing patients Dr. Brito enjoys hiking, playing soccer, kayaking and spending time with his children. Although Dr. Brito did not grow up in the DFW area, he enjoys Texas’ warm weather and looks forward to helping new patients in the Denton community. Dr. Brito is also bi-lingual in Spanish and English and sees Spanish-speaking patients.
