New BCMS Phone App

The New BCMS Membership Phone App is Here!


This new BCMS Phone App makes available to every BCMS physician the really useful information about BCMS including leadership, calendar, staff, maps, how to contact other docs, etc. You can call, text and email leadership, staff and other physicians directly from the app.


You can download the app from your phone’s app store. The app is there now and it’s free. Just type in Bexar County Medical Society. You will recognize the logo when you see it. As time goes on, we will be adding features to the app and we are open to any suggestions for changes or additions you might have.


Also, when you download the app, please check your contact information on DocBookMD to make sure it’s correct (once you’ve logged in the first time to DocBookMD, you won’t have to enter log-in information again). If your information on DocBookMD is not correct, send an email to the Membership Director, Brissa Vela, (you can use the app to do this) and she will make sure your information gets updated.


We hope you enjoy this new app. It is a lot easier than navigating a website or looking something up in a book. To our physicians, we thank you for being members of the Bexar County Medical Society, and to our supporters we extend a special thanks for your contributions to the field of medicine.
