President of Philippine Association of Beaumont Texas

Dr. Andro Pol Camesa, PT, DPT

President 2022-2024

Building Community and a Bright Future Together

I am Andro Pol Suarez Camesa, born and raised in the Philippines from the historic city of Imus, Cavite. I am a doctor of Physical Therapy and happily married to my lovely wife Kriszel Gatdula-Camesa. When I’m not seeing patients in the hospital, my wife and I enjoy traveling, exploring different cultures through food, and soaking in nature through hiking, biking and lounging at the beach. We are hoping to grow our family surrounded by Filipino food, karaoke, “mano po” and “opo”, bayanihan, simbang gabi and the warm smiles of ates & kuyas / titos & titas / lolos & lolas who are bonded not necessarily by blood, but a strong sense of community.


As the current president of the Philippine Association of Beaumont Texas (PABT), it is my personal mission to unite the Filipino community here in Southeast Texas and create a Filipino-infused home away from home. Along with the present PABT officers, our team is updating our online platform to expand our reach to fellow Pinoys in the area.


I humbly invite everyone to join us. Say hello in one of our upcoming events, mingle and get involved. Extend your support by volunteering your time in our projects, becoming a member or offering a donation. Together, we can make a positive impact for the golden triangle of Southeast Texas. Let’s work hand in hand to build a stronger and more vibrant community for all.
