The story of MDI Prep began in 1986 with a homeless teen trying to figure out his path in life. I was 17 years old and sleeping on concrete. There were three things constant in my life and that was GOD, family, and my love for education. I took these things and after graduating high school, went to college and received a degree in science. After receiving my bachelor’s degree, I became a police officer in the state of Texas, while still having a dream of becoming a doctor. Education was always the center of my attention, and it was this that guided me to UT Houston Medical School.

After receiving my medical degree, I started the MDI Prep program in 2008 to help students who suffered from Test Anxiety. Through my interaction with over 1000 students, I realized that much of the Test Anxiety could be cured with solid study schedules and proven test taken strategies. In 2010, the MDI Prep Corp began our mission to change the lives of each student we met. Our goal is always to help students reach their dreams with the least amount of stress possible.
I am happy to report that since 2010, MDI Prep has helped over 875 students become Physicians, Dentists and Pharmacist. Our work is not nearly complete, and we have now expanded our reach into other countries. We have partners in India, Mexico, Egypt, Europe and throughout South America. While we continue to grow and touch the lives of students, our mission remains the same “Help each MDI Prep student reach their goal, while providing the type of environment they will look forward to giving back to in the future”.
We look forward to serving you are someone you know as they go after their dreams. Best wishes,
Dr. Sutton
