Austin Integrative Pediatrics: view website for address and times (primarily a consulting practice)
I am a Pediatrician who has had a private practice in Elgin, TX (26 miles east of Austin) since 2003. I am Board Certified in Pediatrics, and completed an integrative medicine fellowship at the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine under the directorship of Dr. Andrew Weil. I integrate conventional medicine with complementary treatment options in my primary practice, and take a holistic approach to wellness and healing. I have a consulting practice in Austin, just 2 half days a week, in which I am able to take a more thorough integrative approach utilizing longer appointment times and more extensive counseling and research. This practice is ideal for patients who are struggling with a conventional medicine model, or with more complex or chronic issues, who feel that they are not being well served in their traditional practices. Additionally, I am able to see a limited number of patients for general healthcare utilizing fee for service or the membership model. Weekend hours or house calls are options for established patients in some circumstances. However, I am not available for urgent same day sick visits at the Austin location.
I have a special interest in botanical medicine, obesity, mood and behavior problems and their links to gut health, and ADHD.
I love running, riding my horses, (even though I am still scared and probably need to do a work for that), gardening, movies, and spending time with friends. I love to travel, and wish for more time for that. I am married with one daughter and one grandson.
