Dr. Katie Keller is a Board Certified Family Medicine Physician, and has been practicing holistic primary care in Austin, Texas for nearly a decade. She grew up in the Midwest and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences at Western Michigan University. Gradually moving her way more south, she attended Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Blacksburg, Virginia and then completed her residency at Bay Area Medical Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. She has since furthered her training with the Institute for Functional Medicine, and continually aims to help her patients get to the root of the problem, as well as educates on prevention to help her patients maintain optimal wellness.
Dr. Keller has always been passionate in her studies about using a whole person approach. She chose Osteopathic medical school for their inherent philosophy that the body has the ability to heal itself, when given the right conditions. She believes that nutrition, movement, stress management, and mindfulness make up the foundation of healing. Additionally, she is experienced with natural thyroid management and bio-identical hormone therapy.
Dr. Keller lives in Austin with her husband, daughter, and fluffy german shepherd. When she’s not caring for her patients, Dr. Keller enjoys cooking, running the trails, dancing, yoga, and live music.
