Today we sit down with Dr. Roxana Rhodes MD, a wonderful and compassionate Concierge Medicine Physician serving the Central Austin, Texas area. We also discuss the importance of incorporating Precision Medicine and Genomic Health tools into her practice in today’s interview.
“The name of the practice reflects my core belief that the best way to achieve lifelong wellness is to form a strong partnership between doctor and patient. To give you some of my background, I grew up a 3rd generation Texas physician, and have always been strongly attracted to the medical profession. My medical training includes an undergraduate degree from Texas A&M, a medical degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch, and residency training with the Yale School of Medicine in Danbury, Connecticut, where I was chief resident.”
Having been the recipient of years of training, she also believes strongly in her responsibility to mentor the next generation of health providers. Since she is an Assistant Professor for the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB), you will almost always see a physician in training at her office. Not only do they get some real world experience but her practice also gains from their knowledge and enthusiasm.
She has been honored to receive UTMB’s “Top Doc” Award twice in her career.
“As an Internist, I am specialized around the treatment of adult disease, including chronic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Precision Medicine and Genomic Health is integrated into my practice. I offer a range of services including annual physical exams, suturing, ingrown toenail removal, well woman exam, mole removal, ECG, and dermabrasion. We use a state of the art Electronic Medical Records system, and maintain a patient web portal so you can always have access to your records and test results.”
