Our clinicians have over 20 years of combined medical experience, with a diverse background of Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, and Lifestyle/Integrative Medicine.

As a primary care provider with a holistic approach, Lufkin Lifestyle and Family Medicine is able to diagnose and treat the patient as a whole. Holistic care acknowledges that the health of our mind, body and spirit all work together for our overall well being.

We are a full service family practice that provides a multitude of services in a comfortable, healing environment.

We offer acute care (upper respiratory infections, injuries, UTI, etc), primary care, osteopathic manipulation, IV therapy, sleep apnea testing, hormone pellet therapy, allergy testing and immunotherapy, aesthetic injections and so much more.

If you are looking for a family practice and primary care provider that is in it for the long haul, then you’ve found the right place.

We take great pride in playing a role in you living your best life.

Our philosophy is holistic with a total approach to your health, along with customized solutions to your individual health care needs.

We believe health is more than non-sickness and, therefore, place importance on mental peace and fitness, as well as physical health.

We look forward to building a lasting relationship with our patients and being a part of meeting all of your wellness goals and needs.

Schedule a visit and experience the mindset of not treating a symptom but treating a person. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Austin State University.  He attended medical school at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his residency in Emergency Medicine with Texas A&M.

He currently practices Emergency Medicine while pursuing an integrative medicine fellowship with American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.

After years of practicing Emergency Medicine and only seeing the end result in poor health choices, he decided to search for more answers and a different approach to health.

He believes traditional medicine only treats the end result and really wants to teach his patients how to be preventative with lifestyle choices.  He understands that most diseases that kill Americans are preventable and reversible with simple choices.
