A Better & More Personalized Approach To Your Health in Austin, TX

 

 

At Austin Medical Partners, we provide direct primary care and concierge medicine services to patients in Austin, Texas. Primary care is provided exclusively via a membership-based practice model and requires enrollment to become a member. Our clinic is built on a foundation of time with your doctor and highly personalized care. We emphasize a proactive and preventative approach to health and wellness and only see primary care patients as part of our membership model.
