Good General Practice MD's?

I'm looking for a new Dr. - been seeing one in the "city" and need to look for someone local - any recommendations?

My family uses Dr. Kingston in Burnet. He's with Scott and White and he's taken good care of us, very personable as well.

Dr. Amy Van Dorfy, she saved my Mom's life. I even stopped driving to Austin for a wonderful doctor to use Ms. Amy. A good listener and sympathetic to your needs.

I totally agree, Dr.Van Dorfy (Live Oak Medicine) has been my doctor for years and I would definitely recommend her! I have heard very good things about Dr.Kingston as well (if you don't mind driving to Burnet).

I really like Dr. Johns at Liveoak practice. I wanted Dr. Gosselink, but he no longer takes Medicare.

I whole heartedly agree that Dr. Jules Madrigal and her staff are the absolute BEST around! They make you feel so comfortable and really care for their patients! Dr. Amy Offutt at Bella Medical Spa would be a close second vote for me!

Thank you all for the help - I heard Dr. Madrigal doesn't accept insurance, which is doesn't work for me.

Dr. McCurdy in Marble Falls is great. Don't know if he takes new patients but he does accept insurance.

It's true Dr Madrigal does not accept insurance. However, her office will print out the paperwork in the right way so you can file your own insurance claims. Means that the cost of her services is less because she doesn't have to hire an employee to handle insurance claims and receipts, and she doesn't have to carry the fees out of her own pocket till she gets paid.

If you don't mind me asking how much does Dr. Madrigal charge for a routine office visit?

Dr. Paul Carstens at Hoerster Clinic in Marble Falls is a very caring person, which translates into a great doctor. I recommend him.

Yeah Carstens is great. I like him because he will read your whole chart before talking to you and is very detailed like it is his personal mission to find your problem and fix it. Hard to find doctors like him.
