Dedicated to Providing Better Healthcare
Our goal is to offer affordable health care to the entire family in a way that shows our passion for your health and our concern for your time. Modern medicine makes the patient wait for many things. You pay with your time when you wait weeks for your first visit, sit in the waiting room past your appointment start time, wait for a phone call from your doctor (if you get to talk with your doctor at all), wait for your refills, and more. Modern healthcare has become an expensive and time-consuming chore, and there’s a better way.
We’ve changed healthcare so the focus is on you.
We have changed the total number of patients we see and our scheduling parameters, ensuring that you can be seen the same or the next day. You won’t wait in the lobby, wondering when your appointment will begin. We set aside time for our physicians to return your emails, discuss your lab results, reply to your text messages, and answer every question you have.
We believe that you should receive high-quality, convenient health care from providers who care for your well being—the ones who will advocate for your health.

Meet Dr. Chris Larson
Chris Larson, D.O., Physician
Dr. Larson came to medicine after having already started a career in finance. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a business degree. After witnessing the deleterious effects of modern medical practice on relatives and loved ones, he decided to return to school and to practice medicine in an alternative fashion.
Dr. Larson’s goal in medicine is, and has always been, to help people live healthier lives with less pain while reducing the risks of modern treatments. He entered the medical field not only to make a difference in the world but also to find a better way to serve patients than the current healthcare system. He began with a goal to find purpose in improving the lives of others and a sense that he could do better. He will tell you that he was fortunate to have found an Osteopathic medical school because Osteopathy allows him a way to reach this goal.
After completing medical school at the University of North Texas Health Science Center, Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, he attended a family medicine residency at Christus Santa Rosa in San Antonio. Since his graduation from residency in 2010, he has enjoyed living in Austin.
