About Boris A. Gritzka, MD

  • Dr. Gritzka’s interests include spending time and playing games and soccer with his wife and two sons. He is a swimmer and photographer, and enjoys Austin and the surrounding area’s parks, recreation, and camping. Dr. Gritzka also plays guitar at home, and enjoys Austin’s live music scene.

Healthy child development is the focus of my practice, and I make myself very available to my patients. My European background and openness contribute to my interest in different cultural backgrounds.

  • January 13, 2023

    Appointment was scheduled early for 4 month check up (baby is only 3 months) but we’re able to be seen by doctor with no problem

  • January 12, 2023

    I was very impressed with how the doctor engaged us in conversation about all the different things we can do to combat, allergies - and shared his experience as well (which was very helpful). I would definitely choose to come back to see him, super helpful.

    Our family is German-American, and in addition to finding Dr. Gritzka to be an excellent pediatrician (who is great with our son), we get to speak German with him!
