About Jacob A. Childers, MD

  • Dr. Childers only sees patients for same-day illness and injury visits. Patients should always follow up with their primary care physician (PCP).

    Dr. Childers is married to his high school sweetheart, and they have two boys. He enjoys spending time with his family, exploring Austin, road biking, snow skiing, reading non-fiction, and watching sports. He moved back to Texas after his residency, and is happy to be in the Austin area.

I chose Family Medicine because I love the challenging variety, as well as the opportunity to touch lives in multiple ways. Each day brings new challenges and personalities, and is therefore never dull or monotonous. With Urgent Care medicine, I find that I really enjoy the opportunity to help fix whatever pressing need the patient brings to me.

    I had a very positive experience, overall With all aspects related to this appointment. I was days away from leaving the country and needing to see a doctor about a sudden health concern. The lady who scheduled me over the phone was extremely understanding and compassionate about my dilemma. She was able to get me an appointment the following day to see Dr. Childers. I very much appreciated her help. To begin my appointment, I was met by Dr. Childers nurse who was very caring and pleasant. I as then impressed with Dr, Childers who very personable and seemed trustworthy. He listened to my concern and provided calming insight. On top of that, he followed up after my test results were ready with additional medical advice regarding my care. Well done!
