I always loved science while growing up, but never really knew in what way I wanted to apply it to my life until college, when I was introduced to a great pre-med program and began my career! I ultimately chose Family Medicine because I love being able to see and “do” everything for all age ranges of patients. I believe in listening to my patients’ concerns, then advising, educating and counseling them, so together we can decide on the best path to reach their health goals. I love the continuity of care in Family Medicine, seeing the entire family, getting to know them on a personal level and have their trust, because you are their doctor – it’s an amazing feeling!
When he’s not working, Dr. Garcia enjoys traveling and will try to sneak away for weekend trips when he can. He also likes going to the movies to see the latest films, and recently began fixing up his new house. Dr. Garcia has a young dog and cat at home that keep him busy with their “whimsical nonsense!” Being somewhat new to Austin, he’s exploring all the city has to offer, including arts, music, food, sports, and culture. He also enjoys the outdoors, especially Zilker Park and the greenbelt.
