I grew up loving science, especially biology, and while at Southwestern University, had an opportunity to work at a hospital as well as an internship with the Health Department. This really opened my eyes to the possibilities within medicine, leading me to my training in San Antonio. I witnessed firsthand how special and powerful family medicine can be in influencing not just patient health, but the health of the entire community. My role as a doctor is to become a health partner and advocate for my patients, deciding on health goals together and providing recommendations and treatment in line with those goals. My hope is that my patients feel heard and cared about.
Dr. Ferrero grew up in Round Rock and is overjoyed to be back in Central Texas to practice! When she’s not working, Dr. Ferrero enjoys spending time with her husband, new infant daughter, and greyhound Pepper. They love exploring the Hill Country and spending time outside, cooking together, and traveling. Dr. Ferrero has a special interest in women, infants, children and adolescents as well as caring for the entire family, infants to geriatrics, including LGBTQ patients and adults with disabilities. Her favorite local spots include the Square in Georgetown, Chuys, and wherever she can listen to live Texas Country music!
