Taking Care of “Ills, Chills, and Spills”
July 10, 2019
Austin Regional Clinic is pleased to announce that Leah J. Treadwell, MD, Family Medicine physician, has joined the team at ARC Southwest as a Same-Day Care provider.
Austin native Dr. Treadwell explains what she likes about providing same-day care, saying “I have been doing same-day care since 2003. I found that taking care of people’s “ill, chills and spills” is my strength. Figuring out what is ailing someone or tending to injuries is a fundamental in medical care.”
Describing her approach to practicing medicine, Dr. Treadwell says, “The patient comes first. Unexpected illness and accidents happen – my job is to help you through these situations with compassion, understanding and skill.”
Moderation in Everything
In her free time, Dr. Treadwell stays busy. She says, “I have always been an active person, on the trail, in the water, visiting the mountains or lakes. Everyone needs a hobby. Mine include my pets, stained glass, jewelry making, trash novels, cult movies, and family time.”
Dr. Treadwell gives this health tip to her patients--“Everything in moderation, even moderation. Stay active, eat well, sleep well...but have fun out there!”
Dr. Treadwell is in Same-Day Care at ARC Southwest. Same-Day appointments are available 365 days a year for minor emergencies, including sprains, colds and flu, minor burns, seasonal allergies, and more. Schedule an appointment with the Same-Day Care clinic online or by calling ARC Southwest at 512-282-8967.
