Listening and Kindness Are Part of the Treatment Plan
April 14, 2017
Austin Regional Clinic is pleased to announce that Dr. Alexandra E. Ely has joined the team at ARC Far West. She sees patients as a Family Medicine provider in Same-Day Care.
Dr. Ely comes to ARC by way of Michigan, where she attended medical school and residency. She was drawn to the medical field by her early life experiences. She says, “I chose a career in medicine after being influenced by exposure to the Indian Health Services, medical missions, and “country doctors who did everything.” These experiences also influenced her philosophy of practice, saying, “Human care, kindness, and listening go a long way in helping people feel better.”
Dr. Ely tells us that she enjoys a number of activities, including continuing medical education, book clubs, cooking, gardening, sewing, and going on medical missions. She adds that her favorite Central Texas spots are “any place serving breakfast tacos!,” Mount Bonnell, and the Blanton Museum.
Dr. Ely’s go-to health tip is good for us all—“One can never go wrong with healthy habits!”
Dr. Ely is currently working in Same-Day Care at ARC Far West. Welcome, Dr. Alexandra E. Ely!
