The Art of Medicine
February 16, 2017
Austin Regional Clinic is happy to announce that Dr. Heidi M. Thompson, Family Medicine physician, has joined the team at ARC Southwest.
Dr. Thompson says, “I chose Family Medicine as my specialty because I didn’t want to work with just one group of people. I love treating all ages and a variety of medical issues, and being the primary care physician for an entire family is very fulfilling.” She adds, “I also have a special interest and training in pediatrics and women’s health issues.”
Dr. Thompson states that listening is a big part of her patient care philosophy. She says, “In my experience, the art of medicine is 90% listening and 10% everything else.” She says that her main goal in treating her patients is to “help them be as happy and healthy as possible.”
A native of Utah, Dr. Thompson says she still has a lot to see in the Greater Austin area, but one of her favorite places so far is Zilker Park. When not working, Dr. Thompson enjoys spending time with her husband, running, cooking, dancing, and exploring her new home.
Dr. Thompson is currently accepting new patients at ARC Southwest. Call 512-282-8967or go online to make an appointment. Welcome, Dr. Heidi Thompson!
