Professional Statement

Dr. Garrett started Direct MD Austin because he is passionate about medicine, and it allows him to practice medicine to the best of his ability. His practice is focused on restoring the two elements most missing from our healthcare system: time and freedom. Time to get to know each patient as an individual, listen to their concerns, answer their questions, explore all their options. Time to research the latest diagnostic and treatment options and focus on prevention and education. And freedom from restrictions and controls by third parties like insurance companies and government health programs. Dr. Garrett believes preventative, diagnostic, and treatment decisions should be guided by the informed judgment of the doctor and patient, not any other party or entity.
