About

Alamo Heights Primary Care Physicians

Personalized and Independent

We are a small independently owned practice – the way medicine has traditionally been structured, providing personalized care. Our office is organized to be a friendly, comfortable atmosphere with a customer service approach.

Continuity

Dr. Hoelscher’s care for you extends beyond the clinic – he will also personally care for you in the Nix Hospital, rehabilitation center, and even long term nursing care home if needed.

Preventative

In our office, we recommend healthcare screenings. We want to identify risk factors that our patients may have to develop illness in order to make better decisions about your care. We recommend regular visits to help manage chronic disease that can help lead to healthier and happier lives. We strive to provide you the support that you need to achieve your individual healthcare goals.

Innovative

We have new technology in the office. Our interactive website can provide you with access to online scheduling, general office information and updates on our services. We use an electronic health record that meets the standards as outlined by the Center for Healthcare Services. As a patient, you’ll get secure, online access to a Personal Health Record where you can store and manage your important health information including test results.
