Erin Donaldson is a board certified Family physician and graduate of the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine. After starting her career practicing hospital medicine, she transitioned to her true passion, providing preventative care through wellness and disease prevention.

While working in the hospital system, Dr. Donaldson developed a deep respect for the capacity of our healthcare system to treat acute conditions, but she also constantly witnessed the devastation that chronic disease creates.

Dr. Donaldson’s personal journey with Lupus, a systemic autoimmune condition, also helped spark her passion for changing healthcare. Since her diagnosis, she has made dramatic lifestyle changes to improve her nutrition, exercise, mindfulness, and more, and today no longer requires the use of medication to manage her condition.

In Dr. Donaldson’s current practice, she combines her personal and clinical experience to help patients take control of their own health outcomes. By using genomics, in-depth labs, and an understanding of each individual’s unique lifestyle, she’s able to formulate treatment plans that help her patients create sustainable change to optimize their health.
