"Dr. Katriny Ikbal is a Board Certified Family Physician with an extreme passion for patient care. She received her undergraduate degree in Nutrition from The University of Texas at Austin and attended Midwestern University in Glendale, AZ for medical school. She then trained here in Austin at the UT Southwestern Family Medicine residency program Before founding DirectMed, Dr. Ikbal spent the previous several years working in various urgent care centers. This is where she saw the need for a family medical practice built around more meaningful patient/doctor relationships and a focus on long term family health. Dr. Ikbal is devoted to giving her patients the absolute best care possible. She feels that the amount of time she can spend with her patients is key to understanding their needs. Dr. Ikbal became disillusioned with the old way, because insurance based healthcare severely limits patient/doctor interactions. Then Dr. Ikbal learned about the Direct Primary Care model that is growing quickly throughout the U.S. She realized it was the answer that she and millions of underserved patients had been looking for. When Dr. Ikbal is not serving her patients, she loves spending time with her family and two rescue dogs. Dr. Ikbal loves traveling, movies, baking and yoga."
