My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As an MDVIP-affiliated family doctor my intention is to provide high quality, personalized healthcare to my patients. For me, the key element in this is the word care. Having a smaller panel of patients allows me the time to become thoroughly familiar with my patients and enables me to form a trusting partnership so we can collaborate both in treating illness and achieving health goals. 

I have a special interest in stress reduction, which affects all aspects of a person’s life, as well as many disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, gastro-intestinal problems and sleep. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments that start on time. My primary care practice has served the Dripping Springs and Austin areas for the last 23 years, which has also given me extensive experience treating seasonal allergies.

from Beverly in TX March 12, 2018 for Todd D. Buchanan, MD

Dr. Buchanan has been my family doctor for about 25 years. He and his staff have seen me through broken bones, 2 car wrecks, and the usual aches and pains of an aging woman. Most importantly, he recognized my unusual palor during a med review and advised a blood test to see if I was anemic. We were all shocked when the results came in and I immediately went to the hospital for several… See more

from Dan in TX March 7, 2018 for Todd D. Buchanan, MD

Luckily for me, I am not a patient that Dr Buchanan needs to see regularly, yet. But I know from the little bit of interaction I have with him, I am in good hands in the event I need him.
I love the yearly physical and the time Dr Buchanan spends explaining things line by line. I never feel he is in a hurry.
