My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I believe that patients have unique health journeys and goals for living their fullest lives. As your internal medicine physician, I strive to create a customized wellness plan that reflects and respects what matters to you, while providing medical guidance and expertise. I also aim to foster a collaborative relationship to help improve your patient experience and outcomes.

In addition to general internal medicine, I am interested in cardiovascular disease prevention, cholesterol management and nutrition as a way of helping to optimize health and minimize illness.

I started my career in medicine in Austin over 20 years ago. Before I shifted my focus to preventive and primary care, I worked as a hospital-based physician, treating a range of acute illnesses, such as heart attacks, strokes and various infectious diseases. In my time in Austin-area hospitals, I built relationships within the Austin medical community, which helps me refer you to specialists when needed. 

My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, which go far beyond those found in most concierge medicine practices. I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments. My friendly staff provides patient-centric customer service and communication.


 It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.

from Denise in TX June 14, 2024 for Shawn Laney, MD

I am in my early 80’s. Earlier this year, I was seeking a new primary care doctor in Austin, Texas. Based on a recommendation from a friend I selected Dr Shawn Laney. I am very happy that I did so.

from Phil in TX April 18, 2024 for Shawn Laney, MD

I am 89 years old. During the entirety of my adult life I have chosen primary care providers who were highly qualified, highly regarded and, in most cases, members of leading full scale medical offices.

from Doug in TX March 11, 2024 for Shawn Laney, MD

For no particular reason, I have been averse to going on a statin, even though my total cholesterol has always been high, as has my LDL cholesterol. On an office visit a couple of years ago, when I was 76 y.o., I went to see Dr. Laney for an annual exam. As he normally did, Dr. Laney discussed my elevated cholesterol and increased risk of coronary artery disease, even though I had no cardiac… See more

I'm so grateful for how easy it is to engage with Dr. Laney. When i first consulted him in 2022, it was for anti-malarial medication for a safari in Africa, and he spent a generous amount of time explaining my options and including me in the selection of the right one for me. Last September he prescribed medication to prevent altitude sickness that I took when i visited Peru and Machu… See more
