Dr Venghaus was great- he listened to my questions and discussed my concerns. We even emailed post appointment when I had concerns about taking medication (I’m very sensitive to pharmaceuticals). One of the kindest most thoughtful doctors I’ve seen!

As a healthcare professional I’m a hard critic, I know what is expected of us, and an exceptional level of care was provided by Dr. Venghaus. He listened to me as a partner in my care, not just as a recipient.He offered suggestions to help me both financially and to maximize the efficiency of my time. He understood my unique situation with a traveling work schedule and was determined to make it work. He knows technology, and how to make use of it in medicine. His sincerity is genuine, and I look forward to working with him in the future.

My visit was Dr. Venghaus was so refreshing! I have been struggling to find the right PCP and I’m happy to say (after several terrible visits across Austin) that the hunt is over. Dr. Venghaus was very considerate, conversational, and professional.I walked away with a clear understanding of current findings and my next steps. He also took the time to learn about me personally. I further appreciated how much the staff valued my time and how courteous they were as soon as I arrived. Confident my health will be in good hands from this point forward!

Dr. Venghaus is wonderful! He is very thorough and took the time to listen to my concerns. I never felt rushed. He explained options for treatment, the pros and cons for each, gave his recommendation, then asked how I felt aboutthe options. He has a holistic approach and advocates making healthier life choices to make long term changes over just adding medications.

My recent visit to Dr. Venghaus was excellent. His clinic and staff were kind, efficient, and easy. I was especially pleased with how much of the appointment preparation I could to online before the visit. I scheduled it and filled outthe paperwork online, so by the time I arrived all I had to do was sign my already printed paperwork. Easy peasy. :) I felt my time with Dr. Venghaus was well paced. He was able to answer all my questions and set my mind at ease. It was my first visit with him, but I expect he'll become my regular GP.
