Introducing Dr. Allison Wolfe: New Primary Care Provider at LeBauer’s Horse Pen Creek Location
With prescription drug use at an all-time high in America, Dr. Allison Wolfe has an important perspective on patient care. She calls it a “do-no-harm approach” – a strategy to help people make progress toward their health goals without using drugs whenever possible. This approach is used across all nine LeBauer Primary Care teams.
“I practice evidence-based medicine and advocate for lifestyle changes over medication in the appropriate setting,” Dr. Wolfe explained. “This gives the patient leadership and a voice in their healthcare.”
Dr. Wolfe is board certified in family medicine and welcomes patients of all ages to schedule an appointment with her at LeBauer HealthCare’s Horse Pen Creek office.
For Every Age and Stage of Life
Dr. Wolfe tailored her education to caring for families. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Baylor University, a Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Texas Tech University, and a Doctor of Medicine degree from American University of the Caribbean.
“I have a passion for family medicine because I love being able to take care of an entire family and walk through the stages of life with them, from the early years to the later years,” she said. “I have a heart for people and feel called to this profession. Sickness and healing know no boundaries.”
When it comes to healing, Dr. Wolfe believes in the power of a well-balanced life. This involves sleeping well, eating well, staying hydrated, and exercising.
“If you do the right things, a lot of health problems are preventable,” she explained.
Dr. Wolfe believes that yoga is a powerful tool for achieving this balance and practices in her own daily life. Additionally, in her spare time, she enjoys running, spending time with family, traveling, and going to church.
Prescribing Medications with Caution and Care
Most medications are not without side effects, possible adverse reactions, or addictive properties.
“I don’t want to just throw pills at people that may harm them instead of help them,” Dr. Wolfe stated.
She relies on her broad-based training and knowledge to determine when medications are necessary and when alternative options might be successful. Serving as a guide to her patients, Dr. Wolfe empowers people to make their own health decisions.
“I feel like my relationships with my patients is what sets me apart in healthcare,” she said. “I believe in taking time, listening, and truly establishing a relationship with people — that is the cornerstone of family medicine.”
Making a Difference Close to Home and Afar
Whether in pediatrics or geriatrics, in America or in a third-world country, Dr. Wolfe believes people can be empowered to take control of their health.
During her residency program at Waco Family Medicine, she went through an International Medicine track and prepared to touch lives around the globe. Dr. Wolfe has practiced in Bangladesh and plans to travel to Africa to share the latest advances in healthcare when her three young children are older.
She has a special interest in caring for women and geriatric patients but is well-equipped to serve all populations.
