Linda Carney MD wants to help you to Prevent and Reverse disease! So many health problems are worsened by lifestyle issues, such as smoking, drinking, inappropriate nutritional habits, inadequate sleep, lack of exercise and stretching as well as negative thought patterns. Dr. Carney believes in helping people Prevent and Reverse Disease through balanced lifestyle changes, and in particular through implementing anti-inflammatory, high fiber, nutrient dense Plant-Based dietary changes. She also prescribes medicines.
After spending more than 20 years working as an Emergency Room Physician Dr. Carney realized that she wanted to be a FENCE at the top of the cliff instead of an AMBULANCE in the valley. Her emphasis on Whole Person Care is all about preventing people from falling over the edge of the cliff of poor health rather than repairing broken people after a crash landing in the valley of lifestyle choices that impair health. Another fitting analogy is that of being a WARNING sign in front of a washed out road. Who wouldn't want to be warned if their lives were in imminent danger? Sadly, and unfortunately, the answer is 'many people'.
In order to be more preventive in her Medical Practice, without regard to the pressure and demands for financially productivity, Dr. Carney left the world of corporate medicine and began operating a Primary Care Practice as a solo practitioner, located in Buda, Texas. Her hourly level of pay was easily reduced by 90% but her level of satisfaction due to helping MANY people in Preventing and Reversing their disease conditions increased immeasurably. The greatest thrill for Dr. Carney is seeing her patients not just control their diseases through medications but actually reverse and in many cases completely eradicate their diseases, frequently resulting in no longer needing to be medication dependent. Results include, but are not limited to the following:
- Cancer patients in remission
- Diabetics whose blood sugars are under control natuarally, no longer requiring medications
- Heart Disease patients whose cholesterol levels dropped lower than they ever imagined possible, now in the essentially Heart Attack Proof range
- Weight Loss for people who previously believed they had tried everything but had never tried the all you care to eat, low fat, plant-based lifestyle advocated by Dr. Carney
- Greatly improved sleep and the increased energy levels, and numerous other health benefits, that accompany restful sleep
- Restored Cognitive Function and reversal of anxiety laden thought patterns
- Reduction in menopausal discomfort
Truly, perfect health depends on perfect circulation. Our vascular system should be monitored with numbers, such as our weight, blood pressure, & lipid levels, (cholesterol, etc), to prevent atherosclerosis from accelerating the aging process and the breakdown of our joints, senses, and memory, among other potential risks. Every day, our immune system is strengthened or impaired by the foods we choose. The immune system searches our body daily for abnormal cells, destroying them before they can multiply into a cancer. Don't lose hope if you have a strong family history of cancer. Optimizing your lifestyle now can make a difference in your cancer risks.
Patient Education is heavily emphasized by Linda Carney MD and a well stocked library of Health Education DVDs are available for the public to come and watch, free of charge. For those patients wishing to spend no more money than necessary on drugs and surgery, Dr. Carney offers book recommendations and online videos to help you optimize your health through good habits. Lifestyle changes can help to make you healthy by choice, not by chance. Ask to see our cooking demonstration videos!

I Get Better and Better
Dr. Carney has been the only provider who has ever taken on the responsibility of helping me to manage my care and my health! While I have sometimes had a hard time accepting the hard truth that she has delivered, under her guidance I have strengthened my immune system, ended the chronic annual 4 sinus infections that have plagued me for years, narrowly missed a cardiac event because of her vigilance and adamancy that I not ignore that funny little tingling in my left hand, and lost weight.
Giving up animal products has not been hard, although I still struggle to change my cooking habits and know what to fix for myself and my family. As a life time carnivore I can readily acknowledge that accepting a vegan diet is at the heart of the solution to my improved health. Introduction to appropriate reading materials through Dr. Carney’s library has helped me intellectually to understand the negative role of lifelong habits on my health and accept the need to change them. To say that Dr. Carney and her team have saved my life would be an understatement. When I follow her direction I get better and better rather than older and older.
Thorough and Caring, Life Changing Treatment
Dr. Carney is truly in medicine as an act of love. She listens and gently gives caring advice that helps her patients live a healthier lifestyle. She does not just treat the symptoms of whatever is currently a health problem, but shares her vast knowledge in language the patient can understand, to promote healthy living.
I came away from visits with lifestyle information that I am convinced will help me be stronger, live longer, and enjoy the outdoor activity that is now a part of my life in California (on the beach and with my new grand daughter). I feel like I have been given the gift of time and energy for so much that I would have missed out on with a less healthy approach to my own care. I will be able to enjoy so much now that I have her words of wisdom on health care.
I envy her patients in Texas that get to keep her as their physician in the future! :o)3
Simply the Best!
I have had the good fortune to have Dr Carney as my doctor for the last few years. Having spent thirty seven years flying airplanes, with the requisite flight physicals every six months along with the normal physical procedures along the way, I have had the opportunity to experience the approaches and expertise of many doctors, both military and civilian. Dr Carney, put simply, is the best of the lot. She truly cares, has the curious,agile mind which causes her to stay abreast of the latest info and technologies and is a tremendous motivator to all of us to live the healthy lifestyle. You truly come to think of Dr Carney as a teammate, an MVP in our attempts to live the life we all desire. Her practice was selected as THE example of efficiency in the recent presentations by the Federal agency encouraging digitized medical records.
Thanks, Dr Carney, for attempting to convince us all to be as good a patient as you are a doctor.
The Best Physician
Linda Carney, MD is by far the best physician to be on my team. Her care is thorough, her visits are not rushed, and she is very easy to talk to. She is detailed in explanations of lab reports, medical history, or suggested treatments. She listens to my concerns and patiently offers suggestions to improve my lifestyle. She is comfortable in researching and suggesting many different modes of treatment that are best suited for me and she does it gently; with great deal of respect for my feelings. She is very futuristic in her holistic approach to medical care making her the doctor everyone would want to have.
I was looking for this type of physician for the last 7 years and I am extremely glad that she accepted me as her patient.
However, no matter how good is the physician the medical and clerical support staff will either make it a pleasant visit or not. Her staff is knowledgeable, never making a billing error, and very pleasant to deal with either in person or by phone.
On a final note: I highly recommend Linda Carney, MD as a Physician.
Knowledgeable and Caring!
Dr. Carney was considerate and caring enough to see me on a Friday afternoon when I had complications after surgery done by another physician. If she and her staff had not cared enough to take me in without an appointment and after hours, I would have ended up in the ER, I'm sure. I am forever grateful that she recognized my problem and prevented it from worsening over the weekend and perhaps turning into something major. They even followed up Monday morning to see if I was still doing well. My surgeon did not. She and her staff are very concerned about their patients' health, easy to talk to, sympathetic, always willing to help and extremely knowledgeable!
Thanks, Dr. Carney!
