Care Philosophy

DrCarney headSQ WhiteBack.120x120.optLinda Carney MD helps you to prevent and reverse disease! So many health problems are worsened by lifestyle habits, such as inappropriate nutrition, inadequate sleep, drinking, smoking, lack of exercise and stretching, as well as negative thought patterns. Dr. Carney helps patients prevent and reverse disease through balanced lifestyle changes, and in particular, demonstrates how to implement anti-inflammatory, high fiber, nutrient dense plant-based, Starch-Smart® dietary changes. She also prescribes medicines when necessary or when her patients choose not to believe that certain foods or habits contribute to illness.

AllMedPhysicians LogoAfter spending years working as an Emergency Physician, Dr. Carney realized that she would rather be like a FENCE of protection, at the top of the cliff, instead of like an AMBULANCE at the bottom of a cliff. Her emphasis on Whole Person Care helps to prevent people from falling off the cliff, down into illness. She also helps repair people whose health was impaired after slipping off of that cliff. Dr. Carney simplifies the science so that all may understand how lifestyle choices may impair health or promote health. The best evidenced-based medicine has scientifically proven how disease may be reversed by adopting a plant-based diet of whole foods with less than 20% of calories from fats. This web-site points you towards science that is credible, effective, and peer-reviewed.

Another fitting analogy is that of being like a WARNING sign placed before a bend in the road that is washed out ahead, but whose threat is not yet visible from where the WARNING sign is located. Dr. Carney believes that most people want to be warned if their health habits are steering them towards danger. Sadly, and unfortunately, not everyone believes that certain lifestyle habits are contributing to that danger.

Although she loved practicing medicine at Palo Alto Medical Foundation, in the San Francisco Bay area of her native California, Dr. Carney traded the practice of corporate medicine for operating her own Wellness Primary Care Practice since 2006 as a solo physician, located in Buda, Texas. This allowed her the freedom to focus on reversing disease naturally, with less pressure to prescribe medications or tests, so that prevention of disease could supersede the corporate world's demand for financial productivity. Her hourly rate of income sunk by 75% but her level of satisfaction increased greatly due to helping MANY people to lose weight, heal disease, and improve their quality of life. "That trade-off was worth it!" Dr. Carney says. It is thrilling for Dr. Carney to see her patients not only control their diseases through medications but actually reverse and or irradicate their diseases, frequently resulting in no longer needing medication. Results include, but are not limited to the following:

  1. Cancer patients in remission
  2. Diabetics whose blood sugars are under control naturally, no longer requiring medications
  3. Heart Disease patients whose cholesterol levels dropped lower than they ever imagined possible, with some now in the essentially "Heart Attack Proof" range
  4. Weight Loss for people who believed they had already tried everything, but never tried the lifestyle advocated by Dr. Carney
  5. Greatly improved sleep and the increased energy levels, and numerous other health benefits, that accompany restful sleep
  6. Restored Cognitive Function and reversal of anxiety-laden thought patterns
  7. Reduction in discomforts of menopause, PMS, or menstrual cramps or irregular bleeding
  8. Sexual function restoration
  9. Reversal of anemia, acne, asthma, rhematoid arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and low back pain
  10. Assisting young athletes and body-builders attain peak performance and physique
  11. Reductions in the symptoms of ADD and ADHD
  12. Prevention of dementia
  13. Lowering blood pressure naturally without drugs

Truly, perfect health depends on perfect circulation. Our vascular system is so important to every part of our body, that it deserves to be monitored regularly via biomarkers (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 weakened by the foods we choose. The immune system, much of which is located in our intestines, 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 choices now can make a difference in your cancer risks. Even if you already have been diagnosed with cancer, lifestyle changes offer hope.

Health education is so important to Linda Carney MD that she maintains a well-stocked library of Health Education DVDs, which are available not only for purchase but also for her patients and 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!

Dr. Carney has served on numerous occasions as the Medical Director for the Engine 2 Diet Immersion for the employees of Whole Foods Markets and the public, as hired by Rip Esselstyn, of the acclaimed documentary "Forks Over Knives".

Read some patient testimonies about Dr. Linda Carney's exemplary care:

Extremely thorough. One of the better ones.

Although I have never sought care from Dr. Carney, I have interacted with her several times on a professional level. As a professional in the health care industry and one who has interacted with 100's of primary care providers, I can say, without doubt, that Dr. Carney is one of the better ones. Why? Because she is extremely thorough... her practice, managed by her husband, Sean, is well organized and the staff are well-trained and extremely pleasant. I am sometimes disturbed by some of the PCP practices I visit... unorganized, terrible staff and, more often than not, the doctors are more concerned about volume and reimbursements than truly understanding their patients' needs. Dr. Carney and Sean are good people and they both genuinely care about the well-being of their patients. It is so rare to be able to say that in this day and age. Buda/Kyle/South Austin is extremely lucky to have such a great provider.

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.

Truly a Life Saver!

Once upon a time many years ago on a warm Monday morning in June,
I met Doctor Linda K. Carney, MD. I wasn't feeling well and although my wife is a RN; after taking temps, pulse and blood pressure readings she knew there was something else not right. We didn't have a routine family primary care physician so we randomly selected Dr. Carney.
Dr. Carney immediately ordered staff to administer an EKG. She then asked me to sit in the waiting room. Moments later she said she had a cardiologist read the EKG, that she had already admitted me into the local hospital and had her car parked out front to personally drive me to the hospital. I was admitted and an angiogram was accomplished and determined I needed further treatment at a better equipped hospital. The next day I was transported by ambulance to another hospital where a angioplasty was performed with the insertion of two stents. Dr. Carney most likely saved my life. I later found out that she had previously worked in Emergency Medicine for several years.
Our family then adopted Dr. Carney as our Primary Healthcare Physician and we all could not be happier. She has provided us in-depth, up-to-date information on diseases, medications, dietary and lifestyle choices. Each and every visit with Dr. Carney was an event we looked forward to and learned more about common problems associated with Internal Medicine such as; obesity and smoking as related to potential cardiac disease, lung disease and diabetes. It was surprising to learn how imprtant physical exercise was to health.
Clearly, Doctor Carney reinforces the patients knowledge, motivates proper personal behavior and facilitates the removal of medical barriers to total wellness. She allows patients to make positive choices about their health, education and self-controlled lifestyle. One of Dr. Carney's key traits is that she listens very carefully to the patient's personal conerns prior to reaching a thoughtful diagnosis. Because of the time spent with Dr. Carney, our personal health remains better and stable because of the education and guidance she provided. I am 78 years young.
Yes, Doctor Linda K. Carney, MD is truly a life saver!

the hot flashes, bloating and irritability have left me

I started seeing Dr. carney a couple of months ago. I am a good Texas girl that ate tons of meat, lots of dairy and thought that my life would come to an end if I had to give up either. After searching my soul and listening to my body, on top of opening my heart to the ethical reasons to give up meat and animal products I decided to give the vegetarian life a try. Now, I am what I would call vegan-ish. Im trying, and having a cheerleader like Dr. Carney has made a big difference.

I find her bedside manner to be extraordinary. She takes her time, listens to you and gives you tons of free advice and information. She is one of a kind! I never feel rushed, always feel cared for, and in a world of hypermedia and insincere people, I think that she is one spectacular Doctor. I don't have a ton of things wrong with me, but I am in early-forced menopause at 39, and after listening to her and heeding her advice, the hot flashes, bloating and irritability have left me.

Her waiting room is peaceful and tidy. Actually, I find myself not wanting to turn my phone on and text! I just want to take in the surroundings. Honestly, I think that it is part of what makes her office so special.

There are some great resources that are available to you for fee as well, but how many self help books have I bought in the past. The books and info that she has are first rate and very good. She has never made me feel guilty for saying no to any of them. She does not push, she only informs. My goal is to be healthier, to feel better and to get off the pills. With Dr. Carneys help, that is happening.

Going the extra mile!

Dr. Carney is truly a caring, concerned doctor. I first went to her for some digestion issues that I was having. She worked with me over several visits and with various symptoms until she was able to help me identify the root of my symptoms. I am now feeling much better and no longer have the worries that were starting to weigh on me. She and her staff are wonderful!
