Dr. Bergfeld's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bergfeld "Dr. Bergfeld is a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist (physiatrist) who has completed additional fellowship training in spine, sports medicine and occupational medicine. She and her husband, who is a native Austinite, returned to Texas after 8 years in private practice in Buffalo, NY."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bergfeld "Why I chose to specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation... I was working on a trauma team in medical school when a police officer who had been shot at close range in the head was rushed to the ER in the middle of the night. He survived a long ICU stay, multiple surgeries with multiple complications but then left to go to the rehabilitation floor. Three months later he was walking. A year later he was running in a 5K. I was hooked on that miraculous rehabilitation process and how a team of people can help a challenged, complex patient to return to a beautiful, highly functional life."
