Dr. Rachel Garvin, MD
I am a neurointensivist and emergency physician practicing at University Hospital in San Antonio, TX. Neurointensivists from emergency medicine make up a very small proportion of the physicians in this field. Before becoming a physician, I was a pediatric nurse so I understand the critical role that nurses play in the care of our patients. Taking care of patients with injuries to the brain and spine can be very challenging but with some incredible and miraculous outcomes. My practice philosophy is patient focused and family centered. Neurologic injuries are life changing for both patients and their families and that is what my practice reflects.
