Dr. Gail Crear
Dr. Crear Is board certified in Internal Medicine
Dr. Crear is a caring and dedicated Primary Care Physician who has been practicing Internal Medicine in Texas since 2013. She feels it is important to utilize both medical and lifestyle strategies to achieve the best outcomes for her patients. Dr. Crear believes in a low carbohydrate lifestyle and practices one herself.
Dr. Crear began her education at The University of Texas at Austin where she earned Bachelors’ degrees in Biology and Government. She then took two years to live with her father in the Philippines and volunteered at a local hospital there, which only cemented her passion for medicine.
That passion took her back to her hometown of Houston where she attended the prestigious Baylor College of Medicine for both medical school and Internal Medicine Residency. After completing her training she moved to Dallas and worked as a perioperative hospitalist from 2016-2019. Dr. Crear is excited to be joining Thrive Medical Clinic and to be back in Austin, the city she first fell in love with during her college years. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her husband, a chemical engineer, and their two rescue dogs. Her hobbies include traveling and reading as many books as possible.
