Brenda Andereck, PA-C

Brenda is the health provider at Praxis Wellness Center in San Antonio.  She is a Physician Assistant licensed in the states of Texas and California.  Prior to joining Praxis, Brenda was the primary medical provider at Texas Weight Loss Center in San Antonio.

Although Brenda trained for a career in medicine, it was only later in life that she chose to specialize in anti-aging treatments.  Entering her mid-40’s, Brenda started experiencing some of the unwanted symptoms associated with aging; hormone imbalance, weight gain, loss of energy, facial creases and wrinkles.  She was seen by her primary doctor without resolution.  "It was an ordeal and it was frustrating," she says.  Not only was there no improvement in Brenda’s symptoms, but the doctors were only spending a few minutes of their time with her.  

“It shouldn’t be like this,” she insists. “Medical providers see 20 to 30 patients a day, but my issues are just as concerning as everybody else’s.  Don’t just write me a prescription; take the time to figure this out.”

Brenda’s frustrations led her to become certified in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), medical weight loss, high-dose IV vitamin treatments and no-knife facial cosmetic treatments (BOTOX, fillers, PRP and chemical peels).  And her personal experience with doctor appointments made her more sensitive about the treatment of her own patients.  Brenda determined she would neither rush patients nor relegate certain medical issues as being less important than others.

 “At Praxis, it’s all about building relationships,” she says.  “I take my time.  I listen to my patients.  Together, we identify the underlying problem and undertake solutions to remediate.”

Brenda's credentials.  After graduating from Des Moines University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in 1990, Brenda practiced in internal medicine, family clinics, emergency room and medical weight loss.

In an outpatient setting, Brenda has treated chronic and acute obesity-related diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, elevated cholesterol, heart disease and chronic fatigue.  She has successfully counteracted unwanted symptoms, including stubborn fatweight gain, early menopause, PCOS, hot flashes, hypothyroid, low testosterone (Low T), fibromyalgia, hair loss, loss of libido, stress, restless sleep, loss of muscle mass and related.

Brenda realizes that most of these unhealthy conditions can be cured, or even prevented, if the root of the problem is appropriately diagnosed and properly remediated.   

Brenda treats her patients as individuals, allocating whatever time is necessary to understand their needs and design individual health plans for them.  

It is obvious wellness is her passion, as she explains, "In our clinic, we don't just care for our patients.  We care about our patients."
