meet YOUR PROVIDER
Brenda Andereck, PA-C
Brenda is our primary provider 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 pursued a career in medicine, it was only later in life that she chose to specialize in anti-aging treatments. Entering her 40’s, Brenda began experiencing some of the unwanted symptoms normally associated with aging. . .hormone imbalance, weight gain, loss of energy, facial creases and wrinkles. She was seen by her primary doctors without resolution. "It was an ordeal and it was frustrating," she says. "There was no improvement in my symptoms and the doctors were only spending a few minutes of their time with me."
“It shouldn’t be like this,” she insists. “I know medical providers see 20 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.”
“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.
For patients suffering from age-related symptoms and declines, Brenda is trained in hormone optimization. In 2016, she received certification in advanced protocols for bio-identical hormone optimization from Worldlink Medical. She is also certified in BioTE Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy.
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 fat, weight 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.
