I appreciate any existing and new patients joining me on this journey as I open my own wellness practice. I want to be forthcoming with my practice approach: genuine, quality patient-centered care in the context of full transparency, which is sadly, something often missing in today’s health care system and health care clinics, nationwide, even locally.

Kathryn Bycura is a Family Nurse Practitioner board certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center and licensed by the Texas Board of Nursing.

Katie completed both her undergraduate and graduate educations at Georgetown University in Washington, DC.  She has over ten years of experience in health care, the last eight of which as an advanced practice nurse.  Her varied background includes experience in family practice, urgent care, gastroenterology and hepatology, and geriatrics.  She has worked across the health care spectrum from hospitals to clinics to short-term health rehabilitation centers to home visits.

As an independent provider, she focuses her current practice on health promotion and disease prevention. Her areas of personal interest continue to be the proper diagnosis and management of chronic medical conditions, natural hormones, and weight loss and weight maintenance. She is also trained on specialty aesthetic procedures.

Katie is passionate about patient education and believes true health care cannot be provided in the industry-wide standard 15 minute visit window. She also believes true wellness can only be achieved when you look at the whole patient: body, mind, spirit, and heart.

“We are all working to be the best version of ourselves. I’m on this journey
with you, and I’m my own work in progress. I’m not just talking the talk,
but rather walking the walk along side you.”

Katie is a native Austinite and graduate from Westlake High School. She enjoys staying close to her family and friends, running, reading, cooking, and spending time with her Austin Pets Alive! rescues Bear, Finn, and Riley.

I believe health care needs to be directed away from large multi-level health systems streamlined to be money-making business enterprises with huge profits and, instead – the focus needs to fall back on you, the patient, and your health needs. I choose to challenge the industry-wide standard of a 15 minute health care visit. Health and wellness is a journey, what I call “being the best version of yourself” – and this cannot be contained within such a short allotment of time.

As a new business, please know that my office visits will be Fee-For-Service. This sounds incredibly expensive and, understandably, worrisome, but please know I have worked hard to ensure my rates are reasonable. With most insurance plans now being high-deductible, and should your plan be one which requires your office co-pays go toward the deductible, your out-of-pocket with my approach may end up being more affordable than if you would be using your insurance at another clinic. In order to be able to sustain these rates long-term (and keep the lights on and student loan bills paid!), please spread the word about my practice to your family, friends, and network.

Reach out to me should you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you again very soon!
