After working for several clinics and labs across the U.S., Dr. Venkatesh Segu set out to start a different medical practice in Austin, TX by prioritizing patient wellbeing through longer, dedicated appointments and personalized treatment plans.
Placing patients' well being first is Captial Endocine & Diabetes' guiding principle. I have worked all over the country and witnessed how patients were not given enough time to explain their challenges and understand their medical situation during appointments. At Capital Endocrine & Diabetes we provide new patients an unmatched 45 minute consultation with undivided attention of our doctors. This gives our medical professionals ample time to understand each situation and devise the best medical plan for the patient.
In addition, our practice emphasizes transparency with patients. Transparency and trust are key pillars to healthcare that I found lacking in places I had worked previously. By openly communicating with patients and keeping them aware of viable medical options, we work as an effective team to strategize improving their health.
Above all else, I founded this practice because we need more Endocrinologists. ~10.5% of the US population has diabetes and ~40% of adults are struggling with obesity. Capital Endocrine & Diabetes is dedeciated to help more of such patients in the greater Austin area.
