It is our mission to go beyond normal and find what is OPTIMAL!
Unfortunately in medicine today, physicians have very little time to spend with patients and therefore we fall in to the rhythm of poor diagnosis which commonly means writing a prescription for symptoms. Even worse, if the underlying issue isn’t clear, then many patients are prescribed anti-depressants and sent on their way. We pledge to spend more time with you so that we may deliver the best care possible. We use a variety of tests to determine how multiple organ systems are involved with your problem. We offer programs that address hormone imbalance, gastrointestinal function, brain wellness, adrenal fatigue and all natural weight management. If you desire a new, all natural personalized approach to your health care — let Premier Health and Wellness provide the personal attention you deserve.
Dr. Edgerton is a board certified OB/GYN. His interest in bioidentical hormone replacement started years ago when he realized many of his patients were not improving with some of the standard medical regimens. Research and study led him to understand that there is a wealth of scientific literature to support supplementation with more natural forms of many medicines. He now feels he can best help his patients and add life to years as well as years to life.
He received his medical degree from Louisiana State University and completed his training at the University of Texas in Houston. Dr. Edgerton and his family have lived in the Austin area since 2005. His outside interests include sports, exercise, family, friends and nature.
Holly Stanger, FNP
Holly Stanger is a certified Family Nurse Practitioner. She obtained her Masters in Nursing at the University of Texas at Austin. She first met Dr. Edgerton while working in labor and delivery. Years later, their paths crossed again as Holly was searching for a more natural approach to her own health concerns. Through her personal journey of using bio-identical hormones to assist her in coming off medications, she began to realize the undeniable benefits. While practicing family medicine she frequently had male and female patients with similar health complaints that were not being addressed by medications. They were often informed there were no other options, especially hormone replacement. That’s when Holly became passionate about educating her patients about their options to take a proactive approach investing in their health through bio-identical hormones and supplements.
Holly and her husband enjoy raising their own backyard chickens, gardening, hiking outdoors and attending live mixed martial arts events.
