Laura Kromann, M.D.

Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine; Laura hails from the wonderfully unique city of Austin, TX. She studied Biology at Southwestern University, where in addition to receiving a great education, she unleashed her competitive drive on the soccer field as a center midfielder for the Southwestern Pirates and ran the 800-meter for the track team. While at Southwestern, she studied the nearly extinct Georgetown salamander. This experience helped her realize that imbalances in any environment, whether in our ecosystem or in our bodies, can bring harmful consequences. Also during this time, she made her first international medical trip to Mexico, helping to deliver healthcare to the remote interior region. That trip and subsequent trips to Haiti, Peru and Eagle Pass, Texas affirmed her goals to one day bring medicine to the underserved locally and abroad.

Upon completing her degree, she arrived in a small town with a big heart, College Station, TX, to attend medical school. She volunteered and managed the school’s free student-run clinic, taught middle school students through Stand Tall Against Tobacco, founded and lead an interest group in integrative medicine, and participated in public health research on childhood obesity. Laura’s enthusiasm for family medicine comes from the ability of family practitioners to develop lifelong patient relationships and provide full-spectrum care. She is passionate about emphasizing the importance of preventative medicine, physical activity, and healthy eating. Her interests include: integrative medicine, women’s health, mental health and international medicine. Outside the clinic she enjoys soccer, hiking, skiing, running, biking, yoga, and live music.
