Dr. Kristin Schmidt and her outstanding team see women through all the stages of their lives: the teen years, pregnancy, childbirth, and the changes that come with menopause. They provide guidance, compassion, and information for each patient in warm and welcoming surroundings. Some of the babies Dr. Schmidt has delivered are now coming to her as adults. This testifies to the outstanding care she offers.
She completed her undergraduate degree at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. She began practicing in west Houston and Katy in 2000 after completing her medical degree from the University of Texas Houston Medical Branch where she also completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology.
As a busy mom with four children, Dr. Schmidt can relate to the changes that happen over the length of a woman’s lifespan. She has personally experienced pregnancy, childbirth, and child raising along with the blessings and stresses of family life. This gives her a clear understanding of what many of her patients are experiencing and creates a strong bond.
As a fifth-generation Katy resident, Dr. Schmidt takes great pride in supporting the women of her community with an exemplary level of care. She has training in the latest technologies, including gynecologic surgery tools such as laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, and da Vinci® Robotic surgery. But the human aspect of her practice comes first. She loves getting to know her patients and forming
Dr. Schmidt offers medical services with a personal touch. Because her practice is smaller, she can stay involved in her patients’ care and works to make herself available for regular visits.
Dr. Schmidt’s greatest joy in her work is obstetrics.
“There is nothing so fulfilling as bringing new life into the world,” she says. “As a physician, it’s one of the most gratifying things I do.”
If you come to Dr. Schmidt for obstetrics services, you’ll find an experienced and educational approach. Dr. Schmidt and her staff take extra time with an expecting mom’s first visit, which usually includes a thorough physical exam, an ultrasound and possibly a complete blood panel. This provides an opportunity for any questions the expectant mom may have and any additional tests Dr. Schmidt feels are needed. Future appointments will ensure that mom and baby are progressing normally and in the very best of health. In addition, Dr. Schmidt offers hormone optimization through EvexiPel Pellet therapy for women and men to look and feel their best.
Annette Garcia may be the first of Dr. Schmidt’s team a patient will encounter. She has worked with Dr. Schmidt in other medical practices before helping her open her own current solo practice. Annette’s experience and helpful attitude will make it easy to access the care you need.
Jill Guzman, Dr. Schmidt’s nurse for over 20 years, welcomes patients with warmth and openness, ready to help them tackle any health challenges. Her compassion for others makes her a perfect fit for Dr. Schmidt’s practice.
The newest member of Dr. Schmidt’s team is Patricia Bruha, nurse practitioner. A long-time resident of the Houston area, Patty completed the women’s health care nurse practitioner program at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver, Colorado, where she began her advanced practice nursing career at Kaiser-Permanente. She was exposed to OB-GYN care as a student nurse and knew she had found her place. Her priorities center around strong listening skills and treating patients with respect, kindness, and dignity. She provides a generous amount of patient education to ensure her patients have all the information they need to make the best decisions regarding their health.
Alda Patiño has been with Dr. Schmidt as a wellness and aesthetic consultant for several years. Her extensive experience gives her the background she needs to help patients achieve health inside and outside. Alda holds certifications in Botox/ Dysport and hyaluronic fillers and body sculpting. She is peptide certified through Evexias and Tailor Made Compounding and has been a licensed professional laser technician since 2012.
