Professionally, Dr. Linebarger is passionate about preventive medicine, mindfulness/meditation practices, and educating patients on the importance of mental health in relation to physical well-being. She holds a 200-hour certificate in Integrative and Behavioral Medicine from the University of Arizona and uses a holistic approach with her patients.

“I consider myself to be intelligent, thoughtful, direct and most importantly, compassionate. In my spare time I enjoy keeping fit, baking, SCUBA, trying new restaurants, and playing with my pups-Kali and Hank.” – Annie Linebarger, M.D.

Along with being a new face around Tekton, Dr. Linebarger also runs a direct primary care practice in Austin called Direct MD where they treat patients of all ages. Direct primary care is a modern form of personalized primary care where members pay an affordable flat monthly membership fee guaranteeing them direct access to their doctor and same or next day appointments. By eliminating the middlemen and keeping overhead low, the practice is able to provide customized quality care.

“I am excited to be part of the Tekton team… I look forward to participating in ground-breaking research, meeting trial participants, and teaming with the talented staff. Everyone here has been so welcoming that it feels as if I am hanging with friends rather than coming to work. I am happy to be here and grateful for this opportunity.” – Annie Linebarger, M.D.
