At Complete Medicine in San Antonio, TX and The Woodlands, TX, Arti Thangudu, MD, is a diabetes, endocrinology, and thyroid specialist who offers customized solutions to help patients get where they want to be. The membership-based practice provides a supportive and safe environment that’s free of judgment, so patients can openly share their whole story as well as their health concerns and goals, without ever feeling rushed.

The practice specializes in the treatment of many endocrine and metabolic conditions, including diabetes, thyroid disease, pituitary disease, high cholesterol, adrenal disease, and osteoporosis. Complete Medicine also offers hormonal care for transgender patients as well as those with low testosterone.

The team at Complete Medicine values patient time and strives to make health care as hassle-free as possible. After a patient’s initial visit, follow-up appointments are conducted via telemedicine or in person for patients' convenience. Because the practice doesn’t take health insurance, Dr. Thangudu has a smaller patient load and makes herself readily available to her patients by phone, text, or email.

Because it is fully aware of the skyrocketing costs of prescription medications, the practice works closely with each patient to make sure they take only the medications they need. Instead, focus is placed on health coaching and a plant-based diet to prevent, treat, and reverse chronic disease, so patients can reduce their medications.

With a patient-centered, evidence-based approach to care, Complete Medicine is dedicated to optimizing health and wellness. Call the office or enroll online today.

"It is rare to find a physician with whom you can comfortably trust your life. Even more unusual is to find a physician who treats the whole person, body, soul, and mind. Dr. Thangudu is an active listener who practices person-centered medicine. To practice that way takes quality time with the patient. Dr. Thangudu never gives the impression she is pressed by the clock. She could practice what I refer to as “cattle call” medicine but chooses not to do that. Medical school cannot teach caring. That comes from within the physician herself. She looks at you when speaking and not only listens but actually hears you when you speak. She is a doctor you can call on the phone. She is a doctor who will actually call YOU on the phone. I believe Dr. Thangudu sees the practice of medicine as a collaborative effort between a well-informed patient and a highly qualified and attentive physician. In my 72 years I’ve found only 3 or 4 physicians that practice this kind of medicine. Dr. Thangudu is one. I am blessed to have found her."

The Insurance Fallacy

Pricing transparency brings down medical costs. Patients operate under the impression that they pay for insurance to decrease their out of pocket medical expenses. Sadly, this is a fallacy. We'll show you how you can get more value for fewer dollars.

Why Lifestyle Medicine?

If you have made it to age 50 without chronic prescription drugs, you are in the vast minority. 75% of people over 50 are on chronic prescriptions. Chronic diseases are now the norm...


Words from our patients
