Developing Rheumatoid Arthritis, Dr. Pinkston has struggled for years to find harmony with health once more, and her struggle has led to current studies in a Fellowship with MCII through the American Academy of AntiAging Medicine or A4M and she is also applying for Board Certification in Integrative Medicine through a program through George Washington University. Having been ill, Dr. Pinkston has understood the deep struggles of balancing family life with work and health and the impracticalities of living well in American life. “Finding Functional and Integrative Medicine has changed my life and health, and the freedom of nutrition and natural medicine combined with contemporary medicine has given me the power to take my own health in control again- to live again!” states Dr. Pinkston. She continues, “Finding quality comprehensive care has been a challenge and my struggle has left me empathetic to the struggles of those searching for their health again, their quality of life and longevity. I am extremely passionate about providing the right answers to patients about their medical care. Each patient is like a son or a daughter or a mom or dad or a sister or brother to me. No one seen is left to feel alone in their struggle.” Voted “Super Doc” by her peers, voted “Most Compassionate Doctor” by patients, voted “Top Doc” as seen in San Antonio Magazine, Dr. Pinkston combines caring, empathy and knowledge in one package. Dr. Pinkston states, “My Mission is to put the heart in medicine again by focusing on the individual and their needs and by healing the mind, body and soul!
