Dr. Mike-Mayer Educates and Engages Patients in Preventive Care
“Preventive care is the cornerstone of what we do. The focus on wellness can help reduce the need for medication and even protect patients from chronic disease.”
Robert Mike-Mayer, MD, is back in the same primary care office where he began his career over two decades ago—and he couldn’t be happier. “I’m working in a family medicine practice that understands how important quality care is for our patients and allows me to spend the time needed to provide that care.”
He’s working alongside his mentor, Dr. Peter Carrazone, whom he met in his second year of medical school. “I really admire Dr. Carrazone’s approach to patient care,” said Dr. Mike-Mayer. “He is a doctor who cares about you and really listens, who spends the time to ensure that you get the best care possible. I have seen the tremendous difference this level of care can make in patients’ health and lives.”
Dr. Mike-Mayer spent his early career working as a family physician in the office that later became part of Vanguard Medical Group. He then traveled the country, working for a company that placed him in primary care, occupational medicine and urgent care. He spent time as a primary care physician for a Wounded Warrior Transition Unit, caring for post-deployment soldiers with significant physical and mental health issues. He also helped care for firefighters and EMS personnel in the San Antonio, Texas, Fire Department Wellness Program.
“I’ve seen a lot of medical facilities, including some that were simply ‘patient factories,’” said Dr. Mike-Mayer. “I understand medicine within the constraints of insurance, but patients deserve more than a five-minute visit.”
In contrast to those “patient factories,” Dr. Mike-Mayer takes a thoughtful, thorough approach to primary care. “I like to educate and engage my patients, to get them thinking about what they are doing that impacts their health,” he said. “I take the time to listen. I take the time to get to know them, so that I can be as effective as possible for them. It truly makes a difference.”
When he’s not working, Dr. Mike-Mayer enjoys being active outdoors. He has a passion for travel and already has been fortunate enough to see many different parts of the world.
