Dr. Bob Harding is a board certified physician with an emphasis on integrative men's health and age management medicine.



My own journey in improving my health began when I turned 40.  I had debilitating GERD and chronic back pain and cured my symptoms by implementing lifestyle changes including dietary changes and stress reduction.  This developed into a new passion for Men’s Health.  I discovered the practice of Integrative Medicine as well as Functional Medicine and this changed the trajectory of my life and my career.  I had worked in numerous ERs in Central Texas and have held various physician leadership positions in Austin, Texas.  However, I was overworked, stressed and burnt out.  I was able to find joy in medicine again through the study and practice of Integrative, Functional and Age Management Medicine.  This transition from the Sick Care/Traditional Healthcare Model to preventive Men’s Health was accompanied by a shift in lifestyle choices as well as mindset.  Having worked as a NYC union construction worker prior to a career in medicine and working in the trenches for over a decade in various Emergency Departments, I have witnessed first-hand the low health literacy amongst men. I developed a Men’s Health Optimization Plan that includes hormone optimization, nutrition, movement, and stress reduction.  I welcome you to take charge of your health and empower yourself with the tools and knowledge to optimize your well-being.
