Integrative Medicine Physician / Austin, TX
After Dr. Maltz earned a Medical Degree and Master in Public Health from the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston, TX, she completed a combined Internal and Preventive Medicine Residency at UTMB. She then pursued and completed a 2-year clinical Integrative Medicine Fellowship at Stamford Hospital, in Stamford, Connecticut.
During her Fellowship, she underwent clinical training in Medical Acupuncture, trigger point injections, meditation, spirituality, clinical nutrition, mind-body therapies, botanicals and herbs, as well as an intensive 1000-hour online curriculum created by The University of Arizona Integrative Medicine Program founded by Dr. Andrew Weil. During this time, she also completed a 300-hour Medical Acupuncture course through the State University of New York (SUNY) Downstate.
Dr. Maltz’s specific interests include helping her patients improve their health through lifestyle interventions including, but not limited to, eastern medical practices, nutrition, botanicals, mind-body techniques and decreasing environmental exposures.
She is a practitioner of Peggy Huddleston’s “Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster” program – a guided imagery technique clinically proven to decrease pre-surgical anxiety and post-surgical use of pain medications as well as decrease healing time of all types of surgeries – and the Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT) program created by Jean Kristeller, PhD.
She spent the last year of her four-year medical residency participating in health policy, cancer prevention and environmental health rotations. She spent two years living in Albuquerque, NM, working as an Assistant Professor at the University of New Mexico’s School of Medicine while practicing at the UNM Center For Life.
Dr. Maltz is a member of the Texas Medical Association and the Travis County Medical Society. She served on the Board of Directors of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine from 2013 – 2015. She is a proud graduate of the University of Texas at Austin where she received her undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in Biology.
In her recreational time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, practicing yoga, meditation, dancing, hiking, cooking healthfully and exploring the world through travel and cultural exchange.
“Came to see Dr. Maltz after feeling hopeless and untrusting of the other doctors I had seen. Not only do I prefer her method of care, she took time to genuinely listen and consider all of my concerns and addressed each issue as well as formulating a treatment plan. All of this information is easily accessible through a convenient online portal and responses are timely and sincere. Great experience so far.”
