A. Elizabeth Shivone MD
Dr. Shivone was born and raised in San Antonio. After attending Alamo Heights High School, she went to Yale University where she graduated with a BA in History. She returned to San Antonio after college to serve as Executive Director of the San Antonio New World Wine and Food Festival—now Culinaria—for two years prior to deciding to attend medical school. She received her MD at UT Health Science Center in San Antonio and attended residency at the Christus Santa Rosa Family Medicine Program.
After residency, she worked for Christus Physician Group for three years doing outpatient medicine before joining Health By Design, where she was recruited to be one of the founding doctors for Valero Headquarters Family Wellness Center. Dr. Shivone was drawn to Family Medicine as a specialty where she could take a holistic, comprehensive approach to the patient and fully address and care for a patient’s needs.
She cares for patients of all ages and loves taking care of the whole family. She treats acute conditions and chronic diseases, dose minor office procedures such as skin biopsies, sutures for minor lacerations, and some joint injections. She also has expertise in the Marquette and Sympto Thermal methods of Natural Family Planning. Until early September 2018, Dr. Shivone lived in San Antonio with her husband and their four children, where she served as President of the Catholic Physicians Guild and served on the Medical Advisory Board for Catholic Charities. She moved with her family to the Washington, D.C. area so her husband could pursue his PhD. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, swimming, gardening, reading, going to museums, and spending time with her husband and children.
