About Gregg A. Vagner, MD

  • Dr. Vagner was born in Chicago but grew up in San Antonio. When he’s not working, he “absolutely” loves spending time with his family, traveling together, enjoying what Austin has to offer, or just sitting around watching TV together. Dr. Vagner also considers himself “a little bit of a wine nerd,” and enjoys reading, books, skiing, and traveling. His favorite local spots are the Highland Lakes, whether from the deck of a restaurant or on a boat. He also loves downtown Austin, and the city’s great restaurants!

I remember choosing to be a physician when I was in the 7th grade, as I was very interested in sciences and loved interacting and serving people, and trying to improve their lives. I chose hand surgery because I really enjoy the intricacies of the procedures and how amazingly engineered the hand is. In my practice, I always try to follow the Golden Rule, imagining how I would want to be treated. I approach my patients with empathy and try to equip them with the knowledge about their condition so that together, we can arrive at the best possible treatment plan.
