Robert P. Wills, MD

Dr. Wills was raised in Lexington, Kentucky before moving to Texas and attending the University of Texas at Austin, where he graduated with a BA in Zoology with honors.  He then attended medical school at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, where he met his wife Danielle, and ultimately graduated with several academic and leadership honors.  

Following medical school, Dr. Wills performed a general surgery internship and residency at Parkland Hospital in Dallas.  He then completed his residency in anesthesiology at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, Washington, where he served as Chief Resident in 1996.  After residency, he and Danielle returned to Austin with their two young daughters, where Dr. Wills has been a full-time board-certified anesthesiologist and pain management physician in private practice for the past 20 years.  

In addition to the two daughters born in Seattle, Dr. and Mrs. Wills have a twin daughter and son born in Austin, along with a great dane, a chihuahua and a hairless cat to keep them busy.  Their four children grew up in Eanes ISD and graduated from Westlake High school.  

When not practicing medicine, Dr. Wills and his wife are obsessed with their new grandson, spend a lot of quality time with their adult children boating on Lake Austin and spending time outdoors, and try to go snowboarding in Colorado every winter.
