General Summary

Dr. Fain's interest in medicine came naturally as his father, brother, sister-in-law, wife and nephew are all physicians. After completing a 3 year fellowship in hematology and medical oncology at UT Southwestern Medical School Dr. Fain and his family moved to Austin in 1996. As a physician he has strived to care for patients as he would care for his family, a practice inspired by his father's own practice style.
