We love when our providers and team members continue to grow with us. We recently had a transfer that brought one of our talented providers, Thomas Auxter, D.O., from our Fort Myers primary care clinic to our Venice location. Dr. Auxter joined our team in Fort Myers almost a year ago, and he’s happy to now make VIPcare Venice his home, where he’s currently building his family of patients.
Dr. Auxter is board-certified in family medicine and brings over 35 years of experience.
Who is Dr. Thomas Auxter?
Dr. Auxter was born in Kirksville, MO, also the birthplace of osteopathic medicine and its founding college. His father was even an osteopathic surgeon. So, it would seem that Dr. Auxter was almost destined to follow a path into medicine, having grown up with its presence all around him.
“It’s all I know,” he said. “I like the challenge of doing things that are tough. It’s very rewarding.”
While working with his father at the local hospital, Dr. Auxter got his first dose of what the medical field had to offer when he was just 16 years old. He assisted his father with nearly 2,000 surgeries before even starting his journey through medical school.
Naturally, Dr. Auxter earned his medical degree from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine. As a physician, he strongly believes in quality over quantity and spending the necessary time with his patients to discuss their medical issues and concerns.
“I don’t want them to leave the clinic with a question,” he said. “I want all questions answered.”
Dr. Auxter has extended his compassionate care for others beyond the clinic as he combined two of his passions – medicine and flying. He was a search and rescue pilot for 20 years and a charter member of Homeland Security following 9/11.
