Laura Suttin, MD, MBA, MCPDC

physician, coach, entrepreneur



I’m a family physician, entrepreneur, and certified coach. I am a San Antonio native where I live with my husband and our 4 children. I attended medical school in Houston, completed my residency training in Corpus Christi, and later received an MBA from the University of Texas at Dallas.

Coaching has been life-changing for me over the past 10 years. Working with a coach has enabled me to move from a frustrated new mom physician, who sought validation and didn’t prioritize self-care, to a thriving, purposeful, empowered woman and leader. I founded The Purposeful MD in 2021 with the mission to help other physicians find their true purpose.

My other joys in life are my family, travel, camping, reading, writing, being outdoors, and running/ triathlon.
