Welcome to Thrive

Dr. Anna Vawter, MD FAAD founded Thrive Family Dermatology to deliver personalized, high-quality dermatologic care to the individuals and families of Allen, Fairview, Frisco, Lucas, McKinney, Murphy, Parker, Plano, Wylie and surrounding areas.

We forge a partnership with each patient so that every individual is empowered with a clear understanding of their personalized treatment plan.

You have the opportunity to speak with a Doctor of Medicine at every appointment. Only an American Board of Dermatology certified doctor will evaluate new problems, make changes to your therapy, and perform medical procedures. At these vital points in your care, you will not be seen by a substitute for the physician, such as a physician’s assistant or nurse practitioner.

“Dr. Vawter performed a miracle on me. I have never seen a doctor as capable and as kind before. She was professional yet caring during the entire process of several months until I was healed. She did a lot of research and was instrumental in healing me both physically and emotionally. I cannot thank her enough and recommend her to anyone with any form of skin problems.”

– Teresa M.

“One of the most pleasant experiences I’ve had at a doctor’s office. The positive energy of the doctor and the entire staff shines through, and you almost forget you’re there for a medical reason! The level of care and honesty is equal to one’s own family member.”

– Somaya S.

“Everyone in the office is friendly and helpful. I didn’t have a long wait to be seen. The doctor was kind, explained her findings, and gave me her recommendations based on those findings. She made the care I received a joint effort between herself and me.”
