David Bushore, M.D. is the sole owner of Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics and is known to many as the premier source for cosmetic, medical and surgical dermatology in Austin, Texas. Dr. Bushore and his extraordinary medical and aesthetics team, take pride in creating a warm, family-like environment for all patients, and regularly receive positive feedback on how efficient, friendly and accommodating they are towards patients. Dr. Bushore enjoys being able to meet the medical, surgical, and cosmetic needs of patients of all ages from infant to geriatric. He enjoys the personalization of care: realizing that even though many people may have the same condition, every person’s treatment must be tailored to fit their specific needs. Dr. Bushore makes time to help his patients feel heard and lets them know their concerns are important. He enjoys the long-standing relationships he builds with his patients and is grateful for the privilege to care for them.

Dr. Bushore is known for his extraordinary ability to help patients address individual skin issues and restore optimal balance. Yet, he also has a keen interest in the aesthetic nature of his work. This focus is apparent from how he sutures wounds to cosmetic interventions. He enjoys the artistry associated with Botox® and fillers, as well as how subtle improvements with these minor procedures can have dramatic effects on a patient’s self-image. Known to his patients as a physician who has a keen eye for detail, Dr. Bushore’s primary goal is to give his cosmetic patients the Austin Natural Look™, a very specific cosmetic treatment approach that enhances one’s own beauty, yet still maintaining a healthy, natural appearance. He has carved a niche for himself by adhering to more natural-looking cosmetic interventions and specialized techniques. Many of Dr. Bushore’s patients are thrilled with their results and how their enhancements are not obvious.

Dr. Bushore was born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee. After completing medical school and dermatology residency at the University of Tennessee, he moved to Austin in August, 2003 and joined Balcones Dermatology Associates. He was a participating physician at the Volunteer Healthcare Clinic from 2007-2014 where he donated his medical services to assist underserved populations. Once a month from 2008-2014, Dr. Bushore volunteered his time to teach dermatology residents who were part of the University of Texas Southwestern dermatology program in Austin. Dr. Bushore also teaches 4th year medical students on clinical rotations from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. Since Dr. Bushore greatly benefited from the sage advice of his mentors, he feels it is important to help cultivate the talents of the next generation of dermatologists.
