Licensed to practice medicine in the state of Texas since 1997, Dr. Irwin has developed several specialties in her realm as a urogynecologist.

For a year (1992 – 1993), she was a clinical research nurse in cardiology under Dr. R. W. Smalling at the University of Texas Health and Science Center at Houston. During that same time, she was a critical care agency nurse with Pulse Medical Staffing in Houston, TX until 1996 when she went to medical school. From 2000 – 2013, Dr. Irwin served as the medical director for family planning clinics in Hays County and surrounding areas. She came on board at the San Marcos, TX Caring Center for Women in 2000 as an OBGYN.

While earning a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from the University Texas-El Paso, College of Nursing and Allied Health, Dr. Irwin was a member of their National Honor Society, Dean's List, and their International Honor Society for Nursing (Sigma Theta Tau). Then, she went on study medicine at the University of Health Science Center at Houston and earned her Doctorate in Medicine in 1996. She was recognized as a member of their Medical Honor Society (Alpha Omega Alpha). For her internship and residency, Dr. Irwin was accepted into the OBGYN program at the Baylor College of Medicine from 1996 – 2000.

Dr. Irwin is a mother of three sons and loves to live an active lifestyle in body, mind, and spirit. She has participated in several missionary trips as a medical volunteer. In 2005 – 2007, she traveled with the First United Methodist Church group several times to Puebla, Mexico.

Teresa Irwin, MD, FACOG, FPMRS Reviews (46)

Annual Well Woman Exam

Dr. Irwin was thorough in her examination and she listens and responds to all of my questions and concerns. Dr. Irwin cares deeply about my personal wellbeing.

Virtual Visit / Telemedicine

I had a lot of questions for Dr. Irwin regarding a pending non-gynecological surgery. She answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable that previous gynecological surgery would not be a hinderance to pending colorectal surgery. She assured me that the previous surgery would like complicate the pending surgery. She gave me peace of mind.

Annual Well Woman Exam

The doctor I was originally supposed to see was on call with the hospital and got called away. So, that put my appointment behind, which is no big deal. Dr. Teresa Irwin, who had been my gynecologist for 17 years, stepped in to help. She is absolutely fantastic! She has ALWAYS been there for me, through thick and thin. She has always been proactive and has taken excellent care of me all these years. It is always a true pleasure to get to see her. In addition to being one of the best doctors around, she is also incredibly kind and sweet. She truly is a one of a kind, amazing person with such a beautiful heart and soul. I am so lucky to have had her all these years.

Everyone was so kind the day I went in. Wanted to change my appointment and was worked in with out much of a wait time. Appreciated all the young ladies that work there. Thank you.

New Patient Visit

The office is clean and attractive and has enough staff to accommodate your needs. Dr. Irwin is professional and is inquisitive about the interests of her patients which is refreshing these days when so many professional health care facilities have a reputation of herding people in and out like cattle.

Office Visit / Follow-up

During my many moves and having to re-establish with a new gyn, NEVER have I had a doctor like Dr. Irwin! She is simply amazing; her knowledge and confidence as a doctor and skills as a surgeon set her far above and apart from most in her field! The added benefit of her amazing, bubbly personality is only a bonus; she makes me feel confident in our choices about my overall health and there isn't an area I feel uncomfortable about discussing with her. Her clinic is amazingly clean and comfortable and the staff is very accommodating and efficient with all her patients.
