McClennan County Family Practice Residency Program
Dr. Kristel Leubner grew up in Hamshire, Texas, dreaming of becoming a physician. As a child, she used to pretend to care for her dolls. Her mother, who was studying microbiology at the time, let her thumb through her textbooks. She remembers sounding out the long medical words and being fascinated by the pictures.
After attending the University of Texas, she received her medical degree from the University of North Texas Health Science Center, Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Dr. Leubner became a family medicine practitioner because she enjoys caring for patients of all ages. She chose to practice at St. Joseph because she found its core values of reverence, service and stewardship to be consistent with her own.
Married to Jeff, the couple has one son, Grant. In her free time, Dr. Leubner likes to read, play basketball and spend time with her family. The Leubners are avid fishers and skiers and members of Elizabeth Lutheran Church, in Caldwell.
