Nick Sims, MD, started his career as a military surgeon, completing an internship in orthopedic surgery before serving in the military. He went back to complete a family medicine residency in 2009 and now serves as a military surgeon for the Warrior Transition Brigade, Fort Hood, Texas, and as owner and chief medical officer for Quick Care Walk In Clinic, North Austin, Texas. Dr. Anderson uses his training for the management of simple fractures and common sports injuries, occasionally working the sidelines for high school sporting events. He also has Federal Aviation Administration designation as an Aviation Medical Examiner, which allows him to offer health care to both military and civilian pilots.
Through his two practices, he is able to serve two very distinct medical communities. At his military practice, Dr. Anderson focuses on full-spectrum adult medicine and flight medicine, often seeing issues common to pilots, soldiers and veterans returning from war, including behavioral health and sports injury components coupled with routine health maintenance and screening. The Quick Care clinic serves a predominantly Spanish-speaking and underserved population, and the care is focused on urgent care medicine, patient education and access to care for a population that might otherwise only be able to utilize the emergency room for routine care.
