Beverly B. Nuckols, MD is Board Certified in Family Medicine and passed her American Board of Family Practice certification exam for the third time in July 2007. She graduated from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Medical School (1990) and Family Practice Residency (1993), and earned a Masters of Arts in Bioethics from Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois (2007).
Dr. Nuckols worked in private practice as a Family Physician in New Braunfels, Texas for over 10 years.

She has given invited testimony to Committees in both the Texas House of Representatives and Senate and has been invited to speak about bioethics at annual conferences of the Texas Democrats for Life and the Republican Texas Conservative Conference, as well as various church groups and political clubs. Beverly has posted as “hocndoc” on FReeRepublic.com since 1998, chased Texas’ Democratic Senators when they ran away to New Mexico in 2003 to avoid redistricting, and she has a blog and website called “LifeEthics.org”.
