K. Paul Gerstenberg, D.O.

K. Paul Gerstenberg, D.O. received his premedical degree from Lamar University in Beaumont, TX. He then went on to the University of North Texas Health Sciences Center at Fort Worth to receive his Doctor of Osteopathy degree in 1993. He served his residency at St. Anthony Hospital in Oklahoma City, then went to serve three years in the United States Air Force at Barksdale AFB, Louisiana. After completing his tour of duty, he stayed in Shreveport, Louisiana for two years in private practice. In 2001, he had the opportunity to relocate his wife and five children near his hometown (Beaumont) to Nederland, Texas. Dr. Gerstenberg practices the full realm of family practice, from newborn care to senior care. He has a great interest in preventative medicine, including osteopathic manipulation, when needed, and enjoys working with pediatric and adolescent concerns. He offers traditional medical care, but loves to provide nutritional and alternative approaches ("Functional Medicine") when his patients are interested -- truly trying to practice preventive healthcare...naturally!

Dr Gerstenberg serves as Port Neches, Texas’ local health authority. He was approached in 2015 to step into this role and stays apprised of current medical and public health concerns, such as Zika virus updates, influenza trends and public health issues that may affect our community.
