About Dr. Edwards McReynolds

Memorial Psychiatry Building

I am born and raised in Galveston, Texas and earned my Bachelor degree In 1963 from the University of Texas in Austin majoring in biology. I received my MD degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch (UMTB) in Galveston in May 1967. I took a rotating internship at Hermann Hospital in Houston the following year. I did my general psychiatry residency the next 2 years, where I also had a morning job administering electroconvulsive treatments under supervision. I then transferred to Menninger School of Psychiatry in Topeka, Kansas where I completed my Child and Adolescent Psychiatric residency.  Following this, I served 2 years at Williford Hall Hospital, Lackland Air Force in San Antonio, Texas where I ran a Child Guidance Clinic and taught child and adolescent psychiatry.

I started my private practice with a group practice in Houston after completing my military obligation. While in this group, I enrolled in an after-hours Psychoanalytic training course that required heavy academic classroom time in addition to my own personal analysis and the training cases. I also had analytic patients under supervision. I completed that program but chose to have very limited analytic cases.

My practice through the years has usually involved hospital and office practice. Several other psychiatrists and I founded and built a private Psychiatric hospital in Houston – West Oaks Hospital, which was very successful for many years. I served as Medical Director there for many years and also directed an adolescent unit. My group also established a residential program for adolescents and young adults in Houston, and I was the medical director of a series of group homes that was connected with West Oaks Hospital.

In the last several years, I have maintained a private practice as well as being Medical Director for several eating disorder programs. Currently, I am only involved in outpatient psychiatry.I am a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association where I have been a member for many years and I am a long-standing member of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

I was married for 50 years and have 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren. My children and grandchildren spent many of their formative years on weekends and holidays at our River House on the Comal River in New Braunfels, Texas and our small family farm in Brenham that we affectionately called “Happy Hollow,” where we spent many hours gardening, swimming, driving the 4 wheel Mule, hanging out and interacting with our pet Longhorn, “ Buddy” and a small herd of miniature donkeys.

I have been an an avid UT supporter and am a Life Member of Texas Exes. Life has been good to me and I hope I have given as much as I received.
