The Capital Medical Clinic traces its origin to the beginning of Dr. Charles Milton Darnall’s practice in March, 1934 at the Norwood Building in downtown Austin. Originally from Llano, Texas, Dr. Darnall completed his residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota in Internal Medicine and started his practice upon completion. Dr. Darnall’s practice was interrupted by his service in World War II. Soon after the war, he was joined in 1948 by Dr. Horace E. Cromer, also from the Mayo Clinic. In 1957, the practice was joined by Dr. Frances M. Pearce, and later, Dr. Grover L. Bynum. These original founders became the Capital Medical Clinic, named in part for the later renamed Norwood Building, which became the Capital National Bank Building.
The clinic had grown to seven member doctors, all trained at the Mayo Clinic, when the practice moved to the Medical Park Tower in June, 1968, where it still is today. As the originator of the group practice concept in Central Texas, Capital Medical Clinic has been privileged to continue to attract other superbly trained internists. Our philosophy has always been to offer the best Internal Medicine care available. With a shifting focus from treating illness to a proactive method of preventive medicine, Capital Medical Clinic has become a leader in wellness care. Our group continues to grow with an established history and a progressive future.
