Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology
“I enjoy caring for women with both normal and high-risk pregnancies and have extensive experience in treating complex gynecologic conditions including infertility, fibroid tumors, pelvic pain, and urinary incontinence. I encourage my patients to become very involved in their care and use discussion and patient education to achieve best outcomes. I always am interested in hearing about new information my patients find on the web.”
Dr. Nunnelly began private practice in Austin in 1981. He joined our group practice in 1983, then called Drs. Des Rosiers & Wernecke, Associates. He has served as President of the group since 1995. Dr. Nunnelly has acquired extensive experience caring for normal and high-risk pregnancies, as well as complex gynecologic conditions including abnormal bleeding, fibroid tumors, abnormal Pap smears, infertility, and pelvic pain. He has special training and experience in sonography, providing services for his patients and other physicians. He has surgical expertise in almost all gynecologic procedures including laparoscopic procedures, use of laser, and vaginal surgery.

He receives referrals from primary care and other OG/GYN physicians for the treatment and care of patients with these conditions. He also serves his colleagues with expert medical opinions in legal matters.
