Meet Our Doctors
Dr. A. A. Hayee
Dr Hayee, along with Dr Vu, started Flower Mound Interventional Pain Physicians in January of 2010. He is subspecialty certified in pain medicine. He completed fellowship in interventional pain management at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. During fellowship, he received advanced training in the field of acute and chronic pain management involving all parts of the body. His fellowship included training in interventional procedures as well as medication management. The training utilized a multi-modal approach to the management of chronic pain; requiring experiences in rehabilitation, treatment of mood disorders, cancer pain and headache treatment.
Prior to his fellowship, Dr Hayee completed residency in Anesthesiology. It was during this period, through daily encounters with patients undergoing surgery, he was drawn to the practice of pain management. He enjoyed the challenges of managing his patients’ post surgery pain and satisfaction that came with providing them relief. During this period, his research concentration was on the genetic basis of pain and the use of gene therapy to treat pain conditions. Dr Hayee was awarded the Most Outstanding Anesthesia Resident Award at the completion of residency.
Dr Hayee’s educational background includes completing medical school at Texas Tech University School of Medicine. Prior to entering medical school, he conducted research in the fields of Alzheimer’s disease and handheld biodetectors. He received his undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
Dr Hayee was raised in Orlando, Florida. He relocated to San Antonio when his father started working at Lackland Air Force Base. Slowly, most of his family relocated to the Dallas-Ft Worth Metroplex. It is his desire to be close to his family that brings Dr Hayee to the DFW area.

Dr. Rixter is an anesthesiologist and pain management specialist whose wide-ranging studies in medicine and diverse interests outside of medicine have shaped her approach to patient care that is centered on her belief in treating the whole person. A native of Northern California, she was raised in the East Bay and attended Stanford University, where she received her Bachelors Degree in Human Biology and Women’s Studies.
Upon graduating from Stanford, she spent two years at a consulting firm as a healthcare analyst. Ironically, her exposure to the healthcare field was the catalyst for her transition from healthcare analyst to healthcare practitioner by obtaining her medical degree from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. After completing her coursework, Dr. Rixter moved to Chicago for her residency training at Rush University Medical Center where she spent two years as a surgical resident before joining the Anesthesia department where she completed her residency.
Her exemplary work as an anesthesiology resident earned her a post-residency fellowship in Interventional Pain Management at the University of Texas in San Antonio.
Dr. Rixter’s medical education and clinical experiences have led her to adopt a “patients as partners” approach to her medical practice, believing that the best treatment outcomes are achieved through extensive communication and collaboration with patients. Her detailed focus on patient’s individual conditions, backgrounds and lifestyles informs her course of treatment and enables her to meet their unique needs and prepare them for a productive course of successful rehabilitation.
As an advocate for wellness and balance in life, Dr. Rixter enjoys regular exercise, Bikram yoga, and vegetarian cooking.
