Rep. Tom Oliverson, MD (House District 130) is practicing anesthesiologist and a partner in US Anesthesia Partners, the largest anesthesiology group in Texas with over 1,100 anesthesia providers. A tireless advocate for patients and their safety, Dr. Oliverson is recognized as an expert in office-based anesthesia and consults with doctors and dentists throughout the state in order to make office surgery safer for patients. 

First elected in 2016, Dr. Oliverson serves as Vice Chairman of the House Insurance Committee and was the lead House author of legislation (SB 1264) in 2019 which bans surprise (or balance) billing in most cases in Texas. During his first term in the legislature, his Republican colleagues voted him the “Best Freshman Legislator” of the 2017 session.

Dr. Oliverson volunteers by working with and supporting many community and charitable organizations such as Boy Scouts of America (he is a proud Eagle Scout), Family Life Ministries, and many more. He and his wife Jennifer, a certified teacher, are active members of Jersey Village Baptist Church and live in Cypress where they raise and home school their three children.
