UT Southwestern’s family medicine physicians, part of the UT Southwestern Medical Group, integrate state-of-the-art clinical and research resources with a comprehensive focus on health. Our goal is to provide families and individuals, from newborns to seniors, with the best medical care available for every stage of life. Our physicians and health care professionals will always take time to address your health concerns and answer your questions.
Comprehensive Care for the Best Outcome
The UT Southwestern Family Medicine Clinic at Texas Health Dallas provides care for families and individuals of all ages, from wellness education, immunizations, and screenings to acute and chronic disease management. As a full-service practice, we don't just treat illness; we're also focused on preventive medicine and procedures to ensure that good health is maintained and disease is kept at bay. If specialty care is needed, our physicians will provide a referral while continuing to manage your overall care.
We offer easy access to care by providing a convenient location, same-day appointments, and a wide range of primary care services, including:
- Acute illness care, such as for sore throat, cough, and sinus infection
- Adolescent health
- Adult health
- Annual physicals, such as sports physicals, well-child exams, and well-woman exams
- Behavioral health services
- Chronic disease management for diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and other medical conditions

- Laboratory and testing services
- Men's health
- Newborn screens (Parkland HEALTHfirst plan)
- Obstetrics (prenatal care and delivery)
- Pediatric medicine

Our style of care is different from the traditional doctor-patient relationship. We want you to be an active participant in planning and managing your health care. As partners in your care, we'll share our medical expertise with you and we hope you'll take the responsibility to make healthy lifestyle choices.
The UT Southwestern Family Medicine Clinic at Texas Health Dallas is also a training facility for family medicine residents. This marks the first academic program to launch in an alliance with Texas Health Resources. Working at the clinic gives our residents valuable experience in a community-based practice.
Physicians in training are under the direct supervision of a senior physician. Our mission is to provide an environment that encourages the development of the cognitive, clinical, and procedural skills essential to cultivating a successful and productive career as a family medicine physician.
