We offer same day acute care services that may include illness, injury and pain.
We recommend that every patient have an annual physical exam or well-woman exam. An annual exam lets us focus on your health by promoting awareness of new health concerns and preventing disease with education, screening and medication management. We offer well child examinations and provide all required immunizations. We also perform the sports/school physicals. In addition, we offer a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) screening available at each physical exam.
We assist our patients in managing chronic diseases including: High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Thyroid Disorders, Asthma, COPD, and Obesity.
While surgery has previously been a mainstay of treating many orthopedic conditions, we believe in taking a conservative approach when considering surgery, so we utilize amniotic tissue products and PRP as forms of Regenerative Medicine. We previously also offered stem cell therapy because stem cells have been shown in laboratory and clinical studies to regenerate new viable tissue and cartilage. We have seen quite significant success in using stem cell therapy in our practice, however, the FDA has decided to consider stem cells as a medicine (erroneously in my opinion) and this ruling requires an expensive and several step process for companies to continue offering stem cell products. So as of July 2021, stem cells are not an option of conservative and regenerative therapy.
The conditions that are considered for these biologic treatments include:
We perform minor surgical procedures. All procedures are done with local anesthesia and the patient can drive themselves home immediately following appointment.
Cardiovascular disease is still the leading cause of death of Americans. Often our lifestyle is to blame and other times genetics are to blame. Sometimes bad genetics and unhealthy lifestyles combine to put you at even higher risk for heart attacks and strokes. Healthy lifestyle and early disease detection will greatly lower your risk for having a catastrophic event. With annual check-ups we monitor and manage your cholesterol levels and offer additional tests to assess your vascular healthy. At Timarron Family Medicine we do screening tests for obstruction in peripheral arteries like your carotid arteries and legs with quick and painless in-house testing. We can go the next level of testing in-house with full cardiac stress testing and echocardiograms. You and your provider will discuss your known risk factors to determine which tests will best identify your disease state. When appropriate, we will certainly send you for additional outside testing whether at an imaging facility or with a cardiovascular specialist.
Let’s be proactive to prevent disease rather than deal with the sometimes-devastating consequences of advanced disease. Ask your provider if cardiovascular testing is right for you.

If you live in North Texas for very long you will likely suffer from some type of seasonal, and maybe even perennial allergies. Often allergy symptoms are controlled with over-the-counter medications, but when that treatment is not enough to prevent recurrent sinus infections or just allergy symptom misery, we can do in-house allergy testing. We will review your results and, when appropriate, we will offer allergy immunotherapy shots. These shots expose your system to the allergens that make you miserable, but in very small doses repeatedly over time (1-3 years). Eventually your system becomes much less responsive to the allergens. Investing in the commitment to immunotherapy can be life changing in some cases and makes significant improvement in most patients. Ask your provider if you should be allergy tested.
At Timarron Family Medicine, we offer education about hormone replacement to our patients knowing that many of our physical and emotional symptoms can be all, or in part, due to hormone imbalances. We can check our patients’ blood for various hormone levels and provide consultation about the results. There are many options for hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and our goal is to educate you on the options, each with their associated pros and cons.
Once you have all your questions answered, you will be better prepared to make your personal choice of HRT for hormone optimization.
One option we offer is subcutaneous pellet therapy with the name brand name pellets called EvexiPEL. These pellets are either testosterone pellets or estrogen pellets. A simple and very well tolerated medical procedure is performed in the clinic to place the pellets under your skin either in the flank or buttock region.
The following is from the EvexiPEL website:
“The EvexiPEL® Method provides an integrated approach to bio-identical hormone therapy in collaboration with two of the top compounding pharmacies in the country. The safety and efficacy standards utilized in these pharmacies, as well as their proprietary formulas of oral and subcutaneous hormone products, set them above the rest. Utilizing the highest standards of delivery, combined with an integrated approach to hormone optimizations sets the EvexiPEL method apart from other Bioidentical HRT modalities.
So many of the conditions we treat in primary care are linked to obesity and unhealthy eating. Nutrition and human physiology is immensely complex and information on the Internet, on TV, and in literature is overwhelming and often contradictory. It is even somewhat confusing to us as your medical providers. We do know most people live to eat rather than eating to live. Why we eat and why we eat what we eat are key personal questions we have to answer to make changes in our lifestyle that lead to better eating and better health.
