Our highly-trained and skilled physicians in Carrollton, TX can work with you to identify the cause and current condition of your mental well-being. You may feel alone or trapped in a sea of thoughts inside your head but you are not. Our compassionate and caring staff are here to help you whether your condition is situational, due to trauma, abuse, or a chemical imbalance.
"Dr. Laibstain is the best doctor I've had. She's very attentive with you and has amazing bed side manners. She makes an effort to understand a patient as a whole and explain how different things affect their health. She also stays on top of lab results and goes over the results individually to help you interpret and understand what they really mean."- K. / Healthgrades / Apr 27, 2018
"Dr. Stewart had been my primary care physician for 17 years, and I couldn't be happier. He has seen me through all the ups and downs of an autoimmune disease, birthing and raising children, and the many physical and psychological / emotional challenges I've encountered through the years. He has done all of this with great compassion and kindness. I never feel rushed when I am in his office because he takes ample time to listen to my concerns and to address them. When I am unable to get in to see Dr. Stewart, Family Medicine is always able to get me into another physician or nurse practitioner quickly. It's a wonderful, efficient office with excellent medical care. I'll never change our health care provider for as long as we live in North Texas."- C.R. / Yelp / Feb 04, 2018
"No issues with the office staff. Everything seems to run smoothly. They've updated their clinic, it's nice. I see Marla Lehmann, who is very sweet and who is always spot on for diagnoses. Blood work is a little extra money, but you should always expect that it will be. Most insurances don't include it in the co-pay. They will bill you. Not a big deal. Overall very happy with Family Medicine Associates. I've been coming for years. I will suggest you see only the doctors highly recommended in these reviews though - I once saw Bethany who was very nasty to me, and another doctor (can't remember her name) who was very pushy and decided to run every blood test in the book for me for a simple diagnosis."- V.A. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2018

"I have been going to Dr Stewart for 3 yrs now, wait time has always been less than 5 min, he is on top of everything including what shots you need now that I am 60. As being a woman he makes me feel very comfortable, I have to say he is the most professional doctor I have ever seen. Thank you"- S.B. / Healthgrades / Mar 10, 2018

Managing your stress is very important to your overall mental health. In today's fast-paced world, your work schedule, social, and home-life can become so demanding that it negatively affects your mental well-being. Too much stress can negatively impact your mental clarity, how you approach situations, decrease your physical energy, and cause you to become pessimistic or depressed. Simple lifestyle changes are sometimes all it takes to improve your overall mood and stress. Breathing exercises and rest can also decrease your stress level.
Depression & Anxiety
Depression is a brain disorder that causes a person to feel unhappy or sad. It can sometimes be so debilitating that an individual may lose interest in a favorite past-time or may not want to get out of bed. Anxiety causes feelings of worry or fear, which can negatively impact your daily life. These feelings can also prevent a person from trying new things or even leaving the house. Managing depression and anxiety can significantly improve your mood and mental-well-being.
