At Family Medicine Associates of Texas, we pride ourselves in offering not only local medical care but travel medicine as well.

In Carrollton, TX, our board-certified medical physicians will also provide you with the necessary information and immunizations that you will need to make your travels safer and more comfortable. Aside from immunizations and various vaccinations, we will also equip you with the proper tools and instruction on preventative insect disease care.

Traveling is an exciting adventure, but don't forget to be safe and well prepared.
"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
"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
"Dr. Moran is the best doctor I have found in a very long time. He is very thorough and really takes time to go thru everything with you. It has been years since I had my last physical, since most doctors made me feel so rushed. I will be going to see him from now on."- J.B. / Yelp / Feb 15, 2018
"I have just returned from my 30th (yes 30th) consecutive annual physical exam with FMA, with perhaps another 30 pop-up visits interspersed over the three decades. I've read each review here on Yelp, and while I would certainly never question anyone's perception of their own experience, I can honestly say that I am personally a perfect 60-for-60 in receiving exceptionally personal, professional and deeply concerned care at FMA. I started 30 years ago with the noted patriarch of FMA, Dr. Richard Honaker, whom has recently retired from his decades of "Keeping me going." However, the key to FMA is the quality of ALL of the physicians on the team, whom are interchangeable from a professionalism standpoint, and thus one is nearly always available to see you on short notice. And if the Physicians are all booked, their staff of Physician Assistants (PA's) are both phenomenal and available. I routinely request my own PA (the simply unparalleled Marla Lehmann) at a frequency ratio of 4 to 1 over my also gifted (albeit quite busy) primary physician, Dr. Jeff Hischke (whom Dr. Honaker personally matched with me upon his retirement.) And I feel quite compelled to address the complaints (and misunderstanding of) the "Two-Part" physical exam process. This system is infinitely more informative and useful than the typical "One-stop-shop," wherein your blood is drawn at the same time as your poke-and-prod...however, given the week it takes to garner the lab results, you receive no detailed review or discussion of exactly where you stand with regard to the dozens of critical health measurements and parameters within the report, and how they relate to each other, and to you personally. The one-stop-Doc will simply tell you: "If you don't hear from us, your good to go." However each measurement is a placement within lower and upper limits, and wouldn't you like to know how close to the edge of each limit you are? And what if your numbers in vital measurements are trending steeply toward a limit year-to-year (such as safely-low to very high) but have not yet exceeded that upper limit, and thus are not brought to your attention. The analysis of each these numbers, and your personal trend (which is a core element of the FMA second visit) is the most critical part of the entire exam, which is totally ignored by the "We'll call you if it's bad" approach. Furthermore, the examination of each number individually points to specific dietary, vitamin, or lifestyle changes necessary to remedy that particular issue. For instance, if you are an aging male, is it enough to simply know that your PSA (Prostate) numbers are "Within limits?" I personally prefer to know that they are "Way" within limits, and not just barely below the line, and going to blow well into the Red a year from that visit. And as far as complaints regarding billing issues, I am not qualified to comment, as I've not experienced such an issue in 30 years. In summary, this practice is "Family" to me."- D.G. / Yelp / Feb 02, 2018
"I've seen Dr. Jeffrey Stewart for almost 20 years. Dr Stewart is top notch in every way. He listens , has always been up to date on the latest drugs and procedures and has given me sound advice on multiple occasion. My entire family sees him. I like and trust him. He tells it like it is and is sensitive to wants and needs of his patience. I highly recommend Dr Stewart for your entire family"- G.H. / Google / Jan 29, 2018
Our family practice is prepared and more than happy to help you prepare for your travels. Especially when it comes to protecting you from potentially harmful insect transmitting diseases and destination-specific health conditions. Our overall goal is to properly inform you and provide you with the health care you need for safe travel. Below are the following services we offer:
Immunizations & Vaccinations
Immunizations are injections that protect you from harmful diseases. Typically, during your yearly well-exam, your doctor will discuss these with you. It's important to stay up-to-date and regularly receive immunizations to protect yourself from illnesses. Vaccinations are injections that provide protection as well by providing your body with immunity against specific organisms. By protecting yourself, you are also protecting others and your local community from harmful pathogens and diseases as well.
Consults & Recommendations
Our doctors are readily available to assist you with your travels by consulting with you on all the health information you will need to know for your trip. We will also provide you with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations as well. The CDC is a federal agency that organizes and manages preventive health care and preparedness in the United States. Heeding their professional medical advice is recommended, especially when preparing for international travel.
