We offer several clinical studies at our family practice in Carrollton, TX. A clinical study is an organized medical research investigation that works to better understand medicine, a medical strategy, or device to determine its safety and efficiency on humans. Typically, a panel of medical professionals will lead and oversee the study. Individuals can volunteer to participate in the study as long as they meet the specific medical requirements. Family Medicine Associates of Texas is excited and proud to perform such studies to advance modern medicine. Our practice strives to become better and wants to approach medicine with an open mind. Medical research and data provide our board-certified physicians with more knowledge and understanding of complex medical issues.

"I'm being seeing Dr. Joey Hamilton for over 25 years and he's been a great advocate to help me with any of my sicknesses or illnesses. Always stresses the importance of an annual physical, flu shoot and blood work. I've recommended Family Medicine a number of times to friends and family members. The entire staff is truly professional and always very helpful when trying to set an appointment on a tight schedule. Never once have I been charged for something that wasn't performed. They are always pleasant and polite when checking in and out."- T.R. / Yelp / Jan 17, 2019
