CROCKETT – A crowd of local residents and Crockett Area Chamber of Commerce representatives turned out to welcome Dr. Michael R. McLeod and Crockett’s newest medical clinic – Texas Family Doctor.
The Chamber held a ribbon-cutting on Tuesday, June 21, at the Texas Family Doctor clinic. Located at 951 E. Loop 304, the facility offers comprehensive family medical care and promises to treat patients with “Old school values with a modern twist.” Dr. McLeod’s office offers not just the usual “in clinic” visits, but for patients bedbound or unable to travel without great difficulty, the doctor is available to make “old-fashioned” house calls. And because Dr. McLeod’s facilities use the latest technology and advances in evidence-based medicine, they can provide virtual visits and at-home monitoring services.
McLeod is a Board Certified Family Physician with over twenty years of practice in rural Texas. McLeod is a graduate of Texas A&M University with a degree in psychology, and he received his medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. McLeod has also served in faculty roles for institutions such as UTMB, Baylor College of Medicine, and the Texas A&M College of Medicine, helping train future doctors and leaders. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Practice and won a national research contest with his presentation on diabetes care. McLeod was also recognized with the first-ever Health Heroes Award from the Texas Medical Association.
