More about Dr. Theresa C Garcia, FAAFP

Dr. Tess was many things before becoming a doctor: a music teacher, an environmental health consultant, a technical writer and editor, and an OSHA safety consultant. However, in November 1993, she received the call to become a physician. The call was so clear that, within a week, she had quit her job and enrolled in the University of Maryland at College Park for pre-med coursework and began the process of applying to medical schools. She was subsequently accepted by seven different schools and chose to attend the Medical College of Virginia (Virginia Commonwealth University). She graduated on May 15, 1999, with the degree of Medical Doctor.

Dr. Tess completed her residency training at the University of Missouri at Kansas City Family Practice Residency Program. In July 2002, she became a Board-Certified Family Physician.  In January 2003, she began her NHSC service at Samuel U. Rodgers Community Health Center and in October was transferred to Rodgers-Lafayette Community Health Center in Lexington, Missouri, giving her experience in both urban and rural medicine. Dr. Tess practiced Full Scope Family Medicine, doing obstetrics and hospital work, in addition to the ambulatory care she delivered at the Health Center. 

In July 2007, Dr. Tess opened a solo practice, Garcia Family Medicine & Women’s Health, in Grain Valley, Missouri. She continued doing obstetrics and hospital work until the middle of 2012, then proceeded to do ambulatory care. Dr. Tess was called to medicine to serve her patients, particularly the underserved and underrepresented. To further her purpose, she opened a new Garcia Family Medicine in Blue Springs, Missouri, a Direct Primary Care practice, in April of 2019 to provide excellent care and healing at an affordable price, all without insurance.
