More about Dr. James R Terry, MD
Dr. Terry was born and raised in East Texas where he developed a love for sports, outdoor activities, and, most importantly, found the love of his life and best friend, his wife, Elaine. After completing high school, he spent one year at Tulane University in New Orleans, subsequently transferring to and finishing undergraduate training with a Bachelor of Arts in biology at Austin College in Sherman, TX. Following his time at Austin College, he and Elaine had the first of their three sons, the other two coming along during medical school. After obtaining his initial bachelor's degree, and prior to entering medical school, he earned a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Medical Technology Sciences at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Dallas and spent a short time working as a medical technologist. He proudly attended medical school at Southwestern Medical School and Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, achieving his MD degree in 1984. Following medical school, and adhering to his rural, small-town background, he entered specialty training at the nationally recognized Family Medicine internship and residency program at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. Dr. Terry has been practicing in the Mid Cities area since 1987, actively involved in several large, traditional, insurance-linked, office-based and hospital care groups for thirty years. It has been this experience that has helped him recognize there is a better, more easily accessible, patient-friendly, and affordable way to provide primary medical care. Welcome to Direct Primary Care. Conditions Treated Unlike specialty medical practices that are based on specific conditions which they will or will not treat, primary care physicians typically see patients of all ages and genders with multiple undeclared symptoms. Instead of you searching the internet based on your symptoms in order to self- diagnosis simply to make an appointment with a specific type of doctor, it is better to maintain an ongoing relationship with your family physician. They not only assist in making the correct diagnose, but also will provide treatment options and in most cases treat the condition diagnosed. If you do need to see a specific specialty physician or have special testing, your family physician can help determine who or what may be the best resource for you to utilize, based on your preferences and resources available. Don’t try to be a doctor before you see the doctor. Trust your family doctor to help you.
