Our Services


Our mission is to be the best and the friendliest medical center in Dallas. They say laughter is the best medicine. Drug stores can't fill a prescription for it, but at the very least we'll load you up with a big dose of smiles while you're here. Laughter brings relief from pain and that's a great way to start on the road to a more rapid recovery.

For more than 20 years, we've been helping, healing, mending and making Texans well in a meticulously-maintained clean, germ-free environment. When you come to BestCare, you won't just see the doctor on duty; you'll see the friendly face of a doctor you know. Our X-rays and lab work is less expensive than at the corporate chains.

BestCare Family Medical Center is easy to find and offers the benefit of two clinics under one roof. Our Immediate Service Center takes walk-ins and urgent care patients — no appointment necessary. For even faster service, schedule an appointment online or by phone. We can see you at lunch time, after work or on the weekends. We're centrally located in Garland Tx, and we also serve Dallas, Mesquite, Richardson, Rowlett, Rockwall, Wylie, Sachse and the surrounding communities. Call BestCare at 972-240-1789 to schedule an appointment today.
