Board-certified family medicine physician, Dr. Gary Babbitt has been practicing in the Lake Palestine area since 1991, and plans to do so for years to come. “I would love to continue the relationships that we’ve built over the years. When you take care of people for such a long time, they’re almost like family.”
Dr. Babbitt puts a lot of focus on the family, both personally and professionally. “My free time activities and hobbies involve my family foremost. I think that if you’re able to have a good close family, you’re able to form bonds more easily with your patients.”
And now he’s forming new bonds with UT Health East Texas. “I think UT Health East Texas is very family-oriented. They work together as a team and take good care of their people and their patients.”
