Gary D. Babbitt, MD, is a board-certified family medicine physician, who has been practicing in the Lake Palestine area since 1991. “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 emphasizes focus on the family, both personally and professionally. “My free time activities and hobbies always involve my family first. I think that if you have a good relationship with your family, then you’re able to form bonds more easily with your patients.”

And now he’s continuing to build those bonds with UT Health East Texas Physicians Flint. “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.”

Dr. Babbitt earned his bachelor’s at Tarleton State University and his doctor of medicine at The University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio.
