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.

I have had very positive experiences with both Dr. Babbitt and his office staff. Although he is only working one week per month now that he is semi-retired, as long as you schedule appts in advance I have had no problems seeing him. I find him to be very calming and very knowledgeable- and he doesn't talk to me like I'm uneducated or 6 years old - something some doctors do and I personally find highly irritating when it happens.

11 years of great personal care. Great staff. New facilities. Good location.

As a nurse, I often get frustrated due to doctors who aren't as knowledgeable as I, or who don't listen. Dr. Babbitt is an exception. He keeps up to date on medications and treatments and is willing to work with you to reach a treatment that not only works for you, but is within your budget and your goals. He takes time to listen and doesn't just discount what you're saying because you're a woman. It doesn't surprise me that he is so popular. BTW, his NP Bethany is also fantastic
