Germ-Free Spaces

clean-waiting-room

At BestCare we keep our spaces as clean and germ-free as possible. Hands are washed multiple times throughout the day and all facilities are cleaned and surfaces sterilized. When seeing sick patients, our caregivers wear disposable gloves so nothing is transmitted from one patient to another.

Some types of infections can be contagious even before symptoms appear. Therefore, we take the necessary steps to prevent the spread of bacterial, viral, or parasitic diseases. Such precautions are the same for all forms of diseases and thus we follow them consistently. The single most important precaution is hand washing. Other universal precautions include properly disinfecting touch points including door knobs, arm rests, restrooms and more.

At Bestcare Family Medical Center we've always provided your family with the best family care and urgent care available in Dallas County. Just walk in for Urgent Care or call 972-240-1789 to schedule an appointment today.

Expert care + unique decor makes BestCare fun

As an avid collector of antiques and collectibles, Dr. Carlson presents many of his favorites at BestCare. These change all the time, so there's always something new to see and enjoy!

belong to the doctor.

A doctor's eyes can tell him a lot. His ears can tell him more. Because listening and healing go hand in hand.

It's no accident D Magazine named us the "Best Doctors in Dallas" for Family Medicine. For more than 20 years, we've been healing, mending and making Texans well in a meticulously clean facility. When you come to BestCare you'll see the friendly face of a doctor you know. BestCare Family Medical Center is easy to get to and offers two choices: Our Urgent Care Center takes walk-ins—no appointment necessary. Or set an appointment online or by phone for Primary Care.
