Your New Medical Home

We make care accessible and affordable for you and your family.

Our Mission

To improve the health of families and individuals by offering the highest level of service and care through access to affordable and comprehensive medical, dental and behavioral health services, regardless of the ability to pay.

Our Vision

We aspire to be a leader in improving the lives of people in underserved communities by building caring, personal relationships with families, individuals and the community.

Our History

Since 2010 Foremost Family Health Centers expanded to include dental hygiene, behavioral health, and podiatry.

With a commitment to the original mission and a pledge to expand services across the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex, Foremost Family Health Centers opened its second medical office in January 2014 in Balch Springs, Texas.

Family health and wellness services have historically been holistic and comprehensive while offering continuity of care. As Foremost Family Health Centers, the organization will build on its history and take healthcare to the next level, health services to the home and telehealth/telemedicine.

Care for the Community

Delivering world class health care in an accessible and affordable way
I come from a family health history of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and asthma. As a person who is managing diabetes, high cholesterol, a heart condition, and thyroid disease with medicine, adjusting my eating habits, trying to exercise regularly, reducing stress, daily prayer and maintaining a positive attitude, I can attest that it does take a village to make a difference in a person’s life. MLK, Jr. Family Clinic and the Foremost Family Health Center Balch Springs can be the village of staff members who can continue the partnership and improve the health outcomes of this community and other communities, one patient at a time even in the midst of unexpected health pandemics.
