"Jason, my eldest son, and Marcus, my youngest are both dealing with depression. Because of that they are having some issues with weight. Put them in for depression conseling but our therapist, Dr. Gray suggested we put them in the children's weight loss program. Since weight gain is intertwined with depression i agreed but I didnt really think it would have much of a difference. Everytime they come back from a session they are both different children. They have made friends and found support through the weight loss program and actually have fun working out with the other children in the program. Soso grateful thank you!"- M.F. / Google / Mar 21, 2022
"my husband heard about bhfs on google so we decided to give it a try for my daughter Landrea since our primary doctor has been booked due to covid. We did a walk in and their receptionist got us in, in 10 minutes. She was treated so warmly compared to our other doctor. They had us feeling like family. Sat us down, asked about our medical history and truly got to know us. You can't get that just anywhere. Thinking about coming here permanently."- N.E. / Google / Mar 21, 2022

What Medical Screenings are Offered?
We offer a wide range of medical screenings at our Lewisville, TX office for people in all stages of life. With these screenings, we can help you understand your overall health, create treatment plans as necessary, and monitor future progress. Some of the more common screenings we offer include:
- Cholesterol: During this screening, your finger will be poked with a small needle to produce a tiny drop of blood to measure your levels. Your cholesterol should be checked every 4 – 6 years.
- TB (tuberculosis) testing: A tuberculin skin test (TST) is used to determine your diagnosis. During this test, a fluid called tuberculin is carefully injected into the forearm. The patient must return within 2 – 3 days to have a medical professional evaluate their reaction.
- Pulmonary function: During this test, the amount of air that is inhaled and exhaled is measured, as well as how efficiently oxygen is transferred to your blood to help identify lung disease, the cause of irregular breathing, and shortness of breath.
- Pre-employment screenings: Pre-employment screenings make sure a job applicant can safely perform the jobs they apply for and are an important part of workforce safety. There are several types of pre-employment services, and depending on your industry, you may use just one type or all of them.
Depending on the outcome of these screenings, we will schedule follow-up visits to help you monitor any conditions and maintain your overall health.
