Lang Family Medicine has been serving the community of DFW for over 40 years. Founding Dr. Howard Lang and his son Dr. Derek Lang have both studied osteopathic medicine with a specialty in environmental medicine, which teaches the simple concept that there are causes for all illnesses, and the obvious but not well accepted fact, that what we eat or are exposed to in our environment, has a direct effect upon our health. Both Derek and Howard Lang serve as primary care doctors to many and take a natural approach as much as possible.
But perhaps even more than the answers they provide, these physicians are known most for the level of care they provide for each person that walks in their door. Spending an unorthodox amount of time getting to know each patient, it quickly becomes clear that profit and efficiency is second to their love for educating, empathizing with, and ministering to the soul in front of them. They embody the call to love God and love people, and THIS is what I am most excited about learning.
"If you’re wishing for a doctor who would listen to your story and encourage you to be involved in your own treatment, you’ve found a friend. If you want to get to the root of your issues, then you’ll find great minds here that think like you. If you’re looking for a place where medical care uses keen insight but feels old-fashioned, welcome home." - Lang Family Medicine
If you're not feeling your best, and you would describe your symptoms as chronic, or more gradual over time, Lang Family Medicine may suggest starting with diet and lifestyle as a powerful way to address the "low hanging fruit" (no pun intended) without jumping to medical treatment. If this is you, you'll start your journey with me and we'll take a deeper look at what's going on. Often, we can do so much just by looking at your daily habits and care may stay between us. But sometimes, there is a real pathological reason behind your symptoms, and one that may need the attention of a physician. I am trained to recognize when this is the case, and when needed I will work closely with an LFM doctor to make sure you're getting the care you need, while still making helpful diet and lifestyle choices along the way.
If you're an existing patient of Lang Family Medicine, chances are you've heard the doctor explain how critical diet and lifestyle are for healing. He probably told you that a large portion of your healing would come through getting your nutrition right, and sent you here to me to help with that. I'll be caught up to speed on what you've covered so far with the doctor and work in collaboration with him to compliment your treatment plan.
Lang Family Medicine and Salt + Light Nutrition have created an exclusive partnership to serve both our clients better. This is more than a referral agreement - we have integrated our processes to create a smooth experience for patients to have access to nutrition services, medical care, functional testing and treatments (+ more) performed by practitioners who will directly collaborate on your care. Because we recognize these two truths: no medical treatment is complete without the right diet and lifestyle choices, and sometimes diet and lifestyle alone aren't strong enough for complete healing. Together, our goal is to care for each individual patient to the highest degree to address the root problems and create sustainable health.
