Ben Edwards - I was born and raised in Belton, Texas. I grew up watching both of my granddads practice “old school” country doctoring. They were general practitioners who might be found doing anything from delivering a baby, to amputating a leg, to sitting for an entire hour counseling a crying patient. Early on, I knew that I wanted to be that kind of doctor, one who took care of the entire family from cradle to grave. I wanted to work with the whole body and the whole family.

I received my undergraduate degree from Baylor University, and later graduated from UT-Houston Medical School. Then my wife, Jamie, and I moved to Waco to complete my training at the Waco Family Practice Residency Program where I was Chief Resident. After graduation, the Lord directed us to West Texas and the Garza County Health Clinic in Post, TX.

Then, I had a divine appointment that would change the course of my life. Through witnessing an “incurable” disease get fully reversed in my nurse practitioner, I was introduced to an area of medicine I had never been taught. It was time for me to move on to what the Lord designed me to be - a physician who treats the whole patient - mind, body, and spirit.
