Bringing Women’s Health Services to Downtown Azle

Individuals in the Azle community no longer have to travel far to receive optimal gynecologic care from Texas Health physicians.

Under the leadership of Darren Tate, M.D., OB/GYN on staff at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Azle, residents in and around Azle will have access to a full array of gynecologic services every Wednesday at the hospital’s downtown clinic.

“We wanted to make the same care you’d receive in a major metropolitan area available and more convenient for the residents of Azle,” says Dr. Tate. “Today’s gynecology practice can stray from the personal patient care approach and, instead, take on a model of what’s more convenient for the physician. My focus is really trying to bring back the art of medicine that has been lost — building a true relationship between patient and physician — while still offering the latest technologies and procedures.”

Some of the gynecologic services Dr. Tate and Texas Health Azle provide include:

• Annual exams

• Endometriosis treatment

• Hormone replacement therapy

• Infertility treatments

• Menopausal care

• Sonograms

• Tubal ligation and reversal

• Urogynecology for incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction

“My goal is to have a practice that has a family/community feel,” says Dr. Tate. “We want to reach out to our community and let patients know they can receive high-quality care locally and comfortably.”
