Data Source:Texas Medical Board - October 9, 2008

Includes: Active primary care physicians with Texas practice addresses and a practice type of direct patient care. Primary Care Physicians are those physicians that indicate a primary speciality of: Family Practice/Medicine, General Practice, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and/or Gynecology, or Geriatrics (Geriatrics was included for the first time in 2004). The mailing address was substituted for those records that did not contain a practice address.

Excludes: Federal and military physicians, residents and fellows.

Due to changes in the methodology of the file preparation, Researchers and Faculty were counted (for the first time) if they also indicated Direct Medical/Patient Care. This resulted in an additional 240 records (229 Faculty and 11 Researchers) above the usual yearly increase. For more information, see Physician File Preparation Methodology.

Prepared by: Texas Department of State Health Services, Center for Health Statistics, Health Professions Resource Center, December 9, 2008.
