Progressive Physician Associates
Best Internal Medicine Doctor in Northeast Tarrant County
Carl Middleton, MD, MPH always knew he wanted to become a doctor. “I don’t know that I’ve ever thought about doing anything else,” he says. “It’s one of those things that chose me.”
Today, Dr. Middleton is doing what he set out to do — helping as many people as possible. Together with Naja Thomas, MD, MPH, he’s proud to provide full-service internal medicine and family practice services at Progressive Physician Associates (PPA).
The practice offers a full range of services for patients ages five and up. Whether you need screening for illnesses or management of chronic diseases, PPA is ready to provide complete care under one roof.
Patients throughout the Metroplex have come to rely on Drs. Middleton and Thomas to care for their whole family. In fact, Living readers voted Dr. Middleton as the Best Internal Medicine Doctor in Fort Worth in 2023.
One patient says, “Both doctors are incredibly experienced and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend them to anyone.” Another states, “Dr. Middleton makes you feel very comfortable and explains everything to make sure that you understand. I am so glad I found him.”
If you’re one of the millions of Americans who feel burdened by the high cost of healthcare, you don’t have to postpone physician visits or go without care. PPA offers a “Health Care When You Need It Plan” aka high-deductible/cash plan.
“Our high-deductible/cash plan aims to assist the uninsured, underinsured, individuals with rising premiums/deductibles and limited healthcare options as well as employers,” says
Here’s how it works: Patients prepay $550 to $1,100 and receive a range of visits for the year with the primary care doctor. For example, you can bring your kids for things like sports physicals or sick visits or come in yourself for things like chronic disease management, annual physicals, and more.
“We’re proud to offer this for people whose jobs don’t provide insurance or who may be between insurance,” says Dr. Middleton. He adds that some patients with insurance choose to purchase the plan simply because of how high their insurance deductibles are. “Should they need a specialist or a procedure, they can use their insurance,” he says. “People who use it really like it and appreciate it.”
PPA also offers concierge medicine that gives you 24/7 access to Dr. Middleton or Dr. Thomas. You also benefit from longer appointment times, Saturday and after-hours appointments, and direct hospital admissions (when possible). Signing up is easy — just call your insurance and ask to have Dr. Middleton as your primary care doctor.
