Adam Duran, MD, is a board-certified family medicine physician at UT Health East Texas Physicians in Carthage who was born and raised in Henderson. From an early age, Dr. Duran knew he not only wanted to raise a family in rural East Texas, but he also wanted to practice in the field of medicine with an emphasis in trauma. However, the day he stepped through the doors of North Caddo Medical Center in Vivian, La., his mind changed and he knew it was his calling to practice rural family medicine. "I knew this was what the Lord had planned for me to do."

"From the moment I walked in the door, I knew this was how the art and science of medicine should be practiced. I wanted to be trained by the best to perform family medicine the traditional way." During his rural family medicine residency at North Caddo, Dr. Duran was trained by the well-known Dr. John Haynes, a founding member of the American Board of Family Medicine.

Dr. Duran treats patients of all ages with a full range of medical needs, whether it's in the clinic, emergency room or hospital. "I was trained to treat pretty much anything and everything, and to make sure that people have access to the best care possible without having to travel out of town."

Dr. Duran became my PCP after moving here five years ago! He came highly recommended by a good friend. Being an RN, I am so grateful to find such a wonderful, experienced Physician. Dr. Duran not only is an excellent Physician, but he genuinely cares about his patients, and community. Dr. Duran’s staff are an excellent addition to his office team.

Always caring

Dr. Duran is friendly and very good at diagnosing health issues. When I was a patient in his Weightloss clinic I lost 30 pounds. I’m really happy he provides healthcare in our community. I would recommend him to all my family and friends. In fact, he treats my whole family.

Dr. Duran is more than just your physician, he has a genuine concern for his patients, their families and the community he serves.

   — Shane King


I love Dr. Duran! He is a very kind person who seems to really care about the wellbeing of his patients. I can only give 4 stars because I wish the office was open on Fridays so patients could pick up prescriptions that the office forgot to call about on Thursday. I called in for a refill first thing this morning, and I never got a call back to let me know it was ready to be picked up. Now, I’m stuck without my medication until Tuesday morning since I can’t pick it up to be filled until Monday.
