About Us

Brashear Family Medical first opened in March of 2007, when Dr. Ben Brashear began seeing patients part-time in Kaufman Community Clinic. Dr. Brashear and his office manager Cheryl Johnson moved to the current location in Prairie Creek Crossing Business Park in Kaufman a few months later, in May of 2007. Dr. Brashear was granted admitting privileges at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman in October of 2007, where he remains active on the medical staff.

In 2006, Dr. Brashear began to work as a Hospice Team Physician and acquired Board Certification in Hospice and Palliative Medicine in November of 2010. He currently serves as Medical Director for the Kaufman branch of Solaris Hospice.

Dr. Brashear also serves as Medical Director of Sunflower Park Healthcare Center and Kemp Care Center, which are local skilled nursing facilities and long-term care centers. He currently admits to several local skilled nursing facilities and, along with Mr. Warren Cave, makes regular rounds on over 200 residents at facilities in the greater Kaufman area.

The clinic staff currently includes three Certified Family Nurse Practitioners. Mr. Warren Cave has been a provider for Brashear Family Medical since October of 2011.Mr. Cave is also a Certified Medical Examiner on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's National Registry and qualified to perform DOT physical exams. Mrs. Rebecca Wolfe and Mrs. Crystal Lucas joined the practice in 2013 and 2014, respectively.

For the convenience of our patients, appointments are available as early as 7:30 AM on most mornings, throughout the lunch hour, and as late as 5:45 PM or 6:45 PM on Wednesdays and Thursdays, respectively.

Family-focused medical care is a broad area to cover, but we at Brashear Family Medical realize that each patient will want and need an individualized treatment plan. With an emphasis on current preventive health guidelines, and in response to the ever-changing healthcare environment, the providers and staff at Brashear Family Medical are committed to addressing the concerns of our patients. We see healthcare as a partnership between patients and providers, and we invite you and your family to join us today!
