Maternal Fetal Medicine
CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic has opened its Maternal Fetal Medicine clinic in Sulphur Springs. O.B.G.Y.N. Physician Dr. Martin Fielder says: “Having high-risk maternity care here in Sulphur Springs means our pregnant patients with the most risks won’t have to leave the county to receive specialist care. Leveraging our extensive experience with telemedicine, CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic can now offer access to the Maternal Fetal Medicine specialists in Tyler, Texas, to our patients in the Sulphur Springs service area. They will utilize the latest technology 3D/4D ultrasound machine generously gifted by our Hopkins County Health Care Foundation to evaluate and care for our high-risk mothers.” High-risk pregnancies include things such as those that involve a mother with a complicated disease process such as diabetes, heart condition, or who has experienced recurrent pregnancy loss. Some involve an unborn baby or babies with a difficult diagnosis such as congenital heart disease, a genetic disorder, or those where both mother and baby are affected by complex conditions. Our CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic providers will work to get those patients the necessary care.
CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic is prepared to support each woman’s healthcare needs at any stage of life. We offer many services and treatments, whether you come in for a routine gynecological exam, are preparing to give birth, or need treatment for a disorder. Our provider team includes Darryl Doughtie, MD; Martin Fielder, MD; and Certified Nurse Midwife Deb Logan. To schedule an appointment, please get in touch with their office at 903.439.4917.

CHRISTUS On-Demand Care
CHRISTUS Health has expanded access to health care across ministries in Texas and Louisiana with the launch of CHRISTUS On-Demand Care. These virtual visits allow patients to meet with a CHRISTUS Health caregiver through live video from their smartphone, tablet, or computer for their urgent care needs from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm every day of the week, including Saturday, Sunday, and holidays. This service compliments scheduled virtual visits already in high demand and available to new and existing patients.
Built specifically for a consumer’s health care needs, CHRISTUS On-Demand Care providers can treat anything from allergies to rashes to even the flu from the comfort of a location and at a convenient time. The virtual visit allows you to place in a queue and receive help from the first available CHRISTUS board-certified provider. If further testing like blood work or consultations is necessary, CHRISTUS On-Demand Care can also help facilitate referrals and provide other helpful instructions.
There is no additional cost associated with a CHRISTUS On-Demand Care visit. Nearly all major medical insurances cover these visits. Depending on the insurance plan, one might have a co-pay, just like seeing a provider in a traditional office setting. Medicare and Medicaid also currently cover virtual visits like CHRISTUS On-Demand.
To schedule CHRISTUS On-Demand Care, visit christushealth.org/virtual-medicine or go to your MyCHRISTUS account, formerly known as “MyChart,” and click on the virtual visit or On-Demand Care. Look for the launch of our MyCHRISTUS app coming soon!
