Philosophy:

Family medicine physician Jennifer Saurette, MD, takes pride in helping the families of East Texas make good choices that will keep them healthy. “One of the biggest contributions that I can make is to educate people about making decisions that aid in the prevention of diseases.”
Dr. Saurette treats all ages of patients at the ETMC First Physicians clinic on South Broadway in Tyler. However, as a mother she takes special interest in adolescent medicine. “I understand the stages that families deal with as children grow.”
After graduating with honors from college, medical school and her residency program, Dr. Saurette had a choice of where to practice family medicine. She chose ETMC. “Doing my residency at the UT Health Science Center in Tyler gave me an opportunity to view the high quality of care that ETMC provides.”
