Dr. Jeffrey Bullard

PARTNER

Jeffrey M. Bullard, MD is founder of MaxHealth Medical Associates. Bullard was a pioneer in changing the old, accepted norm of long wait times and hurried, impersonal medical care. Two decades ago he structured schedules that allowed for both scheduled appointments and walk-in appointments every day throughout the day, later coined the ‘open access’ model.

Still more impressively, when his current practice, MaxHealth Family and Sports Medicine, opened its doors in 1998, it boasted an entirely electronic record system, a rarity at that time. As a result of his innovative thinking, Dr. Bullard was featured in the Dallas-Fort Worth Healthcare Journal, in recognition of his progressive approach.

As a strong advocate in utilizing cutting edge technology and services to improve the scope and delivery of medical care, Bullard designed a center utilized to evaluate, educate and engage patients on their path to health. The center is actually a collection of clinics that address nutrition, weight loss, physical fitness, brain health and mental health, physical medicine and rehabilitation, sports medicine, cardiovascular health and chronic disease. The center’s concept is now nationally recognized and Bullard and his center are frequently featured in healthcare publications.

Bullard founded Acuity Brain Center, which utilizes a variety of modern technologies to assess patients and help address their mental and brain health needs. In an effort to make evaluating psychological and cognitive issues more systematic and manageable, Bullard developed the series of questionnaires. In 2011, Bullard automated the questionnaires and cofounded AssessMD, a cloud-based, iPad administered mental health evaluation tool.

In 2013, Bullard founded Vault, a behavioral health assessment, tracking and patient engagement tool. Vault is currently utilized to evaluate patients for numerous neuropsychological and behavioral conditions including MDD, GAD, pain and obesity and is utilized by Accountable Care Organizations, Clinically Integrated Networks, Independent Physician Associations and a wide variety of specialties including family physicians, internist, and pediatricians across the country. Vault is being utilized as a research tool by the University of North Texas’ Experimental Psychology Department. Vault was also selected as the neuropsychiatric testing tool used to evaluate retried players for inclusion in the retired player disability plan (88 Plan) and the concussion lawsuit settlement. To date, Bullard has authored over forty assessments that are used by healthcare providers across the country in caring for their patients with mental illness.

Bullard has served as CMO for the national weight loss franchise, Thinique Medical Weight Loss Centers. He is a member of the Board of Governors as well as a Medical Director for Catalyst Health Network, a Dallas-Fort Worth based commercial accountable care organization responsible for the care of 1,000,000 patient lives. Bullard serves as a member of the advisory boards of multiple healthcare companies. Additionally, he functions as CMO of MaxHealth Family and Sports Medicine, Medical Director of Acuity Brain Center, Medical Director of MaxFitness Peak Performance and Personal Training Gym, Medical Director of MaxWellness Weight Loss Clinic and founder and CMO  Elevate Health Clinics Traumatic Brain Injury and Neurology clinics and Elevate HRT clinics.

Bullard has been honored by being voted a “Top Doc” of Fort Worth multiple times by his peers. He has also been featured repeatedly on the television show Top Docs of DFW. Dr. Bullard has addressed members of Congress in Washington D.C. regarding limitations in access to care and, as a representative of the Texas Academy of Family Physicians, has testified before the Texas Congress on the challenges of addressing mental health. Additionally, Bullard frequently speaks as a recognized leader in integrating behavioral health in primary care, increasing practice workflow efficiencies and leveraging technology to improve the patient experience and patient care.

In addition to serving as the President of the Academy of Asthma and Allergy in Primary Care (AAAPC), Bullard is a member of the Medical Advisors Board for the AAAPC and is a member of the Texas Medical Association’s Committee on Primary Care and the Medical Home and has been appointed to the Texas Academy of Family Physician’s Behavioral Health Task Force.
