Family medicine physician joins Belleville Family Health Center
BELLEVILLE – Southern Illinois Healthcare Foundation has announced that Terrance L. Craion, M.D. has joined the family medicine department at Belleville Family Health Center.
Craion, along with Brandy Holthaus, CNP, offers families care for both their primary and acute care needs.
Craion (shown left) is currently accepting new patients at Belleville Family Health Center, 180 South Third in Belleville, and appointments can be scheduled by calling (618) 222-4701.
Craion said he works to build relationships with patients by helping them become advocates for their own health. “I am here to service my patients, to work for them,” he said. “Therefore, I’m committed to go beyond the ‘required tasks.’ For me, it’s a partnership, not a dictatorship, to help patients understand and take ownership of their health.”
Craion earned his medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine in Dominica, West Indies, and completed his residency through Saint Louis University School of Medicine Family Practice Residency Program in Belleville. In addition, he has a special interest in sports medicine, having volunteered as a team physician for the boys’ football and basketball teams at O’Fallon Township High School in O’Fallon, Ill.
The doctor is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and the Illinois Academy of Family Physicians.
