Dr. Nelon has been an avid bicyclist for years and hopes that his body can continue to endure for years to come.


Dr. B. Craig Nelon is a native of Fort Worth, Texas, where he attended Fort Worth Public Schools and graduated from Eastern Hills High School. He received his undergraduate degree from Texas Christian University in 1975 prior to attending the University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTHSC) in Fort Worth. He is a board-certified family physician who earned his medical degree in 1982, then finished his post-doctorate training at Dallas Memorial Hospital in 1983.

He considers it an honor to help tutor and guide medical students, interns, and residents in experiencing family practice medicine first-hand.
