Our goal is to provide convenient care for preventative healthcare needs and unexpected, non-life-threatening minor illnesses and injuries.

In addition to providing primary care services, we are committed to caring for the whole child by addressing all areas of their well-being, including physical, mental, developmental, behavioral, and other realms of health and wellness. We collaborate closely with physicians and other partners in the community, including pediatric hospitalists, emergency department physicians, and subspecialists at Dell Children’s Medical Center, to schedule and coordinate any additional care services your child may need.

We also collaborate with our colleagues at the Dell Medical School and The University of Texas at Austin to utilize the latest research, diagnostic, and treatment techniques, allowing us to deliver highly specialized care and offer personalized treatment options with a focus on increasing your child’s overall quality of life.

At your children’s preventive health visit, we will discuss your child’s overall health, development, growth, behavior, nutrition, and sleeping habits as well as address any additional questions or concerns you may have. Each visit will include a comprehensive physical exam, any age-appropriate vaccines as determined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) immunization schedule, and any age-appropriate screenings, such as vision tests, hearing tests, and lab work.

For acute care visits, we will conduct a thorough physical exam, perform any appropriate diagnostic testing, and develop a personalized treatment plan.
