Family: I met my husband at Children’s where he was my senior resident. We lived in San Francisco while he completed a pediatric critical care fellowship and moved back home to Dallas in 2008. We have two wonderful daughters that were born in our home with a midwife in 2010 and 2012. We spend a lot of time in our kitchen like most families. We do our best to cook healthy organic vegetarian meals but we also spend time making LOTS of coffee and baking bread. We have 3 hens in our backyard who make amusing pets and delicious eggs.
About Our Practice:
At Home Pediatrics was a practice designed for families, not doctors. A mother with four children suggested that I start a house-call practice after residency. At the time I thought she was nuts! Then, as I became a parent myself, I realized how frustrating it is to navigate a telephone triage system with a sick child; or to sit in a “well” waiting room for 45 minutes while the family next to you is blowing their nose. Our practice offers the ultimate in care and convenience for families.
Why Should I choose At Home Pediatrics?
I limit my practice size to 100 children at a time. This is microscopic compared to the usual 2,000+ patients a private pediatrician takes on. With this small size, I can ensure that I will get to know your child and your family personally. My clients call and text me directly at any time day or night. When their children are sick, I will come to them and see the children in the comfort of their home. It is an old fashioned and simple model of healthcare that predates insurance companies.
