Pediatric Care in Our Community!

With nearly a century of combined experience caring for El Paso's families, our Board-Certified Pediatricians at our new community clinics provide specialized care for children 0-17 years old!

Your family will receive the most dependable and affordable high quality healthcare from our team of Board-Certified pediatric physicians, nurse practitioners and multi-disciplinary medical professionals, all working in our community, close to your home. 

Primary, Preventative and Follow-up Care to include:

  • Well Child Visits
  • Texas Vaccines for Children
  • School/Sports Physicals
  • Disease Management
  • Texas Health Steps

You and your child will also have access to our full retail Pharmacy, Laboratory and Imaging services--all available, onsite at each of our new community clinics. We are your convenient, one-stop medical home for you and your children. 


To better serve you, we are open Monday through Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.

We know it is hard to predict when your child needs to see a doctor, that is why we accept "walk-in" appointments--as well as same-day appointments.
