Specializing in the general care of children from head to toe and from birth through high school

Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's pediatricians manage children's overall health and are the first doctors patients see when they are ill. They are the "medical home" for your child because they are the physicians your child will see most often, providing checkups and immunizations and monitoring your child's growth and development.

Our Central Texas doctors are trained in the specific conditions, diseases, and disorders that affect children and coordinate with pediatric specialists for further care.

Primary care services we offer

Our Central Texas pediatricians care for children as they grow from infancy to young adulthood. Together, we build a relationship that enhances your child’s health and offers continuity of care as they mature.

Well-child checkups

During their growth and development, children should have scheduled checkups each year. Infants should see their pediatrician more often. During these appointments, your pediatrician will assess your child’s health and address any concerns you might have.

What can I expect during each well-child visit?


During appointments with your pediatrician, your child will get scheduled vaccines, an essential aspect of preventive healthcare. These immunizations are safe and effective and have saved millions of lives worldwide over the past half-century.

What immunizations should my child receive?

Acute care

Our pediatricians evaluate and treat all illnesses and minor injuries—from strep throat and rashes to fractures—in infants, children and adolescents. In Temple, our pediatricians also collaborate with other pediatric medical specialists to treat urgent problems that arise in children with chronic conditions, such as asthma and diabetes.

Growth and behavior assessment

Our general pediatricians are specialists who understand growth and development. They can assess your child’s well-being at regular checkups and address abnormal conditions. They are also a useful “front line” of care to evaluate school, behavior and mental health issues. They can help you access the appropriate care needed.

Schedule an appointment with a pediatrician

Your routine well-child visit can double as a sports physical

As long as your visit is scheduled within six months before sports participation, your pediatrician can sign the paperwork to approve your child's participation in sports — without a second visit.
