Nurse Checking Girl


We are four experienced pediatric emergency room physicians excited to serve the children of Beeville and the surrounding areas. After working years in various emergency departments in the country, treating ill and injured children,  we believe the time is right for us to contribute to our community to bolster the need for primary care in children. We believe every child has the right to receive equitable and quality of care. From well child visits to vaccinations, sick visits and for minor cuts, bruises and broken bones, we will treat you and your children as our family. We are also going to provide televisits, should you decide to choose one. We have our onsite lab to test for Strep, Flu, Covid-19 and some basic blood work. Please go through the website, learn about our providers and let us know what we can do for you. We are here to answer any questions you may have. 

Thank you for trusting us with your children.
