MD Pediatric Associates is a premier North Texas pediatric center with an experienced team of pediatricians and advanced practice providers founded in 1991.
We’ve been treating newborns to young adults at our private medical practice since we opened our doors, and today, we serve young patients and their families at two state-of-the-art offices, in Coppell and Flower Mound.
Your child’s medical needs are as important to us as they are to you. That’s why we strive to work with your family’s schedule, offering after-hours and Saturday sick care and well visits, as well as a round-the-clock registered pediatric nurse call line.
We also know that sometimes, your child’s medical needs can’t wait. To give our patients an affordable, convenient alternative to urgent care or the emergency room, we reserve a block of same-day Fast-track Care appointments each day to ensure that your child gets the care they need, when they need it.
