The list of terrifying symptoms that require an ER visit for a sick child is not one that most parents like to linger over.

Each of the seven locations has a team of experienced Pediatric Specialists ready to care for the children of San Antonio. Find your closest location here:

She and her husband met at Texas A&M and started their marriage in Minnesota. After six years of very cold winters, they returned to Texas. Michelle has two kids (12 and 9), along with a very quirky rescue dog and two rather cute guinea pigs. A former corporate food scientist turned part-time yoga instructor, she still takes her food very seriously—she just doesn’t get paid for it anymore. She is fueled by tea, cold brew coffee, yoga, dog walking, books and quickly googling answers to her kids eleventy million questions.
