For your safety and to minimize potential COVID-19 exposure, we are unable to accommodate walk-ins at this time. Out of an abundance of caution, we are screening all patients via phone before scheduling any appointments. This process allows us to assess your child's symptoms so that we can provide you with the most appropriate care.

If you need to speak to a physician or nurse on call, please call Medlink at 512-323-5465.
Have a wonderful weekend!

[01/16/20]   On behalf of all the providers and staff at Lone Star Pediatrics, we are excited to announce that we have joined Texas Children’s Pediatrics. This decision was not arrived at lightly and it is our goal to provide even better service to our patients as part of this larger amazing organization.

Our partnership with Texas Children’s doesn’t change what you have come to expect at Lone Star Pediatrics. We will continue to provide excellent, personalized medical care for your family and look forward to showing off our new EMR to you the next time you are in the office.

Unfortunately, the unexpected phone troubles are making this transition more difficult. We are working diligently to resolve the issue as soon as possible. In addition, we hope to finish with the initial conversion to EMR as quickly as possible and then go back to the office we all know and love.

We have been honored to be trusted to care for your children for the past 16 years and will help in any way we can to continue on in that relationship. We appreciate your patience during this time of transition.

[01/14/20]   Thank you for being so patient while we are working on the phone issues. Time Warner will be here at 5pm so hopefully the problem will be rectified. In the meantime, we are answering phones via cell phones so it makes leaving messages very difficult. We apologize for any inconvenience.

[11/12/19]   BAD WEATHER ALERT FOR NOVEMBER 12, 2019.

Due to inclement weather, we will delay opening the clinic until 10:00 AM.
If you have a life threatening emergency, please call 911.
We will follow the RRISD school closing schedule and will continue to post all updates to our FB page.

12 Tips for Teaching Children Gratitude

One of our most treasured office visits is seeing an 18 year old for his or her last well child exam before we send them to college. We write them a "prescription for life" which includes 1) compassion 2) commitment 3) self-discipline and finally 4) gratitude. We have them tuck this prescription in their wallets and hope, along with all of the love and support from their families, that they will remember these virtues during life's ups and downs. Sometimes we are all reminded to find gratitude in the little things! Good luck to all of our new college freshman!

healthychildren.org Tired of bickering, jealousy, and selfishness? Kids are naturally materialistic and self-serving– but the good news is that gratitude can be taught. And from gratitude flows joy.

5 Things You Need to Know About Water Parks, But Probably Don’t

As temperatures climb to sweltering levels over the summer months in Austin and more families head to pools and other popular swimming holes, we want you and your children to be safe. Tragically, a child from Williamson County died Wednesday after being pulled from a public pool in Cedar Park the previous day. Our hearts go out to the family.

Only halfway through 2019, Austin-Travis County EMS medics have already responded to three drownings this year in which children younger than 10 died. That number doesn’t count the 12 other calls in Travis County for near-drownings involving children younger than 12.

In all of 2018, first responders in Travis County recorded only one child death from drowning.

Please be vigilant this summer. Drowning is a silent killer.

healthychildren.org ​As a parent, it's important to know what to look for if you are planning a trip to an indoor or outdoor water park. Here is some information and reminders from the American Academy of Pediatrics to help keep your family safe and healthy.

Anxiety in Teens is Rising: What's Going On?

We have been seeing a rise in anxiety in our teens. In fact anxiety, not depression, is the leading mental health issue among American youths, and clinicians and research both suggest it is rising. The latest study was published in April in the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics. Based on data collected from the National Survey of Children’s Health for ages 6 to 17, researchers found a 20 percent increase in diagnoses of anxiety between 2007 and 2012. (The rate of depression over that same time period ticked up 0.2 percent.). Why the increase?
Hint: put away the phones..

healthychildren.org The number of teens with anxiety disorders has been rising steadily―along with hospital admissions for teens who are suicidal. This leaves parents, teachers, and anyone who interacts with these kids with many concerning questions. Read on.
